While refuting details in a story published last month that was critical of him, Carson Wentz acknowledged that he could have been a better teammate.
"I know who I am, first of all. I know how I carry myself. I know I'm not perfect. I know I have flaws," the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback said.
"So I'm not going to sit here and say it was inaccurate and completely made up. I'm not going to do that. But at the end of the day, I will say our locker room is really close. If there were guys that had issues, in hindsight, I wish we could have just talked about them. But, again, I don't know how that all happened and everything with that."
Wentz was described as "egotistical," "selfish," and "uncompromising" in the story, which cited more than a half-dozen players and other sources.
Wentz said he was caught off guard by the report.
"It kind of came out of nowhere," he said. "I was literally eating breakfast with my wife and [a member of the Eagles media relations staff] texted me. Literally, we do, like, quiet time in the morning. We eat breakfast and then I go sit on the couch. So I'm about to go read my Bible and then I get that text and now I'm reading this."
