Eagles Sign Backup Quarterback with Ties to Kellen Moore

The Philadelphia Eagles are adding further quarterback depth behind Jalen Hurts, signing former journeyman signal caller Will Grier.

Grier, 28, spent the 2023 season with stints on the New England Patriots’ practice squad and the Los Angeles Chargers’ practice squad.

Eagles, Kellen Moore

In Los Angeles, where he was in the same quarterback as Justin Herbert, Grier played underneath new Eagles offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.

Grier’s signing was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Originally chosen by the Carolina Panthers in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Grier appeared in two games that season, completing 28-of-52 passing attempts for 228 yards.

Grier’s signing follows the Eagles’ trade to acquire Kenny Pickett from the Pittsburgh Steelers, who will likely serve as Hurts’ primary backup during the upcoming 2024 season. The West Virginia standout had two stints with Grier, as the pair were also together with the Dallas Cowboys during the 2021 and 2022 NFL seasons.

However, Grier now has the opportunity to act as a conduit from Moore to the rest of the quarterback room helping Hurts and Pickett get up to speed with the terminology and concepts of a new offensive system.
