When the Eagles released James Casey, who served as a third tight end in addition to special-teams duties in 2014, Trey Burton knew there was a chance for him to seize that role - if he could, and if it still existed. Neither of those things was guaranteed.
During the preseason thus far, 19 players have caught passes for the Eagles. In keeping with the need to have all things in perspective at this time of year, it's worth noting that the leading receiver, with nine catches, is rookie Nelson Agholor, who might be the top receiver during the regular season, too, and the second-leading receiver, with eight catches, is undrafted local Rasheed Bailey, who almost certainly will not make the 53-man roster.
