Roster Tracker: Eagles waive two tight ends, QB Ian Book as cuts get underway
The Eagles have until Tuesday afternoon to trim down their roster from 90 to 53 players.
They began that process on Saturday, waiving tight ends Dan Arnold and Tyree Jackson. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero was first to report the news.
The #Eagles are releasing veteran TE Dan Arnold, per source. Arnold is still only 28 and Philly is doing the vet a solid by getting him out there before the rush.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 26, 2023
The #Eagles also are waiving TE Tyree Jackson, per source. An intriguing athlete who had five catches for 72 yards in the preseason and could get claimed.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 26, 2023
Arnold was signed in March to compete for a role in training camp but failed to impress this summer. His most productive season came in 2020 with Arizona, where he logged 31 receptions for 438 yards and 4 TDs.
From an athletic standpoint, Tyree Jackson was an intriguing prospect. He has good hands and speed for his size (6’7, 249 pounds), but injuries have kept Jackson from developing. The Eagles could keep him around on the practice squad if Jackson clears waivers.
Philadelphia appears content with the same three TEs they rostered last season: Dallas Goedert, Jack Stoll, and Grant Calcaterra. All players waived from now through Tuesday’s cutdown deadline are on waivers until noon ET on Wednesday.
