Eagles sign former Colts wide receiver to a one-year deal
The Philadelphia Eagles made their second splash in free agency this afternoon, signing former Colts wide receiver Zach Pascal to a one-year contract.
Pascal seemed like an obvious move, having previously played under Nick Sirianni during his time in Indianapolis. At 27-years-old, the Eagles finally get the veteran wideout they’ve been looking for to pair with DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins.
During the 2021 season, Pascal recorded 384 yards and three touchdowns but had back-to-back 600 yards seasons the previous two years. It’s not the flashiest signing, but Christian Kirk sent the wide receiver market into the stratosphere, which priced out any solid WR2 available.

The Eagles have been active on the receiver market, pursuing Calvin Ridley, Robert Woods, and even Jarvis Landry before landing on Pascal. Philly could pursue another elite wideout this off-season, but it’s doubtful Howie Roseman will draft a WR in the first round for the third season in a row.
The contract situation is unknown, but with their little cap space remaining, this shouldn’t be a big cap hit. Philly isn’t likely done yet, with Steven Nelson and Rodney McLeod both still free agents.
