The Eagles signed Grier to a one-year deal Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The 100th overall pick in the 2019 Draft by the Panthers, Grier is joining his sixth team since entering the NFL. He hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since his rookie season, when he started two contests for Carolina and completed 28 of 52 passes (53.8 percent) for 228 yards, zero touchdowns and four interceptions. In all likelihood, Grier will be a camp quarterback for the Eagles behind Jalen Hurts and newcomer Kenny Pickett.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could win backup job behind Burrow
QBFree Agent
September 4, 2023
Grier was signed to the Bengals' practice squad Wednesday but will be given a chance to win the No. 2 quarterback job, Jay Morrison of the Pro Football Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Jake Browning is currently the backup to Joe Burrow, but the 27-year-old has never seen a snap in a regular-season game during his four years in the league after being an undrafted free agent in 2019. Grier has a stronger pedigree, having been a third-round pick of the Panthers that same year and coming off a dazzling performance in Dallas' final preseason game before being released to make room for Trey Lance. Burrow is dealing with a calf injury but appears on track to be under center Week 1, so Grier could be afforded a bit of time to get familiar with his new offense before he might be needed.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
2019
Grier, a third-round pick in 2019, did not play a single snap under new Panthers head coach Matt Rhule last season. That came despite then-starter Teddy Bridgewater missing a little time, as Rhule preferred P.J. Walker in his absence. Walker then won the backup job this summer, but Grier landed on his feet with the Cowboys after the Panthers waived him at the end of the preseason. The recent third-round pick could soon unseat Cooper Rush for the backup QB job in Dallas.
Drafted in the third round last year, Grier was deemed as a potential insurance policy should then-starter Cam Newton endure more injury struggles. When Newton went down after two games, however, the Panthers started Kyle Allen in 13 of their last 14 outings, with Grier only getting the call Week 16 due to an Allen injury. Overall, Grier completed under 55 percent of his passes and threw no touchdowns versus four interceptions as a rookie. This season, the Panthers no longer roster Newton or Allen, but Teddy Bridgewater and PJ Walker were acquired to replace them. With Bridgewater tabbed as the starter, Grier is now slated to compete with Walker for second-string duties under new coach Matt Rhule, whose experience coaching Walker in college gives Grier an additional hurdle to clear ahead of his second season.
Grier was drafted in the third round this year to back up Cam Newton in Carolina. Opportunities will be scarce, unless Newton is injured, but Grier is a work in progress anyway. Although his arm strength is merely average, Grier is an accurate passer (67.0 completion rate last year). He is described by scouts as having a gunslinger mentality even if he doesn't have a gunslinger's arm, which is probably why he gets reckless at times - 20 interceptions in two seasons at West Virginia. Still, he threw for 7,354 years and 71 touchdowns the last two years for the Mountaineers, showing plenty of upside. Carolina's receiving corps is rather pedestrian, though second-year WR D.J. Moore has big-play potential. If nothing else, Grier can always dump it off to Christian McCaffrey and Greg Olsen.
