LeRibeus, 28, has the most NFL experience of the trio, as he started 11 games for Washington as recently as 2015. The former third-round pick didn’t make the Redskins’ roster in 2016 after having re-signed on a one-year deal. After spending last season on the workout circuit, LeRibeus eventually inked a futures contract with Philadelphia in January. Having played more than 700 offensive snaps in 2015, and offering the ability to play both guard and center, LeRibeus could find a role as a backup interior lineman in the near future.

Watson, meanwhile, has bounced around since entering the league as an undrafted free agent out of Azusa Pacific 2015. Before joining the Eagles last December, the 23-year-old Watson had spent time with the Bengals, Browns, and Broncos. Promoted to Philadelphia’s active roster at the tail end of last season, Watson appeared in his first career NFL game in Week 17, rushing nine times for 28 yards and one touchdown.
