The Carson Wentz trade saga is over and the Eagles didn't get the high asking price they wanted for the former #2 overall pick. Wentz will go to the Indianapolis Colts to be reunited with Head Coach Frank Reich who was his OC in Philly. The Eagles will get a 3rd round pick this year and a 2nd next year that could turn into a 1st if Wentz plays 75% of the snaps or 70% and the team makes the playoffs.

Philly reportedly wanted at least a 1st this year plus more compensation to move Wentz. That did not happen. Jalen Hurts now takes full control of the Eagles offense under new Head Coach Nick Sirianni. Doug Peterson, the only Head Coach to ever lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl win, was fired after the disastrous 2020 season.
