Carson Wentz Opens Up About What Went Wrong in Philadelphia


Carson Wentz joined The Pat McAfee Show detailing some of the trials and tribulations of his tumultuous last season in Philadelphia, as a guy who was once the leading candidate for MVP turned in the worst statistical season of any player in 2020.

After being named a second-team All-Pro in 2017 during a season in which he likely would have won the MVP if not for blowing out his knee in Week 14 of that same year, Wentz would fail to make a Pro Bowl ever again and went just 17-21-1 as a starter during a period in which the Eagles figured he would be emerging as one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

Going into the 2019 season Wentz would sign a four-year, $128 million contract, but less than a year and a half later become a backup quarterback to a rookie Jalen Hurts.

In February 2021, just three years after the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory, Wentz was traded to the Colts for a 2021 third-round pick, and a conditional first-round pick in 2022 should Wentz play in a certain number of snaps.
