10 takeaways from the eight practice of Eagles’ training camp

The Eagles are set to start preparation for the preseason opener against the Ravens on Saturday, and they have some changes to the 90-man roster.

Philadelphia is entering Week 3 of its 2023 training camp, and the roster has seen some overhaul.

Philadelphia returned with a revamped defense and the league’s most explosive offensive unit.

The Eagles will have three more practices and a walkthrough before Saturday evening’s huge matchup against Baltimore.

With the Birds returning to practice, here is an updated 90-man roster by jersey number after the first week of camp, and several roster moves.

2020 draft class

Hurts and Quez Watkins are the only remaining players from the 2020 draft class on the Eagles roster.

Hurts is an MVP candidate and Watkins has been solid, but it was the Reagor mistake over Justin Jefferson that caused Howie Roseman to change his draft approach.

Joseph Ngata is coming

Zaccheaus is going to make an impact in multiple ways, and he’ll be an under-the-radar, efficient deep threat.

The Eagles avoided adding more than one wide receiver in free agency and a big reason is due to the role that Swift will play in the passing game.
