Sunday NFL Transactions: NFC East

Listed below are the Sunday roster moves for the four NFC East teams. Following the 53-man roster cutdown deadline yesterday, many teams will make slight tweaks to their rosters, claiming players off waivers or signing guys who clear waivers. Those transactions for the Cowboys, Giants, Eagles, and Redskins are noted below.

Additionally, as of 12:00pm CT today, teams can begin constructing their 10-man practice squads. You can check out our glossary entry on practice squads to brush up on those changes, as well as all the other guidelines that govern the 10-man units, whose players practice with the team but aren’t eligible to suit up on Sundays.

Washington Redskins

Eagles Reach 53-Man Limit

The Eagles dropped 17 players from the roster on Saturday in order to make the 53-man max:

Gerry was a fifth-round pick of the Eagles, so it’s a surprise to see that he did not make the cut. Then again, he had the tough task of converting from safety to linebacker this offseason, so the transition could take a little longer. He could be a candidate for the Eagles’ practice squad.

Eagles Shopping Offensive Linemen

Earlier today, the Eagles were reportedly trying to trade offensive lineman Josh Kline, whom they thought they had just acquired from the Patriots. That deal hit a snag, and though the larger framework of the swap remains in place, Kline won’t be going to Philadelphia. The Eagles, however, are now shopping offensive lineman that they do have under contract, including interior options Stefen Wisniewski and Josh Andrews, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com (Twitter links)."<strong

Wisniewski, 28, signed a one-year, $1.51MM deal with the Eagles this offseason that contains $500K fully guaranteed. That guarantee all came in the form of a signing bonus, however, so any acquiring team would only be on the hook for minimum base salary and (perhaps) his $250K roster bonus, depending on when it was/is paid. Wisniewski can also earn another $1.25MM through incentives.

Although Wisniewski isn’t one of the NFL’s elite offensive linemen, he has been fairly consistent and reliable since entering the league. In 2015, Pro Football Focus viewed him as a middle-of-the-pack center, ranking him 19th out of 39 qualified players and assigning him an especially strong grade as a pass blocker.

Andrews, 25, is listed as Philadelphia’s third-string center behind Jason Kelce and Wisniewski. An undrafted free agent in 2014, Andrews is under contract for two more seasons at minimum salaries. He appeared in 13 games last season, but played only 59 total snaps, all on special teams.

Additionally, as of 11:00am CT today, teams can begin constructing their 10-man practice squads. For the 2014 and 2015 seasons, changes were made to practice squad rules that allow teams to carry eight players instead of 10, and the eligibility requirements for those extra two spots were also loosened.
