Eagles add quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson to roster

Bethel-Thompson AP

The Eagles might not have a starting quarterback, but they at least now have another one besides Mark Sanchez on the roster.

According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, the Eagles are signing journeyman McLeod Bethel-Thompson to add some names to the depth chart.

Bethel-Thompson spent some time with the 49ers practice squad last year. He has also been with the Dolphins, Vikings, Patriots, and of course, the Los Angeles Kiss.

With Sam Bradford heading toward free agency and the team not inclined to franchise tag him, the Eagles were down to Sanchez as their only quarterback under contract.

    Vikings season ticket holder here that has seen the kid play in preseason. Better than Sanchez.

    Good move by Philly. I always thought McBLT was underrated.

    Eagles have zero good options at qb.
    No wonder they’re thinking about getting Foles back.

    “Vikings season ticket holder here that has seen the kid play in preseason. Better than Sanchez.”

    If anyone watched the Eagles-Lions game last Thanksgiving, Winnie the Pooh is better than Sanchez.

    This guy is legit. He has more Arm Talent than Sanchez. If they bring in Chase Daniel, he would be him out as well. Only Question about MBT is can be a leader people respect? He is not very presidential in how he speaks but anyone who has watched the kid realizes he could become the Eagles starter if given the chance.

    Roseman’s back! (poor poor Dougie…)

    Did you get that picture of McBLT from the dictionary when you looked up “journeyman”?

  13. genericcommenter says: Feb 18, 2016 12:31 PM

    He might set the record for most teams as a 4th QB. I think he started for the UFL back when that was thing.

    You know what they say, when you have those two quarterbacks on your roster, you have no quarterbacks.

    I like this better than bringing Chase Daniel in. Give him the keys to the car and let him drive it around this year. Draft a promising young kid and groom him.

    Per overthecap, 78th of 78 QB contracts for 2015. While I have no idea of the kids actual capabilities… bottom of the barrel seems apropos.

    Wow! Desperate…maybe the Eagles can get clipboard Jesus also.
