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.
Tye signed a reserve/future contract with the Patriots on Tuesday, Mikes Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Tye joined the Patriots' practice squad after being released by the Jets in early October. He has proven to be a contributing tight end, recording back-to-back 40-plus reception seasons with the Giants starting in 2015. All the tight ends on New England's roster are under contract through next season, so Tye will need to separate himself from the pack this offseason if he hopes to make the 53-man roster.
