Eagles Sign Ex-49ers QB Nick Mullens
As Adam Caplan from the Inside the Birds Podcast hinted at last week during Football at Four, the Eagles have signed veteran quarterback Nick Mullens, formally of the San Francisco 49ers to be their No. 3 QB.
Mullens started eight games in 2020, including one against the Eagles, throwing for throwing for 2,436 yards, 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions for the season.
In the game against Philadelphia, Mullens went 18-26 for 200 yards, one touchdown and two picks in a 49ers loss. He was replaced in the game by C.J. Beathard, who came in and nearly led the 49ers to a comeback win.
Overall, the 26-year old has started 16 career games, tossing 25 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.
The Eagles wanted to add a quarterback that fit their west coast style of offense, and rookie head coach Nick Sirianni landed Mullens, who gives the team a solid No. 3 option to not only add to the quarterback room, but to help develop the bottom of the wide receiver depth chart.
"Mullens, who played against the Eagles last year when the Eagles went to Santa Clara. played in a west coast offense," said Caplan last week.
The Eagles quarterback room is currently occupied by Jalen Hurts, Joe Flacco and now Mullens.
