Carson Wentz traveled down to Houston the other day to go watch the Super Bowl in person. Apparently two great quarterbacks competing on the biggest stage in the sport he loves is a big pull for Wentz. Who would’ve guessed? (Me.)
While down there, he made an appearance Thursday morning on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football morning show, where he threw footballs at blown-up cardboard cut-outs of reporter Peter Schrager’s head. It was pretty funny.
(Unfortunately, Snappy TV doesn’t support embeds on Vox’s channels yet, but you can go watch the video right here.)
Afterwards, some Eagles reporters had a chance to catch up with Wentz, who said those four passes he threw this morning marked the first time he’s thrown a football since the Eagles’ season-ending win over the Cowboys on New Year’s Day. Here’s a little Tweetcap of the no-longer-a-rookie’s comments:
Carson Wentz said he still hasn't thrown a football since season's end (except for 2 of 4 passing he had on the set of GMF this morning).— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) February 2, 2017
Wentz says that the plan is for Jordan Matthews, Zach Ertz and Co. to get together around OTAs. Matthews 'really' wants to workout in Fargo.— Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardo975) February 2, 2017
Carson Wentz said he's "excited'' that Eagles want his input in personnel matters. "I can't thank them enough for having that trust in me.''— Paul Domowitch (@pdomo) February 2, 2017
Wentz said one of his top priorities this offseason is not learning the playbook, but "learning my guys more.''— Paul Domowitch (@pdomo) February 2, 2017
