And like that, the Carson Wentz era in Indianapolis is over.
The Colts traded him back into the NFC East to the newly-minted Washington Commanders for a package of draft picks and with Washington assuming all of Wentz's contract, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
This means the Eagles will see Wentz twice in 2022, and the immediate reaction that has been...something.
Here's a look at what fans and media are saying:

Carson Wentz is a pyramid scheme. Washington is in Indy’s down line.— Steven Ruiz (@theStevenRuiz) March 9, 2022

I wish Carson Wentz the best (well, not against the Eagles). But if Doug Pederson and then Frank Reich gave up on him, it's hard to see how he's going to succeed with a hellhole franchise like Washington. https://t.co/gWjkMFBixM— Glen Macnow (@RealGlenMacnow) March 9, 2022
If Frank Reich of all people is willing to trade Carson Wentz even though his team doesn’t have a starting QB you PROBABLY shouldn’t give up two third round picks for the right to pay him $28M+ this season. 🤔— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) March 9, 2022
Howie Roseman getting what ended up being a first-round pick for Carson Wentz a year ago is an all-time fleecing.— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaroNBCS) March 9, 2022
