Washington Commanders Trade for QB Carson Wentz

The Washington Commanders have found their new starting quarterback. ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported the following trade terms:

Colts get:
2022 third-round pick
2023 third-round pick that can become a second if Carson Wentz plays 70 percent of plays.
2022 second-round pick

Commanders get:
QB Carson Wentz
2022 second-round pick.

The 29 year old quarterback was drafted by the Philadephia Eagles with the 2nd pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. He played for the Eagles for five seasons before the Indianapolis Colts traded a 1st round pick for him last year. He went 9-8 with 28 total touchdowns and just 7 inteceptions.

Per the CommandersFBnews instagram, here’s why this is a better move than some would think:

• He is 44-40-1 as a starter and has thrown 140 touchdowns compared to just 57 interceptions. Has also rushed for 9 additional touchdowns.

• A lot of people will say he’s injury prone, and while he has been hurt and has missed games, he has still started 85 out of a possible 97 games in his 6 seasons in the league.

• His two worst years were his rookie season in 2016 and his last year in Philly in 2020 (a combined 10-17-1 record with 32 TDS and 29 INTs). His other 4 seasons, including last year: 34-23 record, 108 TDs and 28 INTs.

• Last season he threw for 27 TDs with just 7 INTs and ran 1 in.

• McLaurin would arguably be the best receiver he’s ever played with
