Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Gets $200K guaranteed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 that 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.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Reaches deal with Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles signed Rodgers to a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rodgers burst onto the scene in 2015 in the absence of Jordy Nelson, posting a 58-510-8 line on 85 targets. His production fell by the wayside in his other three seasons with the Packers, however, as Rodgers combined for 62 receptions (on 106 targets) for 656 yards and five touchdowns while seeing more responsibility as a blocker. With Zach Ertz comfortably embedded as the No. 1 tight end, Rodgers doesn't project to have much of a pass-catching role in Philadelphia. That said, Ertz has missed one or two games in each of the last three campaigns, so Rodgers may occasionally be in line for elevated snap counts with his new organization.

Packers' Richard Rodgers: Out for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) will not play in Week 17 against the Lions.

Rodgers was forced out of the Packers' Week 16 game by his shoulder injury, and it turns out the setback will prevent him from suiting up Sunday for the first time in his career. Rodgers came up big for the Packers with 77 yards and a score, but he otherwise totaled just 83 yards and no touchdowns over the other 14 games he played in 2017. It's clear the Packers view him as a depth player after signing Jared Cook and Martellus Bennett the last two offseasons, so it remains to be seen if, as an unrestricted free agent, Rodgers returns to the only team he has played for or seeks a new opportunity elsewhere.

Packers' Richard Rodgers: Watches practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) sat out Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Rodgers only played two offensive snaps before departing the Packers' 16-0 loss to the Vikings on Sunday with the shoulder injury. If Rodgers is unable to get back on the practice field the next two days, he'll likely sit out Week 17 against the Lions, paving the way for Lance Kendricks to handle the bulk of the snaps at tight end.

Packers' Richard Rodgers: Will not return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) is out for the rest of Saturday's game against the Vikings.

With Rodgers out, starting Lance Kendricks will continue to log a full workload at tight end. If updates aren't available after Saturday's game, Rodgers' status will likely remain unclear until practices resume Wednesday.
