Philadelphia Eagles: 3 options for Nate Sudfeld with Jalen Hurts on board
By Dan Parzych
Now that Jalen Hurts is part of the picture for the Philadelphia Eagles, the team has a few options to consider in regards to Nate Sudfeld.
Earlier in the offseason, Nate Sudfeld appeared to be a lock for the No. 2 job at quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles behind Carson Wentz, but this would quickly change once the 2020 NFL Draft arrived.
In what ended up being one of the biggest surprises of Day 2 from the draft, the Eagles made the decision to use their second-round pick on Oklahoma‘s Jalen Hurts, despite other positions seeming like more of a need.
Not to mention, when taking into consideration that Carson Wentz received a hefty new deal last offseason along with the team’s decision in March to sign Sudfeld to a one-year deal to be the backup, this made the Hurts selection even more surprising to see.
With that being said, the main speculation at the moment is that Sudfeld will be the odd-man out as the No. 2 option behind Wentz since Philadelphia clearly saw something special enough in Hurts to use such a high draft pick.
Of course, just because the Eagles are so high on Hurts doesn’t necessarily mean he is guaranteed to succeed in Philadelphia since the youngster still has plenty to prove, which could actually work to the advantage of Sudfeld as well from a competitive standpoint.
Since the discussion of these two backup quarterback options for Philadelphia isn’t going to just go away anytime soon, it only seems fitting to discuss three potential options for the Eagles in regards to Sudfeld for 2020 with Hurts now part of the picture, both good and bad.
