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.

  1. Indeed he is, another Super Bowl trophy this year. Wouldn’t you love to be a phila. Fan? Be truthful…. 🏆🏆

  2. Why wouldn’t he be?! SB champ two years ago. Division round playoffs last year. Playing on a team that’ll be competing for another one this season.

    Oh and rich. Really, really rich.

  3. Ariani, I bet 2018 was the worst year of your life, after watching the eagles win the super bowl. Pretty pathetic when a teams super bowl victory effects your life that way. You must not have very much going for yourself.

  4. Gotta say the Eagles are winning this off-season…and the league new year hasn’t even started yet!

    Solid move by the Howie (again).

    Though I don’t expect a veteran camp body–I’m more expecting a late round flier on someone like Rypien from Boise St.

  5. Solid QB for backup. Sudfeld would have started for the Redskins (after Smith/colt went down), if the Eagles hadn’t picked him up off their practice squad.
