The Eagles have found their backup to Jalen Hurts and hes local. The Eagles have signed quarterback Joe Flacco to a 1 year deal for a guaranteed $3.5 million with an additional $4 million in incentives
The Eagles are signing QB Joe Flacco, per his agency @JLSports3.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 23, 2021
but not everyone thinks this is a good signing. Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice thinks it’s ridiculous. Pointing out that Flacco was paid half that by the Jets to go 0-4 last season. So…Howie strikes again?
Lol what?!? Flacco made less than half that last year, and went 0-4 as a starter. What an absolutely ridiculous signing. Just laughable. https://t.co/YoLfhd65QJ— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) March 23, 2021
The 36 year old Audobon New Jersey native was selected 18th overall by the Ravens back in 2008. He eventually led that franchise to a Super Bowl. At this stage he is a mentor/veteran backup who fans will no doubt be clamoring for if Jalen Hurts struggles AT ALL.
Hey! Welcome home Joe!
