Throwback: Wentz guides the Eagles to a win over the Colts

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Carson Wentz will be traded to the Indianapolis Colts in March once the new NFL league year starts on March 17th. In exchange, the Philadelphia Eagles will receive two draft picks.

The Colts hope that he’ll transform into the old Wentz before his torn ACL in December 2017. When Colts head coach Frank Reich was his offensive coordinator, he had the best season of his career before the ACL injury.
