New report claims Carson Wentz wants to stay with Eagles
Last week was one of the Sunday Splash! Reports came from the idea that the Eagles still believe in quarterback Carson Wentz. This week is one of the Sunday Splash! Reports (by the same reporter) arose from the suggestion that if Wentz isn't the starter, he wants to get out of Philadelphia.
Associated Press' Rob Maaddi denies the latter, tweeting: “Carson Wentz is invested in Philadelphia, South Jersey communities. It's not just about him. It's about family, friends, his AO1 Foundation, his Thy Kingdom Crumb Food Truck, friendships and relationships. I was told he didn't want to get out of Philly and he didn't tell anyone. "
The easiest way to reconcile this is to say that Wentz didn't tell anyone, but his agents did. And that's probably the best way to harmonize the competing reports.
If the Eagles are ultimately trying to move Wentz, there is value in blowing up the team's leverage and forcing his hand. If Wentz is traded one way or another, it is in his best interests to do everything possible to ensure the new team gives up as little as possible to get him so that he has more help in the form of players and draft picks with his next franchise.
