Eagles will not tender TE Jack Stoll, making him an unrestricted free agent

Philadelphia has a new offensive coordinator with Kellen Moore replacing Brian Johnson, and the changes are now trickling down to the roster.

Tight end Jack Stoll was a restricted free agent and would have been designated to remain in Philadelphia had GM Howie Roseman offered him a tender. The Eagles have opted not to, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports, meaning Stoll will test unrestricted free agency.

Stoll has been more run blocker than pass catcher over his first two seasons in the NFL, and his production diminishes anytime Dallas Goedert is out of the lineup.

If Stoll indeed signs elsewhere, one player to watch will be Albert Okwuegbunam.

The Eagles signed the tight end to a one-year contract extension ahead of NFL free agency after he played 57 offensive snaps and spent most of the season buried on the depth chart behind Goedert, Stoll and Grant Calcaterra.

Philadelphia acquired Okwuegbunam from Denver after a preseason finale in which the versatile tight end caught seven passes for 109 yards and a touchdown. But the Broncos didn’t have room for him on their roster, so they made a deal with the Eagles. Philadelphia traded a 2025 sixth-round pick and a 2025 seventh-rounder to the Broncos for Okweugbunam last August.

A fourth-round pick out of Missouri, Okweugbunam was targeted just once in four games of action last season and did not have a catch. Under Moore, an innovative play-caller, Okweugbunam has a better chance to find a role.
