Eagles News: Slow start for the tight ends

Signal or noise? Three numbers that may or may not tell us who these Eagles are - Inquirer
Eagles tight ends are on pace to finish the season with just 76 catches and 901 yards in 17 games. Their lowest single-season totals during Doug Pederson’s five years as head coach were 107 catches and 1,202 yards in 16 games. We’ll call this noise for now, but the evolution of the Eagles’ passing attack is definitely worth monitoring. Through two games, only nine of Jalen Hurts’ 39 completions have gone to tight ends, slightly over 23 percent. Of his 438 passing yards, 106 have gone to tight ends, which amounts to 24 percent.
