So it looks like Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffery get along after all.
The interesting offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles continues on. At this point, we’ve come to the realization that the critical hit piece that came out about Carson Wentz a month ago was just an overly biased article written in a negative tone. Nothing less, nothing more. Wentz admitted to having some flaws, as humans tend to have. And many of Wentz’s teammates came to his defense to let everybody know that what is being put out there about QB1 is not true.
However, the people outside of the Eagles locker room are the ones who tend to create the narrative moving forward. In a time where the fan base is split between wanting Nick Foles or Carson Wentz at quarterback, everybody is going to slant their narrative in favor of whatever quarterback they truly wish to have under center.
So automatically, Wentz became a villain over the last month or so in the eyes of many. And for whatever reason, many fans speculated that one of the ‘highly-respected’ veterans who spoke out behind the scenes against Wentz was Alshon Jeffery. For the record, the assumption that Jeffery spoke out against Wentz is just social media rumors that were started up by the fans. But since Jeffery was one of the players who didn’t take to Twitter to defend Wentz, many assumed that it had to be true that Jeffery is not too fond of the franchise quarterback.
Well, social media lied to us all
As it turns out, Wentz and Jeffery are friends. Wait, so you mean to tell me that just because a player didn’t tweet in defense of his quarterback, he automatically doesn’t have his back? Who would’ve thought? Listen, social media shouldn’t be taken that seriously. Especially when it comes to famous athletes. Just because Alshon doesn’t tweet to Wentz about the situation, doesn’t mean that he’s the one who spoke about his issues to a reporter behind the scenes.
Who’s to say that Jeffery didn’t send Wentz a personal message after that hit piece came out, and the public just doesn’t know about it? Twitter doesn’t put everybody’s business out there unless somebody wants to do that.
In Alshon’s case, he doesn’t really strike anybody as a ‘sub-tweet’ type of guy. So we wouldn’t necessarily expect him to think he needs to hop on Twitter to defend Wentz either. Hopefully, Wentz and Jeffery showing face at the Sixers game put all of these rumors to rest. And if not, just remember, one of the main reasons why Jeffery joined the Eagles was because of Carson Wentz.
