If you're playing that whole Colin Kaepernick vs. RG3 game, don't bother. The Eagles aren't bringing in a veteran quarterback. Nick Foles is the starter. Nate Sudfeld is No. 2. And that's that. Judging by Twitter and callers to sports talk radio, there are a ton of fans out there who believe the Eagles should sign a veteran off the street, like Kaepernick or Robert Griffin III or even Michael Vick, to back up Foles. With Carson Wentz out for the year, Foles and Nate Sudfeld are the only quarterbacks on the Eagles' roster. Kaepernick quarterbacked the 49ers to a Super Bowl in 2012 and very nearly to another one in 2013 and started 11 games for the 49ers last year (going 1-10). RG3 is only 27 and was the Browns' opening-day starter last year — against the Eagles. Vick hasn't played since 2015 with the Steelers, but he always seemed kind of ageless, right? What if Foles gets hurt? What if he gets hurt in the NFC Championship Game? Sudfeld has never thrown a regular-season pass. He spent training camp with the Redskins and was on the Eagles' practice squad at the beginning of last month.
Colin Kaepernick or RG3 as backup? Eagles say no thanks
