For the second day in a row, the quarterback carousel in the National Football League continues to turn. USA TODAY Sports has learned that the Indianapolis Colts have traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders for a package of selections. The transaction was confirmed by a source familiar with the situation. The individual spoke on the condition of anonymity because the judgment had not yet been made public by the court.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the story was the first to break. According to Schefter, the Colts will get two third-round selections in 2022 and 2023, with the latter having the potential to become a second-round pick if Wentz plays 70 percent of the team’s snaps in the next season. According to Schefter, the clubs will also trade second-round selections in the 2022 draft.
One year after acquiring Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles for what turned out to be a first-round choice and a third-round selection, the Indianapolis Colts have decided to part ways with the quarterback.
