For anyone who has followed the NFL over the last week, you have probably seen or heard something related to the mess at the quarterback position in Philadelphia. First, the Eagles opted to give average, at best, quarterback Sam Bradford a massive 2-year, $35 million contract. Next, Philly paid career backup quarterback Chase Daniel to a 3-year, $21 million deal.
Now, if giving big deals to two guys who don't deserve to start anywhere in the league isn't bad enough, the Eagles then traded a massive haul of picks to Cleveland in exchange for the number two overall pick in the NFL Draft, which they in turn used to select Carson Wentz, who will seemingly be the franchises quarterback of the future.
So, with two massively overpaid players and a number two overall pick all on the roster at the quarterback position, the Philadelphia Eagles have quite the mess on their hands.
For some reason, they have interest in making it even worse. Adam Caplan reports that the Eagles are expected to bring in undrafted quarterback Everett Golson for a tryout during their upcoming rookie minicamp.
Golson, who is 23, wound up going undrafted a few weeks ago and is now looking to secure an invite to training camp.
Golson spent three years at Notre Dame before transferring to Florida State for his senior year.
In total, Golson threw for 7,628 yards while completing 61.2 percent of his passes to go along with 52 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. He also ran for 546 yards and scored 14 rushing touchdowns.
Maybe I'm crazy, but even considering adding yet another quarterback to the fold in Philadelphia makes zero sense whatsoever. With the questions continually piling up as it is, what good does it do to add another player at the position? I guess it's just another case of Philly being Philly.
