Instead of being released by the Denver Broncos, tight end Albert Okwuegbunam is reportedly headed to Philadelphia in a trade with the reigning NFC champions.
The Broncos had reportedly indicated Tuesday morning that they intended to waive the former fourth-round pick, but the Eagles swooped in and sent a 2025 sixth-round pick to Denver in exchange for Okwuegbunam and a 2025 seventh-round pick, according to ESPN.
Okwuegbunam, 25, tore his ACL in his rookie season, missing 12 games over the past two seasons.
When healthy, the 6-foot-5, 258-pounder notched 54 catches for 546 yards and four touchdowns in 26 career games.
