Eagles OC Frank Reich gives stamp of approval for Carson Wentz's outside quarterback coaching

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

Last week, The Philadelphia Daily News surmised from the body language of head coach Doug Pederson that the Eagles were unhappy that Carson Wentz saw a coach outside of the organization to help fine-tune some mechanics.

On Monday, Eagles offensive coordinator said that he had no issue at all with Wentz getting outside help. 

"No, I didn't have any issue at all to be honest with you," said Reich. "As coaches, we would love to give him a few weeks off of rest, and then, 'Come on, let's go, let's get in the lab and let's work.' Back when I was playing and when coach Pederson was playing that's what we did. We took a little time off and we were back in the building throwing with receivers and talking to our coaches. 

"But that's fine. It's a different era. You can't do that anymore (because of the CBA), so Carson is like a lot of our players. They have an itch to get better, so if I'm a player, I'm going to find ways to get better."

So we can probably put that to bed.
