The Eagles had their contract with QB Matt Nagy rejected today, but according to a league source, it was unrelated to his previous/now current again role with the team.
Nagy had been a coaching intern with the Eagles, who signed him to help with depth when QB Kevin Kolb went down with an injury. The league office voided the contract, however, leaving some to speculate it was because Nagy had been a coach of sorts with the team and thus perhaps stashing a potential player with the team, almost like carrying an extra player.
However, according to a league source, Nagy’s deal was negated because he already was under contract to an Arena Football League team. And even with the AFL, by various accounts folding/folded, it was a violation of league procedures. The Eagles could try to work out the situation and resubmit the contract, but the team now says it will go “in a different direction.”
So I guess this saga is over.
