Hakeem Butler signs with Eagles as a TE

The Philadelphia Eagles signed Hakeem Butler off the Carolina Panthers' practice squad on Tuesday and are transitioning him from wide receiver to tight end. (

Fantasy Impact:

Butler was the first pick in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals but spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve before being waived earlier this month. At 6-5, 224 pounds, Butler has the kind of athletic profile that could translate to the tight end position if he is able to add some weight and improve his run blocking. With Dallas Goedert landing on injured reserve, Butler should have an opportunity to contribute for the Eagles over the next few weeks if he is able to pick up enough of the playbook to be active on game days.
