Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz didn’t expect tension between him and Sam Bradford when the two met for the first time, and he told NJ.com that the meeting went according to his expectations.
“We talked football,” Wentz said. “There hasn’t been any tension. We’re here to compete and help try to help this team get better.
“You guys made the stories out of it. It’s been really good since we got in here. Finally getting out there, getting out on the field practicing, it’s been very good.”
Bradford refused to report to the team for two weeks after demanding a trade following the Eagles’ move to draft Wentz. He returned to off-season workouts last week, and practiced with Wentz for the first time on Tuesday.
“It’s been really good,” Wentz said of his relationship with Bradford and Chase Daniel. “With Sam and Chase there’s been a lot of good, open conversation. We’re all trying to help this team get better. Obviously, Sam and I are new to the offense and Chase has been in it previously. It’s been a really good atmosphere.”
