WHY EAGLES TACKLE DILLARD MAY NOT BE AROUND AFTER AUG. 31 CUT!

Free Expert Picks!

By Max Harper

The Eagles are in Florham Park, NJ today and tomorrow for joint practices with the Jets before their last exo Friday night at MetLife.

And, as the Birds evaluate the roster as cutdown day approaches on August 31, Andre Dillard is in great jeopardy of not making the cut down to 53 players.

As The Athletic’s Bo Wulf writes:

Dillard returned to practice Sunday as a limited participant after missing over a week with a knee injury.

Even before the injury, Dillard struggled on a near-daily basis while Jordan Mailata flourished at left tackle.

Are the Eagles willing to make Dillard the backup tackle on game day (which would mean Mailata having to move to right tackle in case of a Lane Johnson injury)?

Would they carry Dillard on the roster and make him suffer the ignominy of being inactive on game day?

Or will they accept an offer to move him elsewhere? As the lazy writer truism goes, time will tell.
