The Eagles moved on from Carson Wentz, trading the quarterback to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick.

Per Mike Garafalo of NFL Media, the Eagles could get that first-round pick they were searching for if Wentz plays about 75% of the snaps in Indianapolis and or they get to the playoffs.

The better Wentz plays under Frank Reich, the better the compensation, and a late first-round pick holds value in regards to being compared to a mid to late second-round pick.
