The lame-asses in the local media tried to convince you that the Eagles are happy with the trade of Carson Wentz:
A 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 conditional second-round pick to the Eagles in exchange for the services of Wentz.
As underwhelming as the Colts’ trade package turned out to be, the Eagles had no other choice but to accept the assets in order to finally turn over a new leaf heading to the 2021 season.
Now they are having seller’s remorse:
“Not thrilled,” said ESPN’s Tim McManus. “They recognize the return they got versus what they invested in [Wentz] does not match up. The reality is they were selling at a low point.”
“There was one team really hot after him because of Frank Reich’s connection to Wentz, and that was the Colts,” McManus added. “So I don’t think the Eagles wake up happy to this, but they recognize it was fair market value – all things considered.”
Wentz is joining forces with former Eagles offensive coordinator in Frank Reich, who is serving as the head coach of the Colts. The two individuals previously worked together in 2016 and 2017, which was bannered by Philly’s Super Bowl LII win over the New England Patriots.
With a more complete cast in Indianapolis, Reich is seeking to turn to Wentz to lead the team’s bid to return to the championship stage. At this point, it is still too early to say who got the better end of the deal, but the Colts might hit a home run if they can manage to bring Carson Wentz back on the right track moving forward.
