Carson Wentz, Doug Pederson Reportedly Didn’t Speak To Each Other For Over Two Months During 2020 Season
You may have thought things were bad with Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles last season, but they were much worse than previously thought.
Carson Wentz and head coach Doug Pederson reportedly didn’t talk for an extended period of time during the latter stages of the 2020 NFL season.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter spoke on it during an appearance Friday on 97.5 The Fanatic.
“There are a lot of things that went wrong,” Schefter said. “We have the team drafting Jalen Hurts. We have Carson feeling jilted by that. We have the team trying to reassure him. We have Carson not getting past that. We have Carson struggling. We have Carson and Doug not talking for weeks on end during the season, where the head coach and quarterback are not talking for eight, nine, 10 weeks.”
As we saw, Wentz would find himself getting benched during a game and never get his starting job back as he demanded a trade before the season ended.
He would get his wish this week when the Eagles sent him to the Colts for several draft picks.
