Sounds like Carson Wentz and Eagles wide receivers are terrible at golf

Sounds like Carson Wentz and Eagles wide receivers are terrible at golf

You know how a lot of professional athletes are good at golfing?

Don't count Carson Wentz and the Eagles' wide receivers in that group.

Wentz on Wednesday was asked what outside the box things he and his teammates did to build chemistry during their time in Fargo, North Dakota, a trip led by the Eagles' quarterback to bond with his wideouts.

Wentz, who was speaking at a press conference to announce his Audience of One foundation, had a fun and honest answer:

It was golfing. We went golfing, there was eight of us, we played best ball, it took 4½ hours to play 10 holes — it was a disaster but we had fun doing it.

As long as Wentz and his wide receivers connect on touchdowns in 2017, they can be bad at golf all they want.

And like Wentz said, the group is having fun and his teammates are enjoying North Dakota.

"They love it," Wentz said Tuesday. "Check their Twitter. They love it."

Giants WR Brandon Marshall allegedly spit on Eagles fan

Giants WR Brandon Marshall allegedly spit on Eagles fan

Odell Beckham pretended to urinate on the Eagles’ home field, but it was Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall who may have crossed the line with his use of bodily fluids on Sunday.

Video shows the unidentified Eagles fan accuse Marshall of spitting on him amid a heated verbal exchange during pregame warmups. It’s unclear what compelled a six-time Pro Bowl selection to have words with some guy wearing a Randall Cunningham throwback jersey, but if Marshall did spit, it was after he was repeatedly challenged to a fight.

There is no visual confirmation as to whether Marshall spit on the man, either, as the footage appears to be shot on the first smart phone ever made. Marshall’s head does make a forward motion as if he were spitting. Then again, some people just have trouble controlling their saliva when they’re yelling, too, leaving open the small-percentage chance this was accidental spittle.

You be the judge.

Spit or not spit, it will be interesting to see if the Eagles and Lincoln Financial Field rethink their policy on allowing fans on the field before certain games after this little – ahem – spat.
