Howie Roseman has done it again. The Philadelphia Eagles have traded a conditional 6th round pick for Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew.
Following the move the Eagles have released third string QB Nick Mullens.

The terms for the conditional picks have also been set, and I believe the Eagles got a steal.
The 6th rounder can become a fifth rounder for the #Jaguars if Minshew plays 50% in 3 games. For the #Eagles, they considered spending a late-rounder on a QB this year. Instead, they use a late-rounder next year on a QB with starting experience. https://t.co/LRXTcIc3lS

Minshew comes in with starting experience and is the perfect back up for if Jalen Hurts were to go down. There are a lot of similarities to their game, and physical apparences.
This move tells me they’re keeping three QBs, and Minshew has a real possibility to be number two guy.
