Just before the stroke of noon on Thursday, reports started to circulate that the Eagles had agreed to trade quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts. Here are the terms, according to several media reports: The Eagles acquired a 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 conditional first-round pick from the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for quarterback Carson Wentz.
Any trade cannot be officially announced until the start of the 2021 league year on March 17. No team officials can comment about any deals until that time as well. If the trade becomes official, the Eagles will have eight picks in the 2021 NFL Draft, with four in the first three rounds including the sixth overall pick. The Eagles potentially could obtain additional compensatory picks for the loss of free agents that will be announced by the league at a later date. The 2021 NFL Draft is scheduled to begin April 29 through May 1.
According to the reports, the Colts' 2022 first-round pick will belong to Philadelphia as long as one of two conditions are met – Wentz plays 75 percent of the Colts' offensive snaps in 2021 or Wentz plays 70 percent of the Colts' offensive snaps and Indianapolis makes the playoffs.
