The Facts: GM Howie Roseman declined to give a timetable on Wentz’s return, but sources close to the quarterback said that he is expected to be healthy by the start of workouts in mid-April.
Diehards Line: This according to Inquirer staffer Jeff McLane, who went on to note that even with Nick Foles being allowed to move on as a free agent, Wentz still has plenty to prove. In fact, a contract extension, even though Wentz is available for one, is increasingly unlikely this offseason. Both the Eagles and the 26-year-old quarterback would have incentive for waiting a year. The team needs to see how Wentz recovers from the stress fracture in his back and whether he can finish a season for the first time in three years. He would conceivably want to increase his value, especially compared with classmate Jared Goff.
