Wentz printed a lengthy article on his Instagram accounts one afternoon league sources told ESPN that he had been traded into the Indianapolis Colts to get a 2021 third-round draft pick and a conditional 2022 second-round select which could become a first-rounder.
The Eagles are very likely to flip into Jalen Hurts, even though they also mean to make competition because of him, because the beginning job isn't anticipated to automatically visit the now-second-year QB.
Trading Wentz marks the conclusion of an abrupt chapter and year using the Eagles. He moved out of a former MVP candidate to backing up Hurts -- a rookie second-round select in 2020 -- his connection with former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson disintegrated.
Wentz desired from Philadelphia although the Eagles hired former Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as their new head coach.
Reich, who was Indianapolis' head coach the previous 3 decades, was Philadelphia's offensive coordinator for Wentz's first two NFL seasons in 2016 and'17. With Reich in the helm, Wentz will take the reins of a Colts attack which ranked 10th in the NFL in total offense and ninth in scoring last year.
