CLEVELAND – The Eagles are leaving Ohio after two joint practices and a preseason game on Sunday.

The Eagles won 21-20, but the week was about improving and evaluating the roster.

The Eagles will head to Miami this week for joint practices with the Dolphins on Wednesday and Thursday before their third and final preseason game on Saturday night.

But before that, let’s get to the latest stock watch:


C Cam Jurgens: There’s only one Jason Kelce, but the Eagles may have found the next best thing. Jurgens has been fun to watch all summer and now he’s doing it in games. The rookie from Nebraska is really one to watch in the open field. He was there for only two series, but they were good.

WR Deon Cain: It may not have a place on Cain’s list, but it deserves a spot. The former sixth-round pick out of Indy had a 23-yard catch and a 24-yard catch back-to-back from Gardner Minshew. Minshew and Cain have had a rapport all summer.

WR Devon Allen: We finally got to see that world-class speed from the Olympic hurdler. He broke free from former Eagle Lavert in the third quarter and caught a 55-yard bomb. He celebrated by stumbling into the end zone. In addition to the game, he started making some plays in practice this week.

RB Boston Scott/Kenny Gainswell: Scott accounted for 44 of 76 yards on the Eagles’ opener. The veteran backup has been strong since returning from a concussion. And then after Scott came out of the game, Gainwell performed well too. Scott had 10 carries for 33 yards and a touchdown, while Gainwell was 11 for 46 and a touchdown of his own.

CB Josh Jobe: The rookie UDFA from Alabama may have already played his way onto the roster. He’s moved up to several cornerbacks this summer and worked as the second-team corner opposite Zech McPhearson. Jobe on Sunday had a nice open field tackle early in the first half and then had a PBU near the end of the half.

OL Jack Anderson: If the Eagles carry 10 forwards, Anderson would be my pick. He can play guard and can even take center shots in a pinch. He had a good game with the second team OL against the Browns. In fact, the entire second team looked pretty good: Andre Dillard, Anderson, Jurgens, Sua Opeta and Jack Driscoll.

DB Ugo Amadi: The Eagles received Amadi in return in the JJAW trade. The Seahawks were going to screw it up anyway, but Amadi made some plays Sunday despite coming so late to the Eagles.

Stocks down

LB Davion Taylor: The third-year quarterback has looked good this summer, but has struggled against the Browns. He had some missed tackles and struggled to get off blocks.

DB Andre Chachere: Working as a nickel cornerback (he’s naturally a safety) Chachere had a chance to get a sack and couldn’t bring down the QB. He had a nice goal line tackle, but gave up a few plays. Josiah Scott has basically done the opposite of Chachere this summer; a natural nickel that functions as security. But Scott has performed better.

DE Matt Leo: Internationally banned Leo has been with the Eagles since 2020 and he still doesn’t seem to belong. I give the 30-year-old former plumber a lot of credit for chasing that dream, and there’s no stopping him from keeping it because he doesn’t count on the roster, but I just haven’t seen anything that makes him worth keeping around.

CB Kary Vincent Jr.: In a packed room, some had high hopes for Vincent, the former LSU track star. Even though Vincent has been with the Eagles since last season, he has been passed over by several guys on the depth chart and didn’t have a very good game on Sunday. I think Jobe, Tay Gowan and Mac McCain III are all ahead of him at this point.

QB Carson Strong: I was really hoping to see Strong get some time in this game and that didn’t really happen. He went in there late in the game, gave up five runs and then threw an incompletion. Strong barely gets any reps in practice, he’s barely played in the preseason, and it’s disappointing. This was the biggest name UDFA the Eagles signed and he can’t even get on the field.
