Philadelphia Eagles Sign Former Jaguars Tight End

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed former Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Dan Arnold to a one-year contract, according to reports by multiple sources, including ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The specifics of the deal have not been disclosed.

Arnold, a 28-year-old undrafted free agent from Wisconsin-Platteville, is expected to provide additional depth at the tight end position for the Eagles, alongside players such as Dallas Goedert, Jack Stoll, Tyree Jackson, Dalton Keene, and Grant Calcaterra.

Arnold's performance during the 2021 season was modest, with only nine receptions on 13 targets for a total of 135 yards and no touchdowns across 17 games.

However, he had a much better year in 2021, recording 35 receptions and 408 receiving yards with the Jaguars and Carolina Panthers.

Arnold is not expected to be the primary pass-catching tight end for the Eagles, as that role is likely to be filled by Goedert.

However, if Goedert misses any playing time, Arnold could have an opportunity to contribute in that role.

Over his five-year career, Arnold has amassed 95 receptions for 1,258 yards and seven touchdowns across 59 games played. Photo Credit: Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports
