The Eagles made their first transactions of the offseason on Tuesday when they signed the following 11 players to Reserve/Futures contracts. These are players who were not on the active roster at the end of the season:

• G/T Kayode Awosika - The rookie free agent out of Buffalo made his NFL debut in the regular-season finale against the Cowboys and played 43 snaps. Awosika was a three-year starter and two-time captain at Buffalo, playing 37 games (32 starts).

• WR Deon Cain - A former sixth-round pick of the Colts in 2019, Cain was signed to the Eagles' practice squad on October 18 and finished the season with the team. Prior to joining the Eagles, Cain played in 15 games (6 starts) with the Colts and Steelers.

• LB Christian Elliss - A rookie free agent of the Vikings out of Idaho, Elliss made his NFL debut in the regular-season finale against the Cowboys and posted two tackles in seven snaps.

• CB Craig James - The cornerback spent his third year with the Eagles in 2021. His most extensive playing time came in 2019 when he played 14 games with one start. James was a special teams captain in 2020.

• DE Matt Leo - The Australian native originally joined the Eagles in 2020 through the NFL International Player Pathway Program. The 6-foot-7, 280-pound Leo played college football at Iowa State (29 games). 2021 marked his second year on the team's practice squad.

• DE Cameron Malveaux - Malveaux was called up by the Eagles for each of the final four games this past season, including playoffs. He played 66 snaps on defense in the regular season and another 15 in the playoffs, notching four total tackles.

• S Jared Mayden - Like Malveaux, Mayden was called up for four regular-season games this year. The former rookie free agent out of Alabama accumulated five tackles and another one on special teams.

He returned to Philadelphia on October 11 and made his Eagles debut in the regular-season finale against Dallas.
