Philadelphia Eagles Roster Updated July 5, 2022
Below is a look at the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster for the 2022 offseason.
Jalen Hurts, Gardner Minshew, Reid Sinnett, Carson Strong
After playing his first full year as a starting quarterback, Jalen Hurts led the Eagles to a 9-8 season, advancing to the playoffs. Though his rush game was strong, his ability to get the ball in his teammates’ hands has been an issue. The Eagles, however, put faith in Hurts going into the 2022 season as their QB1.
Minshew started two games last season, completing 41 receptions for 439 passing yards and four touchdowns. There were rumors he would be traded early in the offseason, but he remains an Eagle.
Sinnett has not played a game yet and Strong was signed as an undrafted free agent in April 2022.
Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Kenneth Gainwell, Jason Huntley, Kennedy Brooks
The 2021 run game got off to a rough start, but after Week 6 the Eagles found their footing, leading the NFL in rushing yards for the remainder of the season. Sanders has been with the Eagles since 2019. He missed four games last season due to injury, finishing the season with 754 rushing yards and 158 receiving yards. Oddly, he had zero touchdowns.
Scott and Gainwell found moderate success, both finishing with a combined yardage under Sanders (664). Huntley has not played in a game since 2020 and Brooks was signed following the 2022 NFL Draft.
AJ Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, Greg Ward Zach Pascal, Jalen Reagor, John Hightower, Deon Cain, Devon Allen, Britain Covey, Josh Hammond, Keric Wheatfall
The Eagles acquired AJ Brown from the Tennessee Titans during the 2022 NFL Draft. During his three professional seasons in the NFL, he’s completed 185 receptions for 2,995 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns. Second-year wide receiver DeVonta Smith showed great progress last season, surpassing the Eagles’ rookie record set by DeSean Jackson. He will be returning as WR2 in 2022.
Last season, head coach Nick Sirianni chose five wide receivers for the active roster. If the Eagles repeat this pattern in 2022, it’s likely Quez Watkins and Greg Ward will also be a lock. Zach Pascal, acquired from the Indianapolis Colts, Reagor and Hightower will be vying for the final spot.
As we approach the 2022-2023 season, the active roster likely will not include Cain, Allen, Covey, Hammond, or Wheatfall.
Dallas Goedert, Jack Stoll, Tyree Jackson, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Grant Calcaterra, Richard Rodgers, Noah Togiai
After taking over as TE1 following Ertz’s trade to the Cardinals, Goedert was signed to a whopping $57 million four-year contract extension during the 2021 season. Though Stoll sits begin Goedert on the depth chart, Tyree Jackson will be one to keep an eye on if he’s healthy. Jackson is a quarterback turned tight end, and had a promising training camp. He suffered a fractured bone in his back, nearly missing the whole season. Jackson had his first career touchdown in Week 18, but then tore his ACL.
Arcega-Whiteside is a familiar name underneath an unfamiliar position. He decided to make the switch to tight end after consecutive unsuccessful seasons as a wide receiver. Calcaterra was a sixth-round selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Both Rodgers and Togiai have had multiple stints with the Eagles (Rodgers, three and Togiai, two). Rodgers last played in 2020 and Togiai has not played in a game for Philadelphia yet.
Jordan Mailata, Andre Dillard, Jarrid Williams
The Jordan Mailata versus Andre Dillard showdown came and went, and Eagles fans are well aware who won that competition. Before the 2021 season kicked off, Philadelphia signed Mailata to a four-year, $64 million contract extension and the money was well spent. In ten games, he played 100% of the offensive snaps, allowing only two sacks on 336 downs.
There were rumors regarding Dillard being traded, but he remains an Eagles. Williams went unselected in the 2022 NFL Draft, but was later signed by Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent.
Landon Dickerson, Sua Opeta, Josh Sills, Willian Dunkle
Dickerson was a second-round 2021 NFL Draft pick. Deemed as the nation’s best center in college, the original plan was to take over for Jason Kelce. However, Dickerson is a power-house who adds great strength to an already top offensive line.
Opeta hasn’t gotten much playing time, but fits the mold. He’s played on both the left and right and if he doesn’t find a spot here, he may be a possible replacement for Brandon Brooks who retired after last season.
Both Sills and Dunkle went unselected in the 2022 NFL Draft; they were signed by the Eagles days later.
Jason Kelce, Cam Jurgens, Brett Toth
Jason Kelce will thankfully return for his twelfth consecutive season with the Eagles, becoming the highest-paid center in the league. He will continue his 122 consecutive regular-season start streak come 2022. Aside from being a legend, he also handpicked Cam Jurgens. Jurgens was the No. 51 overall selection in this year’s draft after becoming one of the top centers in the Big Ten.
Toth is on his second stint with the Eagles. He was promoted to the active roster late in the 2021 season, but suffered a knee injury in Week 17 and was placed on injured reserve.
Isaac Seumalo, Jack Anderson, Kayode Awosika
Brandon Brooks was the starting right guard for the Eagles, however, after announcing his retirement a new man will be up to bat. Seumalo only played in three games in 2021, but logged 168 offensive snaps and zero sacks, with a 74.8 overall grade. He has another year remaining on his contract and will hopefully be healthy after suffering a Lisfranc injury.
