Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens once threw for 414 yards in a single game back in 2018. He is one of a handful of guys very high on the Philadelphia Eagles’ wish list right now.
The Eagles are interested in signing a West Coast-style signal-caller prior to training camp, per NFL insider Adam Caplan. The plugged-in reporter said that Philly was 100% definitely going to sign a third-stringer in the coming weeks. Mullens was the most notable name followed by former Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings backup Sean Mannion. There is also an unknown third player in the quarterback mix. Here is what he said on the Inside the Birds podcast:
They are. That’s going to happen. They’re going to add one guy, um, my understanding is it’s going to be kind of a West Coast offensive guy. The names that I’m hearing … Nick Mullens, formerly of the Niners, who definitely played in a West Coast offense.
