TE - FA
Week 4 Outlook
TE Richard Rodgers, who will turn 31 this season, is signing with the Los Angeles Chargers practice squad for his ninth NFL season.
Rodgers had four-year stints with each of the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles where he accumulated career numbers of 1,529 yards and 15 touchdowns. He provides another big-bodied tight end to the mix in Los Angeles alongside TEs Gerald Everett, Donald Parham Jr and Tre' McKitty.
TE Richard Rodgers agreed to a contract with the Eagles on Friday.
Rodgers returns to the Eagles after appearing in 14 games for Philadelphia in 2020. He hauled in 24 reception on 31 targets for 345 yards and two touchdowns. With the Eagles most likely to move from tight end Zach Ertz, Rodgers could vault to number two on the Eagles TE depth chart. The 29-year-old is currently 59th among all tight ends in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
Eagles tight end Richard Rodgers caught three of his six targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Monday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
The touchdown that Rodgers caught was actually a Hail Mary pass that bounced off the hands of wide receiver Travis Fulgham, otherwise he would have finished with a couple of receptions for about 20 yards. With Zach Ertz expected to return in Week 13, Rodgers will likely return to a reserve role.
Eagles tight end Richard Rodgers caught both of his targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns.
Rodgers scored his first touchdown of the season on Sunday but could be relegated back to reserve duty if Zach Ertz is able to return in Week 12 against the Seahawks.
Eagles' TE Richard Rodgers caught 4 passes for 60 yards on Sunday in a loss to the Giants.
Goedert returned Week 10 and fantasy managers were hoping he would step back into a TE1 role with Ertz still sidelined, but he split looks with Rodgers. Rodgers secured four passes for 60 yards and could be a viable streaming option if the Eagles' starters can't stay on the field moving forward.
