Philadelphia Eagles agree to trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts

Carson Wentz has a new home.

And the Philadelphia Eagles have parted with their one-time franchise quarterback.

After months of speculation, the Eagles have agreed to trade Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts, a person with direct knowledge of the deal told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday. The person requested anonymity because the deal had not yet been officially announced. ESPN was first to report the deal.

The Eagles will collect a 2021 third-round draft pick and conditional 2022 second-round pick, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. If Wentz plays at least 75% of offensive snaps for the Colts, the 2022 selection bumps to Indianapolis’ first-round selection.

The divorce comes after a rocky 2020 season in which Wentz won just three of 12 starts and ultimately was demoted in favor of rookie Jalen Hurts.
