It sounds like Carson Wentz couldn’t get out of Philadelphia fast enough. Following news that the Eagles have traded the quarterback to the Indianapolis Colts, a new report suggests that the relationship between Wentz and Philadelphia was even worse than many realized.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter told “The John Kincade Show” on 97.5 The Fanatic that Wentz and Eagles head coach Doug Pederson went an estimated eight to 10 weeks without communicating during the 2020 NFL season. Wentz had no interest in staying in Philadelphia, according to Schefter, and his problems with the organization extended beyond Pederson.

Pederson benched Wentz for Jalen Hurts in Week 13 during Philadelphia’s loss against the Green Bay Packers. Wentz didn’t play for the rest of the year as Hurts took hold of the starting job.

Wentz was among the league’s worst starting quarterbacks. The 28-year-old had as many turnovers as touchdowns and a 72.8 passer rating. The Eagles finished in last place in the NFC East.

Both Pederson and Wentz are gone from the Eagles. Pederson was fired just three years after leading Philadelphia to its first-ever Super Bowl championship. Wentz was traded to Indianapolis Thursday in exchange for a 2021 third-round draft pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could become a first-rounder.

The Eagles were forced to take a $33.8 million dead cap hit for trading Wentz. Reports of the toxic relationship between the signal caller and the organization shed light on why Philadelphia was willing to make such a move.

It wasn’t long ago that it appeared Wentz would be the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the next decade.

Drafted second overall by Philadelphia in 2016, Wentz was an MVP candidate in his second NFL season until he tore his ACL. Wentz signed a four-year, $128 million contract with Philadelphia in June 2019 before leading the Eagles to its second NFC East title in three seasons.

Wentz’s contract expires after the 2024 season.
