Who’s the Eagles’ Starting QB? DeSean Jackson Wants to Know
(NEW YORK) — From the beginning of OTAs, new Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has let it be known that the team will have an open quarterback competition. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson wishes Kelly would make up his mind on who it’ll be.
Even though the Eagles drafted USC quarterback Matt Barkley in the fourth round of this past April’s draft, the starting job seems to be a battle between Michael Vick and Nick Foles. During OTAs and minicamp, Vick and Foles and have essentially split the reps with the first team offense.
With training camp about a month away, Jackson wants to know who the starter will be.
“The team wants to know, too,” Jackson told NFL Network. “We need to go into training camp prepared and know who is going to be our starting quarterback.”
“To make any decisions on who someone is from wearing shorts and T-shirts, doesn’t make sense to us,” Kelly said.
Vick has been the Eagles’ starting quarterback since 2010. Foles started six games as a rookie last season.
