Aiken was released by the Eagles on Friday.
Aiken saw decent action Week 1 with five receptions for 39 yards, but has only one catch in the five games since. Shelton Gibson and DeAndre Carter will serve as Philadelphia's depth wide receivers, with Jordan Matthews locked into the No. 3 role. The 29-year-old will hope to latch on elsewhere with a receiver-needy team.
Aiken made one 14-yard catch in Sunday's 26-23 loss to Tennessee.
On the bright side, at least Aiken made it into the box score this week after being shut out in Week 3. However, with the return of Alshon Jeffery, the 29-year-old was on the field for just nine snaps and was flagged for a third-quarter holding penalty on one of them. With Jordan Matthews having vaulted up the depth chart in the short time since his signing, an injury will likely have to befall the Eagles' receiving corps before the Central Florida product sees a meaningful amount of playing time again.
Aiken played 45 offensive snaps (55 percent) in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts but was not targeted in the passing game.
Seven other Eagles saw multiple targets on the day, leaving Aiken out entirely despite his ranking fourth among skill players in snaps. While it is certainly discouraging he didn't see any looks in Carson Wentz's return, the fact that the 29-year-old was on the field so much would indicate he'll probably get a few more chances if Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is still out Week 4 at Tennessee.
Aiken caught five of his six targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Buccaneers.
Aiken just re-signed with the Eagles this week with Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) set to miss another game and caught the first pass of the game from Nick Foles for a three-yard gain. The 29-year-old would see more action after Mike Wallace left the first quarter with an ankle injury. If Jeffery and Wallace are forced to miss more time, Aiken might be in line for more work against the Colts in Week 3.
