Eagles S Rodney McLeod on Carson Wentz: ‘I wouldn’t want to have any other QB right now’


The Philadelphia Eagles are enjoying a shocking start from their rookie quarterback, Carson Wentz, and the veterans are the most excited about the young quarterback’s performance.

The Eagles invested a lot of money into the team this past offseason and one of their biggest signings was ex-St.Louis Rams safety Rodney McLeod. McLeod has already made a lasting impression with his team team, especially among the Philadelphia fanbase. The Eagles new safety leads the team in tackles (22) and interceptions (2) already in his first four career games in Philadelphia.

McLeod has played with numerous quarterbacks during his five seasons in the NFL. He’s played with the likes of former Eagles quarterback, Nick Foles, who was a member of the St.Louis Rams this past season, along with Shaun Hill, and Case Keenum. He was reunited with his former starting quarterback, who was a memeber of the Eagles during the offseason and preseason, Sam Bradford, who he spent three seasons with as teammates on the Rams.

McLeod was excited to have Bradford as a teammate again this offseason singing his praises, but the reunion was cut short once the Eagles traded the quarterback to the Minnesota Vikings a week before the regular season.

It didn’t take McLeod long to fall head over heels for the Eagles stud rookie quarterback Wentz, and who can blame him? Wentz has been playing phenomenal football since being named the team’s starter less than a week before the week one matchup versus the Cleveland Browns.

McLeod was on NFL network discussing the Eagles rookie.

“Just cool, calm, and collective,” McLeod said, when asked what Wentz was like. “Carson is a great guy, great leader, and just been playing phenomenal these first four games for us.

“It’s just amazing to me every time I look at there on the practice field. Just seeing put the ball on a rope in the right place and he’s just composed at the same time. He does a great job at leading that group. I wouldn’t want to have any other quarterback right now. It’s all Wentzsylvania over here.”
