Eagles waive Tre Sullivan to make room for Nigel Bradham, Deiondre' Hall

The Eagles have activated Nigel Bradham and new safety Deiondre' Hall from the suspended list. Both will be able to play next weekend. 

To make room for them, the Eagles waived safety Tre Sullivan, who made the initial 53-man roster. 

The Eagles needed to make just one move to create space on the roster after they put receiver Mack Hollins on IR Thursday. 

Sullivan was the easy pick to lose his roster spot even before a live punt hit off his foot and gave the Falcons back the ball Thursday night. The Eagles don't need five safeties on the roster and they traded a conditional seventh-round pick to bring in Hall from Chicago. 

Thursday was his first career game, but for a while this summer, Sullivan was running as the Eagles' third safety. But then the Birds brought back Corey Graham and then traded for Hall. That made Sullivan expendable for now.  

If Sullivan clears waivers, the Eagles will likely try to get him back on their practice squad, where he was last year as a rookie. 

In addition to the 53-man roster moves, the Eagles also signed DT Treyvon Hester to their practice squad and released WR Greg Ward, WR Rashard Davis and DT Winston Craig from the practice squad. 

Hester, 25, was a seventh-round pick in the 2017 draft out of Toledo. The Raiders waived him at final cuts a few days ago.
