Eagles Sign UDFA QB Jerrod Johnson

The Eagles have signed former Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson to a contract. Johnson plays with a Michael Vick style. He's a scrambler, but has a strong arm. 

Teams knocked him for his accuracy issues, but Michael Vick also had accuracy issues early in his career. That all changed last season, though. And at 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, Johnson can take some heat in the pocket. Solid pickup for the Eagles. 

The team had this to say about Johnson.

"Jerrod Johnson finished his collegiate career holding 24 Texas A&M school records including total offense (8,888 yards), passing yards (8,011), completions (650) and touchdown passes (67). He also holds two Big 12 and A&M records for passes without an interception in one season (225 in 2009) and an overall streak without an interception (242 from 2008-09). His best season came as a junior in 2009, when he set five school single-season records in passing yards (3,579), completions (296), attempts (497), touchdowns (30), and total offense (4,085 yards). In addition, Johnson ranked second on the team that season with eight rushing touchdowns. The Houston, TX, native attended Humble HS, where he was named the Houston Touchdown Club Offensive Player of the Year as a senior."
