Carson Wentz reportedly bought guns as Christmas gift for O-line

Carson Wentz reportedly bought guns as Christmas gift for O-line

Carson Wentz knows a thing or two about guns. He was hunting when he learned that Sam Bradford had been traded to Minnesota and he reportedly spent the holidays hunting with Mike Trout.

And many backfield players to give gifts to their offensive linemen at holidays season, like Ezekiel Elliott getting the Cowboys' O-line UTVs or Trevor Siemian buying Skittles-dispensing jackets for his guys. So it isn't all that surprising that Wentz would gift his linemen with personalized shotguns for Christmas.

Wentz reportedly hasn't given his teammates the gifts yet as the guns are being finalized, but each apparently has the lineman's number on it. 

Allen Barbre told ESPN that the gift "is an awesome gun" and that he is "excited about it."

"I haven't really held a gun or anything before," rookie Isaac Seumalo told ESPN. "But I'm more than thankful for it. It looks sweet. Carson said he'd teach me how to use it and all that good stuff."

Meanwhile, Trout has ingratiated himself with the Eagles in his own way, albeit not by buying guns. The Angels star outfielder gave Nike shoes to every player on the team, according to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer

Pick some PPA violations and we'll tell you which Philly athlete you are

Is there anything more Philly than a Philadelphia Parking Authority violation? 

There is no greater sadness than walking out to your car, spotting that slim white and blue envelope on the front window from the distance, and just knowing it signifies: they got you. 

To those of us whom have fought this long battle, we salute you. While the PPA may have temporarily suspended some of their violations, we know it's only a matter of time before they emerge back and stronger than ever.

So, we've decided to create this handy little quiz for you to determine your Philly athelete personality, depending on the type of violation you will likely recieve next.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.
