General Manager Howie Roseman said at the Combine the Eagles still were deciding on Carson Wentz‘s backup. Considering Wentz has missed eight games the past two seasons, the Eagles need a reliable backup to replace Nick Foles, who agreed to terms with Jacksonville.
Nate Sudfeld will get a chance to compete for the job after the Eagles extended a second-round restricted tender to the quarterback, according to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio.
Sudfeld still can negotiate with other teams, but the Eagles will have a chance to match any offer. They will receive a second-round draft choice if they choose not to match.
The tender is worth $3.1 million.
The Eagles are expected to seek a veteran quarterback to compete with Sudfeld for the job.
Sudfeld, 25, has appeared in three games since Washington made him a sixth-round pick in 2016. He played one game for the Eagles in 2017 and two last season.
He is 20-of-25 for 156 yards and a touchdown.
