Wentz again to captain Eagles in 2018

PHILADELPHIA, PA (NBC) -- The Eagles have voted on team captains for the second straight year and there are some new faces in the mix this time around.

As the team did last year, it again picked two offensive captains, two defensive captains and one special teamer.

Here are the 2018 captains:

- Carson Wentz

- Jason Kelce

- Malcolm Jenkins

- Fletcher Cox

- Kamu Grugier-Hill


This is the second straight year being named a captain for Wentz and Jenkins, but this is the first year for Kelce, Cox and Grugier-Hill. The other three captains last year were Jason Peters, Brandon Graham and Chris Maragos.

Wentz begins his third season in the NFL on the sidelines as he waits to be cleared for contact by doctors after undergoing surgery for a torn ACL last year.

Nick Foles will start in the Eagles opener Thursday against Atlanta.
