Eagles sign ex-49ers QB Nick Mullens

Jun 14, 2021 at 7:06 AM--


The Philadelphia Eagles announced today that they have agreed to terms with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens. He joins a quarterback room that has Jalen Hurts and Joe Flacco.


The 49ers signed Mullens as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss in 2017. He completed 211-of-326 attempts (64.7 percent) for 2,437 yards with 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions through 10 games with the 49ers in 2020.

Mullens, 26, has completed 64.5 percent of his passes for 4,714 yards with 25 touchdowns and 22 interceptions through his three NFL seasons. He did not play as a rookie in 2017.

Only one quarterback, Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, has passed for more yards than Mullens through his first 16 NFL starts. Mahomes racked up 5,100 during those starts while Mullens passed for 4,405, supplanting former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck for the No. 2 spot.

Mullens' season ended during Week 15 after the quarterback suffered an elbow that required offseason surgery. He was not expected to return to San Francisco in 2021. The team also allowed backup C.J. Beathard to leave and sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

"I love Nick. He helped us out a ton here," head coach Kyle Shanahan said in April. "Nick had a real tough injury that he's working through to come back from, and I think he'll be healed up around camp. That's why he's out there as a free agent, and we'll see what happens to him.

"But I know Nick was thrown into a tough situation for us last year that he didn't play his best, but we didn't help him around him either. Kind of like a lot of our team last year. But I have the utmost respect for Nick, and once he gets healthy, I believe he'll get a shot somewhere."

The 49ers quarterback room currently consists of Jimmy Garoppolo, rookie Trey Lance, Josh Rosen, and Nate Sudfeld.

Nick Bosa will soon go through his first practices with the San Francisco 49ers since tearing his ACL last September, but if his offseason workouts are any indication, he appears to be ready to go. Bosa's 2020 season came to an end due to the injury, which took place against the New York Jets on September 20. He's been working on rehabbing the injury since then and has made it a point over the past few months to share videos on his progress, both in a public capacity and in private with the 49ers. "The coolest thing with Nick is he's pretty good with documenting his workouts and sending them our way," 49ers general manager John Lynch said during a media session

Lynch and Shanahan were asked if there were any other potential candidates that they knew of. "A couple of guys that you know had some things that we'll see on their physicals, if

He did not participate in team drills today, and the team will continue to ease him into on-field work. Nick Bosa, who missed most of last season due to a torn ACL, looks leaner. The pass
