2. Trade Sudfeld after preseason if stock rises

Whether the Eagles want to admit it or not, the main reason behind only signing Sudfeld to a one-year deal seems to be so Philadelphia can keep their options open beyond the 2020 season without the financial commitment.

It would be one thing if Sudfeld were a proven reliable starter, and the Eagles decided to lock him up for the long run to make sure Wentz had the proper insurance in case he suffered another injury at some point, but Philadelphia clearly only wanted to commit for one year.

Then again, another option the Eagles could always consider with Sudfeld is wait until preseason arrives to see if he manages to increase his own stock before pulling off a trade with another team in need of help at quarterback.

This may not sound like the best option since Sudfeld didn’t exactly have teams going out of their way to sign him during free agency, but circumstances change all the time in the NFL, especially when unfortunate injuries take place.

Depending on how things play out in preseason with other team’s quarterback situations, if Sudfeld plays well enough, maybe Philadelphia would be able to pull off a deal to land an extra future draft pick.
