The Eagles wish to have a stable of quarterbacks able to go in case something happens to starting quarterback Jalen Hurts. Prior to now, the Eagles have tried to develop a backup quarterback not only to contribute if called upon but to spin right into a draft asset if there isn’t a room for them to play and teams have interest in them.
The Eagles appeared to proceed that philosophy Wednesday. A day after the Eagles released Reid Sinnett, the team claimed former Latest Orleans Saints quarterback Ian Book off waivers. Book looked to fill in because the third quarterback behind Hurts and backup Gardner Minshew. Nevertheless, it looks as if Book may not have been their first selection.
