Carson Wentz has been traded, meaning he and the Philadelphia Eagles have officially signed the divorce papers. Now, Wentz will wear the horseshoe in blue. The Indianapolis Colts are trading a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick which has the potential to become a first-round pick, per Adam Schefter.

The 2022 second-round pick will become a first-rounder if Wentz plays 75 percent of the snaps or 70 percent and the Colts make the playoffs, per Mike Garafolo.

Carson Wentz had a massive down year in 2020, it was an unfortunate fall from grace for the former MVP candidate. Wentz seemingly fell apart as a passer, throwing 16 touchdowns, 15 interceptions, and 2,620 yards which gave him a 72.8 passer rating, yikes. That year was so bad that some people were comparing Wentz to Mitchell Trubisky, MITCHELL TRUBISKY OF ALL PEOPLE. There were a lot of reported issues between Carson Wentz and former head coach Doug Pederson. Now, Wentz is going to a place that really wants him and he has the chance to compete for a Super Bowl.

The Indianapolis Colts have made the move to secure them a quarterback for many years, after being in a position that could’ve easily ended in them being screwed out of one. Frank Reich, the current head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, was the offensive coordinator for the Eagles when Carson Wentz was an MVP candidate before severely injuring his knee. The Colts wanted Carson Wentz, they traded for him and have the pieces in place to help him succeed.

This move gives Carson Wentz a fresh start, it gives the Indianapolis Colts their QB of the future and gives the Eagles some draft capital in what may become a long rebuild. The 2021 season can’t come fast enough.
