Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz rookie season was up and down, which is typical for a first year player. With his rookie season behind him, many are wondering if Wentz can take that next step that would ultimately get the Eagles into the playoffs. One of Wentz’s teammate is very excited about what he brings to the table and made a bold statement on Tuesday about him. Linebacker Jordan Hicks believes that Wentz can be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
“Absolutely. I think Carson can be one of the best quarterbacks in this league,” Hicks said regarding Wentz’s ability. “You know, I think the way to build around him is to put all those weapons with him and let them do their thing.”
“Carson is a great quarterback, Hicks said. “He’s got everything you need to be a great quarterback. I’m excited to see what this offense can do.”
I think Wentz’s number would be a lot better if some of his wide receivers wouldn’t have dropped so many balls. But it is obvious that the Eagles are putting weapons around Wentz, so it will be interesting to see how he does this season.
