In his latest comments, it sure feels like Carson Wentz isn’t happy with the way things ended between him and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Earlier this offseason, the Carson Wentz marriage with the Philadelphia Eagles finally came to an end. After a promising start to his career with the Eagles, Wentz never lived up to his first-round hype with the NFC East squad.
Now, he’s ready for a fresh start with the Indianapolis Colts to try and get his pro career back on the right foot. In his latest comments, however, it sure seems like the Eagles are still on his mind, but not in a positive manner.
Carson Wentz clearly is happy to be out of Philadelphia and with the Colts
From the tweet above, it really does feel like Wentz is praising his new team, while taking a subtle shot at the Philly front office as well. Last season was a nightmare for the young signal-caller, as he ended up throwing for only 2,620 yards, 16 touchdowns and a disappointing 15 interceptions.
He simply turned the ball over too much, which had the Eagles supporters calling for his job throughout the season. Late in the campaign, former head coach Doug Pederson had no choice but to give rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts a shot at running the offense.
With Hurts behind center, he really made the Philadelphia offense much more electric and more exciting to watch. Hurts looks set to lead the Eagles offense come Week 1 in September, while Wentz will be the guy for the Colts to open the campaign too.
Despite has massive struggles with the Eagles, Wentz now has the chance to prove all of his haters wrong and put on a show in the AFC South. Only time will tell if he’ll make countless people eat their words.
