3. Easton Stick, QB

The future of the Eagles' quarterback room is almost as murky as the running back group. At least in regards to the backup situation, since Jalen Hurts is the no-doubt starter here for years to come.

Veteran Marcus Mariota was brought in to bolster this unit in 2023 with his starting background and dual threat skillset that's similar to Hurts. Yet, Mariota completely underwhelmed in his first year. He was unimpressive in the preseason, and then failed to do much against the New York Giants in Week 18 (13/20 for 148 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT).

Meanwhile, Tanner McKee emerged as Philly's QB3 following a strong preseason. The 2023 sixth-rounder didn't get any playing time this year, though, so his NFL debut still awaits.

Now Mariota is set to hit free agency, and McKee doesn't have much job security as a low-paid backup. That sets the stage for a QB competition in training camp, and Moore may want to bring in familiar face Easton Stick as a possible option.

Stick went from the bench to Los Angeles' starter over the final four games of the season following Justin Herbert's late finger injury in 2023. Thurst into an unfortunate situation with several key players down, Stick wasn't a total disaster. He threw just one interception over four starts while averaging 237.5 yards per game.

Stick isn't the biggest name or someone with a ton of experience. But he's the exact kind of player teams bring in during the preseason to see what they can offer. It'd be no surprise if Moore floats Stick as someone Sirianni should take a closer look at.
