The Eagles made a big decision last week

Black Brandon Graham Jerseys , letting backup quarterback Nick Foles go unfettered into free agency.They were able to do so because their starter appears to be on track to be well soon.According to Jeff McLane of the , Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is expected to he fully healthy and ready to participate when the Eagles begin their offseason program in April.Of course, if there was any concern about his condition Brandon Graham Jerseys 2019 , they might not have been so willing to open the door for Foles (to presumably head straight to Jacksonville).Wentz missed the final three games of last season because of a stress fracture in his back, after he was held out of the first two games while recovering from the previous year’s knee injury.While they are ready to commit their future to the former first-rounder, they’re apparently not in a rush to extend his contract this offseason. They could do so now that he’s three years into the league Black Corey Clement Jerseys , but there are reasons for both sides to wait. Wentz’s value will only grow if he can stay healthy and put up the kind of numbers he was producing before the knee injury. For the Eagles, keeping him on that cheap rookie contract allows them to pack in more parts now, which could increase his chances of playing well with a better cast around him. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles waived their two top rushers from last season and a starting offensive lineman on their Super Bowl championship team.Running backs Josh Adams and Wendell Smallwood were let go along with offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski on Saturday as the team reached the 53-man roster limit.Adams signed as a rookie free agent out of Notre Dame last year and ran for 511 yards and three touchdowns Corey Clement Jerseys 2019 , averaging 4.3 yards per carry. Smallwood, a fifth-round pick in 2016, had 364 yards rushing three TDs along with 230 yards receiving and two TD receptions. Both players were expendable because the Eagles acquired Jordan Howard from Chicago and drafted Miles Sanders in the second round.Wisniewski started 27 games at left guard Black Jake Elliott Jerseys , including playoffs, in three seasons in Philadelphia.Quarterback Clayton Thorson, a fifth-round pick Jake Elliott Jerseys 2019 , also was released and Cody Kessler was cut Friday. Kessler started 12 games in three seasons with Cleveland and Jacksonville before coming to Philly earlier this year. The Eagles signed veteran Josh McCown out of retirement to back up Carson Wentz and Nate Sudfeld is expected to return from a wrist injury in September.Starting cornerback Jalen Mills was placed on the physically unable to perform list. He’s still working his way back from a season-ending foot injury last season.
