Report: Eagles will hold private workout with Wentz, too

After conducting a private workout for Cal quarterback Jared Goff to start the week, the Eagles are scheduled to hold another for North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz on Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Caplan reported.

Goff and Wentz are generally considered the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft. That the Eagles are showing interest after making significant offseason investments into quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel is interesting.

Maybe the Eagles just want to gather information while making teams with early quarterback interest sweat a little. Or, maybe these workouts will help convince the Eagles and new head coach Doug Pederson — a former NFL quarterback himself — that they have to take either Goff or Wentz.

The Eagles hold the No. 8 pick in the first round after swapping first-round picks with the Dolphins. The Browns at No. 2 and the 49ers at No. 7 are seen as potential quarterback landing spots.

Four weeks out, there’s still a lot of guessing involved with this year’s draft. Pegging the Eagles as another potential quarterback destination makes things even tougher to predict.

    Doug doesn’t make any decisions–it’s all Howie’s show now

    I’m still wondering what the heck the Dolphins were thinking.

    PS

    If they think Mrs. Grimes was such a pain, they don’t understand the town and city that is Miami. I’d rather have Mr. Grimes and the 8th pick.

    The Eagles could trade Bradford along with their #8 pick for Cleveland’s #2 pick.

    No one is talking about the Chargers as a potential QB landing spot at #3. Could they take a QB as well, with Rivers getting up there in age and no clear replacement behind him?

    After viewing both quarterbacks, the Eagles are investigating the feasibility of attaching Goff’s head to Wentz’s body.

    I don’t think the QB class this year is favorable enough for that, especially not with the #3 overall pick and loads of defensive talent available. If anything, I think it’s more likely they’ll take a project QB in the 3rd or 4th round like New Orleans and New York did with Grayson and Petty.

    It would be great to bring in Wentz and be able to let him sit for a year or two like Rogers did.

    It must be embarrassing for eagles fans knowing that even lower tier teams like the Bucs, Saints and Seattle have Lombardi’s.

    This is probably as mis-direct by Howie or he just needs to give Doug something to do in March. Can’t wait to see what loser Howie picks this year.

    Wasting Wentz’s time. Browns need a QB at number 2, Chargers need a QB too, Rivers is old. Don’t rule out America’s Team aka The 5 time Superbowl Champions, The Dallas Cowboys. 49ers are screaming for QB help. Should of kept Nick Foles and maybe Chip would still be in Philly. Don’t expect to cut a deal for the first overall. Titans need to protect Mariota. Eagles are screwed. Wentz and Goff won’t be there.

    There’s nothing significant about Bradfords 2 year deal that the Eagles can get out of after 1 year

  14. mikelitoris1 says: Mar 30, 2016 1:05 AM

    Wentz would only be a trade chip used to acquire Marcus Mariota, who Doug Pederson coached at Oregon.

  15. trollaikman8 says: Mar 30, 2016 1:42 AM

    Implying the Browns would give Philthy the 2nd pick for the honor of taking on limp Bradford and his contract. Keep being delusional.

    They could be overlooking a very good prospect in Chris Hackenberg. Cost less and go lower, but well worth it …

    It’s fine if either fall to #8. Just don’t trade up for them. Plenty of talent on the board.
