Nate Sudfeld Returning to Eagles for 2020

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Thank God we’ve got some Eagles news to get us through the first week of Coronavirus lockdown. Big V, Hassan Ridgeway, Corey Clement, and Javon Hargrave (more on him later today).

This piece of information isn’t exactly groundbreaking, but Nate Sudfeld will be returning to the Birds on a one-year deal:

I don’t have a Sudfeld take. I’m struggling to come up with one. If he hadn’t broken his wrist in the preseason, then Josh McCown is probably never signed out of retirement in the first place (unless Cody Kessler and Clayton Thorson would have been later cut and McCown added as a QB3 anyway). But when the playoffs began, Sudfeld was healthy and inactive while McCown was the #2 quarterback on the depth chart, so go figure.

I guess the Eagles still see upside in a 6’6″, 26 year old who doesn’t have a lot of in-game experience. Sudfeld has still only thrown 25 career passes, 23 of which took place in 2017 when he was playing in the meaningless Dallas loss.

Welcome back, Nate Studfeld

  1. Way to be on top of things, “expert”.

    Can’t help but notice crossing broad’s crack team of hacks were asleep at the wheel last night, with no mention of the hargrave deal or any of the other happenings in football.

  2. Hopefully this means McCown isn’t back. As stated, we are going to suffer through at least 2, more than likely 3 more season of 7-9, 9-7 mediocrity due to horrible drafts and bad contracts

  3. Eagles need a real backup QB, because when, not if Wentz gets injured they need an NFL game-ready QB

  4. big fan of when kyle made fun of chris mortenson for being drunk on the air when in reality he had throat cancer says:

    “I don’t have a Sudfeld take” is code for “No real writer has written or tweeted about him today so I don’t have anything to copy and paste”
