Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz downplayed comments from Troy Aikman that this season could be his final opportunity to prove himself as a franchise player.
Speaking to reporters after a minicamp practice, Wentz admitted he wasn’t even aware of Aikman’s comments.
“You know, everyone’s got their own opinion. I’m just excited to be playing this game, have this opportunity. I think we have the ability to do something special here and then we have a really good skill set offensively to be dynamic. It takes one day at a time, obviously, but for me, I don’t try to put too much pressure on myself. I always have high expectations for myself and for the offense, but I don’t try and play those types of games. I don’t have enough mental space to kind of process all that and it can wear on you. So for me, I just show up to try and be the best I can be, go home and be the best I can be as a father and as a husband, come back and do it again.”
During a conference call with reporters last month, Aikman said this is probably Wentz’s “last opportunity, just being blunt about it, to prove that he can be a franchise quarterback in the NFL.”
