Kyle Lauletta (born March 17, 1995) is an American football quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Richmond, and was drafted by the New York Giants in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Early life

Lauletta attended the East campus of Downingtown High School in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, and was the starting quarterback for the Cougars football team for his last two years. He came from a family of football players; his father and uncle played quarterback and punter for Navy, respectively, and two of his brothers have also been quarterbacks for Downington East. In his first start, he threw for 400 yards and ran for two touchdowns against the defending state champions. He also played lacrosse. Despite his accolades in high school, an off-season injury and bad luck largely prevented any premium FBS schools from recruiting Lauletta, and he eventually chose to attend Richmond.[1][2]

College career

Lauletta played at Richmond from 2013 to 2017.[3] He tore his ACL in 2016 on a quarterback scramble after leading Richmond to an 8-2 record at the time, but recovered and played all games in 2017, his best statistical season.[1] During his collegiate career, he threw for a school-record 10,465 yards and 73 touchdowns.[4] Lauletta was invited to play in the 2018 Senior Bowl, in which he threw for 198 yards and three touchdowns and was named the game's MVP.[5]

New York Giants

Lauletta was selected by the New York Giants in the fourth round (108th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft. The pick used to acquire him was traded from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for Jason Pierre-Paul.[9]

On October 30, 2018, Lauletta was arrested in Weehawken, New Jersey, after being pulled over in his Jaguar on the way to Giants team practice. He was charged with eluding police, a third-degree crime; obstructing administration of law and resisting arrest, motor vehicle charges for reckless driving, disregarding an officer's directions, an improper turn in a marked traffic lane and failure to remain in a marked lane. Lauletta had previously been charged with reckless driving in Fairfax County, Virginia, in 2017 and found guilty of failure to obey a highway sign.[10][11]

Lauletta made his first NFL appearance on December 9 in relief of Eli Manning in a 40-16 victory against the Washington Redskins. He threw five incompletions and threw an interception to Mason Foster in the fourth quarter and a passer rating of 0.0.[12] He appeared in one other game, Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys as a blocker, in the 2018 season.[13]

Lauletta was waived during final roster cuts on August 31, 2019.[14]

Philadelphia Eagles

Lauletta signed with the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad on September 1, 2019.[15]
