Mike Kafka generating interest on waivers
Quarterback Mike Kafka was waived Friday evening after the Eagles unsuccessfully attempted to trade him, but that doesn’t mean no one wants him.
Tim McManus of the Birds 24/7 Blog reports that Kafka has generated interest from the Chiefs, Patriots, Packers, and Browns since Friday’s roster move.
Kafka, a fourth-round selection in the 2010 draft, appeared in just one preseason game due to a fracture in his non-throwing hand. He’s expected to be healthy now and could compete for a No. 2 quarterback job on one of the above listed teams.
Kafka and Brian Hoyer, who was cut by the Patriots on Friday, are the two most interesting quarterback names currently on waivers. Kafka may be a bit more appealing to teams because he’s owed minimum base salaries in 2012 and 2013. The cost to claim Hoyer would be $1.927 million, the price of his restricted free agent tender.
