The well-liked veteran who remains behind Carson Wentz in Philadelphia despite two years of playoff success has a unique team option in which both sides could opt out of a projected $20 million deal for 2019. "We haven't had a lot of substance in those conversations and because we want to have relationships with our players where we keep those talks close to the vest, I don't know that it will be helpful to talk about any player about what we want to do".
From the organization's perspective, it's nearly impossible to pay that stipend for a backup especially with Wentz's presumed extension, which could reach well over $25M now in play.
The Eagles also could slap a franchise tag on him, though that seems unlikely, since it would cost them up to $25 million for a backup quarterback, who will be wanted by others.
"Having the option to be a free agent is extremely important", he said.
The Eagles finished 9-7 on the season and were eliminated from the playoffs after losing to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
I go back to the year 2017, Carson had a full offseason, he was healthy, and he was able to go through OTAs and gather that timing and rhythm and everything led into the system and the MVP type season that he was having in 2017 before the injury.

"Carson Wentz is the quarterback going forward", Pederson said Tuesday.
Wentz suffered a torn ACL/LCL in his left knee last December.
Speaking in a news conference on Tuesday, the head coach insisted the Eagles will stick with Wentz as the starter, despite him missing the past two postseasons due to injuries, including their Super Bowl triumph last season.
"Yeah, like I said, I would love to lead a team", Foles said, via Tim McManus of ESPN. "We try to factor that in as well, but the bottom line is we gotta do what's best for our football team". I know once I get healed and I do this the right way, long term this should be fine and not come back. "I first and foremost am looking forward to hopefully putting that to rest over the next couple of years". "More than anything, assuming rehabbing everything goes well, hopefully once we get rolling again in April I can be back out there, where that wasn't necessarily the case previous year ... and I think that will be really big for all of us".
Wentz, according to Pederson, had aggravated his back injury and, in fact, had been diagnosed with a stress fracture following an overtime loss at Dallas.
