Colts acquire Carson Wentz from Philadelphia

USA Today Sports

The Indianapolis Colts acquired quarterback Carson Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles for second and third round draft picks.

Philadelphia will receive a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick for the disgruntled QB.

The conditional second-round pick will become a first-round pick if Wentz plays 75% of the snaps or 70% and the team has to make the playoffs.

The Eagles will also have to pay $33.8 million in dead money cap penalties for dealing Wentz.

The 28-year-old will reunite with former Eagles offensive coordinator and now Colts head coach Frank Reich in Indianapolis, where hell look to get his mojo back.

Wentz was horrendous last season leading the league in fumbles, interceptions, and sacks, which led to him getting benched after 12 games.

On a positive note for Philadelphia, they avoid paying the ridiculous full 4-year, $128 million contract that they signed Wentz for in 2019 that kicks in this season.

As for now, Jalen Hurts will be the starting quarterback for the team unless they decide to use their number six overall draft pick to select another.
