article imagePhiladelphia Eagles Rumors: Colt McCoy best backup QB option?

By Larry Seely     Feb 6, 2014 in Sports
Philadelphia - Nick Foles established himself as the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, but with Michael Vick set to hit free agency, the front office needs to find a veteran backup for the 2014 NFL season.
Matt Barkley was drafted last year, but the former USC signal caller struggled in his brief time on the field last season and with Chip Kelly's high pace offense, injury concerns are real and help will be needed.
Andrew Kulp of Bleacher Report has looked at the problem and suggested Colt McCoy as the best option. The 27 year-old didn't play a single down this past season, but his experience and cost would fit the Eagles budget, but also give the franchise a good shot at winning football games if Foles is injured.
Another option is Josh Freeman, who was released by Tampa Bay early last season and finished the year on the bench with Minnesota. The youngster has had success in the league and his downfall could have him ready to take on the 2014 season with something to prove. Freeman has mobility, something needed in Kelly's offense, but also big game experience, making him another solid option, but only if the price fits what the Philadelphia Eagles are trying to do with the NFL salary cap this off-season.
