Eagles Early Offseason Position Preview: Tight End

Dallas Goedert

There is a lot to work with in the tight end room moving forward, as the many talents of Dallas Goedert lead the way entering his seventh Eagles season. Goedert registered a career-best 59 catches in 2023, gaining 592 yards and 3 scores. He is a weapon from anywhere on the field and is a mismatch problem for defensive players as one of the major go-to pieces in the Eagles' passing game. Goedert is also a key in-line blocker who has power and a great anchor in the running game.

Around Goedert is a group of promising young talents. Fourth-year player Jack Stoll (a restricted free agent) continued to develop as a receiving threat in '23, while doing a lot of dirty work blocking in the running game. Grant Calcaterra is an athletic, good run-after-the-catch young tight end who has delivered when called upon in the offense and on special teams. Albert Okwuegbunam, who signed a one-year contract extension on February 23, has the physical abilities and potential to be a contributor on offense. Noah Togiai and E.J. Jenkins are another pair of young, developing tight ends who could receive long looks in the spring and summer to see how they fit into the offense.

Key TE Fact: Since taking over the primary tight end duties in the 2021 season, Goedert ranks third among NFL tight ends with a 12.5-yard-per-catch average, is fifth in yards after the catch (1,125), and sixth with 2,126 receiving yards.

Players under contract for 2024: Dallas Goedert, Grant Calcaterra, Albert Okwuegbunam, Noah Togiai, E.J. Jenkins

Players whose contracts are set to expire in March: Jack Stoll (restricted free agent)
