A couple of days ago, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that the Eagles have yet to receive an offer that they feel is “fair” for their quarterback.
Fair likely means a 1st-round pick or several of them.
On Saturday, Ron Jaworski reported the Indianapolis Colts have offered “two 2nd-round draft picks” to obtain Wentz and that is the best offer he has heard from any team. That means no team in the league is offering the Eagles a 1st-round pick.
Wentz appeared in 12 games for the Eagles last season, with 2,620 passing yards and 16 touchdowns. He also threw a career high 15 interceptions, and was eventually benched for rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts.
The quarterback’s cap hit is $34.7 million for the 2021 season, and his four-year contract comes with nearly $108 million in guaranteed money.
If Wentz is on a team’s roster after March 19, $15 million of his 2022 salary becomes fully guaranteed, according to Spotrac.
