Kessler was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2016. He started eight games for them, throwing eight six touchdowns, two interceptions, and 1,380 yards. His record was 0-8. In 2017, Kessler didn’t start any games, but saw the field three different times. He threw no touchdowns, one interception, and 126 yards. He ended the season with a 47.8 completion percentage.
Following the 2017 season, Kessler was traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a conditional 2019 seventh-round draft pick. Kessler made his Jaguars debut against the Houston Texans after the team bench starter Blake Bortles. Kesler ended his season with the Jaguars by starting four games, and throwing two touchdowns, two interceptions, and 709 yards. He was then released by the team last Thursday.
Kessler will most likely serve as depth at the quarterback position for the Eagles. His signing is simular to when the Eagles signed Joe Callahan last season, right before OTAs kicked off. This year, Eagles OTAs are scheduled to start on May 21st, next Tuesday.
Contract details for Kessler are yet to be released.Follow @EaglesFeast
