Wentz Takes Command Of Eagles Offense

Wentz Takes Command Of Eagles Offense

Something was different on Tuesday.

"The biggest thing I've seen is leadership", Pederson said. Just have to knock the rust off these next few days. "We just need to be where [Wentz] expects us to be".

"We had a good time with each other", Wentz said after Tuesday's Organized Team Activity (OTA) workout at the NovaCare Complex. Team offense vs. team defense drills, including all drills listed in Appendix G to this Agreement, are permitted, provided no live contact occurs.

"I think there's definitely a poise about him", said Matthews.

"It's been great with him", said Wentz of Jeffery.

At least now, thanks to OTAs this week, they'll have tape against the defense to look back at and use to get on the same page. However, if Wentz does not progress, those weapons are not going to be as successful. "No doubt about it". "But I can't help a year ago, the past is the past". You're putting in new plays, new routes, things are always changing. "I feel very comfortable with them at the same time, but we're still going to build that relationship". Just trying to get my bearings straight, I barely knew where the locker room was - a lot of things going on, it was pretty wild.

As the prime minister explained, the "possibility of a wider network" is behind Abedi's attack justified their decision. Neighbors recalled him as a tall, thin young man who often wore traditional Islamic dress and did not talk much.

"It's been great with him", Wentz said. The brace may still end up in the garbage, because Curry said that, while he played with it on last season, he won't be wearing it this season. That's the first thing that jumps out at me.

Look for scenes like that to be repeated as Wentz tries to build rapport with all his fancy new weaponry. While there were a couple glitches along the way, he got a taste of what his new wideouts bring to the table - particularly Jeffery. If the Eagles were to release Smith prior to the third day of camp, they would save $1,483,515.

Torrey Smith and Jordan Matthews joined him in the starting lineup, with Zach Ertz at tight end and LeGarrette Blount at running back. He has huge potential to take snaps away from Matthews in the slot with his speed and play making ability.

Normally, if the Eagles allow a player to enter the final year of their deal, it is a sign they don't see that player as a long-term member of the team. While Matthews remained an effective player and the real disappointments were Nelson Agholor and Dorial Green-Beckham, being the best of a bad lot doesn't necessarily garner much political capital.

"You guys have a job to do, I have a job to do, so there was no harm no foul", he said. These two guys have had production over a long period of time and want to come work during the voluntary part of the offseason. And for Wentz the object isn't to simply to have a career, it's also to win. So the Eagles' front office went out and inked Jeffery (1 year, upwards of $14 million) and Smith (3 years, $15 million) then drafted North Carolina's Mack Hollins and West Virginia's Shelton Gibson in the middle rounds. "But these guys also worked a little bit beyond the in-house rules, so to speak, here where they were able to work on their own, work together, and even before OTAs, even before the offseason started".
