I've been boycotting any discussion of the depth chart since Spadaro revealed the whole thing was just a made-up conversation piece we shouldn't put any stock in, despite the fact that it's on the Eagles' official website.
However, Sam -- who must have moles deep within the PE.com web team -- emailed me a little while ago to note that the first official depth chart is now available. And it's somewhat interesting.
I'm a little shocked to see Maclin listed with the second unit. Guess there are no hard feelings about that whole holdout thing, eh? I'm much less shocked to see Reggie Brown there, given the way you don't put a "4 Sale, Cheap" sign on a guy you're hoping to get some value from.
Victor Abiamiri is slotted ahead of Juqua Parker. If that wasn't the way things were trending already, last week's events pretty much guaranteed that outcome. Of course, since VA is hurt, it doesn't mean much right now anyway.
Jason Babin has a long climb ahead of him.
Tank Daniels needs to keep showing up on special teams.
A little surprising that the team only lists one punter and kicker. Thought we might have a punting competition going there for a little while.

In other news, Reid did a presser this afternoon. Aside from all the questions he ducked, there's a lot of interesting material in there. In case you were feeling pretty decent about the tight end situation ... you won't after reading that.
