So, Eagles thin-skinned quarterback Carson Wentz wants to be a starter and if he’s not he wants to be traded.
That’s what ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported yesterday, and he’s never wrong.
Of course, he was probably fed that morsel by Wentz’s agent, Ryan Tollner.
ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky thinks there is a lot of “built-up animosity” between Wentz and the Eagles, including a general feeling that the benched starting quarterback feels “betrayed.”
Naturally, Frank Reich’s name came up in the conversation as rumors of Wentz heading to the Indianapolis Colts continue to swirl.
“A lot of people think there’s a lot of built-up animosity between him and the organization in Philly,” Orlovsky said. “I think a lot of people think he misses Frank Reich as a human more than just a play-caller. I think a lot of people feel that Carson Wentz feels betrayed and the only person in the NFL that he trusts is Frank Reich.”
Orlovsky put the Colts “100-percent” at the top of his list of teams that might trade for Wentz in the offseason. He also put the San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions on it.
