With OTAs behind us, NFL teams are now focused on mandatory camps as well as training camps. The NFL released the preseason schedule on Friday, meaning real football is going to be here before we know it. The Philadelphia Eagles, kick things off Aug. 9 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Their regular season opener is just under one month later as they travel to Brazil to face the Green Bay Packers. Of course, before we worry too much about all of that, the roster needs to be cut to 53 players. With that goal in mind, here are three Eagles on thin ice following OTAs.

3. Parris Campbell, Wide Receiver

A promising career at Ohio State led to Parris Campbell being selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Injuries slowed him down during his four years in Indy but he had a promising campaign in 2022, going for 623 yards and three touchdowns on 63 receptions.

He joined the New York Giants in the offseason but was hardly a factor. Campbell picked up just 104 yards on 20 receptions with no touchdowns. Of course, their offense was a mess, so the decline might not have been all his fault.

The Eagles believe this could be the case, which is why they brought him in on a one-year deal. The problem for him is how crowded things have become around him.

Philly selected Ainias Smith and Johnny Wilson late in the 2024 NFL Draft. They also picked up John Ross, which was an unexpected move. Campbell is still listed as the slot receiver, but Smith could push him for his job.
