Carson Wentz has been heavily criticized by several former NFLers following a report that the recently stated the recently demoted Eagles quarterback would want out of Philadelphia if he continues to back up Jalen Hurts.
Former Giants running back Tiki Barber was among them.
“Carson Wentz is being perhaps the worst teammate you could possibly be – ever,” Barber said Monday on CBS Sports Radio’s “Tiki and Tierney.” “Here’s the problem: there is a narrative around Carson Wentz that as good as he is or potentially could be, he’s just never been able to be the man. It puts the Eagles in an utterly impossible position.”
After starting the first 13 games of the season, Wentz was demoted in favor of Hurts ahead of the Eagles’ Week 14 win over the Saints. He has been benched since the third quarter of Philadelphia’s Week 13 game against the Packers, in which Green Bay took a 30-16 win.
At the time of his benching, the 27-year-old led the league in interceptions thrown (15) and sacks taken (50).
