Minshew is leaving Jacksonville as a backup to play behind second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts and joins veteran Joe Flacco. The Eagles confirmed the trade on Saturday, announcing the release of quarterback Nick Mullens.
Talk of trading Minshew began shortly after the team drafted Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick back in April. But first-year head coach Urban Meyer said he wasn’t making any decisions, instead, encouraging a fierce competition between the two.
