INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts will trade quarterback Carson Wentz, ESPN reported Wednesday.
ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter tweeted that sources said the Colts will trade Wentz to the Washington Commanders for a package of draft picks.
The Colts and Commanders will swap 2022 second-round picks, Schefter reported, while Indianapolis will also receive a 2022 third-round pick and a 2023 third-round pick that would become a second-round pick if Wentz is involved in 70% of plays.
The Colts acquired Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles on Feb. 18, 2021, for a 2021 third-round pick and what became a 2022 first-round pick after he took 75% of the team's snaps.
Wentz completed 62.4% of his passes for 3,563 yards with 27 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
He received some blame for the team's late-season collapse that included consecutive losses to Las Vegas and Jacksonville that eliminated the team from playoff contention.
