Philadelphia had tendered Ward a contract back in early March.
Ward, 25, played in all 16 games in 2020 (10 of which he started). He led the team in touchdowns (six), targets (79) and receptions (53), to go along with 419 receiving yards.
Since joining the team in 2019, Ward has 619 total receiving yards, which is the most career yards of any current Eagles receiver. Not an ideal situation.
It’s still a solid move bringing back Ward. He can provide the Eagles a decent fourth receiving option at a very cheap price.
The Eagles have plenty of time to bring in additional help at wide receiver, whether that’s veterans through free agency or prospects in the draft at the end of April.
