Eagles coaches have "showed no confidence" in quarterback Matt Barkley, and he figures to fight for a roster spot this summer, reports Eagles 24/7. Barkley appeared in one game last season and has accounted for five turnovers and no touchdowns in his two-year career. Philly drafted Barkley at the start of the fourth round of the 2013 draft.
Asked about his quarterback situation heading into 2015, Eagles coach Chip Kelly expressed support for Nick Foles but did not fully endorse him as the team's quarterback of the future, reports Philly.com. Kelly said he needs to make a decision on Foles based on his limited body of work. "The reality is the reality," Kelly said, referring to the broken collarbone that ended Foles' season after eight games. "I can't say, 'Hey, let's not make a decision because I need to see him play 16 more games.' In certain times we're going to have to make decisions, so you have to make it based on what you have. We don't have any control over the injury." Foles threw 13 touchdowns against 10 interceptions this year after sparkling with 27 touchdowns and two picks last season. Foles has one more year on his contract at $660,000, while replacement Mark Sanchez is scheduled for free agency. Matt Barkley is signed for two more years but has thrown one pass this season. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur sounds like a believer in Foles. "I think we know what we have in Nick, and we've seen a guy that I think, by last count, he's 14-4 as a starter," Shurmur said. "So that's really how you judge a quarterback."
Eagles second-year quarterback Matt Barkley has thrown one pass this season and has not taken any first-team snaps in practice, reports Philly.com. But as the No. 2 quarterback behind Mark Sanchez, Barkley is an injury away from playing. He said he feels ready, should that situation arise. "I feel like I've grown a lot," Barkley told the webiste. "I have. My comfortability with the receivers and our personnel. The knowledge of the offense. I feel light years ahead of last year – that's for sure."
