Rodgers has $200,000 guaranteed in his one-year, $880,000 contract with the Eagles, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The size of the contract suggests Rodgers will need to earn his roster spot, though the guaranteed money hints the Eagles expect him to do so. The team may view him as a low-cost replacement for Trey Burton, who caught 23 of 30 targets for 248 yards and five scores in 15 games last season, with nearly half of his yardage and three of the five touchdowns occurring in the two contests Zach Ertz missed due to injury. A 2014 third-round pick, Rodgers caught 58 of 85 targets for 510 yards and eight touchdowns in 2015, but he's otherwise failed to reach 300 yards in a season, typically operating in a reserve role. He has underwhelming career marks of 9.7 yards per catch and 6.4 yards per target, despite getting most of his opportunities from the arm of Aaron Rodgers.
