EAGLES QB CONTROVERSY? ‘I THINK IT’S DEFINITELY OVERBLOWN!

By Peter Gleason

The Eagles don’t start training camp for 37 days — July 28 at NovaCare — so we are left to read the tea leaves about what’s going on.

And yesterday lineman Stefen Wisniewski helped.

He was on SiriusXM NFL radio yesterday to discuss the Eagles’ quarterback situation and how his teammates feel about Doug Pederson compared to Chip Kelly, and he said the tension Sam Bradford created by demanding a trade has since dissipated.

“I think it’s definitely blown over from the viewpoint of the other players — I think from the coaches as well,” the offensive lineman said. “(Bradford) seems to be the No. 1 quarterback. Now, is that set in stone? I don’t know for sure, but it certainly seems to be that way right now. And he’s looked good through OTAs and minicamps.”

The free-agent signing added that while he didn’t play under Kelly, his teammates are “very excited” about Pederson and the coaching change. He also raved about Carson Wentz.

“It’s definitely been a short time so far, but I’ve seen him make a lot of good throws,” Wisniewski said. “His athleticism is very impressive and just kind of the way he’s carried himself’s been good. He seems like he’s a smart kid. He’s grasping the offense well. He seems like a hard-working kid, so those are all good signs, what you want to see early on from a younger quarterback.”
