According to Rob Maaddi, Eagles QB Carson Wentz plans to take some time away to think and is still hopeful his relationship with the team can be salvaged.

Maaddi adds Wentz hasn’t discussed his future with team officials yet, though that will come in time. He says Wentz’s relationship with the team is indeed strained and effort from both sides will be needed to sort it out. 

Mike Garafolo says the two sides are expected to begin discussing things this week, though with all the complicated factors it won’t take just one meeting. 

A report came out Sunday that Wentz’s relationship with the Eagles was fractured beyond repair and he was expected to request a trade this offseason. 

The Eagles have publicly and privately indicated they’re confident in and hope to keep Wentz in 2021. But Wentz was predictably upset about being benched for second-round QB Jalen Hurts.

If the two sides can’t salvage their relationship, then a trade might be the only resolution. Ian Rapoport reports if Wentz does become available, he would prefer to be traded to the Colts and reunited with HC Frank Reich above other destinations. 

Wentz, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Eagles back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $26.7 million rookie contract that included a $16.7 million signing bonus when the Eagles picked up his fifth-year option that would have cost them $22.78 million for the 2020 season. 

The Eagles then signed Wentz to a four-year, $128 million extension going into the 2019 season that included $107 million in guarantees. 

In 2020, Wentz has appeared in 12 games for the Eagles and completed 57.4 percent of his passes for 2,620 yards, 16 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He also rushed for 276 yards and five touchdowns.

We’ll have more on Wentz as the news is available.
