The Eagles have their backup for Carson Wentz for the 2020 season, as today it was reported that the team has re-signed Nate Sudfeld to a one-year contract.
The contract is reportedly worth $2 Million ($500K guaranteed) with another $1 Million in incentives.
Sudfeld has been in Philadelphia since 2017, which was when the Eagles added him to their practice squad after the Washington Redskins cut him. So far in his career, he has appeared in just three regular-season games, completing 20 of his 25 passes for 156 yards and one touchdown. He got extended game action in the 2017 regular-season finale, where he registered at the time the 3rd-best completion percentage in a game by an Eagles quarterback in franchise history (82.6%).
In 2019, Sudfeld was supposed to be Carson Wentz's primary backup, but a wrist injury in the first preseason game put him out of commission through the first few weeks of the regular season. The team brought in Josh McCown to fill in for Sudfeld for the time being, but eventually, McCown surpassed Sudfeld on the depth chart permanently.
Now heading into 2020, as long as he doesn't suffer another preseason injury, Sudfeld will have the highest role he has ever had in the Eagles offense.
