Rodgers signed a contract with the Redskins on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Rodgers was added to the roster by the Eagles in Week 16 of last season, logging eight total offensive snaps over the final two games. In the absence of Jordan Reed, there seems to be no clear No. 1 option at tight end for Washington heading into 2020. Rodgers will battle Jeremy Sprinkle and Logan Thomas for snaps next campaign, although the team could also address the position in the draft.
Rodgers played eight offensive snaps over two games in 2019, including the Eagles' postseason loss to the Seahawks. Rodgers started the season on injured reserve due to a foot injury, but he was waived with an injury settlement in September and became a free agent. The 28-year-old tight end rejoined the team in December while Zach Ertz dealt with a rib injury, but Rodgers was used mainly in a run-blocking role in his limited snaps. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March, and if he sticks around with the Eagles, a similar reserve role awaits him.
Rodgers signed with Philadelphia on Tuesday. With Zach Ertz fracturing a rib in Week 16, the team was in need of depth behind Dallas Goedert and Joshua Perkins at tight end. Rodgers was waived by the team with an injury settlement earlier this season and has yet to see NFL action in 2019.
The Eagles waived Rodgers (foot) from IR with an injury settlement Wednesday. Rodgers wasn't able to stay healthy through the preseason, and he wasn't expected to have a major role in the offense anyway with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert around. If he clears waivers, he'll be free to sign with any team once healthy.
The Eagles placed Rodgers (foot) on injured reserve Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Rodgers suffered the injury during joint practices with the Ravens on Aug. 19. Regardless of his health, it seemed unlikely that the former Packer was going to see much playing time anyway, what with Dallas Goedert (calf) and fantasy stud Zach Ertz listed ahead of him on the depth chart. Rodgers won't count against the Eagles' roster limit, allowing them a little flexibility as the deadline for roster cuts draws closer.
