WHO’S NO. 2 BEHIND EAGLES QB CARSON? SUDFELD GETS A SHOT!

By Michael Donovan

Considering Carson 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 him 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.
