Colts expected to move on from Carson Wentz this offseason
After an embarrassing end to their 2021 season, the Indianapolis Colts are expected to move on from Carson Wentz this offseason.
According to Chris Mortensen, Wentz’s future in Indy looks bleak, and he will probably be moved before March 15th. After that date, $15 million of his base salary becomes guaranteed.
The former Eagles quarterback was shipped to the Colts this past offseason for their first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
In a must-win game to secure a playoff bid, Wentz threw for 185 yards and was sacked six times in an 11-26 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Meanwhile, the Eagles made the playoffs with Jalen Hurts under center and secured another first-round pick in the process.
Wentz could find himself another starting job elsewhere, but that doesn’t seem likely at this point. He has now failed miserably in two cities and could be a high-end backup elsewhere in the NFL.
Following their Week 18 loss, former Eagles OC Frank Reich didn’t sound too certain about Wentz being their future at quarterback, saying this.
The Eagles will likely explore the market this offseason as well, with names like Russell Wilson and Kyler Murray potentially being available.
