3. Sudfeld deserves chance to be No. 2 quarterback
Experience wise, there’s no question that Flacco has the major advantage over Sudfeld since the former Delaware star will be entering his 13th NFL season in 2020.
But with Flacco getting up there in age along with his level of play being on the decline over the last couple of years, it’s easy to make a case for Sudfeld being the better option for next season.
Maybe if this scenario happened to be a few years ago, and Flacco was still playing on a high level, Philadelphia would be more open to the idea, but unfortunately this is far from the case.
Due to Wentz’s previous history of injuries, no one needs to explain to the Eagles the importance of having a reliable backup option at quarterback, and the team never would have considered bringing Sudfeld back if they didn’t feel confident in his abilities.
As great as it would be to bring an experienced veteran like Flacco on board to give Sudfeld an extra push for the No. 2 job, this move just seems like it would be a waste of time for Philadelphia.
If anything, the Eagles should focus on other positions they could benefit from bringing a veteran on board for since any potential Flacco signing just seems unnecessary.
