Depth Acquisition

Eagles Add New Tight End


The Philadelphia Eagles have added to their tight end room after a rotational loss earlier in the offseason.

Veteran TE C.J. Uzomah has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the team, per NFL Network.

GETTY IMAGES: New Eagles TE C.J. Uzomah joins the team after two seasons with the Jets.

Uzomah joins the Birds after two seasons with the Jets, which was preceded by seven seasons playing for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2015-21.

During his NFL career, the 31-year-old has moved up and down depth charts. His latest season saw him tally just eight receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown.

But at his best, Uzomah can be a reliable target. As the Bengals’ top tight end in their 2021 season, he racked up 49 catches for 493 yards and five touchdowns, all career highs in a campaign that ended with a Super Bowl appearance.

Depth at TE is necessary for an Eagles team that recently lost Jack Stoll to the divisional rival New York Giants. Stoll made 21 starts combined in the past two seasons, often filling in for an injured Dallas Goedert.

Joining Goedert and Uzomah in the room is third-year Grant Calcaterra as well as the recently re-signed Albert Okwuegbunam, with an option to select a rookie in the 2024 NFL draft still remaining.
