New Rumor Links Gardner Minshew to AFC Team
The Philadelphia Eagles have already had a lot of turnover this offseason from their NFC-winning roster, and another name could be gone soon based on a recent rumor.
According to Zak Keefer of The Athletic, the Indianapolis Colts are "looking into" quarterback Gardner Minshew.
This isn't too surprising given that the Colts' new head coach, Shane Steichen, was previously the Eagles' offensive coordinator for the last two seasons. Minshew spent those two years with Philadelphia as well, drawing four starts and serving as the team's primary backup to Jalen Hurts.
With Minshew now available, Steichen is apparently interested in reuniting with him in Indy. The Colts are currently searching for a new signal-caller after releasing Matt Ryan earlier this week, so there's an opening for Minshew for there.
The 26-year-old would likely have a backup role with Indianapolis as well, as the Colts are expected to draft or sign Ryan's replacement. Still, having a connection to Steichen as well as previous experience playing in the AFC South could make Indianapolis an attractive landing spot for Minshew.
If he does go, the Eagles will have to add "backup quarterback" to their growing offseason to-do list.
