What’s Jackson’s relationship with Carson Wentz?
It’s always an important part of the dynamic of any offense. What’s the relationship between the signal-caller and his weapons? There have been rumblings that Philly’s intention is to make the Eagles locker room Carson Wentz‘s locker room, and in order to do that, there may be some desire to ignore available wide receivers who are veterans in favor of young guys who would have to come in and would have to look at QB1 for leadership.
Still, even with all of that being said, at the time of this story being published, two veterans, Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson are on the roster.
We’ve heard for months about what some believe Jeffery’s feelings are toward Wentz, and the truth is no one knows the real answer. Jackson’s feelings on the franchise signal-caller don’t come up much. What are they? What’s Jackson’s relationship with Wentz? Here’s the answer, straight from the source.
"He puts a lot of hard work into his craft and what he’s able to do on the field. He’s made some crazy throws, prolonged a lot of big plays. One thing I will say about him is he’s a competitor. He’s a fierce competitior that’s out of this world. I missed time out there playing with him. He was trying to do everything that he could with the weapons he had (to) play at a high level, so I look forward to getting back out there, working out with him, training with him, building with him, and hopefully, we’ll have a long season together next year. Our fight is to win another Super Bowl for Philadelphia"
Okay, it sounds like everything is kosher there. Let’s move on.
