Teams asking about Wentz

Recommended Posts

Heard on NFLN this morning that the QB carousel continues to spin and the latest name being thrown out there is Carson Wentz.  A lot of folks think that the hiring of Nick Sirriani meant that Wentz was likely to stay, but who knows.

 

I am going to throw out a dark horse here.... New Orleans.

 

Saints claim that Winston is "in the conversation" and we all know how much they "love" Hill, but I think Sean Payton would welcome a talent like Wentz into the room.  

 

I dunno, just a thought.

He'd be way better off there.

I agree, it's looking more and more that he needs a fresh start. The Coaches aren't commiting to anything. I just don't know how it's going to happen with all the dead money involved. They'd have to get a ton for Wentz for it to make any sense for them.

With Trey Hendrickson exploding for the Saints, one time hot prospect Marcus Davenport could be available.  Eagles love their stud DL and he needs a fresh start himself.

That's true, Roseman is a sucker for Defensive Lineman. Any DBs laying around?

I think the Saints are blessed with some depth there too.  

 

@rajncajn is my theory crazy?

I'm a Wentz fan and still think he has a ton of football left in him. But dam, I'd have a hard time passing up a first rounder if they can get it, especially if they are in full rebuild mode. I'm still not sure how the dead money is going to work though. Sometimes it's cheaper to keep her.

Not at all. there's been some discussion on the boards about other QBs & possible trade prospects. Davenport has woefully underperformed though, so I don't know how much value he still holds. Winston is also a free agent, so he wouldn't be included in a trade. Honestly, I think it's mutually beneficial if Winston stays put and I think he starts for us next year. I would personally much rather have Wentz, I just don't see anything happening with the Saints though given the bar that's been set with the Stafford trade.

Don't know how reliable this guy is. Could just be a rumor.

 

Wentz to Chicago? :o

A Colts landing would make me feel a little more hopeful about my RFA $ investment in Wentz last offseason for my QB-less dynasty team.  Wentz going to Chicago would be a disaster for both sides.

I'll be pissed if it's not at least a first round pick

Ouch! That's gonna suck. 

 

"The Eagles would incur an NFL-record $33.8 million dead cap charge if they traded Wentz, but their cap picture beyond 2021 would look much better than it looks now, and Wentz’s cost to the acquiring team wouldn’t be terribly expensive for a starting QB. The new team could opt out after two more years and about $47.4 million".

I would love if he got traded. I have both of them in my dynasty league

Maybe they could swap DL's Davenport and Barnett in the deal.  Both have sucked and could use a "fresh start." 

 

Hell, now that I think of it, let's throw in Tre'Quan Smith while we're at it.  That dude is about to win the annual "Jermichael Finley" (about to break out) award for about the third year running.  :lol:

Get ready to see Wentz in a Colts' uni.  Speculating.

Yeah, it's looking more and more inevitable.

If Roseman thinks he can get anything remotely CLOSE to what Detroit got for Stafford, he's been smok'n some serious crack. He'll be LUCKY to get 1 1st. Personally, I like Wentz but it's clear he's not wanted in Philly.

They'll get at least a 1 for him. Especially since the team taking his contract will owe NO guaranteed money and can release him at anytime. The Eagles will be eating all the dead money. That alone will cost someone's a first rounder.

Report: #Bears among teams expressing interest in Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who's expected to be traded in the next week

Supposedly, Chicago has put together one of the best offers and is the likely destination and it could be announced right after the SB.
