One of the lingering questions throughout the offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles was when rookie quarterback Carson Wentz was going to take the field during a "rebuilding" 2016 season.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson finally admitted Wentz wasn't going to play in 2016 in a conference call with media members of the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday morning.

If Bradford did go down, Chase Daniel would have played instead of Wentz. Obviously, the Eagles were smart to change their mind.
Philadelphia traded Bradford to Minnesota eight days before the season in a deal that worked out for both teams. Bradford has led the Vikings to a 5-0 start while completing 70.4 percent of his passes for 990 yards, six touchdowns, zero interceptions and a 109.8 passer rating.
Wentz has been just as impressive. Despite playing just 39 snaps in the preseason, Wentz has completed 65 percent of his passes for 1,186 yards, seven touchdowns, one interception with a quarterback rating of 99.9.
Clearly the trade has worked out for both teams. The Eagles and Vikings play each other Sunday.
