Eagles claim QB from Miami, cut their long snapper


The Eagles on Monday made a flurry of roster moves, most notably trading Joe Flacco to the Jets for a conditional pick in 2022.

But they also claimed quarterback Reid Sinnett from Miami and cut long snapper Rick Lovato.

This means Sinnett is now the third-string quarterback behind Jalen Hurts and Gardner Minshew and the Eagles are without a long snapper.

An important note on Lovato: Because he’s a vested veteran, Lovato is not subject to the NFL’s waiver system so he’s not exposed. If the Eagles want to re-sign him later this week, they won’t have to worry about him getting claimed by another team.

Lovato, 29, has been with the Eagles since the 2017 season and has played in every game since then. He was a Pro Bowler in 2019.

Sinnett, 24, was just waived by the Dolphins, who were interested in bringing him back to their practice squad if he cleared waivers.

Undrafted out of San Diego in 2020, Sinnett has spent time with the Buccaneers and Dolphins but has never played in a regular season NFL game. This preseason, Sinnett completed 30 of 45 passes for 401 yards with 3 touchdowns and 1 interceptions.

His passer rating of 107.7 was the highest in the NFL this preseason.
