One interesting bit of news coming out of Philadelphia is the fact that the Eagles are apparently still trying to figure out who is going to punt for them in 2023.

Their previous punter, Arryn Siposs was among the final cuts as Philadelphia pared its roster down to 53 this week, which initially left them without someone to handle those duties.

Fortunately, Siposs ended up on the practice squad, but any chance of being promoted doesn’t appear to be guaranteed. They’re reportedly auditioning three other players for the role, with Pat O’Donnell (released by the Packers Tuesday), Colby Wadman (released by Washington Tuesday), and Blake Gillikin (waived by New Orleans Tuesday) among guys who the Patriots could see out there in just over a week.

Siposs left most Eagles fans with a bad taste in their mouths after his shank in the Super Bowl against the Chiefs in the fourth quarter helped set up what ended up being a 65-yard punt return by the Chiefs’ Kadarius Toney with just over 10 minutes to go in the game.

Three plays later, after starting things off at the Eagles’ 5-yard line, Kansas City was in the end zone, which at the time extended the Chiefs’ lead to 35-27.

In a game where every single play was critical, that was certainly a big one, especially since the final score ended up being 38-35 with Kansas City eeking that one out.

With the 2023 season closing in, Siposs finds himself still a member of the Eagles, but it’s hard to say how much longer he’ll last.

Whether or not he’s out there next weekend remains to be seen, as it appears Philadelphia is still exploring its options to figure out who they’ll trot out there against the Patriots less than 10 days from now.

(Editor’s Note: Portions of the above appeared in this morning’s daily Patriots news and notes column.)
