CAN DALLAS GOEDERT AVOID INJURY FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 2018?

By Max Harper

Tight end Dallas Goedert has been a consistent presence in the Eagles passing game, though injuries have been present throughout much of his career.

The 29-year-old has not played a full season since his rookie year in 2018, and he has missed eight combined games across the past two years (including a fractured forearm in 2023).

Goedert is under contract through 2025, but that year calls for a non-guaranteed $14.25 million in compensation and a cap charge of $11.81 million.

The Eagles could thus look to move on from Goedert by adding a successor in the same way he took over from Zach Ertz. In 2023, Goedert’s average of 42.3 yards per game was his lowest mark 2019, and Philadelphia’s offensive pecking order includes wideouts A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith along with running back Saquon Barkley. Both Brown and Smith signed lucrative extensions this offseason, while Barkley inked a three-year pact including $26MM guaranteed to provide the team with a pass-catching option out of the backfield. Goedert is not concerned about where things stand with respect to his financial outlook at the moment, though.

“I feel really good,” the South Dakota State alum said (via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer). “I’m not too worried about it. I love being in Philadelphia. I’m going to give them everything I’ve got and let the chips fall where they may fall.”
