A few days ago, the Eagles and Colts have agreed to a trade sending QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis in exchange for a 2021 third and a conditional 2022 second.
Wentz has since hopped on a plane and head to Indy while texting his new teammetes even though the trade won’t become oficial until mid-March.
Wentz still hasn’t spoken publicly on what went wrong in Philly, but he did take a moment to acknowledge all the “memories and relationships” from the past five years in a fitting tribute.
More than anything, I will miss my teammates. Thank you. I appreciate every one of you and will never forget the relationships and
memories made over the years. So many lifelong relationships have been formed in that locker room. Thank you for the fellowship, the camaraderie in the locker room, and the daily battles out on the practice field!
To the City of Philadelphia—Thank you. You have been my home for the past five years. It has been everything a kid from Bismarck, North Dakota could have dreamed of. My family grew here, had a lot of fun, ate a lot of great food, got to be a part of an incredible church, and so many more memories off the field. On the field, we brought the Lombardi trophy home to Philly and hopefully brought a lot of joy to the city over the years. Thank you to the amazing Eagles fans across the World that have supported my family, our foundation, and our football team through all of the wins and losses. It was an honor to play in a city whose passion and love for their football team is unrivaled. Thank you for supporting my family and our AO1 foundation—we hope we have made a positive impact in the communities in Philly and look forward to continuing our efforts to impact the area!
Thank you to the Eagles organization for drafting me and making my NFL dream come true. Thank you Mr. Lurie, Howie Roseman & the Eagles front office, Coach Pederson & all of my coaches, our training staff, our equipment staff and all of the support staff at the Nova Care Complex. It has been an amazing journey and I wish you all the best.
As one chapter closes, another one begins. And I’m excited to join the Indianapolis Colts and look forward to the work ahead! God’s plan!

Wentz, who is a former first-round pick of the Eagles back in 2016, signed to a four-year, $128 million extension going into the 2019 season that included $107 million in guarantees.
Things fell apart in 2020 that saw him getting benched for rookie QB Jalen Hurts.
In 2020, Wentz has appeared in 12 games for the Eagles, passing for 2,620 yards, 16 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
