Colts’ Michael Pittman Jr. Refuses To Give Up His No. 11 To New QB Carson Wentz (VIDEO)
When Carson Wentz suits up for the Indianapolis Colts this year, he will be doing so with a new number.
Michael Pittman Jr. currently wears number 11 for the team and he has zero plans on giving up that number.
“I am No. 11,” Pittman told TMZ Sports. “I don’t think there’s any deal that is gonna be done.”
“I spoke to [Carson] and he was just seeing how locked in I was to No. 11, and I told him I was locked in — and he was like, ‘That’s cool, bro, because I’m probably gonna switch anyway,’” Pittman said. “He asked me very respectfully and I just appreciated him for that. I think he’s a great dude, because lots of guys with his status, they would come in and demand and stuff like that.”
Pittman caught 40 passes for 503 yards with a touchdown in 13 games during his rookie season. Wentz had been rocking the No. 11 since his days at North Dakota State.
Usually when a new player comes aboard and wants a number bad enough, they would pay for it, but it appears there isn’t a number out there that Pittman would accept.
“He’s just a super chill guy and I cant wait to get with him and start throwing and stuff.”
