The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly added depth at quarterback with the signing of Nick Mullens, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The reported move comes about a week after the Eagles waived undrafted free agent Jamie Newman, leaving only Jalen Hurts and Joe Flacco on the roster at quarterback. Mullens spent the past three years with the San Francisco 49ers, appearing in 19 games while making 16 starts.

If Mailata wins, then the Eagles would either relegate their 2019 first-round pick to the bench or look to trade him. Either way, it’s not the outcome the Eagles envisioned when they invested three picks to procure Dillard. If Dillard wins, then they are bypassing the size, upside and promise that Mailata displayed last season.
