NFL analyst thinks Carson Wentz trade a huge mistake

What were the commanders in Washington thinking?

They could have traded for other quarterbacks or signed free agents, but opted to go with Carson Wentz.

With the move, the former North Dakota State star player will return to the NFC East.

However, there is no indication that he will solve Washington’s problems under center.

It would have been better if the COs stayed with Taylor Heinicke instead of trading for Wentz.

Didn’t they see how Wentz fared in two games that could have given the Indianapolis Colts a playoff berth?

That’s why this trade doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, including former NFL player and current podcaster Ross Tucker.

Tucker tweeted, “If Frank Reich is willing to trade Carson Wentz even though his team doesn’t have a starting QB, you PROBABLY shouldn’t give up two third-round picks for the right to pay him $28M+ this season. ”

Yes, GM Chris Ballard always has the final say on personnel decisions.

But if Reich really wanted Wentz, he could have fought hard for him.

Instead, they decided it might be someone else’s problem and the one they get will be better anyway.

Colts options at quarterback

Luckily for Indianapolis, the market isn’t completely dry yet.

However, it looks like they will get a free agent quarterback or trade one, as well as one of the 2022 NFL Draft prospects.

The assortment of picks they received from Washington gives them the power to trade and get someone like Malik Willis, Sam Howell, or Kenny Pickett.

But while these players will be their favorite project, they also have the cap space to sign someone like Mitchell Trubisky, Jimmy Garoppolo or Jameis Winston.

Either way, they would have filled the void left by Wentz.
