9. Carson Wentz
One of the strangest stories in recent NFL history, Wentz’s career imploded after a great start. In hindsight, the Eagles should never have handed him a massive contract after one good season. But they made that bold step and paid the price. His decline was bizarre because his output dropped. Meanwhile, his mistakes rose when he should have been in his prime.
It’s bizarre because Wentz lost his passing accuracy. Yes, there were major issues with his surrounding cast in Philadelphia but that’s not the full reason (via Sky Sports). He achieved success before with mediocre support. In the end, the Eagles cut their losses and traded him to the Colts. Perhaps he’ll reignite his career in Indianapolis but there’s no doubt his potential was wasted in Philly.
