lost his job as the starting quarterback to , a position Wentz held since he was the No. 2 overall pick five years ago. Since Wentz was removed from the Eagles' starting lineup in Week 13, the quarterback's character has been questioned -- along with his reaction to the benching -- adding speculation if Wentz will even be with the Eagles next season.Eagles head coach Doug Pederson that Wentz wants Michael Johnson Jersey out of Philadelphia if he's relegated to being a backup quarterback in 2021, defending his quarterback for how he's handled the Hurts situation. Wentz is a competitor by nature, doing his job to make sure the Eagles win on Sundays, and Pederson said he's not going to divide the team over his benching."That's one thing that Carson has not allowed that to happen and he's not going to let it happen," Pederson said to reporters Wednesday. "He's been a pro about it, and he's been very talkative in the meetings, asking the questions just like he had before, and you see him talking to Jalen Hurts during Ja'Marr Chase Jersey the week and during games."It's something that I really appreciate about Carson is how he's handled this. He doesn't want to be a distraction to the team, and he wants to help the team win. That's the bottom line. So Jonah Williams Jersey , we don't let these things really creep into our thinking and try to keep them out of the locker room, so it won't divide your team."Hurts has also heard the reports about Wentz, taking some advice from Alabama head coach Nick Saban on how to handle a situation like that.

With Cedric Peerman Jersey Wentz starting, the Eagles didn't score 20 points in a game since Michael Jordan Jersey Nov. 1 -- and one of those scores was a defensive touchdown.Wentz became one of the worst quarterbacks in football this year, putting his future with the Eagles in serious doubt. Whether the Eagles decide to choose Wentz or Hurts for 2021, the new starting quarterback can only control his own fate. "I just focus on what I need to focus on. Focus on winning," Hurts said. "Preparing. And just doing my job, coming in every day. And going to work. That's how I focus on everything."
