The team announced it agreed to a one-year contract with Nate Sudfeld on Tuesday morning.

The 26-year-old quarterback was set to be Wentz’s backup last season but suffered a broken wrist in his non-throwing hand during the preseason. The injury led to Philly signing Josh McCown out of retirement. McCown is currently a free agent.

Philly likes Sudfeld’s talent, he’ll enter his fourth season in Doug Pederson’s system, and by all reports gets along well with Wentz. Entering his fifth season, however, the signal-caller lacks experience, having thrown just 20 regular-season passes in his career.

Given Wentz’s injury history, the backup QB in Philadelphia will always be a key spot. The question is whether the Eagles will roll with Sudfeld in that gig or bring in competition this offseason.

Elsewhere in the NFL on Tuesday:

» Former Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips agreed to a three-year deal with the Cardinals, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports. Phillips had a career-high 9.5 sacks in Buffalo last year.
