INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts traded QB Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders in exchange for draft picks Wednesday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the news.

According to Schefter, the Colts gave up Wentz and a 2022 second-round pick in exchange for a 2022 third-round pick, 2023 third-round pick, and a 2022 second-round pick.

Wentz spent just one year in Indianapolis after he was acquired via trade from the Philadelphia Eagles in March 2021. He started 17 games for Indy throwing for 3,563 yards, 27 TDs, and 7 interceptions. The Colts finished 9-8 and were primed for a playoff run before losing their last two games of the regular season leaving the QB’s future in doubt.

As a member of the Commanders, Wentz will play both his former teams next season. Washington plays the Eagles twice and comes to Indianapolis to play the Colts in 2022.
