We certainly didn’t have any questions or concerns Carson Wentz’s character, so his generous tip story shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Greger told the story of Wentz going to a North Dakota bar with a big group of friends during the Eagles bye week.

“They had a private room in the back, they had actually called ahead to set up because Carson didn’t want a big fuss about it,” Greger said. “They were playing pool, shooting some darts, nothing crazy. They were drinking some beer, but they got a ride home. No one drove home. The tab came out to $1,000 they told me. Carson picked up the whole thing, tipped them $500.”

Greger also some interesting tid bits like Wentz really loves the song Cotton Eyed Joe and if you buy a mortgage from Wentz’s father Doug in North Dakota, you will get an autographed Carson Wentz Eagles jersey.
