On Saturday morning, the Eagles made the move to acquire Gardner Minshew, and the team’s two backup quarterbacks won’t cost the franchise any more than $5 million combined.
In 2019, Minshew agreed to terms with the Jaguars on a four-year deal worth a total of $2,710,884, which included a signing bonus of $190,884, a total of $190,884 in guaranteed compensation, and an average yearly salary of $677,721.
According to Over The Cap, Minshew will have a cap hit of $850,000 in 2021 in addition to having a base salary that is set to be $850,000 in the same year.
Minshew made eight starts out of the nine games in which he played in 2020. He completed 216 of 327 passes with 16 touchdowns and had a passer rating of 95.9. His passer rating of 95.9 is the second-highest ever recorded by a quarterback in the history of the organization who had at least 300 passing attempts.
If Minshew participates in fifty percent of this season’s snaps, then that draft pick may become a fifth-rounder in 2022. However, this outcome is extremely unlikely to occur.
Minshew is a major upgrade over Nick Mullens, who had not looked like himself this summer following offseason elbow surgery and was released once the Minshew transaction was done. For the time being, Minshew slots in as the quarterback who plays third behind Jalen Hurts and Joe Flacco.
