The jury seems to still be out on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, even though he's already played four NFL seasons. After a poor rookie season, he broke out with a big sophomore year in 2017. He's been chasing that high ever since, though, not producing nearly as efficiently in either of his last two seasons while struggling with injuries.

Injuries aren't the only thing he's struggled with, however. According to this stat from Pro Football Focus, Wentz has been one of the NFL's least accurate passers since entering the league.

That's a pretty jarring stat, and any time you're tied with Mitchell Trubisky in a passing number, you know it's a bad sign.

This is an especially interesting stat because a lot of Wentz's struggles have been attributed to a lack of a strong supporting cast. In 2019, for example, none of the Eagles' top three pass-catchers were wide receivers.

With first-round pick Jalen Reagor added to the fold and DeSean Jackson healthy again, Wentz is really going to need to prove himself in 2020 if he wants to keep up his reputation as a strong passer. Another year of struggles with accuracy, however, could really send him tumbling down the league's QB rankings.
