Colts receiver Michael Pittman reportedly received a call from Carson Wentz about giving up wearing No. 11 so that the new quarterback can wear it. Well apparently Pittman was having none of it and told Wentz it’s not happening.
From the sounds of things, it wasn’t a heated exchange, but it’s still funny because Wentz isn’t in any position to start asking for number changes.
#Colts WR Michael Pittman told TMZ he won’t give up his #11 to Carson Wentz: “He saw how locked in I was to 11, and he was like, ‘That’s cool, bro, I’m probably gonna switch anyway.'”— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) February 22, 2021
Anything that could change that? “I’m 11. I don’t think there’s any deal that’s gonna be done.”
Wentz switching numbers might actually be the full change of scenery he needs, right? Anything the former No. 2 overall pick can do to forget his time in Philly would probably be for the best.
Welcome to Indy, Carson. Number 12 is open.
