Eagles Release Three Players; Roster With 10 Spots for UDFAs

The Eagles made three more roster moves to create space for incoming undrafted free agents. 

On Thursday afternoon, the team waived running back Terrell Watson and fullback Andrew Bonnet and also cut guard Josh LeRibeus. Watson and Bonnet are subject to the NFL's waiver system, while LeRibeus, a veteran, is now a free agent.

The Eagles' roster sits at 80 before adding undrafted free agents. The maximum number allowed at this time of year is 90. 

After the conclusion of the draft, Eagles VP of football operations Howie Roseman said the team would have to weigh the value of players on the roster vs. undrafted players they could sign. 

"I think, for us, what we're going to do is we're going to weigh the value of some of the undrafted free agents versus some of the guys on the roster," Roseman said. "If there's an opportunity to improve our football team, we've got to take that opportunity to do that."

Watson, a 6-1, 240-pound running back from Azusa Pacific, played in one game with the Eagles last season. He had nine carries for 28 yards and a touchdown. 

Bonnet, Carson Wentz's teammate at North Dakota State, spent some time with the Eagles' practice squad last year, but never made it to the 53-man roster. He was the only fullback listed on the roster. 

LeRibeus signed with the team on a futures contract in January. He played in 28 games (with 12 starts) with Washington from 2012-15.
