The Eagles don’t have a quarterback problem, unless you consider too many quality QB’s a problem.
So, they don’t need Josh Rosen, the stellar UCLA signal-caller, who is considered a top draft choice this year. But even if they did, at 32 Rosen will be long gone.
MMQB’s Peter King has weighed in:
“To me, the NFL has an inherent distrust of rich kids. They just do. And you have to prove to them that being rich doesn’t matter.
“Josh Rosen’s family is wealthy. His great grandmother founded the Wharton School at Penn [actually it was his great, great, great grandfather]. His father is a very successful surgeon in Los Angeles. They’ve got a lot of money. So a lot of people in the NFL just sort of roll their eyes at that to begin with.
“The best answer he gave me is that having all this money and being this competitive and being at the combine and playing in the Pac-12, that should prove to you how much I love football and how much I want football.”
