A different person with direct knowledge of the move tells the AP that Washington is getting the 47th pick in the draft along with Wentz and sending Indianapolis Nos. 42 and 73 this year and a 2023 conditional third-rounder that can become a second based on Wentz’s playing time.
Wentz has three years remaining on his contract. The 2016 second overall pick of the Philadelphia Eagles spent just one season with Indianapolis.
