Deon Cain Leads Eagles In Receiving During Preseason Finale

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Deon Cain caught 6-of-9 targets and gained 62 yards during the team's 27-13 preseason loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Philadelphia played almost exclusively backups during the preseason finale in an attempt to figure out who would make the final roster after cutdowns, with the 27-year-old looking like the most complete receiver Thursday night. Tyrie Cleveland was the standout through the first few weeks of the preseason. However, he was waived due to injury, leaving the likes of Cain, Joseph Ngata, Devon Allen, and the newly signed Freddie Swain fighting for one of the final wide receiver spots on the roster. After last night's performances, Cain and Swain will likely be the final two in contention. Whoever is cut will likely revert to the practice squad.
