In what seems like very odd timing, the Eagles decided to release 3 players ahead of the final preseason game against the Jets. The Eagles released wide receivers Keevan Lucas and David Watford, along with cornerback Tay Glover-Wright.
While I didn’t expect any of these guys to make the team, Watford is an interesting early cut being that he was on the practice squad last season. I guess they didn’t see enough development this offseason to warrant allocating a practice squad spot to him. With the depth at receiver this year, along with the recent draft selections, it was a long-shot for him to ever come off of the practice squad. I doubt that we need anymore developmental receivers with Hollins, Gibson, Agholor and possibly Treggs on the roster.
Keevan Lucas and Tay Glover-Wright were essentially “camp bodies” and had no shot of making the team.
As a fellow Hampton Pirate, I wish Watford nothing but the best.
