For the second week in a row, a member of the Philadelphia Eagles has been named NFLPA Community of the Week. Last week it was defensive end Chris Long. This week it’s starting quarterback Carson Wentz.
Wentz donated $120,000 to Canine Partners for Life, which helps provide service dogs to those in need. Awesome.
As an NFLPA Community MVP award winner, Wentz is also eligible for the annual Byron “Whizzer” White (BWW) Award, which is the highest honor that the NFLPA can bestow upon a player. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins received the BWW Award in 2017.
Wentz is one of four players to win the NFLPA Community MVP award so far this season. J.J. Watt was honored before the season started, Colin Kaepernick took home the award in Week 1, and Long was named last week’s winner.
It’s cool that the Eagles have so many players on the team who are doing great work off the field in addition to their contributions on the field. It makes the team even easier to root for.
