Cody Kessler waived by Eagles, Josh McCown to be backup quarterback

The Philadelphia Eagles waived quarterback Cody Kessler.

What It Means:

Kessler lost out to Josh McCown for backup quarterback duties. Kessler suffered a concussion earlier in training camp and never had a chance to move up the depth chart. He is likely to find a home somewhere this season as a reserve signal-caller.

Kessler threw for 709 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions on 131 attempts last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
