Carson Wentz Saga Marches On As Bears, Colts Get Grumpy

The Chicago Bears may want to trade for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, but it appears they aren’t willing to wait forever.

That’s the latest on the Eagles’ attempts to move Wetnz, via Mike Kaye of NJ.com.

“A person with knowledge of the Eagles’ negotiations — who was granted anonymity so he could speak freely on an impending trade — told NJ Advance Media the potential trade partners have remained ‘disciplined’ in negotiations, unwilling to meet the Eagles’ demands,” Kaye reported.

The Bears are just one supposed strong suitor for Wentz, with the Indianapolis Colts perhaps being the other. Wentz was once viewed as the Eagles’ franchise QB, but he lost his starting job to Jaylen Hurts at the end of the season.

As for the Colts, they too seem to be growing impatient with the Eagles and what they are seeking in return for Wentz.

“The Indianapolis Colts have asked for additional compensation — a player, players or picks — along with Wentz in order to get close to the Eagles’ demands, according to a third person with knowledge of negotiations, who also was granted anonymity,” Kaye wrote. “That person said another undisclosed Eagles player has been brought up in discussions.”

In other words, the Wentz drama doesn’t seem to be any closer to reaching its end. All we really know after all this is that the Eagles can’t really afford to bring Wentz back. Opposing teams understand this, and rather than give the Eagles the haul they’re seeking, they may just pull offers off the table.
