Eagles' Carson Wentz: Receives commitment through 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles exercised the fifth-year option on Wentz's (back) contract, Chris McPherson of the team's official site reports.

Despite tending to injuries in both of the past two seasons, Wentz has reached the 3,000-yard threshold through the air in all three of his campaigns. His fearless nature forced him from the field in 2017 due to a torn ACL and last year as a result of a stress fracture in his back. Fortunately for Wentz, the Eagles allowed Super Bowl LII MVP Nick Foles to walk in free agency this offseason and further committed to the former by locking him into the fifth and final year of his rookie contract. Wentz continues to recover from the back injury but is hopeful he'll be able to participate in OTAs in May.

Eagles' Carson Wentz: Still recovering from fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wentz (back) is still working his way back to health and hopes to be ready for OTAs in May, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Wentz avoided surgery after missing the final five games (including playoffs) of the 2018 campaign, but it's nonetheless been a slow process to recover from a stress fracture in his back. He's present Monday for the start of the Eagles' voluntary offseason program, with his rehab presumably allowing for some degree of strength and conditioning work. The 26-year-old quarterback is entering the fourth and final season of his rookie contract, though it's only a matter of time before the Eagles exercise the fifth-year option. General manager Howie Roseman has already acknowledged the possibility of Wentz receiving a contract extension this spring or summer. Philadelphia upgraded his supporting cast during the offseason with the additions of wide receiver DeSean Jackson (Achilles) and running back Jordan Howard.

Eagles' Carson Wentz: In consideration for extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM Howie Roseman said Monday that he wants to sign Wentz (back) to an extension, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports. "We have to be realistic about the fact that we have a quarterback we want to pay and we want to extend long term," Roseman relayed. "We want to have a team led by a franchise type of quarterback. We know that we have that in Carson."

Since the Eagles selected Wentz second overall in the 2016 draft, he became the face of the franchise, but his situation has a few things to sort out before putting pen to paper on a long-term deal. First and foremost, the team no doubt will exercise the fifth-year option on his rookie contract by May 2. Beyond that, Wentz has been going through rehabilitation after missing the final three regular-season games and subsequent playoff run due to a fractured back vertebra. Roseman wouldn't touch on Wentz's health, citing "HIPPA laws." However, Roseman added, "We are incredibly optimistic about where we are in that area [with injured players]." Once Wentz's health is revived, he won't have the specter of Nick Foles breathing down his neck and thus will be able to focus on leading the Eagles offense yet again.

Eagles' Carson Wentz: No update on timeline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles general manager Howie Roseman isn't ready to discuss a timeline for Wentz's return from a back injury, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Held out for the final three games of the regular season as well as two playoff contests, Wentz didn't end up needing surgery for the stress fracture in his back. A report in mid-January suggested he should be ready for the start of the offseason program in mid-April, while fellow quarterback Nick Foles is expected to find a new home before that time. Even if doesn't have full clearance for OTAs and minicamp, Wentz should be 100 percent before the start of training camp in late July.

Eagles' Carson Wentz: Seeking full health by April
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wentz (back) is expected to return to full health by the start of the Eagles' offseason program in April, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Once he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his back, Wentz was shut down for the final three games of the regular season, all of which were Eagles victories at the direction of his replacement Nick Foles. Foles proceeded to lead the team to a wild-card win in Chicago, but the magic wore out during a divisional-round loss at New Orleans. Afterward, coach Doug Pederson committed to Wentz as Philadelphia's starting quarterback moving forward, per Tim McManus of ESPN.com. While the QB situation remains somewhat murky due to Wentz's health and Foles' presence, the latter likely will be resolved before the new league year begins on March 13 as a result of fine print within his contract. Beyond that, the former expects to progress from his current place in a strengthening program to full participant in the team's offseason program.
