Eagles part ways with CB De’Vante Bausby
1 September 2018 Eagles News
On Saturday the Eagles parted ways with off season standout CB De’Vante Bausby.
The #Eagles are releasing CB De’Vante Bausby, per source.
Bausby was getting 1st-team reps at nickel in spring and early summer, but was passed by Sidney Jones, Avonte Maddox. If Bausby clears waivers, he’ll likely land back on the practice squad.

The journeyman corner had started off hot this off season, but failed to flash coming down the stretch. Bausby received praise for his work in the slot, even taking first-team reps in the slot at one point. This move tells us more about Sidney Jones and Avonte Maddox’s play as of late more than it tells you about Bausby’s play.
If there is anyway Bausby passes waivers, it would be ideal for the Eagles to find a spot on their practice squad. However, cornerback-needy-teams across the league will probably take a flier on his services.
