Roster Moves: Eagles secure their QB3
When the Eagles announced their initial 53-man roster, just two QBs were on the depth chart after waiving Reid Sinnet and UDFA Carson Strong.
GM Howie Roseman stated yesterday that they’ll find a third quarterback, and they did just that this afternoon.
First reported by ESPN’s Field Yates, the Eagles have claimed former Saints QB Ian Book off waivers.

Book’s college position coaches/OC, Tommy Rees, started his coaching career on staff with Nick Sirianni/Shane Steichen with Chargers.
Book has one NFL start to his name, going 12-20 passing for 135 yards and two interceptions (while getting sacked eight times) in a loss to Miami.
In preseason, Book completed 42 of 65 passes for 315 yards and two TDs to go along with 121 rushing yards. He’ll join the 53-man roster as the Eagles’ third quarterback behind Jalen Hurts and Gardner Minshew.
