Eagles Sinking a Ton of Money in Quarterbacks

The Philadelphia Eagles will be spending $25 million on quarterbacks in 2016 and that doesn’t even include whoever their first round selection will end up being after they traded up with the Cleveland Browns for the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. What makes this even more puzzling is that the soon-to-be Eagles rookie signal caller will not even dress on game day barring an injury to either starter Sam Bradford and new back-up Chase Daniel.

Bradford, the former Ram and first overall selection, was resigned to a two-year, $35-million contract and Eagles VP of football operations Howie Roseman has already stated that he will be the starter. Chase Daniel, who was the back-up in Kansas City last season, was inked as a free agent and will make $7 million in 2016.

The Los Angeles Rams moved up to the top and will draft one of the top two quarterbacks in the class – Cal’s Jared Goff or North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz and the Eagles will gladly take whoever is remaining, as both have been receiving impressive grades.

To move up, the Eagles had to overwhelm the Browns, who would have probably selected a quarterback if they stood pat. Philadelphia sent the number 8 overall pick, a third and fourth rounder this year, as well as their first and second round picks in 2017. In addition to the second pick, the Eagles also acquired the Browns fourth round selection this year.


For Cleveland, they come out of this with a bevy of high picks and still end up with a top-10. Before the two trades, some mock drafts had at least one of these quarterbacks falling out of the top-10. So neither is a slam dunk prospect; they just are the two best available at their position.
