Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Thursday, June 20, that QB Matt Barkley is progressing nicely, picking up the team's verbiage as he learns the playbook. "A lot of the way we communicate is different than what he did in college, but he's been able to do very nicely here in the first few weeks," Shurmur said.
That being said, Barkley is still viewed as the No. 3 quarterback right now behind Michael Vick and Nick Foles. Right now, he is only worth a look in deeper long-term keeper fantasy formats, but he is one to watch during training camp and into the preseason.
