Carson Wentz is getting one of his best friends back

[UPDATE: SEPT. 30] The Wentz to Matthews connection is still strong Youth Jalen Mills Jerseys , and the two connected on a 56-yard pass for a touchdown in Week 4 against the Titans. And you know that the friends celebrated with their patented “strictly business” handshake.The Eagles re-signed Jordan Matthews following a string of injuries to the wide receiver group, and while most of the team’s fan base is busy arguing about the decision online, there’s at least one guy who has to be stoked: Carson Wentz.The two quickly became friends during Wentz’s rookie season in 2016, and the quarterback targeted Matthews 116 times " although BLG will argue that’s because there wasn’t really anyone else to go to " for 73 receptions and 804 yards that season. Whether Matthews was as productive as Wentz perceives is immaterial, the QB clearly has faith in his receiver, and their off-field rapport should still translate to the field. This will be additionally important as it’s the first game of the 2018 season for both players " Wentz is coming back from injury, and Matthews has been popping around the league a bit.It was no surprise that Wentz was sad to see one of his best friends leave the team back in 2017, but the quarterback has to be excited to get his brother back Mike Quick Jerseys Stitched , if even for a little while.Things should pick up right where the two left off; Matthews was a groomsmen in Wentz’s wedding over the summer, and they have stayed close despite the distance. Here’s hoping we get to see them bro out in Wentz’s return on Sunday, and celebrate some big plays on the way to a win.But in the meantime, let’s take a look at their well-rounded friendship: Their infamous handshake celebrationTheir mission trips and AO1 supportThey support each other during injuriesAnd never forget a celebration Dak Prescott pulled a new Stetson out of a box to wear during his media availability Thursday. It came in handy when asked for a contract update.“I’ve got my cowboy hat on, so I’m a Cowboy. Let’s say that,” Prescott said.The quarterback’s representation and the Cowboys are in active negotiations to get a long-term deal worked out. But they have talked for a while now, and the deal Carson Wentz signed with the Eagles last week might have complicated things.The Eagles agreed to a four-year, $128 million extension with Wentz Youth Alshon Jeffery Jerseys , who has yet to start a playoff game. The contract did not go unnoticed by Prescott, who has a 3-2 record against Wentz, a 32-16 regular-season record and has started three postseason games.“I was happy for Carson, a guy that deserves it, a guy who has been great in this league,” Prescott said. “[He] had an awesome year and potentially, without the injury, wins the MVP. Congrats to Carson. Knowing him personally Alshon Jeffery Jerseys Stitched , he deserves it.”Prescott, a fourth-round pick in 2016, is entering the final year of his rookie deal. That puts him in line for the franchise tag, barring a long-term deal, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones always has expressed optimism at getting Prescott signed long term. The offseason program ended Thursday and training camp begins with the first practice July 27. Will the Cowboys get a deal done with Prescott before the season opener?“It happens when it happens,” Prescott said.Prescott didn’t offer any more of an update on talks than that after allowing earlier this offseason that the sides have traded proposals.“I’m involved,” Prescott said Thursday. “It’s about me. But they stand where they stand.”
