The Eagles will not bring one of their rookie free agents to Training Camp, as the team waived wide receiver Khalil Tate on Monday.
Tate was signed following the 2020 NFL Draft out of the University of Arizona where he had a decorated career as a quarterback.
The Eagles had success with Greg Ward, who was a Heisman Trophy candidate at Houston as a quarterback before transitioning to wide receiver in the NFL. After two-plus seasons on the practice squad, Ward was promoted to the active roster in Week 12 in 2019 and led all Eagles wide receivers with 28 receptions and 254 yards in the final six regular-season games. Ward's game-winning catch with 26 seconds remaining at Washington helped the Eagles remain in contention to eventually win the NFC East title.
Without Tate, the Eagles have 12 rookie free agents on the roster, including one receiver in Manasseh Bailey.
