One day after head coach Doug Pederson said that the No. 3 quarterback spot is being evaluated, the Eagles have agreed to send Mark Sanchez to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a 2017 conditional draft pick.
The former first-round pick of the New York Jets started 10 games over the past two seasons for the Eagles going 4-6 in those contests. Overall, Sanchez completed 64.3 percent of his pass attempts for 3,034 yards with 18 touchdowns against 15 interceptions in his time as an Eagle. In 2014, Sanchez set the franchise record with a 64.1 completion percentage, only to have it broken this past year by Sam Bradford (65.0 percent).
The Eagles brought back Bradford on a two-year contract on March 1 and signed Chase Daniel on Thursday to be the No. 2 quarterback. McLeod Bethel-Thompson is also on the roster. Thad Lewis, who was the No. 3 quarterback last season, inked a one-year deal with San Francisco on Thursday.
