Commanders rip ‘unprofessional’ interview with Wentz


ABC7 News sports reporter Scott Abraham drew the ire of Washington Commanders team president Jason Wright for his hard line questions to quarterback Carson Wentz.

Abraham asked Wentz of his thoughts about the characterization of local reports of his inaccuracy during his first training camp with Washington.

“For one it’s camp,” Wentz said. “I didn’t know that, so thank you. At the same time I’m my biggest critic. I come back after practice, I’m kicking over one, two, three, four, five plays.”

Abraham then followed up by saying to Wentz, “it’s been well-documented Philly didn’t want you, Indy didn’t want you” before asking the QB if he thinks this is his last chance to prove he can be a starting quarterback in the NFL.

“I don’t really think about all that stuff for me,” Wentz replied. “I’m playing the game that I love. And I have the most confidence of anybody in myself to deliver to play at a high level to, you know, be a part of something special here with this team.”

Wentz responded with class to a blunt question. However, Commanders team president Jason Wright wasn’t as cordial as his quarterback.

Wright took to Twitter to express his displeasure with Abraham’s question, calling the situation a “pompous, unprofessional mess.”
