Washington Commanders trading for Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz.

The Colts are trading quarterback Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders for a package of draft picks, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Wednesday. Let's have a look at the whole story to know more.

Colts moving up from No. 47 overall to No. 42.

The Colts will receive the Commanders' third-round picks in 2022 and 2023, sources told Schefter. The 2023 third-rounder can become a second-round selection if Wentz plays 70% of Washington's snaps. The teams also swapped second-round picks in 2022, with the Colts moving up from No. 47 overall to No. 42.

Wentz lasted just a year in Indianapolis

Wentz, 29, lasted just one year in Indianapolis with Frank Reich and the Colts. His numbers weren’t bad in 2021. He threw for 3,563 yards with 27 touchdowns and 7 interceptions, but floundered down the stretch and the Colts’ brass has been non-committal all offseason.

What GM Chris Ballard said on this

“Ultimately, you have to have a guy you believe in and can win with, That will play some into it but ultimately we’ll make the decision we think is best both in the short and the long-term.”

When Wentz appeared to be a budding star in the NFL

There was a time not that long ago when Wentz appeared to be a budding star in the NFL. He was great in 2017, putting together an MVP-level season in his second year in the league before tearing his ACL in December in LA. He then watched Nick Foles lead his team to a Super Bowl run and parade and his career really never recovered since then.
