Eagles' Carson Wentz adds muscle and motivation entering Year 5

PHILADELPHIA -- Speaking Thursday about his development as a leader, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz noted he is entering his fifth NFL season, and got caught on that thought for a moment.

"It still seems crazy to say it's my fifth year," Wentz said, breaking into a smile as the next thought popped up. "Definitely feel like a veteran now."

Looking at the differences between this summer and last shows the accelerated timeline NFL players work on, and how much has changed in a calendar year for Wentz, who suddenly finds himself smack in his prime and with plenty to prove.
