The Indianapolis Colts could soon move on from quarterback Carson Wentz and several teams may be interested in acquiring him.
With every passing day, it seems more likely that the Indianapolis Colts will move on from quarterback Carson Wentz. Indy acquired Wentz just one year ago, but after one season, the partnership may be ending.
During the 2021 season, Wentz improved statistically from his final year in Philadelphia, throwing 3,563 yards, 27 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
While this was a return to the better version of Wentz, he still struggled to consistently deliver, especially in some of the Colts’ biggest moments.
That’s the biggest argument for moving on from Wentz. For a team that is so close to contending for a Super Bowl, they need a quarterback that can be trusted in the clutch moments. Many feel that isn’t Wentz.
So if the Colts actually decide to go a different direction this offseason, will Wentz have a market? The answer is yes. He’s a better option than a lot of team’s starters and many coaching staffs will probably feel they can get more out of his talent.
Let’s take a look at some potential landing spots for Carson Wentz if the Colts decide to move on.
Carson Wentz could land with Seattle Seahawks
This option is completely dependent on the decision Russell Wilson makes for his future. Entering the offseason, there is a belief that Wilson will decide if he wants to remain with the Seattle Seahawks or not.
If he wants to stay, Seattle will certainly keep him. Russell is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and has led the Seahawks to a ton of success.
If Wilson wants to leave, Seattle will have to move him and also find a replacement at quarterback. As of now, Jacob Eason is the only other quarterback on Seattle’s roster.
A trade between the Colts and Seahawks is one that can benefit both franchises. Indianapolis could get Wilson, which is an upgrade over Wentz, and Seattle could get Wentz, a replacement until the Seahawks find a quarterback of the future.
Once again, this is all dependent upon where Russell Wilson wants to play football next season.
