The Eagles worked out quarterback Paxton Lynch, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Lynch had workouts in Buffalo and Detroit last week.

Philadelphia has three quarterbacks on its roster — Carson Wentz, Nick Foles and Nate Sudfeld.

The Broncos waived Lynch on Sept. 3 after two unsuccessful seasons. Denver selected him in the first round of the 2016 draft, and Lynch started only four games and had a 76.7 passer rating with four touchdowns and four interceptions.

Philadelphia also worked out former Ravens linebacker Albert McClellan, per Yates.

  1. The Bills should sign him.
    That way they can give Josh Allen more time to develop and after Peterman gets knocked out of the next game, they can throw in Lynch behind that weak oline. Cut him after the season.

  2. Cue the Jerry Jones jokes, but on the real – I’d really like it if they kick the tires on him, because our current QB situation is FUBAR’d. Dak Prescott is garbage.

  3. I have no horse in this race, but Dak Prescott is a pretender. Paxton Lynch would not be a bad idea. Sometimes a change in scenery makes a difference….ask Case Keenum. So, perhaps Jerrah should kick the tires?

  4. Does anyone recall this guy sobbing on the bench in Oaktown after getting yanked? Does anyone want to duplicate that look on their team? Dude is a clown show.

  5. Detroit should have signed him and not let him out of town. Stafford was horrible last night. They’re looking at 0-16. What have they got to lose?

  6. No seriously, how is this possible (from someone that has seen every snapped in the NFL he has taken). Seriously.

  7. why not … although he stunk it up in Denver, he was considered by most everyone as a first round talent, if Philly can bring out the best in him, coach and put him in the right system, there’s no risk.

  8. Doug Pedersen performed miracles with the Birds last year. But Paxton Lynch reclamation? Doug, you’re out of your league

  9. “calizcowboyz says:

    Can’t hurt to kick the tires especially since Foles is struggling.”

    Here we have a cowboys fan talking smack on the Eagles BACKUP QB, when the STARTING QB for the cowboys is a fraud and a train wreck.

  10. What’s the over/under on teams he has a workout with before getting signed? I’d place it at 7.5.

  11. Funny thing about this is that prior to the Eagles trading up for Carson Wentz, that most mock drafts had them taking Paxton Lynch. I though they would too. Luckily, Howie Roseman was smarter than the rest of us and traded up for Wentz.

  12. The fact that he walked out of Buffalo – with their dumpster fire of a QB situation – without a deal is indication enough that he is awful.

  13. Take a deep breath everyone, considering his skill set and college back ground (not his work ethic) this is where he should be. Think about it…RPO in college, fresh start with new team…they need another QB…?
