The Philadelphia Eagles begin shaping their quarterback factory as such.
The much-debated and now fifth-year veteran, Carson Wentz, no longer has the wisdom of Josh McCown in the room to borrow from and is now almost two years removed from knowing the security of having Nick Foles as a backup. Still, the quarterback position for the Eagles is one of the easiest roster positions to figure out.
1. Carson Wentz, 2. Nate Sudfeld, 3. Jalen Hurts, 4. Kyle Lauletta
We’ve known what the situation is at signal-caller for a while. The Eagles want this to be Carson Wentz’s team. Stop debating it. “11” isn’t going anywhere. Anyone with any ability to take that away from him won’t be around. That’s one of the reasons why Malcolm Jenkins and Nelson Agholor are gone. It’s why he was given the big extension.
This was never going to be Wentz’s team with Jenkins here. Guys who are seemingly out to get him as Agholor seemed to be, won’t be around. Period.
To strengthen the quarterback room, he “Birds” took Jalen Hurts in the second round of the most recent NFL Draft. Nate Sudfeld is the backup, though no one is certain that he can’t be beaten out by the rookie. That alone is a problem seeing as how Sudfeld is the vet and has been on this team since 2017. He should be able to earn the backup role with relative ease, right?
Every snap Kyle Lauletta takes is an audition for another team unless someone gets hurt. Otherwise, Philly’s set at signal-caller.
