Eagles training camp opens on July 24 with the first drill on July 27, and here’s a look at their quarterbacks:
Starter: Carson Wentz
Backups: Nick Foles, Matt McGloin
After the Birds blew out Pittsburgh 34-3 in Week 3 last season, it seemed like everyone was aboard the Wentz Wagon.
At that point the Eagles were 3-0, and Wentz had thrown five touchdowns and no picks.
But over the next 14 weeks, he threw just 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions as the Eagles finished 7-9. He showed some impressive signs as a rookie, but until he shows it more consistently in 2017, we’ll have to keep a lid on the hype.
This offseason the Eagles added Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery to bolster the receiving corps and added Foles as an experienced backup. All three of those moves should help Wentz in his sophomore campaign.
