Eagles Sign Former Jets Tight End: Report
This summer, the New York Jets made the decision to make a change in their tight end strategy; nevertheless, former veteran CJ Uzomah has found a new home with the Philadelphia Eagles.

On April 11, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport announced to X that Uzomah was joining the Eagles for a one-year contract.

FA TE CJ Uzomah, a former starter for the #Bengals and #Jets, is anticipated to ink a one-year contract with the #Eagles, as per @MikeGarafolo and me. After clearing his physical today on a flight to Philadelphia, Uzomah should strengthen their passing game and provide another weapon for the offense.

Before accepting a contract offer from the Eagles, Rapoport claims that Uzomah traveled to Philadelphia to undergo a physical examination. Following weeks of waiting since the commencement of free agency, Uzomah has at last secured a new team.

Uzomah will now have the opportunity to contend for the TE2 job in Philadelphia, which is something the Eagles are hoping for as they trail Dallas Goedert in the depth chart.

CJ Uzomah was an NFL late bloomer.
Uzomah needed some time to acclimate to life in the NFL. But when he did, he was able to profit.

In 2011, Uzomah graduated from Georgia High School with four stars as an athlete. Despite receiving offers from prestigious universities like Alabama, Georgia, and Clemson, Uzomah decided to play for the Auburn Tigers.

Uzomah’s blocking prowess was more well-known during his tenure at Auburn than his pass-catching skills. Even with his lackluster performance, he performed enough during the pre-draft process to be chosen by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Prior to Uzomah at the beginning of his career, Tyler Eifert was the starting tight end. He couldn’t break through as a full-time starter until 2018, and his breakthrough season didn’t come until 2021. As a crucial player for Cincinnati’s winning team in the Super Bowl, he caught 49 catches for 493 yards and five touchdowns.

Uzomah was able to make money in free agency because to his breakout season. Before the 2022 season, he inked a three-year, $24 million contract with the Jets, but he was unable to duplicate his 2021 output in New York.

Uzomah was cut by the Jets back in March. The 31-year-old now has the opportunity to make a difference in Philadelphia in 2024.

The Next Tight End in New York May Be Brock Bowers
Tyler Conklin and Jeremy Ruckert lead New York’s tight end room now that Uzomah is out. But that might soon change if Brock Bowers is selected by the Jets in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

In recent weeks, Bowers has been the most selected player in mock drafts. His playmaking skill has garnered similarities to San Francisco 49ers legend George Kittle. He was a three-time All-American at Georgia.

Bowers is attracting a lot of interest from the Jets. Just a few weeks before the draft, they even went to his special pre-draft exercise. Star cornerback Sauce Gardner, meanwhile, is sharing videos of Bowers on Instagram.

In the middle of the field, Aaron Rodgers may deploy a weapon similar to Bowers. It would relieve some of the strain on wide receiver Garrett Wilson and provide the Jets quarterback with a safety outlet.

All of this does not ensure that Bowers will be selected by the Jets. All indications, though, point to the Georgia tight end joining the Jets in 2024.
