Ertz, who was a second-round pick in 2013, returns as the team's leading receiver and the Eagles also signed Richard Rodgers as a free agent. They have one pick in the sixth round and another in the seventh.

The Philadelphia Eagles selected Florida State defensive end Josh Sweat on Saturday in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft with the 130th overall pick. His breakout came in 2016, when the junior snagged 92 passes for 1,293 yards and 11 touchdowns, earning him unanimous FCS All-America honors.
