Tight end Dallas Goedert isn't worried about his long-term status with the Philadelphia Eagles.

"I feel really good," Goedert told the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff Neiburg. "I'm not too worried about it. I love being in Philadelphia. I'm going to give them everything I've got and let the chips fall where they may fall."

He added: "I still feel like the best years are ahead of me."

Goedert signed a four-year extension in 2021. The 29-year-old will earn $6 million guaranteed this season but won't have any salary guarantees in the final year of the deal in 2025, per Over The Cap.

The former second-round pick missed five games in 2022 due to a shoulder ailment. He also missed three games last season after sustaining a fractured forearm but still managed to haul in a career-high 59 receptions to go along with 592 yards and three touchdowns.

Goedert said he hopes to carve out a feature role in the offense under new coordinator Kellen Moore. The Eagles boast playmakers in their huddle, beginning with quarterback Jalen Hurts. Wideouts A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith are among the most productive tandems in the league. New addition Saquon Barkley brings a dual threat in the backfield to elevate a unit that could be prolific in 2024.

The South Dakota State product credits Moore for changing up the reads and "making the offense make sense."

"I'm really excited for how he uses the tight end and how he feels like they can be a big part of the offense and help win games," Goedert said.
