#Eagles to waive UDFA WR Paul Turner, per @DZangaroCSN.

I like Turner, but I did mention his limitations athletically and said he's not safe. Maybe he goes to our practice squad.

The #Eagles are waiving receiver and training camp standout Paul Turner, per source. If he clears, they'd like him on practice squad.

Does look like they want to keep him on the practice squad.

C.J. Smith waived. That makes two cuts. One more to go.

Not sure how we cut Paul Turner, he might be Jason avant reincarnated but he's the only receiver that showed he could catch with any consitency.

I'm genuinely astounded that Marcus smith made the team. But then again Howie did draft this failure, so he's got to hold on to every last shred of hope for him. I really hope he at least gets on the field this year. I remember we were all pretty close to shutting the door on Brandon Graham a year too soon, I can only hope that's the same case here. However, something tells me that isn't the case.

Also, has anyone actually officially come out and named Wentz the starter yet?

Also, who is Bryce Treggs? And how did he make the team over Paul Turner?

How did he make it over Turner?

1.) We needed to add him to the 53 to get him. He was going to sign to the 49ers practice squad otherwise.

2.) Our team is lacking someone who can truly stretch the field vertically. Agholor and Huff are fast with the ball in their hands after the catch, but they lack that gear to pull away when running routes.

3.) We have plenty of receivers who can play in the slot like Turner can. We need guys that have deep speed and can beat corners on the perimeter.

I literally never noticed him and didn't see the 4th preseason game. That's why I asked. I just know turned out produced him in every game, and from what I saw, looked like he deserved to make the team.

Would like to have seen Hart and Turner make it. Kept some suspect OL but I guess we'd probably need them over Turner who's most effective in the slot where we have multiple guys that excel at it and Hart, who's more suited in the 3-4.

Be nice to get Turner on the PS.

And I really need Smith to show anything this year. Excited to see Means in certain situations. Could be a find. I watched him specifically last preseason game and he really gets after it. Has a real good Freeney spin move in his repertoire.


Welp, this is it. Just need them to name Wentz the starter officially and then I can change my underwear. Go Birds!

You didn't notice Treggs because he was on the 9ers in training camp/preseason. We picked him off waivers.

Smith has actually been pretty damn good against the run.

Yeah I don't know why we thought Treggs was better. We'll see I guess.
