Summary

Kessler has starting experience in Cleveland and spent last season in Jacksonville. He'll now get the chance to outduel Nate Sudfeld for the No. 2 role in Philadelphia, a role that was most recently held by Nick Foles -- Jacksonville's new starter. Kessler has long odds given Sudfeld's incumbency and strong play in the last two preseasons. (May 13)

Eagles | Cody Kessler to call Philadelphia home (Mon May 13, 04:33 PM) - Free-agent QB Cody Kessler (Jaguars) signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, May 13. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed. The Eagles also waived QB Luis Perez.

Our View: Kessler has starting experience that could prove to be valuable to the Eagles. They currently have Nate Sudfeld and rookie Clayton Thorson competing for the backup job to Carson Wentz. While Wentz continues to recover from his back injury, these three passers will compete in camp.

Eagles | Cody Kessler set to sign with Philly (Sun May 12, 12:49 PM) - Free-agent QB Cody Kessler (Jaguars) is expected to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, May 13, a source reported Sunday, May 12.

Our View: Kessler will be a lot cheaper than Nate Sudfeld even though he'll be new to the Eagles system. He could make the team as a third quarterback if the team isn't completely sold on Sudfeld to back up the oft-injured Carson Wentz.

Jaguars | Cody Kessler released by Jacksonville (Thu May 9, 12:26 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Cody Kessler was released by the team Thursday, May 9.

Our View: No surprise here. The Jaguars added Alex McGough this offseason and he'll compete with UDFA QB Gardner Minshew (Washington State) for the backup job to Nick Foles. Kessler has starting experience and should find a landing spot as a camp arm at least.
