With training camp right around the corner, there are not a lot of open roster spots on the Philadelphia Eagles. The reigning NFC East division champions basically have all 22 starters locked in on offense and defense, with most of the key reserves already set in stone too.
Its team bringing back every player would be good news for any NFL fanbase. You don’t want to head into camp with five or six open starting jobs open on both offense and defense. And you definitely don’t want to be wondering who will be your starting quarterback, like the Eagles last year when Nick Foles competed against Michael Vick.
It’s a positive for Philadelphia that they have 40 to 45 roster spots virtually locked up. There could be a few surprises for the 2014 Eagles, but there won’t be many.
The following slides will highlight five players who are basically entering a do-or-die training camp in terms of making the Philadelphia roster. They are presented in order of position.
