The Facts: The Jaguars traded Minshew to the Eagles for a conditional sixth-round draft pick in 2022. Philadelphia released QB Nick Mullens has been released in a corresponding move.
Diehards Line: The pick can become a fifth-rounder for the Jaguars if Minshew plays in at least one half of three games. As for the Eagles, landing the young QB aligns with the consideration the club gave toward spending a late-rounder on a QB prospect this year. Instead, they will use a late-rounder next year on a QB with starting experience. Minshew has been the subject of trade rumors since the Jags landed the No. 1 overall pick, which they used to select Trevor Lawrence. The Eagles trading for the former starter continues general manager Howie Roseman's long-held stance of having as many serviceable quarterbacks in the room as possible. Rapoport added that veteran Joe Flacco is expected to stay on the roster despite the addition of Minshew, who will be brought along as Philly's QB3.
