2. Give Sudfeld competition by adding veteran quarterback

Is Nate Sudfeld the best long-term option for the Eagles at backup quarterback in case Carson Wentz were to suffer another devastating injury in the future?

Unfortunately, this is still one of the big mysteries surrounding Philadelphia at the moment since a broken wrist suffered by Sudfeld last preseason forced the team to convince Josh McCown to come out of retirement, but at least they are willing to provide him another chance.

Clearly, the Eagles had nothing to lose in signing Sudfeld to a one-year deal this offseason since options were already limited to begin with.

But also, since Sudfeld is still somewhat unproven in a meaningful scenario, Philadelphia would be smart to bring on some veteran help just in case.

Certain players such as Joe Flacco or Cam Newton may be long shots at the moment since they could end up being too expensive, but there are other options to consider.

Whether it happens to be another experienced veteran such as Blake Bortles or Trevor Siemian, either of these players would seem helpful towards Sudfeld as far as providing competition is concerned.

Plus, keep in mind that if Philadelphia were to take up a roster spot with another veteran quarterback, this doesn’t necessarily guarantee they will still be around come September.
