Chris Mortensen from ESPN made a shocking report the other day when he said it is possible the Colts trade or release Carson Wentz before March 19th.
“For Carson Wentz and the Indianapolis Colts, it looks bleak,” Mortensen said on ESPN on Sunday. “Yes, the Colts did not give him support verbally after the season. Said that they weren’t guaranteeing him anything. Well, right now, it looks bleak. … So, for Carson Wentz and the Colts, it looks like it was a one-year marriage that went wrong.”
Wentz was traded to the Colts during the 2021 season. Wentz had signed a four year deal while playing for the Eagles worth 128 million dollars. Even though the Colts could lose money, Mort believes they would be willing to eat those loses, because they would technically gain some money as well. By releasing Wentz they would save 13.3 million dollars.
If this happens, who will end up being the quarterback in Indianapolis?
