Tye signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles on Monday.
Tye signed to the Eagles' practice squad in November after being waived by the Patriots with an injury settlement prior to Week 1. The tight end will have a chance to impress during the 2019 offseason program and training camp, but may have a hard time cracking Philadelphia's 53-man roster with Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Richard Rodgers all occupying the depth chart.
The Eagles signed Tye to their practice squad Tuesday.
Tye was waived by the Patriots with an injury settlement in early September. The 27-year-old tight end has 94 receptions for 897 yards and four touchdowns in 32 career games. The Eagles are pretty set at the tight end position with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, though it doesn't hurt to have an insurance policy waiting on the practice squad.
Tye cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve at the start of September. The 26-year-old had 90 receptions for 859 yards in his first two years with the Giants, but has been unable to find any footing with the Jets and Patriots over the last two seasons.
Tye (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.
While the nature of Tye's injury isn't clear, the tight end is now set to spend the 2018 campaign on IR unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
Tye signed a reserve/future contract with the Patriots back in February, but it looks like an injury ultimately cost the tight end a chance at a final roster spot. He will revert to the Patriots injured reserve once he clears waivers.
