3. Johnathan Cyprien

Would Philadelphia actually move on from Johnathan Cyprien before the safety even played in a single game during the regular season?

Back at the beginning of August, the Eagles knew they had nothing to lose when they signed Cyprien to a one-year deal after he was released by the Tennessee Titans a few months before.

Unfortunately, Cyprien was already at a major disadvantage after missing all of last year due to a torn ACL, and depending on what the Eagles decide with other players, he could end up being the odd-man out as far as cuts are concerned.

Despite how impressive Cyprien has looked for the coaching staff at times over the last few weeks, this doesn’t necessarily guarantee a roster spot.

While there are plenty of positions the Eagles will face difficult decisions on, safety could be near the top of the list when it comes to Cyprien since they would love to see him return to the level from a few years ago before the injury.

At least if Philadelphia does end up deciding to move on from Cyprien, it may be one of the easier moves since as mentioned before, he hasn’t even played a single game with the team since the safety has only been around since August.
