Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was knocked out of the 2019 playoffs by Jadeveon Clowney, which seems like old news, but there has been talk about the Eagles having an interest in Clowney. Wentz made an appearance on 94WIP Sports Radio in Philadelphia and said the hit was a bummer, but everyone has moved on.

The Eagles QB also said he has no ill will towards Clowney, which might be the big takeaway from his appearance.

The Eagles need some pass rushers and bringing in Clowney would make a whole lot of sense. Wentz said he will leave those decisions up to  Howie Roseman, but he still has respect for Clowney and would welcome him on the squad.

“Listen, at the end of the day, I’ll trust Howie with that,” Wentz said. “That play happened, it is what it is. That’s football. It was an unfortunate way to end end season for me personally, but I have respect for Jadeveon, he’s a heck of a player.”

Wentz said he trusts Howie to make the right decisions with the team, and would support whatever type of moves he thinks the Eagles need to make.

“I don’t think he had any ill will with that hit,” Wentz said. “That’s part of football. But he’s a heck of a player, so I trust Howie to make the right decisions to make our team the best we can be.”

Clowney would make the team a lot better, so it’s no surprise Wentz is taking an Eagles-first approach with this situation.
