So, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz apparently isn’t satisfied being the Birds signal-caller:
He is pulling the strings on personnel too!
“Yeah, I love [Jason] Kelce. I can’t say enough about him,” Wentz said yesterday about the center on 94WIP. “He did a great job physically, but mentally he was just great for me to really bounce ideas off of. Him and I together were calling the protections and getting things dialed in. He was a really good guy for me to have, especially year one.”
Second-year offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo would be Kelce’s replacement if the team does decide to move on from the veteran. The Eagles would save $3.8 million if they cut Kelce, but they would also have to pay $2.4 million in dead money.
Seumalo was selected in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of Oregon State. The rookie proved to be versatile in his first year, filling in at both guard and tackle at times during the season.
