HOUSTON - Carson Wentz picked up a football Thursday morning for the first time in a month. He wished it could have been on a practice field preparing for Sunday's Super Bowl rather than the set of ABC's Good Morning America. But that's the way it goes.
IN A COLUMN on Carson Wentz the other day, my colleague David Murphy wrote that, after watching Alex Smith and his somewhat limited arm strength in the Chiefs' 18-16 playoff loss to the Steelers, he's convinced that Wentz's big right arm was one of the main reasons Doug Pederson preferred a future with him as the Eagles' starting quarterback rather than Sam Bradford.
I HAVE NO DOUBT that when Brian Dawkins' name comes up for discussion at the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection meeting in Houston a month from now, somebody among the 48 voters in the room will mention his interception total.
IN LESS than three months, and possibly sooner, Bennie Logan is going to become a very rich man. The Eagles' defensive tackle hardly is living paycheck to paycheck now. He's in the final year of a rookie deal that will earn him $1.6 million this year.
