If anyone remembers, the “Birds”, in 2019, elected to go the route of beginning the 2019 regular-season campaign with only two tight ends on the roster. If that happens again, no one is going to beat out Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.

If Philly takes a more traditional approach and they go with three tight ends, Joshua Perkins, another former undrafted rookie free agent that worked his way onto two NFL rosters (the Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles) is the logical choice to earn a roster spot as the third man.

Caleb Wilson, 2019’s “Mr. Irrelovant” (the last man taken in an NFL Draft) was a Second-team All-American and a First-team All-Pac-12 nod at the end of the 2018 college football season. With 24 games under his belt with a very proud UCLA Bruins program, he sports a collegiate resume that includes 114 receptions, 1,675 receiving yards, and five trips to the end zone.

Still, while most would say that Perkins is the best bet to fill the role of being Philly’s third option at tight end, we can’t even agree that Wilson is the fourth.

That distinction may belong to Noah Togiai. If something happens to Ertz, Goedert, or Perkins, he’s probably the next man up. Wilson deserves a shot to compete for a job somewhere, but it’s hard to imagine him getting a fair shot at competing for one in Philadelphia.
