Eagles Waive Andre Chachere

In a bit of a surprising move, the Eagles announced on Monday that they waived defensive back Andre Chachere.

Chachere may have appeared in only appeared in parts of seven games last season and played a grand total of 10 defensive snaps, but he provided depth for a safety position that is lacking much depth.

The Eagles don’t seem to believe that he will fit into their new defensive scheme well given the move.

Originally joining the team in 2021 via a waiver claim, he was re-signed with the team for the 2022 season but wound up mainly as a special teamer and split time between the roster and the practice squad.

The Eagles safety depth at this point is Reed Blankenship and the newly-signed Terrell Edmonds. Behind those starters, the only official safeties are Justin Evans and K’Von Wallace and neither is garaunteed a spot on the 53-man roster.

It is likely that the Eagles will look to cross-train some younger guys like Kelee Ringo, Eli Ricks or Tristin McCollum to man both safety and corner. There is also the possibility the Eagles could go after a veteran option on the trade market.
