Philadelphia has agreed to trade Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first, league sources tell @mortreport and me.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 18, 2021
Mike Garafolo from the NFL Network is reporting that in order for the 2022 second round pick to become a first Wentz would have to play 75% of the snaps. OR 70% and the Colts make the playoffs
Drafted 2nd overall in 2016 after Howie Roseman was able to get from pick 14 to pick 2, Wentz was supposed to be the franchise quarterback. And for the first four years, he looked the part. But somewhere down the line the relationship between Wentz and the organization became fractured. The straw that broke the camels back seemed to be when the Eagles selected quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Wentz neglected to speak after he was benched in Green Bay for Hurts. He now gets a fresh start in indy and the Eagles will go all in on the Jalen Hurts era.
