The Philadelphia Eagles are in the market for a new third string quarterback, according to several reports.

The Eagles currently only have two quarterbacks on their roster: Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez. The team traded away Matt Barkley to the Arizona Cardinals and recently cut Tim Tebow.

There are a number of options Philadelphia can potentially pick from. The New York Jets recently released veteran backups Josh Johnson and Matt Flynn, who both played relatively well against the Eagles in the preseason finale. E.J. Manuel seems to be staying with the Buffalo Bills for now but the Eagles showed interest in him leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft. Rams backup quarterback Austin Davis could potentially be available.

Finding a third string quarterback isn't a huge deal, but it will be at least a little interesting to see how the Eagles address this position.
