Eagles add tight end depth, sign Nebraska UDFA Jack Stoll
Philly continues to stockpile undrafted free agents tonight, signing Nebraska TE Jack Stoll to a deal. Stoll will join several other UDFAs, including Trevon Grimes and Jhamon Ausbon, among others. The 2019 season is where Jack thrived, but he took a back seat to his teammates during the 2020 season.
Dropped passes have always been a concern for the Eagles the last several seasons, but Stoll’s best trait is his ability to pull in throws. From the looks of it, Stoll is your stereotypical tight end being a good blocker but also a bit slow and a weak route runner. These traits aren’t necessarily a bad thing, though, and Jack can work out an excellent role, possibly as the TE3 for the Eagles behind Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz if he returns.
The Eagles are in a rough spot with tight end depth. Zach Ertz clearly doesn’t want to return, and Richard Rodgers is currently a free agent while the Eagles don’t have much cap space remaining. Hopefully, Stoll can use this opportunity to succeed and work his way onto an NFL roster next season.
