Let it be known, the Philadelphia Eagles want their quarterback to be happy.
In a radio interview on 94.1 WIP on Monday, Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas discussed how they will be making decisions in regards to moves made in the offseason. The Eagles made a huge move ahead of the draft last year when they made a deal with the Browns for the second overall pick in order to select quarterback Carson Wentz. Unfortunately that move did not sit well with then-quarterback Sam Bradford, whose agent Tom Condon said after the deal that “” if the Eagles let Bradford know what was going on.
Bradford then subsequently demanded a trade, and was dealt to the Minnesota Vikings.
The Eagles are clearly ready to build around Wentz, and are looking for his input in potential moves made to do exactly that. The team also plans to give Wentz as much input as possible when looking into his future receiving corps.
“The way the league rules are, you’d love to be able to bring him down and throw to these guys,” Roseman said. “That would be unbelievable. It just doesn’t work that way. But from our perspective, we want to make sure that he’s on board with some of these things, and he’s looking at some … probably more in free agency than in the draft, because it’s hard for him to get caught up on the draft prospects.”
Wentz definitely deserves an upgrade at receiver, as inconsistency at the position damaged the Eagles chances this season. His input will only help with that.
