Carson Wentz is all the rage and on the heels of Super Bowl 55, rumors of the Eagles quarterback getting traded are heating up.

Wentz has his best success with Frank Reich on the staff, so the Colts would be an obvious destination if the Eagles pulled the trigger.

Colts head coach Frank Reich used to be the Eagles’ offensive coordinator, so the Colts come up often when there’s talk about where Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz might go in a trade.

During an appearance on The Dan Dakich Show Friday, Colts General Manager Chris Ballard was asked about the rumors of interest in possibly acquiring Wentz.

“We are exploring lots of options . . . I can tell you this, there’s no trade going down today,” Ballard said, via Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan.

The Colts had an interest in acquiring Matthew Stafford before he was traded to the Rams and Wentz may not be their only option at the position.

The Colts currently only have Jacob Eason under contract for 2021 at quarterback, so there will be a move made on their part, it’s just uncertain that it’ll involve Wentz and the Eagles.
