Eagles trade conditional 6th round pick for Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew



The Eagles have traded a conditional third-round pick for 3rd-year QB Gardner Minshew to add some depth to the QB position. The sixth-round pick could become a 5th-rounder if Minshew plays 50% of the snaps in three games this season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.


The Eagles have also released QB Nick Mullens since this move. Minshew is expected to be the third-string QB for now behind backup Joe Flacco.


Minshew, who took over for Nick Foles in 2019 as a starter for the Jags, finished 6-6 as a rookie starter. He came into 2020 as their starter, until a thumb injury midseason caused him to miss significant time. Minshew, then lost his job to #1 overall pick, Trevor Lawrence in training camp this summer.


Minshew, has a 7-13 QB record, along with 37 touchdowns to 11 interceptions, and a 93.1 passer rating for his career. Not too shabby for competing on an awful Jaguars team for his first two years in the league. He is also very affordable, with a base salary of $850,000.


Overall, a solid move to add QB depth at a cheap price.
