Carson Wentz declines to speak to media as 2020 season concludes


Zach Ertz spoke emotionally in a Monday morning Zoom meeting with the media, recognizing that his time with the Philadelphia Eagles may be over.

Carson Wentz's time with the Eagles may very well be over, but the quarterback declined to speak with the media Monday, the team's public relations department said.

Though the public would have certainly liked to hear how Wentz is feeling after a month's worth of watching someone other than him start at quarterback, neither he or the Eagles had much to gain by having him speak Monday.

While both Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman expressed confidence in Wentz moving forward Monday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Sunday that the relationship between Wentz and Pederson is "fractured beyond repair." At the very least, one would think the Eagles will consider trading Wentz this offseason, and exposing him to the media probably would do little to advance what little leverage they may have.

Despite not playing in the final month of the season - and being inactive in Week 17 - Wentz led the NFL with 15 interceptions in 2020, after throwing two just 14 in the two previous seasons combined. The Eagles went 3-8-1 with Wentz at the helm, and will have the No. 6 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
