Carson Wentz is no longer the starting quarterback in Philadelphia.
The Eagles started rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts in a win over the New Orleans Saints last weekend. Hurts is starting against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon.
While it remains to be seen what will happen moving forward, it’s fair to wonder if Wentz has played his last games in Philadelphia.
Wentz was once an MVP-caliber quarterback for the Eagles. He received a mammoth contract extension and was viewed as the foundation of the franchise. But things have gone downhill fast in 2020.
The former No. 2 overall NFL Draft pick is still young, but he reportedly has “no interest” in sticking around in Philly unless he’s the starter.
Although the Eagles’ quarterback situation remains fluid with three games left this season, Wentz is not pleased with the way events have unfolded in the organization, according to sources.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson has not said whether the quarterback switch is permanent — only going so far as to announce Hurts as the starter for Sunday — but player and team sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen last weekend that Hurts will remain the starter this season.
While Wentz hasn’t played well this season, it’s fair for him to be upset with the organization.
If he does get traded, two teams make the most sense.
