The Eagles agreed to trade Flacco to the Jets today, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. The Eagles will get a sixth-round draft pick that can become a fifth-round pick depending on Flacco’s playing time, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Flacco could very well end up starting, especially if Wilson has to miss four weeks. White may get at least one more chance this week until Flacco can get up to speed, but many feel the Jets have needed a veteran influence around Wilson all along. Minshew is now back on the fantasy radar as the backup to Hurts, who has not exactly looked great so far this season. It may not be all that big of a surprise to see Minshew get some time at some point this season.
