Colts: Carson Wentz appearing on Pat McAfee Show is a must-watch for fans
The Indianapolis Colts have been one of the most discussed teams in the NFL during the first week of free agency, and not for the reasons you might think.
Despite having close to $40 million in cap space at their disposal, the Colts have largely been spectators as numerous contenders around the league continue to upgrade their respective rosters.
In response, fans have taken to social media in bunches to convey their despondency.
Luckily for the front office, these tempers simmered a bit when Indy officially announced the Carson Wentz trade this week following the start of the new league year.
Putting aside the fact that the Colts didn’t allow Philadelphia media to ask questions during his introductory press conference, Wentz seemed to push all the right buttons with reporters.
As smoothly as that presser went, however, fans were probably hoping to see a more relaxed version of Wentz, who was understandably political with most of his answers. Well, the former No. 2 overall pick was just that during a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee Show.
Colts quarterback Carson Wentz’s appearance on the Pat McAfee show this week is a must-watch for fans.
For as much as Wentz and McAfee laughed and joked during the 35-minute interview, it actually offered some valuable insight into the quarterback’s falling out in Philly. For starters, he revealed that he and his agent first started considering potential trade destinations shortly after he was benched against the Packers in Week 13, which is pretty wild when you think about it.
Perhaps the highlight of the segment came when Wentz informed McAfee that he didn’t forget what the former Colts punter previously said about him. For those who forget, McAfee was openly endorsing the team to trade for either Matthew Stafford or Aaron Rodgers, failing to mention Wentz as a potential target.
McAfee didn’t necessarily walk back his comments, but he was quick to acknowledge that Wentz’s forgettable season under center with the Eagles played a role in his thought process. How could it not? When all was said and done, however, McAfee unleashed a tweet that perfectly surmises where he stands with the Colts’ quarterback.
We don’t want to spoil everything that was said in the interview, but Colts fans will absolutely love hearing that Wentz recently enjoyed lunch with center Ryan Kelly and tight end Jack Doyle, both of whom will play major roles in what will hopefully be a bounce-back campaign for the 28-year-old star.
What more needs to be said? If you’re itching to know more about Wentz’s overall personality and what contributed to the end of his run with the Eagles, we’d seriously advise taking 35 minutes out of your weekend to watch the full exchange.
