  • OL Aaron Evans

  • QB Christian Hackenberg
  • WR Darius Prince

In addition, Tim Jernigan (NFI) and Chris Maragos (PUP) will miss at least the first six games if the season.

4:07 – A surprise: Josh Adams got cut. Looks like Wendell Smallwood is the fourth running back.

3:54 – Non-cuts news but nonetheless important. Nick Foles is starting Thursday.

3:44 – Mailata made it.

3:17 – Sounds like Jordan Mailata made the team.

1:05 – A surprise cut: De’Vante Bausby. He was taking some first team snaps as the nickel cornerback early in training camp. Probably shows how much the team values Avonte Maddox.

12:35 – There’s been two reported cuts. The biggest coming from running back Donnel Pumphrey, a fourth-round pick last year.

The Birds also reportedly cut offensive lineman Toby Weathersby. The roster currently stands at 79.
