Trade terms, per sources…
🏈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
🏈QB Carson Wentz
🏈2022 second-round pick.

Wentz is an incredibly talented quarterback, but he has dealt with some injury issues in the past.
Last season, he played in 17 games and finished the year with 3,563 passing yards and 27 passing touchdowns. He also threw seven interceptions.
He’ll look to improve upon those numbers with his new team. With Wentz under center, the Commanders will certainly look to compete for a playoff spot next season and beyond. The team was able to make it to the postseason during the 2020 campaign, but it didn’t reach the playoffs last season.