Anderson was signed in 2021, playing late in the season. Awosika, also signed in 2021, originally went undrafted in the 2021 NFL Draft. He was given the second-most money among Philadelphia’s undrafted free agents, behind Jack Stoll. Awosika made his NFL debut in Week 18.
Lane Johnson, Jack Driscoll, Le’Raven Clark
Not a lot to talk about here- Lane Johnson will always give you a solid outing at right tackle, and he’ll be in Philly for the foreseeable future. He dealt with some mental health issues last season, missing the beginning of the season, but returned and even scored his first career touchdown.
Driscoll has been with Philadelphia since 2020, but fans haven’t seen much of him due to injury. Clark signed with the Eagles last season.
After a terrible 2020 season, Elliott came back with vengeance in 2021. He completed 30 of 33 field goals for a 90.9% success rate, setting an Eagles’ franchise record. He was named to his first Pro Bowl, becoming the first kicker to make it since Cody Parkey in 2014.
Siposs started his career with the Detroit Lions, joining the Eagles in 2021.
Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett, Josh Sweat, Matt Leo
Brandon Graham is coming off his first Pro-Bowl season. Somehow, the long-time Eagle gets better every year. But how much longer can the 33-year-old keep it up?
Barnett had a rough 2021 season, completing the most penalties among Eagles players. He was signed to a two-year contract in the offseason, which fans didn’t see coming. Alternatively, Josh Sweat had a productive 2021. He finished with a career-high 45 tackles and 7.5 sacks.
Fans haven’t seen much out of Leo, and it will likely remain that way going into next season.
Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, Marlon Tuipulotu, Jordan Davis, Marvin Wilson, Noah Elliss, Milton Williams, Renell Wren
Long-time veteran Fletcher Cox’s 2021 season didn’t start out the way one might expect. Though he became more productive as the season progressed, his sack total was the second-lowest of his career. Cox was released by the team and later signed again the same day, this time on a restructured contract.
Hargrave was a standout last season and will hopefully make the same impact going into 2022. He had a career high 63 tackles and 7.5 sacks. He also made his first Pro Bowl as a replacement for Kenny Clark.
Tuipulotu and Williams were selected in the 2021 NFL Draft and got some playing time in last season.
Wilson joined the team in 2021, making his debut in Week 18. Wren was a former Cincinnati Bengal and was signed to the Eagles in February. Davis and Elliss went undrafted in this year’s draft.
Haason Reddick, T.J. Edwards, Kyron Johnson, Nakobe Dean, Shaun Bradley, Patrick Johnson, Christian Elliss, Ali Fayad
Lots of unfamiliar names on this list, but Reddick is one fans are excited for. He was selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, playing for the Arizona Cardinals before signing with the Carolina Panthers. Reddick then signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Eagles early this offseason.
Edwards is a player who Sirianni is fond of. He was a crucial part of the defense last season, and was named to the starting lineup in Week 8. He record 44 tackles, three tackles for a loss, one interception, and a fumble recovery. Edwards signed a one-year contract extension worth up to $3.2 million.
Another win for the Eagles is Nakobe Dean. Left on the board during the 2022 NFL Draft due to injury, Philadelphia selected him at No. 83 overall.
Bradley, Johnson, and Elliss haven’t seen much playing time since being with Philadelphia. Ali Fayad was selected in 2022 as an undrafted free agent.
As of May 23, Joe Ostman was released to make room for cornerback Jimmy Moreland.
Darius Slay, James Bradberry, Avonte Maddox, Jimmy Moreland, Josiah Scott, Zech McPhearson, Josh Jobs, Mario Goodrich, Josh Blackwell, Andre Schachere, Tay Gowan, Mac McCain III, Craig James
The Eagles needed a cornerback to help Darius Slay, and they got one. In May 2022, the team signed former New York Giants’ James Bradberry to a one-year, $10 million contract. The duo will now be a force to be reconked with. Slay had an immense season in 2021, setting a league record with his 116 yard fumble return. He was also named to his fourth-career Pro Bowl.
Maddox finished last season with a 73 combined tackles, five tackles for a loss and two forced fumbles.
It will be interesting to see what happens with McPhearson and Gowan. McPhearson was chose in the 2021 NFL Draft and Gowan was part of the trade that included Zach Ertz’s departure from the Eagles. It’s unlikely fans will see Scott, Jobs, Goodrich, Blackwell, Sachachere, McCain, or James on the field.
Jimmy Moreland was added to the roster as of May 23. He is a former Houston Texan, and joins a crowded group.
K’Von Wallace, Anthony Harris, Marcus Epps, Jared Mayden, Reed Blankenship
The Eagles lost Rodney McLeod this year when he signed with the Indianapolis Colts. In his absence, Wallace, Harris, and Epps should be the leading guys going into the season.
Mayden hasn’t played for the Eagles yet, and Blankenship joined Philadelphia this season as an undrafted free agent.
