One day after their season same to an end, the Eagles are already moving forward with their 2019 plans.
The team announced that they have signed 10 players to reserve/future contracts.
All 10 players were on the team's practice squad to end the 2018 season, and now each of them will have a chance to grind during the offseason and try to earn a roster spot in 2019 with the Birds. The most notable players who might get a fair shot at making next year's roster are Joe Ostman, Donnel Pumphrey and Chandon Sullivan.
With the futures of Brandon Graham and Chris Long unknown, Ostman will have a chance to steal one of their spots and possibly become a rotational DE. Pumphrey was a 4th round selection for the Eagles in 2017 and was supposed to be Darren Sproles' eventual replacement. Since Sproles is pondering his retirement, Pumphrey might get one last chance to prove if he can take over Sproles' role in the Eagles offense. Due to the Eagles secondary becoming depleted, Sullivan was on the active roster for a few weeks this season, but was exposed by veteran QBs and WRs. Now that he knows what true NFL action is like, maybe he will learn from his mistakes and become a better overall player in 2019.
There will likely be a good amount of turnover on the Eagles roster this offseason, and these 10 players will now be looking to grab one of the spots that might open up for them.
