Rodgers, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Packers back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,761,016 contract with the Packers before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Eagles last year.
Philadelphia placed Rodgers on injured reserve at the start of the regular season. He returned following the team’s Week 9 bye and was brought back this offseason on another one-year deal.
Unfortunately, Rodgers was placed on injured reserve coming out of the preseason.
In 2018, Rodgers appeared in 7 games for the Eagles and caught one pass for 7 yards.
