Carson Wentz from North Dakota State presents a viable option for the present, but mostly for the future. If “Fitz-magic” – as receiver Brandon Marshall refers to him – comes back, then Wentz will have a smart and savvy veteran to learn from for a season. If he doesn’t, then “Wentz-magic” will have two great receivers in Marshall and Eric Decker, along with running back Matt Forte to help usher him into the NFL.
It’s a win-win, and if ever there was a situation where Wentz could thrive, it’s this one.
