Carson Wentz is heading to Indianapolis.
The Eagles have agreed to trade the 2016 No. 2 general decide to the Colts, in accordance to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. Philadelphia will obtain a 2021 third-spherical decide and a conditional 2022 second-spherical decide that would flip into a primary-spherical decide.
The Colts have been the pure vacation spot for Wentz, who has familiarity with head coach Frank Reich from their shared time in Philadelphia. Reich was Wentz’s offensive coordinator for the primary two years of his profession from 2016-2017.
For the Eagles, the compensation isn’t as grand because the “Matthew Stafford package” they reportedly desired. But NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo studies the conditional decide will change into a first-round selection if Wentz performs 75 % of the Colts’ offensive snaps, or 70 % of the snaps and the crew makes the playoffs.
That means if Wentz isn’t performing nicely by midseason, Indianapolis would have a robust incentive to bench him.
Still the trade represents a contemporary begin for a quarterback who was at one level an MVP candidate, however in 2020 ended up driving the pine in Philadelphia.
