Fun fact: Mullens threw for 4,405 yards in his first 16 starts, trailing only Patrick Mahomes for the most in NFL history.
Mullens started in 8 games for the 49ers last season in the absence of Jimmy Garoppolo and has accumulated 16 starts over the last 3 seasons. He now joins Jalen Hurts & Joe Flacco in the Eagles QB room following the release of UDFA Jamie Newman.
Mullens has completed 65% of his passes for 4714 yards, 25 TDs, and 22 INTs since entering the league in 2017 as an undrafted free agent.
