There have been multiple reports that quarterback Carson Wentz is only interested in being traded to the Indianapolis Colts. If the reports are anywhere close to being true, the Philadelphia Eagles need to figure out a way to make this happen as quickly as possible.
In what could be the quickest relationship breakdown in sports history, the one-time ‘savior’ of the Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz, seems to have one foot out of the door. While it almost seems unreal, it also looks like general manager Howie Roseman is more than willing to oblige the North Dakota product.
Regardless of who’s right or wrong, the only thing that seems to be true at this point is both Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles need a fresh start. That’s where Frank Reich and the Indianapolis Colts come in. When you stand back and look at both sides, this seems like a match made in Heaven, as Wentz is a giant fan of Reich’s, and the Eagles need draft capital.
We at ITI studied both sides of a possible trade equation and found a way to fix things. With all of that being said, here’s an idea that could help both parties and remedy this disaster that has been the Carson Wentz saga.
Here’s a quick fix that solves the Philadelphia Eagles’ problems.
Okay, so here goes nothing. The Philadelphia Eagles send quarterback Carson Wentz, a fifth-round pick in 2021, and a 2022 fifth-round pick to the Indianapolis Colts. In return, Reich and company send their first-round pick (20), a 2021 third-round pick (84), a 2022 third-round pick, and linebacker Anthony Walker.
In this scenario, both the Eagles and Colts get a king’s ransom and come out as winners, which is a rarity in today’s NFL. The Colts get their franchise quarterback of the future, and the Philadelphia Eagles get draft capital on top of a linebacker that can strengthen the middle of their defense.
