For an Eagles receiving corps decimated by injury last season, Travis Fulgham played a big role. But the team did not see enough this year to carry the young pass catcher onto its 53-man roster.
The Eagles are waiving Fulgham, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com tweets. While the former sixth-round pick could end up on Philadelphia’s practice squad, he will be an interesting name on the waiver wire. Fulgham is attached to an $850K base salary for this season. He will be a restricted free agent in 2022.
With Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Jalen Reagor down for a stretch last season, Fulgham stepped up. He caught a game-winning touchdown pass to help the depleted Eagles past the 49ers and ended his season with 38 receptions for 539 yards and three touchdowns. Prior to last season, however, Fulgham had never caught a pass as a pro.
Philly has since made some moves at receiver, most notably drafting DeVonta Smith in the first round. The team still has Reagor, its 2020 first-round pick, along with J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (Round 2, 2019) and 2020 sixth-round pick Quez Watkins.

Dumb, he has shown far better flashes than JJAW ever could hope for. To keep JJAW just to justify the draft slot wasted on him is idiotic.
Sorry dude I commented before I even read replies but it’s obvious we agree
That’s dumb. Travis can play. He’s better than Watkins and probably Whiteside too.
you haven’t been watching if you’d cut Quez over him
I’ve been watching and no reason we couldn’t carry him as a 5th option no matter who had to go ♂️
Good pick up I had him in fantasy he was outstanding but the Eagle s just got to many Good Receivers.
shows how bad he was that JJ beat him out
They did say he wasn’t having a good camp. But he’s proven more in a one month stretch of NFL action than JJAW.
if the rumors about his work ethic are true however, it may not really matter – and it’s possible they add a veteran WR anyway and both are gone in the end.
