Eagles Notes: Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Dallas Goedert


Carson Wentz

Eagles HC Doug Pederson tells Peter King of NBC that he “can’t say” if QB Carson Wentz (ACL) will be ready Week 1.

“I can’t say. I don’t know now,” Pederson said. “I can tell you it’s not going to be a Doug Pederson decision. It will be a doctors’ decision. Carson will have to be 100 percent before he takes the field. I am going to rely totally on my medical staff.”

Nick Foles

Eagles QB Nick Foles tells Peter King of NBC that he would love to play the remainder of his career in Philadelphia but he’s looking forward to being a free agent and getting the opportunity to decide what’s best for him.

“I’m very happy where I’m at,’’ Foles said. “Sometimes, if some team would offer two ones, it might not have been the best fit for me. I would love to enjoy my year in Philly, be a free agent next year—and I know I would love to play my entire career in Philly—but there’s something about being a free agent where you can choose where you want to go and the people you want to play for. The great thing about not being traded and being a free agent is you have a choice.’’

Dallas Goedert

Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com previews the Eagles’ tight end position entering training camp.

  • Kempski mentions that second-round TE Dallas Goedert will give the Eagles’ offense the flexibility to continue to use two-tight end sets this season.
  • Kempski adds that did not see Goedert drop a single pass in the offseason practices open to the media and his route running didn’t resemble a rookie coming out of Division 1-AA.
  • As for his role in 2018, Kempski believes Goedert will be the No. 2 tight end from Day 1 and will have a “great chance” to put up better numbers than Trey Burton.
