Carson Wentz was as good as advertised in his first on-field workout with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Head coach Doug Pederson told ESPN that the rookie quarterback did everything the team could have expected.
"I thought he did an outstanding job at the terminology of the offense, meaning he had no huddle issues spitting out the plays. Very athletic in person on run pass options," Pederson said. "Strong arm, no issues with any throw, sees the field well. Smart kid, knows protection."
Wentz is one of three quarterbacks on the Eagles' roster guaranteed $10 million in 2016. The Eagles created a complicated quarterback situation by signing two veterans -- 2015 starter Sam Bradford (two years, $35 million) and free agent Chase Daniel (three years, up to $21 million) -- in March before unloading multiple picks in a trade with the Cleveland Browns that put the team in positions to draft Wentz with the second overall pick.
Bradford vowed a holdout when the Eagles made the trade, even after personnel boss Howie Roseman declared Bradford would remain the No. 1 quarterback.
Bradford's agent, Tom Condon, has since said the holdout threat was bait for the Denver Broncos. Denver has a shaky quarterback depth chart coming off of a Super Bowl 50 victory followed by Peyton Manning's retirement and Brock Osweiler bolting for Houston.
The Eagles asked for too much -- Condon implied a pair of second-round picks -- and Denver backed away to draft Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch.
Bradford is back at offseason workouts and organized team activities.
