Eagles Reach 53-Man Limit

The Eagles have gotten down to 53, making some notable cuts to get there. The team released guard/center Stefen Wisniewski, who they re-signed to a $1.5MM deal back in May. He had gotten $150K guaranteed, so Philly will eat that. Wisniewski had started at least six games in each of the past three seasons for the Eagles.

To help thin out their crowded running backs room, they got rid of a few well-known names. They waived Josh Adams, who rushed for 511 yards for them last year, as well as 2017 fourth-round pick Donnel Pumphrey, who has battled injuries ever since entering the league. They also cut Wendell Smallwood, who had 364 yards rushing and three touchdowns and another 230 yards and two touchdowns through the air last year.

Offensive tackle Brett Toth also failed to make the team. Toth only recently got permission from the Army to join the NFL, and he signed with the Eagles only a couple weeks ago. He seems like a prime candidate for a practice squad spot.

Browns Place CB Terrance Mitchell On IR

The Browns have placed cornerback Terrance Mitchell on injured reserve and promoted defensive back Jeremiah McKinnon from the practice squad, the club announced today.

Cleveland head coach Hue Jackson announced Sunday that Mitchell would miss time after suffering a broken wrist, but the Browns have now decided that Mitchell’s recovery timeline will necessitate an IR trip. Mitchell will be forced by league rule to miss eight games, but he could conceivably be activated later this season. A free agent signing earlier this year, Mitchell had two forced fumbles, one of which he recovered himself, and an interception while grading as the No. 72 corner among 110 qualifiers, per Pro Football Focus.

With Mitchell sidelined, the Browns will now need to decide who starts opposite No. 1 cornerback Denzel Ward. On Cleveland’s latest depth chart, E.J. Gaines is listed as a starting outside corner, leaving T.J. Carrie — who joined Mitchell and Gaines as 2018 free agent additions — in the slot. Denzel Rice, Tavierre Thomas, and McKinnon could also be in line for additional snaps, especially if more injuries occur.
