It’s about time the NFL picks up a conservative badass!
The Philadelphia Eagles offense is definitely set up to use a “shotgun” formation after their new rookie, Carson Wentz, buys them all Beretta shotgun. You can imagine the backlash from liberals..but even the guys on the team that have never shot a gun before are thankful, and looking forward to learning how to use it.
Find out why he feels this is important, and why he is right!
VIA| Rookie quarterback Carson Wentz bought each of his offensive linemen a personalized Beretta shotgun for Christmas, a twist on the time-honored tradition of a quarterback rewarding the men who keep him upright each week, ESPN reported.
“This is an awesome gun. I’m excited about it,” said Allen Barbre, who, like Wentz, is an avid Hunter. “I don’t know if I’ll shoot it, though. It’s pretty nice.”
The shotguns are being engraved with each player’s number on the butt of the weapon, which is believed to be a Beretta Silver Pigeon – a $2,000 model.
“I like to go clay shooting and stuff,” Brandon Brooks told ESPN. “All I’ve got is a home defense tactical shotgun, short-barrel, so I was looking for one of these.”
Not everyone is applauding the shotguns, however.
Shira Goodman, the executive director of CeaseFirePA, expressed concern about gifting guns to NFL players. The Eagles, in particular, have had a recent spate of gun-related incidents. Linebacker Nigel Bradham was arrested in October after allegedly leaving a loaded gun in his backpack while trying to go through security at Miami International Airport. Josh Huff, a wide receiver, was charged in November with speeding, possession of a small amount of marijuana and unlawful possession of a weapon.
Wentz, a 23-year-old who was selected No. 2 overall in the 2016 NFL draft, hasn’t delivered the guns yet (they’re not finished), but sent each of the linemen a text with a photo of the gun.
“I haven’t really held a gun or anything before,” Isaac Seumalo said. “But I’m more than thankful for it. It looks sweet. Carson said he’d teach me how to use it and all that good stuff.”
