Shortly after his Washington release, Richard Rodgers will return to Philadelphia. The Eagles re-signed the veteran tight end Tuesday.
This will mark Rodgers’ seventh NFL season. Rodgers spent the past two with the Eagles, though he only played in eight games. While best known for catching a Hail Mary from Aaron Rodgers in Detroit nearly five years ago, Richard Rodgers caught eight TD passes in that 2015 season. He only has one catch for seven yards since his four-year Green Bay stay concluded.
Rodgers, 28, landed on the Eagles’ IR list with a foot injury last August. The team, however, re-signed him in December. Tuesday’s agreement doubles as Rodgers’ fourth one-year Philly deal.
