See the report below:
Philadelphia has agreed to trade Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first, league sources tell @mortreport and me.

Some reactions to news:
Philadelphia also saves $10,000,000 on a roster bonus that they longer have to pay in the '21 league year and get out from under a $25,400,000 guarantee of his '21 base salary. Those savings are the real value for Philadelphia in this deal. https://t.co/C9PadEdpqn

This seems fair for both teams on first glance 🤷🏼♂️
Sure it might blow up in Indy’s face but losing a couple day two picks taking a swing on a guy with talent ain’t all bad. https://t.co/m3PFeyh0ng

I’m amazed Eagles even got this much to offload Wentz after that season and with that contract. https://t.co/mYfenHv0Wg

There it is. Wentz wanted Indy. Reich wanted Wentz. Eagles get a stab at a first round pick. https://t.co/rmK6YAhljF

This feels surprisingly like a win for everyone.
Indy didn’t spend too much, Philly got a decent return, considering how bad he was last year. And Wentz has a much better chance of succeeding with those coaches and that supporting cast.
Yay, that’s fun. https://t.co/dI2Sr1oNfK

Everybody will have an opinion in Chicago.
But mine is the best available quarterback for Bears just went elsewhere, at a pretty reasonable price. Colts GM Chris Ballard gets his guy.
For Ryan Pace, it’s onto Plan B. Or is it C? Or D, E & F? https://t.co/XxKx4gLp0T

Feels like a disappointing haul for Philly…guy is only three years removed from an MVP-like season https://t.co/lIKgyNSRVT

I've barely left the house the past two days because this thing has been on the verge of completion all week. Finally! https://t.co/qx57G1Ie7E

Man, Wentz really wanted nothing to do with the Bears, huh? https://t.co/j8S8qa0lkD

Carson Wentz has been statistically solid for three solid years of his career, but a dumpster fire in 2020.
We’ll see which Wentz Indy will get.
