Carson Wentz is heading to Indianapolis to replace, the recently retired, Philip Rivers as the leader of the Colts offence. The Colts are sending a 2021 3rd round pick and a 2022 2nd round pick that could become a 1st rounder if Wentz plays 75% of the snaps or 70% of the snaps and the Colts make the playoffs. There have been major concerns about Wentz ability to lead, his attitude and his mechanics but the Colts are really only a QB away from making a serious run at the Super Bowl.
The Colts are in a great position with their cap situation even though the floor is now just $180 million for 2021, have an outstanding defence and an offence with a lot of young playmakers. If Frank Reich can work with Wentz to get him back to his MVP form of a few years ago, this could be enough to propel them to a ring. On the other side of this deal, the Eagles were the last team to have a QB from 2010 to 2016 that was drafted in the first round still on the original team. Philly will now eat $30 million of dead cap room to move on from Wentz and hope that the Colts can revitalise him to reap in that 1st rounder.
