Philadelphia Eagles Trading For Super Bowl MVP?
Are the Philadelphia Eagles trading for a Super Bowl MVP to be their backup quarterback?
The Denver Broncos are reportedly looking to move on from former Baltimore Ravens star, Joe Flacco.
With Drew Lock firmly entrenched as the franchise’s new quarterback cornerstone, the Broncos do not have much use for Flacco or his deal.
In a recent report, CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora suggested that the Eagles might be interested in Flacco as a backup for Carson Wentz.
The 35-year-old would essentially be a stand-in for Wentz, much in the way Nick Foles was. Given Wentz’s propensity for getting hurt, having an insurance policy in place makes a lot of sense.
Last year, Josh McCown served as Wentz’s primary backup. It remains to be seen if he ultimately returns next season.
If he does not, then Nate Sudfeld and practice squad quarterback Kyle Lauletta are essentially the only passers the team would have if something were to happen to Wentz.
The only other name being mentioned as a potential backup pick-up is Case Keenum.
With Dwayne Haskins’ emergence as the Washington Redskins’ new starter, Keenum is likely on his way out.
Over the course of this past season, Keenum recorded 1,707 yards and 11 touchdowns for Washington. Throughout his nine-year NFL career, Keenum has amassed 14,368 yards and 75 scores on a 63.4 percent completion percentage.
Philadelphia will likely signal which direction the organization is leaning in as far as backup quarterback goes at some point in the next few months.
