Trey Burton was best tight-window target of all TEs in 2017

Ian Rapoport, also of NFL Media, noted the deal is worth $32 million over four seasons. Burton may only have five career starts to his name, but Week 14 last season was the flawless example of what he's capable of after filling in for the injured Ertz by catching five passes for 71 yards with two scores. After hiring Matt Nagy - a young, aggressive offensive mind in the mold of Sean McVay - he got his second-year quarterback an additional weapon by giving tight end Trey Burton a deal to steal him away from the Eagles. His best game by far came against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13 last season when he caught five passes for 71 yards and two touchdowns. "We would have loved to have had Zach out there but he wasn't able to go, so Brent and I stepped in". With an average salary of $8 million a year, the 26-year-old ex-Florida Gator star will become the fifth-highest paid tight end in the National Football League.

The former quarterback was involved in one of the most memorable trick plays in Super Bowl history in February, the "Philly Special". Burton joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2014, carved out a role on special teams and then blossomed as a risky offensive playmaker the past two seasons under coach Doug Pederson.

In gathering darkness that made it hard to read putts, Woods holed a double-breaking, 15-foot par putt on the third extra hole. In 1998 in Thailand, Woods rallied from an eight-shot deficit in the final round and beating Els in a playoff.

It turns out his destination is Chicago, where Burton caught his first career touchdown pass from Carson Wentz in 2016.
