Washington Commanders Acquire Carson Wentz In Trade Via Colts
Carson Wentz will now be playing for his third team in three seasons. Who the hell would have thought that while Wentz was on his way towards winning the 2018 NFL MVP Award? This time, Wentz finds his way back to the NFC East.
The Washington Commanders have their new franchise quarterback. Washington is sending two third round picks for Wentz. Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report the news:
The Colts found a taker for Wentz. Washington tried their damn best to land Russell Wilson prior to him getting dealt to Denver. Wentz obviously became the plan B. So much so that the Colts were contemplating cutting Wentz. Now they were able to secure two third round picks and have Washington take on the contract.
A few weeks ago, I also wrote a post detailing how Carson Wentz was the Colts best option for next year. Based on the current quarterback market, the Colts got a bad return on this trade. Indianapolis already didn’t have a first round pick because of the first Wentz deal. Do we trust Chris Ballard to even nail those picks?
This is fascinating for the NFC East. Dallas is facing a serious cap crunch and are likely to cut Amari Cooper among other. Philadelphia made the playoffs but are still in a bit of a rebuild. The Giants are a hot mess and are probably ticketed for a last place finish. It could be Washington’s world here soon.
