Colts acquire QB Carson Wentz from Eagles
The Indianapolis Colts have found their Philip Rivers replacement.
The team announced today that they have acquired young quarterback Carson Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for
third-round draft pick in 2021 and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first round pick under the following conditions: Wentz plays 75% of the snaps for the Colts in 2021, or he plays 70% of the snaps AND the colts make the playoffs.
Wentz, 28, was selected 2nd overall by the Eagles in the 2016 NFL Draft. He started his career off strong (which included a 2017 Pro Bowl selection, and being named a 2017 Second Team All-Pro), but things had soured in recent years which resulted in Jalen Hurts taking over the starting quarterback duties in Philadelphia this past season.
Wentz has amassed 1562 pass completions for 16,811 passing yards, 121 touchdowns, and 50 interceptions over a span of five seasons and 68 games.
