Veteran receiver Marquess Wilson was released, while young cornerback Randall Goforth was waived.

With the moves, the Eagles now have 87 players on their roster. That leaves them with three open spots with the first practice of training camp scheduled for noon on Thursday.

Goforth was an undrafted corner out of UCLA who joined the Eagles last offseason. Unfortunately, for the young DB, he tore his ACL in training camp and missed his entire rookie season. Goforth was always around the facility, though, and walks away from the Eagles with a Super Bowl ring.

Wilson, 25, actually has some NFL experience. He was a seventh-round pick of the Bears back in 2013 and has 56 catches for 777 yards and three touchdowns during his NFL career, but the Eagles apparently didn't think he had a future in Philly. He was signed this offseason and didn't even make it to training camp. After spending the first four years of his career in Chicago, Wilson didn't make the Jets' roster after signing with them and was out of the league in 2017.

After the moves, the Eagles have 11 wide receivers and eight cornerbacks on the roster.
