How Should Cowboys Fans Feel About The Carson Wentz Trade?

Player movement across all professional sports is at an all time high, and the NFL is no different. Former pick was the latest to change teams this week, getting traded from the Eagles to the Colts for an astonishingly low price.

Wentz was once thought of as the next great quarterback in the East, but he fell off fast due to , poor play, and a subpar supporting cast. Now Wentz moves onto Indianapolis looking to revitalize his career. But what does this mean for the Cowboys?
