Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is in OTA’s without his bulky left knee brace.
But he is also without his pal and trusty back-up Nick Foles for the first time since his rookie season in 2016:
“I just miss his personality,” Wentz told the Inky.
“He’s so laid back, he’s so relaxed, and I’m kind of wired differently – I’m Type A, ‘go, go, go.’ …It was a good balance for me to see him and see his attitude. And I also miss all the coffee he made us. He was a good barista.”
Foles signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this offseason after an incredibly odd and fun two-year ride with the Eagles in his second stint with the franchise.
Of course, Foles was originally drafted by Philly back in 2012 and spent the first three seasons of his NFL career with the club before joining the St. Louis Rams in 2015.
Then, after a miserable season with the Rams, Foles landed with the Kansas City Chiefs for one year before ending up back with the Eagles in 2017.
Late that season, Wentz, who was having an MVP-caliber campaign, tore his ACL, which thrust Foles into the starting role. Foles then went on to lead the Eagles to their first Super Bowl championship in an incredible run, which led many to believe that Foles should be the starter.
Foles then relieved Wentz again late last season due to a back injury, but Philly was ultimately eliminated by the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
