The Eagles are still trying to navigate what they’ll do with Zach Ertz. But the plan for the other tight end appears to be clear.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Dallas Goedert said his agents at Rep 1 Sports are talking to the Eagles about a possible extension.
“I think contract stuff is still in discussions,” Goedert said. “I’m not too worried about that. I have to go out there and play really good football. I’ve got to worry about getting better 1% every single day … I’m leaving my contract stuff to my agent.”
Goedert, who the Eagles traded up to select in 2018, is entering the final year of his rookie deal. He is slated to earn $1.24M in 2021.
Goedert has spent the bulk of his career in Zach Ertz’s shadow, but the chatter throughout the offseason has been that Ertz is likely to be traded. Ertz is not participating at OTAs.
“If I could get the contract extension, I would love to be in Philly forever,” Goedert said. “Having the second contract is the ultimate goal, so the sooner you can get to it, I feel like it’s the better. But, either way, whether I get it or not, I’m going to have the same mentality.”
In eleven games last season, Goedert caught 46 passes for 524 yards and three touchdowns. He was fifth in the NFL among tight ends in yards per game.
