Speaking of Carson Wentz and Nick Foles, they're still unemployed and awaiting their next NFL opportunity.

We know you're sick of hearing about them... well, some of you anyway. Whether fair or unfair however, Carson Wentz and Nick Foles' Eagles stories will be connected forever.

The former was supposed to be a long-time franchise player and the savior of a proud organization. The latter, had he played in Philly for his entire career, would probably have a Pro Football Hall of Fame argument.

Foles is the co-owner of the NFL's record for the most TD passes in a single game (seven) and the most consecutive pass completions in a game (25). He's also the only man that can say he led the Eagles to a Super Bowl win as a starter. Wentz is... Well... He's Carson Wentz. Both are still unemployed.

Carson Wentz, quarterback

Carson Wentz didn't just regress. He fell off a cliff. With his reputation in shambles and his ego finally shattered, he could do work as a backup QB... if he accepts that's his ceiling as a professional signal-caller.

Even now, it still feels like there's something wrong with his inner-thermometer which again, tells you everything that you need to know about him, but since we brought him up, let's make one thing clear. We just don't want to see him in Eagles green again.

Nick Foles, quarterback

Carson's fragile ego forced Philadelphia to ship Foles off as the Wentz Wagon seemed to break down most frequently whenever there was a threat of competition. Jalen Hurts thrives under pressure. Carson collapses under it. Hurts could have handled having Foles look over his shoulder. Still, while ideas about reacquiring Saint Nick, at times, make us smile, it's never going to happen.

The next time we'll see Nick sign with the Birds will be when he does so on a one-day deal when he officially retires as a member of the team that drafted him 88th overall during Round 3 of the 2012 NFL Draft.
