Colts And Commanders Complete Trade

The Indianapolis Colts have traded Carson Wentz and their 2022 second-round pick to the Washington Commanders for a 2022 third-round, conditional 2023 third-round pick, and 2022 second-round pick. 

The 2023 third-round pick will turn into another second if Wentz plays in 70% of the team's plays. 

Wentz has been in the rumor mill all offseason, as the Colts were expected to be looking for an upgrade at the quarterback position. Now, with the 29-year-old officially set to join Washington, we have confirmation that they are planning to do just that. 

Just last March, the Colts acquired Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles for their 2022 first-round pick and a 2021 third-round pick. Needless to say, they gave up far more to acquire him than what they are getting to trade him. 

In 17 starts with the Colts last season, Wentz threw 27 touchdowns, seven interceptions, and 3.563 yards. With that, he sported a 9-8 record as their starter. Overall, it actually was a bounce-back campaign for him, but it still wasn't enough for him to keep his job with the Colts in 2022. Yet, he will now be looking to carry over this momentum to the Commanders from here.
