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.
