The Eagles have signed tight end Albert Okwuegbunam to a one-year contract extension through the 2024 season.

Okwuegbunam (6-5, 258 pounds) was acquired via a trade with the Denver Broncos on August 29 for a sixth-round pick in the 2025 NFL Draft. The Eagles also acquired a 2025 seventh-round pick in the deal.

The fourth-year tight end saw action in four games with the Eagles last season, playing 57 snaps on offense. In 30 career games (7 starts), the Springfield, Illinois native has registered 54 catches for 546 yards and four touchdowns.

Executive Vice President and General Manager Howie Roseman had high praise for the 25-year-old when he met with the media following the acquisition of Okwuegbunam.

"Yeah, first thing you talk about Albert, you talk about the physical ability," Roseman said. "He is 6-5. He is almost 260 pounds. He runs a 4.4 (in the 40-yard dash). He's got a huge wingspan. He has really good lower-body flexibility for a big guy.

"For us, any time we have an opportunity to add an offensive player that we think can help us and help our team we look at that, so that's the reason we brought him in."
