Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Matt Barkley told 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly that he plans on making an immediate impact. “I don’t exactly know what type of system it is going to be. I probably have similar questions that you do,” said Barkley, per PhillyMag.com. “Once we get into rookie camp next week I’ll have a better idea. But in terms of what style of quarterback he needs, I have heard him say multiple times both to the public and to me personally that he is going to make the personnel he has fit in the system. So without a doubt I have confidence that I can come in right away and make an impact, or just help the team in whatever way I can. “I don’t think it matters what people say about me and what type of quarterback I am, I think Coach Kelly will make it work.” Barkley says his shoulder feels great. “It feels great. It won’t bother me for the rest of my career,” he said. “It was something that took a little while just to get back to normal, but I am good to go. It should not affect the way I throw. It hasn’t hurt at all since I’ve been throwing recently. It feels strong.” I’m not sure why kind of impact Barkley can make as a rookie.  I can’t imagine  him beating out both Michael Vick and Nick Foles for the starting job.     Need NFL Tickets?
