Wide receiver Greg Ward is officially back with the Eagles for the 2021 season.

There wasn’t much suspense that he would remain with the team. They tendered him as an exclusive rights free agent earlier this offseason and that left him with the choice of signing the tender or sitting out.

The Eagles announced on Monday that Ward signed his tender.

Ward spent time on the team’s practice squad in 2017 and 2018 before a stint in the AAF before that league folded during its lone season of operation. He returned to the Eagles and has appeared in 23 games over the last two seasons.

He started 13 of them and caught 81 passes for 673 yards and seven touchdowns.

  1. This explains why the Eagles are comfortable trading back from the 6th pick to the 12th, with Ward in the fold who needs the STUD WR from this years draft?

  2. Jalen Hurts anointed Greg Ward as his favorite WR to throw to (as they had alot of time working together on the 2nd team). Ward is a very good slot WR, and can work the outside a bit as well. Other than Zach Ertz, Ward is probably the best 3rd down option the team has had in the past 2 years.
