Carson Wentz is the latest quarterback on the trade market, as relayed by OutKick’s Bobby Burack, and opposing teams are apparently on the prowl.
Per Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, the Philadelphia Eagles have begun fielding calls on a potential Wentz trade.
“The Eagles are not in a hurry to trade Wentz — and in fact as of now intend for him to return for 2021 under new coach Nick Sirianni — but they did field the calls and discussed the issue,” per the report. “GM Howie Roseman will almost always listen, and this is no different.”
It’s not clear who may be interested, though the Indianapolis Colts have been linked to Wentz since the Colts need to replace Philip Rivers, who recently retired. The Houston Texans may also need a QB if the Deshaun Watson trade rumors actually become reality.
Wentz has not requested a trade, but he may want out now that the Eagles have fired coach Doug Pederson. Wentz reportedly thought highly of Pederson.
“Wentz looked broken last season, yet he has previously shown star potential,” Burack wrote. “I’ve said all year that Ryan Tannehill’s career reset with the Titans changed the market value for both Wentz and Sam Darnold.”
Should Wentz return to the Eagles, he presumably would have to battle it out with Jalen Hurts for the starting job — a battle Hurts had won by the end of this past season. Still, after the season, Roseman built up Wentz and his important to the Eagles.
“When you have players like that, they are like fingers on your hands. You can’t even imagine that they are not a part of you, that they are not here,” Roseman said. “That’s how we feel about Carson.”

*Derrick Henry’s monster two years*
You get Wentz on the Colts with Johnathan Taylor you got something.
