Id trade Wentz for whatever, just to get out of that contract. Ever since he got injured and it was Foles who took us to Super Bowl glory, Wentz has been cursed as an Eagle, not wanted by the fans, lost all faith in him etc
The way I look at it is what's the Hurts upside v what's the Wentz likelyhood of coming good, weighed it up several times & I go with Hurts everytime esp given the new coaching setup. Really it's a no brainer if you can get Wentz off the books before the start of the new league year.

Yep, its plain as day. Let some other team/HC try to fix Wentz, which could take 2-3 years. Not worth OUR financials to be that team, especially as Hurts certainly showed more life

We are not doing this again are we GG? We, really?

Shitposting on this thread sets me off just in case you hadn't noticed...team threads should be a sanctuary of sorts, just saying.

ESPN's Tim McManus reports the Eagles have "already received aggressive offers" for Carson Wentz.
The Eagles have been fielding trade calls for Wentz, with the Colts showing the most interest. It's not a surprise given Wentz's ties to Frank Reich, but Philly's asking price — they reportedly want "significant compensation" for Wentz — is going to make any deal difficult coming off a season where Wentz played like one of the worst quarterbacks in the league. The Eagles likely want a first-round pick to justify taking the $30 million dead cap hit to trade Wentz. Even with Doug Pederson fired, Wentz has made it clear he wants out of Philly.

So the Birds somehow get a 1st for Wentz, then package that up with this years 6th, 2022 1st & a player or 2 (lets say Hurts) & it's welcome to Philly Desean Watson!!

How the money could possibly work I have NFI but I'm allowed to dream, no?!

If Howie does get a first for him then he has done very well. Also likely means we are stuck with him for a lot longer

Now they are saying Doug wanted Wentz back as the starter next season while Howie has gone all in on Hurts. So I guess this is it for Howie, if Hurts is a bust he'd have to walk.
