Before the official announcement, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport revealed that C.J. Uzomah would be signing a one-year contract after undergoing a physical in Philadelphia on Thursday. The Eagles validated this information with a tweet:

“Free agent tight end CJ Uzomah, formerly of the Bengals and Jets, is anticipated to ink a one-year deal with the Eagles, according to me and Mike Garafolo,” Rapoport tweeted. “Uzomah, who traveled to Philly today and passed his physical, is expected to enhance their passing game and provide an additional offensive weapon.”

Uzomah, aged 31, was originally drafted by Cincinnati in the fifth round from Auburn in the 2015 draft. Across 106 regular-season games, he has amassed 192 receptions for 1,881 yards and 16 touchdowns. His most notable season was during the Bengals’ journey to the Super Bowl in 2021, where he achieved career-high statistics in receptions (49), receiving yards (493), and touchdowns (five).
