The NFL world is watching as the Philadelphia Eagles are seemingly get close to a Carson Wentz trade. Despite teams bowing out, the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears are rumored to be the franchises most interested in acquiring Wentz.
News of the Colts' reported package for Wentz surfaced earlier this week, but one mystery team is teasing that they've made an even better offer.
Indianapolis has reportedly offered two second-round picks and possibly a future third- or fourth-round pick. This offer was described as the Colts' "best" offer so far, but this mystery team is saying they've offered better.
Now, it's unclear who this team is or what they've put on the table. It could be the Eagles trying to get Indy to up their offer, or a suitor like the Bears putting pressure on Philadelphia. It may even be the Colts themselves playing mind tricks with other teams hoping to land Wentz.
Whoever it is, it's clear there are some trade tactics currently being used. Someone wants the other to be happy with what they're offering, or one party is trying to put pressure on another. It comes with the territory of a high-level deal involving someone like Wentz.
It'll be fascinating to see how the Wentz trade saga ends, either with one of the two frontrunners or a team out of left field landing the QB.
