Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said that the team would not make any changes to the starting lineup for this week’s game against the Giants, but they are making a change further down the depth chart.

The Eagles announced that they have waived wide receiver Mack Hollins. Guard Sua Opeta was promoted from the practice squad to fill the open roster spot.

Hollins appeared in all 12 games this season and made three starts as the Eagles have dealt with a variety of injuries over the course of the year. He caught 10 passes for 125 yards while playing 46 percent of the offensive snaps. Hollins missed 2018 with an injury and saw extensive time on special teams as a rookie in 2017.

Opeta signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent this offseason.

  1. His lack of production is a result of Nick Foles no longer being an Eagle. Mack Hollins could have been born without thumbs or eyes and would have 54 TD catches at this point if Foles was still the QB. I heard he performed his own collarbone surgery.

  2. He went 8 games in a row, 204 snaps, with zero receptions. He also had 5 penalties, most on plays that would have gained over 10 yards. He had 7 snaps last week, and got a block in the back penalty that killed a drive. Other than that, he seems like a nice guy.

  3. What a waste of roster space! He actually wasn’t even good on special teams this year. Had way more penalties than special teams tackles and WR catches combined!

  4. Really?!! about time. The guy should be arrested for stealing money from the Eagles the last there years. A mannequin would have had as many catches.

    I can’t wait to hear what Pederson and the OC say about him now.

  5. I heard on his way out of the building he committed a hold, a block in the back and dropped Wentz’s farewell pass. (ND40 anyone?

    Peanut gallery…Wentz has a Super Bowl ring, do you?

  6. Just remember nick foles has won 99% of his games with the same roster that loses every week with wentz Carson wentz single handily destroyed the eagles

  7. Even though this guy was regressing as a wide receiver he was drafted to play special teams which he did very well.

  8. LOL @ the Foles vs Wentz stupidly..Foles benched for a below average QB..misses more games this yr then the so called Wentz “Injury prone”. Withour Wentz getting Foles home field, the birds dont win the trophy. #StopTHEhate

  9. It’s about damn time. As much as I like Mack Hollins, this whole thing was stretched out one year longer than it needed to be. The Eagles should have added a second speed receiver in addition to Jackson. They knew he was going to get hurt. I still can’t believe they did not have a back-up plan.

  10. Well it’s about time!

    The shame is before that abdominal injury he looked promising.

    This is at least a good first step, but Nelson Agholor needs to go as well 9.4 Mil for the worst ranked WR on PFF is a joke! The Eagles have made some horrible first round mistakes over the years but at least with Danny Watkins and Marcus Smith they cut bait!

    The training and medical staff all needs to be replaced!

    Mike Groh gone!

    Carson Walch gone!

    Press Taylor gone!

  11. coupla years too late! 4th round pick?! ’17 draft is full of nothings and no ones besides Rasul and Barnett. I hope it was Joes draft, but I can’t even fool myself on that one! HOWIE do it.
