Philadelphia Eagles Name Starting QB for Week 1 Following Sam Bradford Trade

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson addressed the Philadelphia media, and to no surprise, he named No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz as the starting quarterback for Week 1 of the 2016 NFL season. 

When asked abut Chase Daniels, Pederson confirmed he’d be the backup QB. 

The question now has to be asked: is Wentz ready for the fire of the NFL and Philadelphia most importantly?

After spending months insisting that the rookie quarterback would spend his entire first season as a pro essentially redshirting, the Eagles blew the whole thing up and handed him the keys.

This comes days after the shocking trade of Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings, and the bypassing of Chase Daniels, who was brought in from the Kansas City Chiefs. 

Wentz was selected No. 2 for a reason though and the Eagles traded up for him, so Pederson and Howie Roseman must believe he has the stuff legends are made out of.
