Eagles GM: Wentz trade not being discussed

Mum was quite literally the word from coach Doug Pederson on rumors the Philadelphia Eagles are ready to trade quarterback Carson Wentz.In an end-of-season press conference via Zoom on Monday, Pederson’s audio trailed off and his reply to the question about his reportedly fractured relationship was inaudible.The joint presser also included general manager Howie Roseman, Pederson’s boss, who jumped in to respond.”That is not anything we’re talking about right now,” Roseman said. “When you have players like that, they’re like fingers on your hand. You can’t imagine that they’re not part of you, that they’re not here. That’s how we feel about Carson.”ESPN reported an offseason trade was likely because of what Wentz felt was a “fractured beyond repair” relationship with Pederson. Pederson made the decision in December to bench Wentz in favor of rookie second-round pick Jalen Hurts.In the regular-season finale Sunday night against Washington, the Eagles used Nate Sudfeld as the backup to Hurts.When Pederson’s microphone recovered on Monday, the coach seemed to indicate he wants to smooth any rough spots that emerged with Wentz.”The relationship is good, it’s fine. It’s something we’re going to continue to build upon. I know Carson is disappointed,” Pederson said.Whether the market will deem Wentz damaged goods is open for debate. He turned in a poor statistical season by his own standards.
