‘CARSON AND I WEREN’T ON SUCH BAD TERMS,’ DOUG SAYS, ALL EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY!

Former Eagles coach Doug Pederson on John Clark’s podcast:

The only thing I will say, and I understand where Carson’s coming from, because it’s difficult; when you’re the starter and things like this happen and you basically get benched.

“Our season wasn’t going the way we wanted it to go and it’s difficult. It’s difficult for any player to go through that.

“I did it with Nelson Agholor my first year, obviously a different position and all that, but you’ve got to have the conversations, and you’ve got to have the open-door policy, and you’ve got to communicate, and I felt like we did that.

“I do believe that there’s a little misnomer out there where Carson and I were on such bad terms, and I’ve never felt that way.

“I’ve always felt like I was going to do the right thing for the Philadelphia Eagles, and yet I understand what he was feeling and what he was going through. I know there was frustration there. I still have a lot of respect (for Carson), and we drafted him five years ago to be the guy and I’m excited to see what he does with the Colts now. And he has a fresh start, too. I think that’s something that players go through in their careers. They get opportunities to go other places through free agency or trades. You get cut one place, you get picked up another. It’s another opportunity, and I know that’s what he’s looking forward to and I’m excited to watch his career moving forward.”
