On Monday morning, a report by Joseph Santoliquito of PhillyVoice.com said that NFL and Eagles sources described Wentz as ‘selfish’, ‘uncompromising’, and ‘playing favorites’.
Six Eagles players have defended Wentz regarding the incident, as of Monday afternoon – Lane Johnson, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Brooks, Nate Sudfeld, Chris Maragos, and Zach Ertz. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins has not yet spoken regarding the commotion.
Santoliquito reportedly has a session with Jenkins every week (where Jenkins could’ve said something about Wentz), and is good “friends” with him. If you go to Santoliquito’s Twitter account, he favorites and tweets about the Pro Bowler quite a lot.
In the report, Santoliquito also mentioned that Wentz was “once verbally attacked by a highly respected teammate for not being ‘a team guy.’” Jenkins could’ve very much been that “highly respected teammate.”
Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery who thrives with Foles under center, also has not spoken out about the Wentz incident. Back in November, another “anonymous source” said, “I feel like we’re over-targeting Zach Ertz.” Jeffery, who was not getting as many deep-targets by Wentz, is suspected to be that “anonymous source.”
So out of the six “anonymous sources” that slandered Wentz in the “exclusive” report, there is a pretty good chance that Malcolm Jenkins and Alshon Jeffery are two of six “anonymous sources” that slandered the 26-year-old quarterback. Wideout Nelson Agholor could’ve possibly been another.Follow @EaglesFeast
