Following up on my “way too early 53-man roster prediction” that I dropped back in May, quite a bit of things have changed in regards to the Philadelphia Eagles roster. They’ve released some mildly notable players, added a new quarterback, and of course Zach Ertz remains on the team (despite initial reports indicating that he could have been traded as early as the draft).
With clarity continuing to emerge when it comes to how Howie Roseman is planning to construct his Week 1 roster, here’s an updated look at the 53-man roster from a predictive standpoint.
Way too early look at the Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster (July edition):

Jalen Hurts, Joe Flacco, Nick Mullens
The first notable change from last month’s edition to this month’s, the Philadelphia Eagles have a new QB3 in the building. After releasing the likes of standout undrafted free agent Jamie Newman, the team went out and added former 49er Nick Mullens.
Mullens has somewhat surprisingly started a good number of games for San Francisco over the past few seasons, which makes him a prime candidate to receive QB2 duties later down the road.
He’s coming off a season-ending injury, but he should be a lock to make this year’s team. I can’t see a reason for Roseman to sign him this late in the process just to cut him if he has a shaky training camp.
Jalen Hurts is obviously still your starter, with Joe Flacco sliding in as the current backup. I don’t expect anything to change in regards to those two anytime soon.
