If the Eagles don't want to spend a roster spot and would rather go with a practice squad addition they can elevate when needed, Maxx Wililams could be an interesting pick.
The former second-round pick obviously never lived up to the potential that made him such a high selection for the Baltimore Ravens in 2015, but there's a big difference between being a disappointing draft pick and a disappointing player overall.
Williams has made 45 starts (playing 83 games total) over his eight-year NFL career, playing four years each with the Ravens and Arizona Cardinals.
The big knock has always been his development (or lack thereof) as a receiver. Williams only eclipsed 1,000 career receiving yards in 2022 — his eighth pro season.
105 receptions in 83 games isn’t exactly something to write home about. But he’s caught 79.5% of the targets thrown his way over his career, and over four seasons in Arizona he averaged 10.5 yards per target. Like Arnold, that hits the “can catch a ball if he’s left open” minimum threshold.
Even when disappointing as a receiver, Williams has almost always graded out well as a blocker. And considering how often you’re running the ball when your third tight end is on the field, that’s obviously a big priority for adding one in Philly.
