G.J. Kinne has officially moved to wideout.

Kinne wisely decided he wasn't going to cut it as an NFL quarterback. He wants a chance to make the final roster as a receiver and special teams player.

Chip Kelly said G.J. Kinne has informed the team he no longer wants to play quarterback.

Kinne has been the Eagles' practice squad QB for the last two seasons. "Kinne wants to try to make the team as a special teams player, maybe a receiver or running back, kind of a multi‑purpose player on the offensive side of the ball," Kelly said. Tim Tebow has taken Kinne's spot as the No. 4 QB behind Sam Bradford (ACL), Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley.

Eagles QB G.J. Kinne will spend time at receiver and returner in the offseason program.

Signed to a reserve/future contract after Week 17, Kinne has made zero regular season appearances. He's currently the Eagles' No. 4 quarterback, only ahead of Tim Tebow.

Eagles signed QB G.J. Kinne to their practice squad.

Nick Foles is going through concussion protocol, Michael Vick's hamstring isn't 100 percent and Matt Barkley looked like a deer in the headlights against the Cowboys. At the very least, the Eagles are trying to protect themselves with a little depth ahead of the Week 8 game against the Giants. We'll know more about the status of Vick after Tuesday's practice.

Eagles waived QB G.J. Kinne.

Kinne never had a realistic shot at a roster spot after Chip Kelly drafted Matt Barkley. A 2012 undrafted free agent, Kinne's best-case scenario would be latching onto someone's practice squad, but it's unlikely.

Eagles signed QB G.J. Kinne.

Kinne originally attended Texas, but he transferred to Tulsa shortly after and threw for 9,472 yards and 81 scores. He signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent last year but was cut in June. Kinne is likely just a camp arm.
