Former Nevada star Strong gets $320K deal with Philadelphia Eagles

The wait turned out to be not long at all for former Nevada quarterback Carson Strong.

After going undrafted in the seven rounds of the 2022 NFL draft, Strong signed a free-agent contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday for $320,000 in guaranteed money, including a $20,000 signing bonus, according to NBC Sports, which notes the $320,000 deal is the largest amount for any undrafted free agent this year.

Nevada Sports Net was first to report the news Saturday of Strong being offered a contract by Philadelphia.

It was not a banner draft overall for quarterbacks.
