Exchanging disappointed star quarterback Carson Wentz may end one Eagles quarterback contention — and start another.
Philadelphia isn’t focused on giving over the beginning position to Jalen Hurts, as recently accepted, and could seek exchange for a quarterback or draft another in the 2021 NFL Draft, as indicated by Adam Schefter.
“I don’t think they’re just set at the quarterback position,” Schefter said Wednesday on “The John Kincade Show” on 97.5 The Fanatic.
The Eagles have been attempting to discover an exchange accomplice for Wentz — and his gooney bird of a $128 million agreement — for quite a long time, and it’s normal either the Colts or Bears will procure the previous MVP competitor.
The 28-year-old Wentz apparently mentioned an exchange after he was sidelined for helpless play in December.
During his four beginnings instead of Wentz, Hurts, a second-round draft pick in a year ago’s draft, showed streaks on the ground and through the air, and appeared to be headed to winning the beginning position the following fall.
In any case, at that point the Eagles terminated lead trainer Doug Pederson and employed Nick Sirianni, who might need to acquire his own quarterback.
The Eagles probably would have to exchange up — as they did when the picked Wentz second generally speaking in 2016 — from the 6th pick to choose one of the top quarterback possibilities, Ohio State’s Justin Fields or BYU’s Zach Wilson.
Fields and Wilson are viewed as preferred possibilities over Hurts was the previous spring.
Another alternative would exchange Wentz to Chicago for Nick Foles and draft picks.
Such a move might be invited by Eagles fans. Foles mitigated a harmed Wentz during the 2017 season and drove Philadelphia to its first Super Bowl title.
