Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Makes four appearances in 2021

Rodgers finished the 2021 campaign with two catches for 11 yards across four appearances. Rodgers spent the majority of the season on the practice squad, but he was elevated in back-to-back weeks following the trade of Zach Ertz at the end of October. However, both of Rodgers' catches came against the Cowboys in Week 18, when he played a season-high 37 snaps. He suited up for the Eagles' wild-card loss to Tampa Bay, but he saw a season-low three snaps. The 30-year-old is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but it's unclear if he will draw much interest from around the league.

Richard Rodgers: Released by Philly

The Eagles cut Rodgers from their practice squad Tuesday. The Eagles released Rodgers before the initial 53-man roster deadline, but they brought him back ahead of Week 3 after Zach Ertz was placed in COVID-19 protocols. Ertz was able to clear protocols in time to play in Monday night's contest, so Rodgers has become expendable once again. The 29-year-old appeared in 14 games for Philly last season, catching 24 of 31 targets for 345 yards and two touchdowns.

Richard Rodgers: Released by Philly

The Eagles cut Rodgers on Tuesday, EJ Smith of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Rodgers appeared in 14 games for the Eagles last season, catching 24 of 31 targets for 345 yards and two touchdowns. The 29-year-old was thought to be in a position for a bigger role this season, as Zach Ertz was on the trading block for most of the offseason, but it appears to be the other way around. Jack Stoll is likely to be the No. 3 tight end behind Dallas Goedert and Ertz.
