Sources said Washington leaders are trading with Indianapolis Colts Carson Wentz

Indianapolis – The Colts are trading a quarterback Carson Wentz to Washington leaders for a batch of the footage, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Sources told Shifter that the Colts will receive the leaders’ third-round draft pick in 2022 and 2023. A 2023 third-round player could become a second-round pick if Wentz plays 70% of Washington’s strokes. The teams also exchanged second-round selections in 2022, with the Colts team moving from 47th overall to 42nd.

Shifter’s sources have told Washington that Washington will pay the full $28 million owed to Wentz for the 2022 season, which includes an existing $5 million bonus coming next week.

The deal comes one week after captains general manager Martin Mayhew said the team “passed the league effectively” to find the midfielder. Washington has started 32 quarterbacks since it last won the Super Bowl after the 1991 season, including eight in the past three years.

Wentz spent one season as the Colts captain after giving Indianapolis his first and third-round picks for the Philadelphia Eagles in February 2021. It was an attempt to find the next quarterback after Phillip Rivers retired after the 2020 season.

Wentz is No. 2 overall in the 2016 draft, throwing 27 touchdown passes and linking his career to a low level in ball interceptions with seven assists last season.

“I’d like to quit first aid,” Colts General Manager Chris Ballard said in January. “I would like Carson to be the long-term answer or find someone who will be here for the next 10 to 12 years. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out like that. I can dream about it, I hope, I do everything I can to figure it out, but you do your best.” Your best effort is what you can do in that time.”

Wentz completed 59% of his passes, threw two touchdown passes and lost twice to the Las Vegas Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars to close out the season. He shot at least 200 yards in only two of his last eight games. In the surprise loss to Jaguar at the end of the season, Wentz averaged a low 4.3 QBR.

Wentz has been heading to his third team in the past three seasons and will face both previous teams in 2022.
