PHILADELPHIA — Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz saved his best for last.
Wentz ended the final practice of the offseason before the long layoff until training camp on a high note, shining in the team drills he did take part in and looking the best he has all offseason throwing the ball.
With the Eagles not running as many full-team drills on Thursday as they did earlier in the mandatory minicamp, Wentz got nine reps in 7-on-7 drills, the most he has all week.
Wentz looked his best during the red zone drills the team ran. His best throw of the day came from about the five-yard line, hitting receiver Greg Ward Jr. in the corner of the end zone with a perfectly placed ball just over a defender’s fingertips.
Wentz followed up that pass with another touchdown, finding tight end Dallas Goedert in the front corner of the end zone, firing a rocket past a defender and right into the rookie’s hands.
Wentz nearly had another touchdown later on in the practice when he fired a bomb to receiver Rashard Davis about 40-yards down the field, but the pass was not caught.
Overall, Wentz was 5-of-8 with three touchdowns and no interceptions on Thursday in the nine team drills he ran.
