Eagles re-signed restricted free agent TE Trey Burton to a one-year, $2.746 million contract.
Burton's passing-game role will shrink with the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, but the Eagles made sure to keep their athletic reserve tight end after Burton's mini-breakout 2016 campaign. Not yet 26 years old, Burton posted a 37-321-1 receiving line on 60 targets last season. A onetime college quarterback, Burton will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason. Apr 3 - 3:30 PM

Eagles extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent TE Trey Burton.

25-year-old Burton earned a prominent role in the Eagles' passing game last year, setting career highs in catches (37) and yards (327). An undrafted free agent in 2014, the Eagles would have risked losing Burton on a low tender. He'll return on a one-year, $2.81 million deal. With the Eagles expected to keep Brent Celek, Burton should remain in a limited role behind Zach Ertz.
Mar 3 - 7:05 PM

Trey Burton hauled in 5-of-6 targets for 39 yards Week 17 against the Cowboys.

Burton was held to five yards total in Weeks 14 and 15, but he was surprisingly involved down the stretch, seeing at least six targets in four of his final five games. It is unlikely Burton becomes a viable fantasy starter with Zach Ertz ahead of him on the depth chart, but he certainly showed enough for the Eagles to bring him back on a RFA tender next season.
Jan 1 - 5:01 PM

Eagles TE Trey Burton caught 2-of-6 targets for two yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Ravens.

Burton has become a bigger part of the Eagles' offense, but he's an unreliable fantasy option behind Zach Ertz. Burton would come more into play if Ertz missed time. Burton is worth stashing in most Dynasty leagues.

Trey Burton snagged two-of-six targets for 19 yards Sunday in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Steelers.

Burton may have been the only receiver Carson Wentz didn’t have great chemistry with on Sunday. Both of his catches came in the first half before the Eagles laid waste to the Steelers with a 21-point third quarter. Burton earned more targets than blocking tight end Brent Celek but Celek outgained him by 42 yards. Zach Ertz (ribs) could return after the Eagles’ bye week, which would likely send Burton back to the bench.

Trey Burton caught 5-of-7 targets for 49 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Bears.

His seven targets were second-most on the team behind Jordan Matthews. With Zach Ertz (ribs) out, Burton was a fixture in the Eagles' "12 personnel" featuring one running back and two tight ends alongside Brent Celek. Burton was the pass catcher, and converted a couple of big third downs before finding the end zone from two yards out on a tight end screen. Beat writer Jimmy Kempski talked up Burton all summer, and he looks like he could have a role moving forward, especially in passing situations. He's someone to monitor on fantasy watch lists.

Eagles TE Trey Burton will take on a bigger offensive role with Zach Ertz (ribs) sidelined.

Burton has just three career catches, but he was talked up all offseason. "Trey repeatedly showed day in, day out – it just wasn't an occasional thing for him to keep flashing in practice, to make plays," OC Frank Reich said. "It shows a lot of natural ability, instinctive ability. It's a big opportunity for him." Burton could match his career target total (4) on Monday night, but there are better streaming options available. Dennis Pitta, Virgil Green, and Jesse James top the list.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said he is confident TE Trey Burton (calf) will play this week.

Burton was not quite ready for the season opener after suffering a calf injury in practice last week, but he should be good to go for Monday night. With Zach Ertz (ribs) expected to miss, Burton should take on a much bigger role in the offense.
Thu, Sep 15, 2016 11:24:00 AM

Eagles declared TE Trey Burton, WR Bryce Treggs, S Terrence Brooks, OL Josh Andrews, OL Dillon Gordon, OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai, and OL Isaac Seumalo inactive for Week 1 against the Browns.

It means DE Vinny Curry (knee, questionable) will play. Burton suffered a calf injury in practice this week. He should serve an important role on offense when healthy.
Sun, Sep 11, 2016 11:33:00 AM

Eagles TE Trey Burton caught 5-of-5 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in Saturday night's third preseason game.

A special teamer and reserve to this point in his career, Burton has earned a first-team role in the Eagles' offense with a big camp. He did nothing but help himself with an efficient regular season dress rehearsal. 24 years old with a highly athletic skill set, Burton is worth a look in Dynasty leagues.

According to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, third-year TE Trey Burton has been "perhaps the biggest standout" at Eagles camp.

Burton made the team as an UDFA under coach Chip Kelly in 2014, but he's been criminally underused through two seasons. A born playmaker, Burton is in the Jordan Reed-Aaron Hernandez mold at 6'3/235. He's a QB-turned-WR-turned-TE out of Florida, and the athleticism shows on the field. With very little to get excited about at receiver, Kempski believes the Eagles' best offensive setup would be "13 personnel" -- one running back, one receiver, and three tight ends. Burton is expected to see a big boost in offensive snaps this season.

According to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, Eagles TE Trey Burton has been "balling, every single day" at training camp.

"Very simply, he's just a very good football player," Kempski wrote. "This year, he's going to play. Bank on it." Burton signed with the Eagles as an UDFA ahead of the 2014 season and has been a special teams mainstay through two seasons. He's caught just three passes for 54 yards on offense. But at 6'3/235, he's ultra-athletic as a QB-turned-WR-turned-TE out of Florida.

Trey Burton is locked in as the Eagles' No. 3 tight end.

Burton isn't facing any competition and is expected to fill the same role James Casey filled last season as a core special teams player while seeing occasional snaps on offense. The second-year UDFA out of Florida is a QB-turned-WR-turned-TE. The Eagles like Burton long-term as the No. 2 behind Zach Ertz.
Fri, Aug 21, 2015 09:37:00 AM

Trey Burton is expected to be groomed into the Eagles' future No. 2 tight end.

Burton, an undrafted project out of Florida last year, is a plus special teamer for now. Eventually, the Eagles hope he can play that role and back up Zach Ertz. Burton played some wideout at the University of Florida.

Eagles signed Florida WR/TE Trey Burton.

Burton (6-foot-2 1/8, 224) arrived at UF as a three-star dual threat-quarterback, but converted to a receiver/tight end hybrid position as a senior, the same spot once manned by Jordan Reed. He posted a 38-445-11.7-1 stat line in 2013. Burton is essentially a jack of all trades and master of none. He lacks athleticism to play wideout in the pros (4.62 forty, 30-inch vertical), and is quite small for a tight end. He'll have to prove he can play special teams before anything else.
