  Eagles | Philly starts talks with Carson Wentz    Sat May 18, 07:50 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has started contract extension talks with the Eagles, but the two sides are not close to an agreement at this point.

Footballguys view: There's not a big hurry here. The Eagles have Wentz under contract through the 2020 season with the fifth-year option the 2016 first-round pick had picked up by the team. Wentz needs to stay healthy and that's about it. When healthy, the young quarterback has the upside to be one of the best in the game. If he plays well for a full season in 2019, Wentz's price is only going to go up.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz's optioned picked up    Mon Apr 29, 04:25 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's fifth-year option was exercised Monday, April 29.

Footballguys view: This puts Wentz on the board for around $22 million in 2020. We should see him extended by the team before that new league year begins. It all comes down to whether or not Wentz can stay healthy this season. Wentz has a ton of talent but hasn't played a full 16-game season since his rookie year in 2016.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz intends to be ready for OTAs    Mon Apr 15, 02:49 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) told reporters Monday, April 15, that while he feels good about his recovery, the stress fracture in his back is still not fully healed. He added his goal is to be ready for OTAs.

Footballguys view: Even if he is ready by OTAs, the Eagles need to take it easy with their franchise quarterback. They no longer has the luxury of having Nick Foles on the bench behind Wentz. That backup role is now Nate Sudfeld...and while we like Sudfeld's natural ability he is certainly unproven as a pro. Wentz should be eased into action this offseason with a plan to have him at full participation in training camp.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz could receive extension    Mon Mar 25, 08:48 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is a player the Eagles would like to sign to a contract extension at some point, according to general manager Howie Roseman.

Footballguys view: Wentz has not played a full season since 2016, so the team may want to see him do that in 2019 before making him one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league. The Eagles have Wentz under contract for two more seasons and the franchise tag after that if it comes to that. We could see an extension for him in the next year or so.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz expects to be ready in April    Mon Mar 4, 12:14 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) is expected to be healthy by the start of workouts in mid-April, sources close to the quarterback said Sunday, March 3.

Footballguys view: That gets him out there for OTAs and minicamp. With Nick Foles moving on (likely to the Jaguars), the team really needs Wentz to finally stay healthy for a full 16-game season.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz should be ready for workouts    Sun Jan 20, 02:00 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) is expected to be healthy enough to be a full participant when offseason workouts start in April, according to sources.

Footballguys view: With Nick Foles likely to be tagged and traded, Wentz is the clear cut guy for the Eagles...and for good reason. He just needs to stay healthy in order to produce at the expected level. Wentz hasn't played a full 16-game season since his rookie year in 2016.

  Eagles | Philly going forward with Carson Wentz    Tue Jan 15, 12:06 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) is the team's 'starting quarterback going forward ,' head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, Jan. 16, at the team's season-ending news conference.

Footballguys view: After Nick Foles led them to the playoffs in 2018, many wondered what the future held for Wentz. It looks like the Eagles are going with Wentz. He hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2016 but when healthy he has the skill to be one of the best in the league at his position. We'll see if the Eagles can trade Foles this offseason.

Footballguys view: Wentz is not going to be shut down for the year and it might be because of positive information about his injury...and the fact the Eagles are still in the playoff hunt.
