Nate Sudfeld is ready to go for the Eagles’ offseason program.

Sudfeld, the backup to Carson Wentz in Philadelphia, signed his second-round restricted free agent tender and will participate in the start of the team’s offseason program, a league source tells PFT.

The 25-year-old Sudfeld has never started a game but has seen some playing time for the Eagles the last two years and has looked fairly good, completing 20 of 25 passes for 156 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. With Nick Foles now in Jacksonville, the Eagles wanted to make sure Sudfeld would stick around. He’s expected to serve as the No. 2 quarterback, and given Wentz’s injury history, there’s a fair chance he’ll see the field this season.

The Eagles have one other quarterback on the roster: Luis Perez, who recently signed after playing in the Alliance of American Football.

  1. My Redskins are desperate for a QB because we drafted Sudfeld, but decided to put him on waivers to try and sneak him to the practice squad! This was when they were making no commitment to Kirk Cousins and NOT drafting any other QB! I love my skins, but this is why the Eagles were the defending champions last year and the Redskins aren’t within a continent of even seeing the playoffs for the foreseeable future!

  2. Sudfeld will definitely see some action this season, especially if they don’t come up with a better plan B for Jason Peters. Counting on him to play most the season healthy is a fantasy. He has showed promise but they need to get him more playing time, even in the regular season to verify what he is, I like him.

    And Nick Foles won a Super Bowl, and looked pretty good doing it. If he turns into another Foles isn’t that a good thing?

    Sudfeld is Foles but young.
    sudfeld is the worst qb in football tahst why hes a thrird string qb

  5. “Without Foles to bail out an injured Wentz the Eagles won’t sniff the playoffs.” Foles was 1-1 and looked terrible in the first two games, was the beneficiary of some better defense in the last 3 games, stat wise, Wentz was better than Foles. Foles was not great in the two playoff games, unlike the year before where he tore it up in the last two playoff games.
