It's worth noting that the Eagles have had to deploy their backup quarterback twice in the last two years, both times with spectacular results.
First things first, McCown's addition obviously does nothing to Carson Wentz's fortunes moving forward; he's going to be the face of the franchise for a very, very long time.
McCown is signing a one-year deal with a $2 million base salary, which is fully guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He will most likely play in the team's fourth preseason game against the Jets at MetLife stadium in order to get up to speed. While he may stick around for the remainder of August, barring an injury settlement, Kessler will likely be on the lookout for a new team to continue his professional career with - either in the National Football League or XFL.

Saturday, the Eagles signed former Jets quarterback Josh McCown to a one-year deal, a person familiar with the situation confirmed to NJ Advance Media. Sudfeld injured his wrist in the Eagles' preseason opener and his recovery is expected to be six-plus weeks.
That left Wentz and rookie Clayton Thorson, who rebounded well from an ugly preseason debut, as the only healthy quarterbacks on the roster entering this week's joint practices with the Baltimore Ravens. Nate Sudfeld suffered a broken left wrist in the first preseason game on August 8 and won't return until the regular season.
