When talking just a few skill Carson Wentz change, basically the most rational landing speak is Indianapolis.
The Colts desire a quarterback after Philip Rivers’ retirement. And Frank Reich is the head coach for the Colts, who also brought in Press Taylor this offseason.
And the Eagles and Colts hold already had discussions, in step with a anecdote.
“I attain know that the Eagles hold had conversations with the Indianapolis Colts already,” NFL Community’s Mike Garafolo mentioned on the WIP Morning Demonstrate Friday.
Of course, that would not mean one thing is forthcoming.
Colts GM Chris Ballard on @dandakich: “There might be not any change occurring factual now. No longer this day. No longer the Colts.”

An NFL Community anecdote surfaced on Thursday that while Wentz has not but officially requested a change out of Philadelphia, the Eagles hold fielded calls concerning the 28-year-weak quarterback.
Meanwhile, an ESPN anecdote from Tim McManus, claims the Eagles hold already bought “aggressive offers” for Wentz.
All this comes a couple days after ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned that Wentz “wants to switch away the franchise.”
So that there’s lots of smoke spherical a skill Wentz change. Wentz very particularly hasn’t spoken publicly since Dec. 6, the day he became benched in favor of Jalen Hurts. While you happen to’re finding out into Wentz’s silence over the final couple months, you’re not alone.
The relationship between Wentz and the Eagles is clearly strained and the study has been whether or not it’s strained to the point of being irreparable.
In fresh days, experiences hold framed it as if GM Howie Roseman isn’t necessarily looking out out for to change Wentz but is ecstatic to listen to to offers and is waiting to be blown away. But this also seems esteem a neat tactic by Roseman, who will happily let a market materialize past the one which would attain so naturally. In consequence of if both aspect (Wentz or the Eagles) thinks the relationship isn’t repairable, then the Eagles will feel rigidity to change Wentz.
There are lots of possible landing spots for Wentz — as Garafolo pointed out, there are a series of groups who desire a QB — and I peep at some of them right here.
On the head of the checklist — and slightly a lot each and every checklist — is the Colts. But Garafolo gave a minute bit extra perception into that particular person change destination.
“Here’s the article concerning the Colts and right here is why they never were in actual fact strongly within the working for Matthew Stafford: These guys are actually factual at what they attain draft-wise,” he mentioned. “They imagine in themselves, so each and every interact that they deal away, they mediate to themselves, ‘Wow, I factual dealt away a factual player.’ Whereas some GMs might possibly possibly well issue, ‘Eh, what, I might possibly possibly well moreover hold neglected on that interact anyway.’ These guys imagine that they’re going to hit on each and every single one, so what they attain is they’re a minute bit late-taking part in by formula of those draft picks in trades.”
While you happen to’re wondering, the Colts retain the No. 21 interact within the well-known spherical this year and the No. 54 interact within the 2nd spherical. Obviously a mountainous dissimilarity by formula of payment. (They also hold No. 85 within the third spherical.)
The Eagles will clearly desire a first-spherical interact for Wentz, but groups are not going to favor to give out a first. This is where the Eagles favor to hope just a few groups are in Wentz to resolve the price.
