Carson Wentz Mocked Over Leaked Text After Colts Trade

Carson Wentz Mocked Over Leaked Text After Colts Trade

The Philadelphia Eagles traded Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2021 third-rounder and a conditional 2022 second-rounder that could turn into a first round draft pick.

It wasn’t quite the haul Philly was probably looking for, but in making this move the organization can effectively close the book on at least one self-inflicted wound from this past year.

Wentz had a rough 2020 campaign. From the very beginning, angry Eagles fans berated him, recently departed head coach Doug Pederson openly despised him, and he was ultimately replaced as a starter by a rookie who probably would’ve been better served getting a year of tutelage on the bench.

Although some of Wentz’s Eagles teammates vocally supported him, for the most part nobody really gave him much love in a city supposedly known for it.

Trading Wentz to the Colts permitted Philly to move forward and gave Indianapolis a competent Philip Rivers replacement to oversee the offense.

Wentz, for his part, is eager to make things work with his new team. So much so, in fact, that he eagerly began reaching out to his new teammates.

With Twitter being Twitter, though, some folks couldn’t help but notice how Wentz texts. That in turn led to a bit of roasting.

This past season Wentz ranked 34th in the league in completion percentage, plus first in both interceptions and sacks. Most attribute it to him being absolutely petrified of Jalen Hurts, but some of it likely had to do with how injury-plagued the Eagles were.

If Wentz can fix what ailed him in 2020 and get back to being the MVP-caliber player he once was, his texting style will become much less funny and he’ll immediately return to being one of the league’s more respected quarterbacks.
