The Colts are reportedly trading quarterback Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders after just one season in Indianapolis, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
While Washington has acquired their franchise quarterback, Indianapolis is getting a package in return that includes a 2022 second-round pick and a pair of thirds in this year’s draft and next. The 2023 third rounder can become a second if Wentz plays 70% of the snaps next season.
The Commanders are also taking on Wentz’s entire $28 million salary for 2022, which also includes a $5 million roster bonus due next week.
Indianapolis acquired Wentz just a season ago for a conditional second-round selection that became a first and a third.
The former second-overall pick of Philadelphia threw for 3,563 yards and 27 touchdowns with just seven interceptions in 2021, but crumbled in Indianapolis’ must-win game against Jacksonville in Week 18.
