RUMOR: The best Carson Wentz trade offer on the table right now for Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles look to be holding out for a first-round draft choice in discussions with teams regarding quarterback Carson Wentz.
Jaworski stated the Colts have offered a pair of second-round draft picks, and possibly a third- or fourth-rounder as well:
“My understanding is that the Colts have offered 2 – 2nd round draft choices, maybe a 3rd or 4th down the road,” Jaworski said, via Skversky. “That appears to be the best offer I have heard.”
Schefter had also reported over the weekend a Wentz trade was fairly imminent, but nothing has developed as of yet.

Eagles are expected to trade Carson Wentz in the coming days in what would be the latest blockbuster QB deal to rock the NFL, sources tell @mortreport and me. The most pertinent questions now become where, when and for what. But it could happen as early as this week.

There was a report last Saturday suggesting the Eagles were “close” to a deal with the Chicago Bears, one that included a first-round draft pick in addition to running back Tarik Cohen and former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.
Name I’m hearing is Tarik Cohen, a first rounder and yes world, Nick Foles. https://t.co/dEsK5N8oV8

However, the Bears might be pulling back if the Eagles’ “best offer” does not actually include a first-rounder.
It almost seems like this is turning into a staring contest where all the teams involved are waiting to see who blinks first. The Eagles might be intent on getting first-round compensation, but it is unlikely Colts general manager Chris Ballard is willing to pay that price.
