The amount of quarterback movement and quarterback controversy in the 2021 NFL offseason has been absolutely absurd. The same rings true for the Philadelphia Eagles, who still have not determined who their starting quarterback will be come Week 1 in September.
It was announced a few minutes ago by NFL Network and NFL Insider Ian Rapoport that the Philadelphia Eagles have signed former San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback, Nick Mullens, who will not likely backup both Joe Flacco and Jalen Hurts.
Mullens played college football for the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, where he surpassed Brett Favre’s single-season record for passing yardage (4,476) and touchdown passes (38). He played for the San Francisco 49ers from 2017 to 2020. Mullens was signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2017. He played eight games in 2018 and one game in 2019.
In other NFL news, earlier this offseason it was discussed that Nick Foles could very possibly be traded back to the Philadelphia Eagles where he won a Super Bowl in January of 2018 against the New England Patriots. Come to find out, Foles declined being traded back to Philly. With that said, the odds of Foles returning to play for the Eagles again seems very unlikely.
