Quietly, Reid Sinnett is arguably having the best camp of all of the Eagles’ QBs.
How many of you were prepared for conversations about how well Reid Sinnett was performing at camp? We knew this was Jalen Hurts’ team. We knew Gardner Minshew, unless traded, would walk into the coming regular season as his backup. What we didn’t know was how things would shape up in the battle for the title of third-string quarterback.
At first glance, it appeared as though undrafted rookie Carson Strong would walk in and snatch the rug from under the now-third-year veteran, but as Lee Corso would say, not so fast.
After Philadelphia’s first four practices, according to 94 WIP-FM’s Eliott Schorr-Parks, Strong completed 11 of his first 22 passes and tossed three interceptions with no touchdowns. Reid Sinnett had been much better (19 completions on 28 attempts, one TD, no picks). Simply put, sure, he’s playing versus guys who probably won’t make the team, but Sinnett has been better.
His arm looks better. He’s made throws that Strong has struggled with. We’ll have to wait and see if that trend continues.
Andre Chachere is making plays. After, entering camp seemingly behind K’Von Wallace on the depth chart at safety, he’s proven himself to be so much more than a special teams player.
His interception of Jalen Hurts on the sixth play of the Saturday practice session was one of the highlights of the morning, and if he continues on the path that he’s currently traveling, he could slide past Wallace on the depth chart as the Eagles’ fourth safety. Keep an eye on him. The Eagles’ coaching staff most certainly is.
