Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is out with a shoulder injury until at least Dec. 18 for the Bears game.

The conventional wisdom is that Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra and Tyree Jackson will fill in.

Delaware Journal’s Martin Frank has an out of the box idea:

But there is a player on the roster, who’s not a tight end, who very well could be the head of that committee.

That is wide receiver Quez Watkins.

It’s not like Watkins is unknown to the Eagles or the NFL. He just hasn’t had many chances this season. But this is what Sirianni said about Watkins last January, when Watkins had 43 catches for 647 yards: “He can be one of the best No. 2 (wide receivers) that I’ve been around in the NFL.”

Watkins’ totals last season aren’t far off from Goedert’s 2021 production of 56 catches for 830 yards.

That would seem more likely than relying on the Eagles’ other three tight ends − Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra and Tyree Jackson, who was just activated off the physically unable to perform list. The three have a combined 12 catches for 133 yards in their NFL careers.
