The Philadelphia Eagles and Carson Wentz drama is finally over.

As time went on, it became obvious that the Birds had no other choice than to trade Carson Wentz, and he landed with none other than Frank Reich and the Indianapolis Colts. What surprise right?

The same organization Philly acquired Nick Sirianni from to keep Carson from leaving is where he’ll now be playing. Well, all hope wasn’t lost. Philly would most certainly get a great return from the Colts for Wentz, right? Nope, they didn’t do that either.

In return for Wentz, the Eagles received a 2021 third-round selection, a 2022 conditional second-round pick, and a 35-million dollar overdraft fee. Here’s the good news. That second-rounder that the Birds acquired could become a first-rounder if certain conditions are met.

That means that Carson Wentz has to play 75 percent of the snaps or 70 percent of the snaps as long as the Colts earn a playoff berth in 2021. That should be easy considering 11’s been pretty healthy and the Colts have made the playoffs without him.
