Ian Book finds new NFL home

·1 min read

The opportunity didn’t work out for former Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book in New Orleans: The Saints waived the former fourth-round draft pick on Tuesday. Book wasn’t out of work long, however,  he found a new home Wednesday.

Book was claimed by the Philadelphia Eagles who have Jalen Hurts and Gardner Minshew at the position, so the assumption is Book will be third string. Book started one game for the Saints last year going 12-of-20 for 135 yards with a pair of interceptions in a loss to the Dolphins.

Book becomes the only former Notre Dame player on the current Eagles roster.
