Default Eagles Sign Hackenberg

They view it as a chance to develop another QB. Low risk ,high reward.

Next month, after they've completed "developing him", Howie should contact
Miami and take nothing less than a low 2nd rounder in trade.

Color me BAFFLED by this move. He won't make the 53 man roster and MAYBE go to Practice Squad. Just a Head Scratcher IMO.

Well Callahan didnít exactly set the world on fire. Heís worth a look at least. It means Sudfeld doesnít have to play as many snaps next game too.

He doesn't cost anything to try. Worst case he gets beat up, best case he actually figures shit out and they turn him into their own QB or they get a pick for him. I think he has some talent, I don't think the brain strength matches the arm, maybe a couple good QB coaches will help him.

They need more than Callahan. Dude could barely see over the line! They need bodies especially if they are going to protect Foles more this pre-season. Hackenberg did really well under O'Brien who can develop QBs. I don't see it happening here but we certainly have the staff to coach him up.

He had some stretches at PSU where he was abysmal , but he was lights out on occasion too. He should have stayed in school.

Yeah. He was both an underachiever in college and the pros. If I remember correctly, he was one of the most heralded recruits ever signed by PSU. I kept waiting for him to break thru and it never happened. But, all you ever hear of is his potential.
