Doug Pederson reiterated that the Philadelphia Eagles are fully committed to Carson Wentz as their quarterback of the future. Wentz is hurt for the second straight season and Nick Foles again has played well in place of him.
“I think you have to continue to talk,” Pederson said during his press conference. “I don’t think you have to necessarily always go out of your way and make sure that [you communicate that to him]. He understands. He knows the situation he’s in. He’s trying to get healthy. But at the same time, I want him to understand that, hey, he’s our guy. He’s the guy we drafted and moving forward, he’s our quarterback. I don’t have to sit there and keep encouraging; he knows that. But we do have conversation, and I try to encourage him the best I can.”
Foles will be a free agent this offseason.
