It has finally happened ladies and gentleman. Former Philadelphia Eagle QB Carson Wentz was traded to the Colts for a 2021 3rd round pick and conditional 2022 2nd round pick, according to ESPN writer Adam Schefter. The 2022 2nd round pick can turn into a 1st round pick if Wentz plays 75 percent of snaps or 70 percent and the team makes the playoffs.
This trade was a forgone conclusion as there were many reports of Wentz’s unhappiness going into the offseason. Wentz struggled most of the 2020 season as he only passed for 2,620 passing yards, 16 TDs, 15 INTs, and a completion percentage 57.4%. In his time starting for the Eagles this past season he led them to a record of 3-8-1, and was benched for 2020 2nd round pick Jalen Hurts late in the season. The Eagles now turn to Hurts hoping he can be the quarterback for the future and lead the Eagles back to a Super Bowl. As for the Colts they hope to revitalize Wentz’s career as he is now back with his former Offensive Coordinator Frank Reich.
