Roseman Wins! Looks Like Eagles Win Trade with Colts
It appears there will be clear winner in the Eagles trade with Indianapolis, involving Carson Wentz last offseason.
The Eagles acquired a first-round pick, along with a third-round pick in last year's draft in exchange for Wentz. Philadelphia used the extra third-round pick to move in the draft to select DeVonta Smith.
The Eagles made the playoffs, the Colts did not and now seem ready to move on from Wentz per ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
"For Carson Wentz and the Indianapolis Colts, it looks bleak," Mortensen stated. "By March 18 he will probably be traded or released."
Wentz's $15 million salary becomes guaranteed on that date, making it look like the end of the road for Wentz and in Indianapolis.
Wentz had a mediocre season with the Colts, completing 62.4% of his passes, for 3,563 yards, 27 touchdowns, seven interceptions, going 9-8 this year.
Meanwhile, Howie Roseman and Eagles will make the Colts first-round selection, No. 16 overall and the Colts will be looking for another quarterback.
Maybe the Eagles can interest them in Gardner Minshew or one of the players in this years draft?
