Eagles coach Doug Pederson just finished his last Monday morning phone interview on 94WIP.
“Right now, are you envisioning a competition for the starting [quarterback] job at training camp?”
That is the final question Angelo Cataldi asked Pederson.
“Right now, I just can’t wait to get off of this phone call,” Pederson joked.
“I think you know me enough to know that I’m not in a position to say or do that right now,” he continued, in seriousness. “We have a lot of things we have to evaluate moving forward. I know this, I still have a lot of confidence and trust in Carson Wentz. He and I are going to get things fixed. That’s all I say.”
According a report from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the relationship between Pederson and Wentz is “fractured beyond repair,” and Wentz is seeking a trade.
“His relationship with the Eagles is all-but fractured — in fact, it is fractured,” Mortensen said. “Wentz is expected to ask the Eagles for a trade. He’ll help facilitate a trade. The reaction of Jeffrey Lurie the owner will be vital to this one, but right now, Wentz clearly wants out of Philadelphia and a fresh start somewhere else. That will be a big story in the offseason.”
