Still didn't fill the 53rd roster spot after Rowe left.

That's a little odd.

Goode coming back? 3rd QB?

They only have four LB's that played a down for us in preseason. The 5th is new guy from NE who doesn't know anything.

This is another perspective on the Eagles only keeping 4 LBs.

QUOTE
People are looking at the linebacker situation wrong.

When we think about linebacker usage and base defense, we think in terms of “4-3” and “3-4.” We shouldn’t. The NFL has been on a steady trajectory towards three WRs being the base offense, and in 2015 that finally happened: 51 percent of snaps came with teams playing with 3 WRs, and an additional 14 percent of snaps were with 4+ WRs, meaning that front sevens saw the field only a third of the time. Nickel is now base defense.

Jim Schwartz has four veteran linebackers of varying skillsets that he will mix and match, and most of the time half of them are going to be on the bench together. Get used to it.

Furthermore look at the skills of the Giants, Skins and Cowboys with Romo--they can all move the ball through the air. An anylast interviewed on one of the Sports Talk radio stations last evening really is concerned about the Eagles CBs in a division with so much aerial firepower.

Maybe that is why the Eagles just signed a LB/SS hybrid player. They know they will be in nickel a lot or in situations where they have to defend dangerous TEs. They won't need three LB configurations so much.
