The Eagles have signed tight end C.J. Uzomah to a one-year contract.

"I really wanted to come to a place, where in my heart, I have a feeling that we have a great chance to win a Super Bowl this year," said Uzomah after signing his contract at the NovaCare Complex. "It's the culture, the fans, and everything about this team and organization that I have observed as a bystander over the years."

Uzomah (6-foot-5, 271 pounds) is entering his 10th season in the league after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. He spent the last two years with the New York Jets.

In 106 career games (82 starts), the 31-year-old caught 192 passes for 1,881 yards and 16 touchdowns. His best season came in 2021 when the Bengals appeared in Super Bowl LVI. Uzomah had 49 catches for 493 yards and five touchdowns, all career highs.

Over the last two seasons, Uzomah totaled 29 receptions, 290 yards, and three touchdowns. He missed the final five games of his Jets career after suffering a season-ending knee injury on December 3, 2023.

"I'm on track, a little bit ahead of schedule," Uzomah said. "I can't wait to get back on the field and get after it with the guys."

Uzomah will bring veteran experience to a tight end room that, outside of Dallas Goedert, has 10 career starts.
