Report: Bears are the front runner for Eagles QB Carson Wentz

FCS Football Carson Wentz
Carson Wentz a former North Dakota State Bison could be heading back to the mid-west. A new report says the Bears are the front runner to land the former FCS gunslinger.

The Chicago Bears want Carson Wentz, and according to Albert Breer they are in the driver’s seat to land him.

Albert Breer told Colin Cowherd on the Herd that the Bears are the front runner, but Carson would like to play for the Colts.

“I do know that there is a feeling inside the building from (general manager) Ryan Pace, the coaching staff, (head coach) Matt Nagy, John DeFilippo, their pass-game coordinator who got two of the best years out of Carson Wentz in 2016 and 2017 as his quarterback coach, they believe mechanically they can fix him. 

“I think the issue right now, is where Carson Wentz wants to go. I think it has become pretty clear he’d rather go to Indianapolis. I think part of it now for the Eagles is if our best return right now is Chicago over Indy, then we need to convince Carson Wentz this is the only place you are going, and you need to buck up and accept this and realize the Bears are going to give you a good chance.”

The Bears would be very similar to the Eagles if you ask me. Right now the biggest problem with Wentz is his surrounding parts. He does not have a very good line, and his weapons are horrible.

The Bears are damn near the same team. Who knows, but I think a deal is knocked out soon.
