Carson Wentz was lying in a cornfield when he found out he would start for Eagles


It’s been a big week for the Philadelphia Eagles and a monumental one for Carson Wentz. The second overall pick is set to become the only Eagles rookie quarterback to start in the season opener after the Eagles traded Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings. So where was the NDSU star when he got the call from Doug Pederson, informing him of this weeks developments?

Well then.

However, this hasn’t stopped the rookie from getting straight to work and establishing himself as the leader of this team.

The Carson Wentz era has officially started in Philadelphia, albeit in the most unlikely of places.
