Carson Wentz still wants out — and teams are calling

There’s still no trade in place, but the Carson Wentz saga continues as the Eagles look to move on from the former No. 2 overall pick.

Chris Simms, who played quarterback in the NFL and is now an NBC Sports analyst, added more fuel to the fire with a tweet on Tuesday.

“Carson Wentz needs out of Philly,” Simms wrote. “It’s over for him there. After one bad throw or drive the fan base and city will sour on him. Needs a fresh start.”

It seemed like a trade was imminent over the weekend, but reports have filtered out that the Eagles have seen their market shrink for the quarterback. The Eagles originally wanted a haul similar to what the Lions got for Matthew Stafford – the Rams gave two first-round picks to Detroit for the QB. But both the Bears and Colts, originally linked to Wentz, have “grown impatient” with the Eagles and believe the team has overvalued him, according to NJ.com.

It remains to be seen whether the Eagles will cave to the pressure and move him for less, but one thing is for certain – Wentz needs a fresh start.
