Eagles beat writer Reuben Frank said one of the popular sideline topics among the beat writers during practice is Corey Clement. There’s a school of thought that with Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles guaranteed roster spots, 2018 Eagles rushing leader Josh Adams and Wendell Smallwood back from last year and Boston Scott also in the mix, Clement could be a roster casualty.
I say no freaking way.
The Eagles do have a crowded backfield, but Sproles is expected to see mostly punt return duties, so the Birds could end up keeping five backs. Frank pointed out that Clement's efforts down the stretch in 2017 and in the Super Bowl can't be forgotten. Frank also called him "the best receiving back on the roster and one of the better blocking backs."
