According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Caplan, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson and the rest of the staff have made some tweaks to Carson Wentz's game, including how he holds the football.
Prior to Sunday's open practice at Lincoln Financial Field, Pederson explained exactly what adjustments the coaching staff has already tried to make to Wentz's delivery.
"Not from the upper-body," Pederson said of the changes he has made mechanically with Wentz through the first week of training camp. "It's not a throwing mechanic. Nothing like that. Just trying to make sure his lower-half of his body is in a better posture. Sometimes he gets a little tall and that effects his throw. Keeping his feet tighter to the ground, where he can get the ball out faster."
Much has been made recently about the fact that some deep passes from Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz seem to flutter or wobble out of his hands, particularly during practices over the past several days, the story said.
