The Philadelphia Eagles await their 2019 NFL schedule, and Nate Sudfeld signs his tender. It’s all here on Philadelphia Eagles roundup.
Football enthusiasts will all be busy over the course of the next week plus. Philadelphia Eagles fans, and pretty much every fan of every NFL team will finally see how their 2019 regular season schedule shapes up on the 17th at 8 PM EST. Eight days later, the 2019 NFL Draft begins. Before we move along to Nate Sudfeld, let’s get a quick reminder on who Philly will see in their home and away schedule.
Her’s how things shape up for 2019. Philly’s got home dates with the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, New York Giants, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, New York Jets, and Seattle Seahawks.
On the road, they’ll lock horns with the aforementioned Cowboys, Redskins, and Giants, and they’ll also take on the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, and Atlanta Falcons.
Sudfeld gets a shot at the backup role.
If Eagles fans haven’t learned anything else over the last two seasons, they’ve learned you can’t win without consistent quarterback play.
Carson Wentz is the guy in the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen him go down with a season-ending injury twice in two seasons.
For that reason, ‘The Birds’ need to make sure they’re backup quarterback is a capable one.
Nick Foles is gone. Philly’s third guy on the depth chart over the past two seasons just signed his restricted free agent tender on Monday. That keeps him with ‘The Birds’, but it will also cost them $3 million.
Take a look:
Sudfeld will now be expected to channel his inner-Foles if anything happens to QB1. To this point, he hasn’t seen a ton of work.
For his career, one that began with the Washington Redskins of all teams, he’s thrown 25 passes and completed 20 of them. He’s also tossed a touchdown pass. You remember the one.
Well, don’t you?
Remember when he stepped in against his former team for an injured Nick Foles and got one into the end zone?
Nelson Agholor was on the receiving end, and well, these two Eagles teammates had to beg to get the ball back from an enthused young Eagles fan. Don’t worry guys. The kid got a nice consolation prize later. He got a football of his own to take home.
Don’t be surprised if ‘The Birds’ take a signal caller in this year’s draft to both bring along and potentially compete for the backup role. They already made one addition this offseason. They signed Luis Perez after the AAF suspended league operations earlier this month.
