At least one more hole on the Eagles is now filled: Backup(ish) quarterback. According to reports, the Eagles are bringing back Mark Sanchez on a two-year contract worth $9 million, $5.5 million of which is guaranteed. That money is somewhere between backup and starter money, so Sanchez could compete for a starting job (or take the gig as a mentor to the next generation of the much-hyped top pick).

On the wide receiver side, the Eagles and Jeremy Maclin are reportedly very close to getting a deal done, but aren’t quite there yet. And as for Byron Maxwell, which looked to be a done deal? His agent said it’s not quite done:

It’s likely that’s just a rules thing, but it looks like Tuesday’s gonna be a real busy day.

  1. never won a super bowl, I want a login system so I can take every user name, #1975hashtag

    I am a miserable degenerate looking for attention

  2. Maclin is going to KC. Nice work there Jim.

    Our receiving corps is down to Jordan Matthews & a bunch o’ crap. To say they’re below mediocre is a compliment. I’ve been on board with Chip until this move. Losing 3 ProBowlers on offense in 2 years is just unacceptable.

    1. Don’t worry, were drafting a QB that nobody else wants…..and were giving up 4 picks and another QB who is 14-4 under Chip just to get him so he can learn under Sanchez


  3. I’m glad Sanchez is back for another 2 years.

    If the Eagles did not bring him back, I would have looked like a real asshole in my Pick Up The Shield t-shirt.

  4. He blows a game here and there with turnovers but with that being said he is more than adequate as a back-up.

  5. What is this, USC northeast? Sanchez sucks, that other idiot shouldn’t even be in the NFL. Foles is mid-level, at best. You don’t win without an elite QB.
