Ebron has played in 83 games in his six seasons with 47 starts. He has 283 receptions for 3,195 yards, an 11.3-yard average, and 27 touchdowns. He has 32 catches that are 20 or more yards, and six catches that are 40 plus yards.
His best season came in 2018 when he had 66 receptions for 750 yards and 13 touchdowns, all career highs. In 2019 he played in 11 games with 31 receptions for 375 yards and three touchdowns, finishing the season on injured reserve.
Ebron played college football at the University of North Carolina, where he established school tight end records for single-season receptions (62), single-season receiving yards (973), career receptions (112) and career receiving yards (1,805) as a junior.
