COVID-19 has prevented the Philadelphia Eagles from having formal OTA and minicamp practices but it hasn’t stopped players from working out in groups on their own.
We previously heard of Fletcher Cox hosting Eagles defensive line workouts at his ranch in Texas. Now we have evidence of Carson Wentz working out with some teammates in Houston ... via Jalen Reagor’s Instagram story:
Yep, that sure looks like the Eagles’ franchise quarterback. Wentz previously held a passing camp in Houston last year during the vacation gap between minicamp and training camp.
Reagor also showed a glimpse of 2019 second-round pick JJ Arcega-Whiteside:
I can’t say I know with 100% certainty who the following two dudes are — I’m assuming they’re Eagles players — but they’re there as well:
I think that might be Corey Clement and Greg Ward? The latter is from Texas and played college football at Houston, so it’d hardly be a surprise to see him there.
In any case, it’s good to see Wentz is getting some reps in with his pass catchers. It goes without saying that the Eagles’ 2020 receiving corps needs to help Wentz much more than they did in 2019.
