Career back-up Chase Daniel is reportedly “not happy” with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to NFL Network‘s Mike Garafolo. Carson Wentz will start for the Eagles once he fully recovers from his rib injury.

He suffered that injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their first preseason game. If he’s healthy next week against the Cleveland Browns, Wentz will start.

The Eagles traded with the Browns to get the second overall pick in April’s NFL Draft.

Daniel signed a three-year, $21 million deal with the Eagles in the off-season, as he followed first-year head coach Doug Pederson to Philadelphia. He signed on to be the back-up to Sam Bradford, so why’s he complaining?

The Eagles traded presumptive starter Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings Sat. morning. In exchange for the career below .500 quarterback, the Vikings gave up a 2017 first-rounder pick and a conditional fourth-round pick in 2018.

That conditional pick has stipulations to it. If the Vikings reached the NFC Conference Championship game, it’s a third-round pick. However, if they reach the Super Bowl, it’s a second-round pick.

Minutes after he was traded, people automatically thought that Daniel would be the starter. However, as we first reported, the future is now for the Eagles.

Daniel has only started two career games. He went 0-1 in the 2013 season, before winning a game in 2014. He had 464 yards with a touchdown and an interception in those games.

In 55 career games, he’s gone 50-of-77 for 464 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He was also sacked seven times, too.
