Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles

As of recently, Carson Wentz has fallen out of favor for the Eagles organization. He now has been benched for the season in favor of rookie second-round pick Jalen Hurts. Wentz looked horrible this season which led to his benching, but prior to that, he looked like a future great quarterback.

The former first-round pick had an MVP caliber season in only his second season before tearing his ACL and missing the season. Foles then led their team to a Super Bowl victory. Wentz has looked extremely sharp every season since then while getting no weapons to consistently throw the ball to. Wentz has never had a wide receiver reach 1,000 receiving yards as they continuously cannot stay healthy.

Wentz is now likely available though after struggling behind this horrible offensive line with virtually no weapons this year. He quite obviously can’t do it all and has suffered because of it. This will likely put him on the trade block this offseason as the Eagles will likely hit the reset button at quarterback hoping Hurts pans out.

The main issue with Wentz is his high price tag and his trade value. According to Charles Robinson with Yahoo, he wrote that Wentz’s trade value would be very low from a fourth-round pick to a seventh-round pick thanks to his high price tag. The Eagles would eat a lot of his contract, but he still would cost the Bears quite a bit.

His fit for a team described the Chicago Bears perfectly as he said a team that would fit Wentz would be a team with a head coach and general manager that is looking to win next season but is currently facing lackluster quarterback options.

Next. Does Mitch Trubisky deserve a new contract?. dark

Final Thoughts:

This isn’t to say the Bears should trade for any of these quarterbacks, but the Bears should keep their options open. If the Bears are starting Week 1 of 2021 with Foles under center, they will be in a lot of trouble.
