Wentz traded to the Colts for 2021 3rd Rounder and conditional 2022 2nd Rounder


Recommended Posts

Colts plan has been that they’re re only guaranteeing the first 2 years on Wentz’s contract and will cut him loose if he isn’t the answer. In the meantime Jacob Eason could be developed to take over once that happens. That being Eason’s last year of his rookie deal

as opposed to the polished prospects that will be around in rounds 4-7 in this draft?

I’m not following? If Wentz flames out they atleast have someone who they’ve been grooming for 2 years atleast who has all the tools just needs time. (From what I’ve read)

according to spotrac, philly eats a ton of dead money - meaning the dead cap for the colts is extremely minimal after 2021

If he doesn't pan out, they are not burdened with the contract

I like it

Indy takes on 4/98M, and only 2021 is guaranteed (15M of 2022 though guarantees March 19 this year, so practically, 2022 is on the books too).

Philly saves no money this year, but saves on 24M of cap space in 2022.   

Philly needed this way more than Indy.  In that respect, Roseman really deserves credit here, he sure looks like he got max value on this trade, given the escalator.

So basically it'll be a 3rd this year & a 2nd next year, cause Wentz will be injured by week 10.

I give the win to Philly on this trade. Wentz is cooked physically & probably mentally as well.

I don't know who will win the AFC South next season.

But I can tell you, who it isn't going to be.

My understanding is that the contract gets a lot easier to get out of after 2022. So they're essentially committing to Wentz for 2 years at a minimum, but will be able to move on from there if he can't get back on track.

Well. Frank Reich has his guy. Let's see if he's able to get Wentz back on track.

Ballard has done well here. We aren't hamstrung by this deal at all.

then we're in agreement. I'm just saying that "raw prospect" is the best they're going to do with the draft capital they have to use on a QB, so it only makes sense for Eason to be that guy as opposed to drafting someone new.
