On Friday morning, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Zach Pascal was assaulted and robbed at gunpoint.
The incident occurred in Upper Marlboro, Maryland — the 28-year-old’s hometown.
At approximately 2:25 AM, two suspects approached Pascal. They were armed, demanding his things, eventually taking off with a diamond necklace he was wearing. Pascal was treated for minor injuries at the scene. The suspects still remain at large.
Pascal entered the league in 2017 as an undrafted free agent. The [then] Washington Redskins signed him, but two days after he was waived, Pascal joined the Tennessee Titans. In 2018, the Indianapolis Colts claimed him off waivers. He was tendered for the 2021 season.
In March 2022, the Eagles signed Pascal to a one-year contract, reuniting with former Colts’ offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni. Unfortunately for Pascal, he didn’t see much playing time with A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith on the active roster. The wide receiver finished with 15 receptions for 150 yards and one touchdown.
The Eagles were made aware after the incident took place this morning.
“The organization is aware of the matter involving Zach Pascal. We have been in contact with Zach and are happy to hear he is doing fine.”
Pascal is one of 20 Eagles’ players to become a free agent this offseason.
