Eagles add former Colts wide receiver Zach Pascal

The Philadelphia Eagles added a new face to their receiving corps on Monday.

Howie Roseman signed former Indianapolis Colts wideout and Old Dominion star Zach Pascal to a one-year contract. Pascal has previous experience with Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni during Sirianni’s time as offensive coordinator in Indianapolis.

Pascal impressed during his collegiate career at Old Dominion, where he caught a school-record 233 passes for 3,184 yards and 30 touchdowns in four seasons there. He was also the first player in school history to be invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

The 27-year-old previously spent time with both the Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans before finding his role with the Colts. Pascal has totaled 1,888 receiving yards over the past four seasons with the Colts, scoring 15 touchdowns over that span.

His best seasons came in 2019 and 2020, where Pascal registered over 600+ receiving yards in each season and five touchdowns apiece. Pascal’s production took a step back in 2021, where he finished with only 384 yards and three touchdowns as Carson Wentz and Co. missed the playoffs.

Pascal also saw time as a kick returner in his first two seasons in Indianapolis, but has never scored a special teams touchdown.

Pascal joins a growing list of wide receivers in Philadelphia, which is headlined by second-year talent DeVonta Smith. Quez Watkins, Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, John Hightower, and Deon Cain will also be fighting for snaps in 2022.
