The full list of roster cuts for the Eagles includes:

  1. CB Rasul Douglas
  2. CB Sidney Jones
  3. DE Shareef Miller
  4. G Sua Opeta
  5. DE Joe Ostman
  6. DT Anthony Rush
  7. TE Noah Togiai
  8. T Prince Tega Wanogho
  9. DT Raequan Williams

The Eagles also placed G Brandon Brooks on the physically unable to perform list.

Jones, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2017. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $6.14 million contract that included $3.814 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $1.3 million for the 2020 season. 

Jones recently came up as a possible trade candidate for Philadelphia, so they clearly weren’t able to find an interested team. 

In 2019, Jones appeared in 12 games for the Eagles and recorded 22 tackles, two interceptions and passes defended.

Douglas, 24, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2017. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3.17 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $754,750 for the 2020 season.

Douglas had been on the trade block earlier this offseason and wasn’t projected to start, so this isn’t entirely a surprise. The Eagles and Douglas also agreed to a pay cut earlier this offseason. 

In 2019, Douglas appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and recorded 35 tackles, no interceptions and 10 passes defended. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 98 cornerback receiver out of 113 qualifying players.
