The Philadelphia Eagles are set with three tight ends, and there will not be very much competition although Zach Ertz may challenge Brent Celek for touches.
The Philadelphia Eagles are not expected to carry more than three tight ends, but all of them are quality.
Brent Celek will presumably hold onto his starting job, but the Eagles are expected to use two-tight end sets more often.
Zach Ertz, who is entering his second year, is expected to receive more targets after finishing his rookie season strongly. The former Stanford tight end caught three touchdown passes in his final five games.
Celek still has plenty of receiving ability, and he showed a knack for the end zone by catching six touchdown passes. He also has plenty of blocking ability. Ertz also offers plenty of blocking ability.
Rounding out the Eagles’ tight ends will be James Casey, who received plenty of targets in his time with the Houston Texans. He has been out of the equation for catching passes in the Eagles offense though.
However, Casey offers great value as a special teams contributor and can contribute in the passing game if either Celek or Ertz go down with an injury.
