Philadelphia Eagles waive former Arizona Wildcats QB Khalil Tate
The Philadelphia Eagles have waived former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Khalil Tate.
The team announced the move Monday afternoon, a day before Tate was to report to camp with the rest of the league’s rookies.
Tate signed with the Eagles as a wide receiver after going undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Tate accounted for nearly 2,000 passing yards during his senior season in Tucson, tossing 14 touchdowns to 11 interceptions while playing in 11 of the Wildcats’ 12 games.
It was a step back for the QB, who threw for 26 touchdowns to just eight interceptions with 2,530 yards in 2018.
All told, Tate finished his Wildcat career ranked fifth in school history with 6,318 passing yards. His 2,285 rushing yards rank 13th in school history.
