Philadelphia Eagles: Carson Wentz Lives Up to His New Contract
There’s a great deal of pressure on Wentz after getting a guaranteed $107 million on his new deal. One could actually argue that he’s done little to deserve such a deal with Nick Foles finishing the season as Philadelphia’s quarterback the last two years. Wentz was also just 5-6 as a starter last season.
However, Wentz wasn’t exactly in the best position to succeed last year coming off the serious knee injury that ended his 2017 season. With more time to recover and get his body right, look for Wentz to pick up where he left off in 2017 when he looked like the league’s MVP before getting hurt.
