Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo participates in private workout with Eagles

The Eagles are still looking at the quarterback position.

The Eagles may be happy with Sam Bradford as the team's starting quarterback, but they are still doing their due diligence at the position. Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo participated in a private workout with Eagles quarterback coach Ryan Day prior to his Pro Day on Wednesday, a source told Bleeding Green Nation.

Fajardo had an extremely productive career at Nevada after taking over for current 49ers passer Colin Kaepernick. He finished his college career with 9,659 passing yards, 57 passing touchdowns and 29 interceptions. He also ran for 44 rushing touchdowns in four seasons with the Wolf Pack.

Fajardo's mixture of passing accuracy and mobility likely appeals to the Eagles. He clearly fits the type of passer that could flourish in Chip Kelly's offense and be a great developmental option if the team were to move on from No. 3 passer Matt Barkley.

A move for youth at the quarterback position would make sense with two veterans at the top of the depth chart in Bradford and Mark Sanchez.
