The Carson Wentz ready recreation is lastly over. Wentz has been traded to the Indianapolis Colts, the place he will probably be reunited together with his former offensive coordinator Frank Reich. And identical to that, “Wentzylvania” is not any extra.
Finally, we will put this to mattress. This has at all times been my ultimate touchdown spot for Wentz, as I beforehand wrote:
The Colts are my favourite spot for Wentz, and it makes an excessive amount of sense. Frank Reich is the Colts’ head coach, and was the offensive coordinator for Wentz throughout his MVP-caliper 2017 rookie season. They have loads of cap room, a evident want at quarterback, a stable offensive line, a terrific run recreation (Jonathan Taylor is bae), a really stable protection. It’s the good setting for Wentz to regain his type. If the Colts suppose Wentz nonetheless has the top-tier upside that he confirmed early in his profession, they could possibly be suitor.
I’m past thrilled for each events. The Eagles now will formally flip the reins over to second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts, who confirmed flashes of brilliance throughout his 2020 rookie season. The Colts get a quarterback that I really consider has the capabilities of regaining elite type in that ecosystem, and they’re now instantly poised for a playoff run.
I like it when a plan comes collectively. The Colts now will look to prioritize the vast receiver place to give Wentz some toys to play with. Second-year vast receiver Michael Pittman Jr. will probably be in a terrific place to step ahead in the offense, however he wants some operating mates. In a draft class loaded at the vast receiver place (DeVonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle, Tylan Wallace, and so forth), and with a free company group that includes some very gifted receivers (Chris Godwin, Allen Robinson), they’ll doubtless make some acquisitions.
Now all that’s left for Wentz to do is show he’s really good.
