Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie acknowledged that they’re still looking for a franchise quarterback.
“We need someone to step up, whether it’s an existing young quarterback or somebody we go out and acquire,” Lurie told CSNPhilly.com. “We know — this is no secret — quarterback is the [ultimate] position and the most important difference-maker.”
Lurie made t clear that their top priority is finding a quarterback they can build around for the future.
“We want to have very healthy, high ability at that position, with excellent leadership and a lot of smarts and a lot of moxie. Someone that really can take that position and run with it,” Lurie said. “And so Nick is going to have a great opportunity to showcase what he’s done. He’s had some outstanding games and he’s had one poor game.
“Time will tell. I think it’s really wide open for those that are on the team and it’s wide open for what our strategy might be if we don’t have it. But it’s a No. 1 priority. We’ve got to solidify that position in a really good way.”
