You’d think the Philadelphia Eagles are stacked when it comes to the quarterback position. Between MVP-caliber Carson Wentz, Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, “future MVP” Nate Sudfeld, and former Packers’ Joe Callahan. As of Sunday this week, they’re even more stacked at the position – former New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg and the Eagles agree to one-year deal.
Despite Hackenberg’s college success at Penn State, he recorded one of the worst quarterback performances in preseason – in a 2016 preseason game, the 23-year-old went 11-for-31, 54 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception that was returned for a 90-yard pick six, all against the Eagles.
Obviously, Eagles aren’t looking for a starting quarterback job, but Hackenberg will add depth to the position, and we will get a chance to see him in preseason games.
The #Eagles are signing QB Christian Hackenberg, source said. Not a reflection on health of Wentz/Foles or anything else — just a chance to try developing another QB with talent, as they have with Nate Sudfeld.
