    According to:

    Chris Mortensen - ESPN
    Sam Robinson - Pro Football Rumor
    With the preferred direction clear, the Eagles traded Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts in February 2021 for a third-round pick and a conditional second-round pick, which eventually turned into a first-rounder.

    Sounds like they wanted to trade Wentz...and did.

    Yeah they always preferred trading wentz. If they announced to everyone that they want to trade wentz, they probably would not have gotten a 1st and 3rd round pick for him. You never show your hand when trading a player. So obviously thereís gonna be some ďreportsĒ out there that are saying contradicting things, this is to prevent the value from plummeting. Wentz value was already low, you donít want to lower it even more by being honest about wanting to move on from him.

    Negotiations 101: donít act like you want to get rid of whatever you are selling. In fact, act like you want to keep it.

    There was so much speculation around the entire dynamic between Wentz, Doug, and the front office that I don't think anyone knows the entire truth.

    I donít think itís all on Hurts the balance of the Eagles offense keeps a lot of pressure off of Hurts he doesnít have to force throws heís taking the easiest read and executing it . You may not need more from him
