Terrell Owens thinks Washington made a mistake trading for Carson Wentz over Jimmy Garoppolo
Former Eagles WR and Pro Football Hall of Famer Terrell Owens has never been shy about speaking his mind.
He did it all throughout his 14-year NFL career and it hasn’t stopped since he hung up the cleats. Terrell Owens is going to Terrell Owens; there’s no stopping him.
When speaking with ESPN’s Josina Anderson and former NFL CB Fred Smoot on “The Crew” podcast, T.O. had some strong words for the Eagles’ former franchise quarterback, Carson Wentz.
The Sunday of the Eagles-Commanders matchup, NFL insider Adam Schefter pushed a story detailing a potential trade that fell apart during the past offseason. The article laid out the Jimmy Garoppolo trade saga and how Wentz’s current team, the Washington Commanders, were poised to land Jimmy G until the 49ers QB underwent shoulder surgery.
Following the announcement of Garoppolo’s surgery, Washington went with Plan B: Commander Carson.
Of course, the story has become a topic of discussion following Wentz’s brutal performance against his former team. Head coach Ron Rivera even referred to the report as “bullcrap” during a press conference earlier this week.
Terrell Owens, as he always does, shared his thoughts on the report while speaking with Anderson and Smoot.

“Y’all would’ve been better off with Jimmy Garoppolo, to be quite honest,” Owens said. “I don’t understand why you feel like Carson Wentz is the answer. Carson Wentz hasn’t been the answer in either of the last two or three stops that he’s been.”
Say what you want about Terrell Owens, the guy is typically on point. Sometimes, the truth hurts.
“This is what we get from Carson Wentz,” Owens continued. “We probably have seen the best of Carson Wentz when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles. That’s just the honesty and the reality of it. Every stop that he’s been, you’ve seen glimpses of what he could be but there’s no consistency. And I think we all can agree with that with his play. No matter how good of a God-given talent he has, it’s not showing up on game day, on Sundays the way it should be.”
Bashing Wentz for his wildly inconsistent play over the past few years has become the norm. Terrell Owens certainly isn’t breaking new ground here, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that he’s correct in his assessment of the Eagles former signal caller.
Wentz’s clock has been ticking since the day he left Philadelphia and its creeping closer to midnight with every passing week. If his continues to disappoint, Wentz may not even be the starter by the time his team travels to Philadelphia in Week 10.
As a former member of the Wentz Wagon, I can proudly say I’ve transferred my allegiance to the Hurts Hype Train. It feels good to be on the right side of history for once.
