Eagles beat writer Matt Lombardo believes G.J. Kinne came out of preseason Week 1 helping his chances to make a roster down the line.

Clearly the Eagles want Matt Barkley to seize the third quarterback job. Head coach Chip Kelly invested a fourth-round draft choice in Barkley last year and he's taken a significant majority of the third-team reps in practice. However, Kinne outplayed the USC product Friday night. As the only Eagles signal caller not to throw an interception, Kinne finished 8-of-10 for 88 yards against the Bears. At one point during the spring Kinne was the second-sharpest quarterback in OTA and minicamp practices. He's unlikely to make the 53-man roster, but he just may have created an interesting lower portion of the depth chart position battle Friday.

Fantasy Impact: 

He still thinks Kinne is the guy to get cut but thinks he helped improve his chances to sign with another team.
