Michael Pittman really likes where Matt Ryan places the ball.
The Indianapolis Colts wide receiver was in the midst of hyping up his current quarterback, but in doing so, he took a subtle shot at Carson Wentz, who he caught balls from last season.
Pittman Jr., who is entering his third season, will be working with his third different starting quarterback since entering the league.
“The ball is just right there, and you just turn and catch the ball. I mean, it just makes it easy,” Pittman said. “Matt can pretty much put it wherever he wants.”
Pittman Jr. is coming off of a breakout season in 2021 when he recorded 88 receptions for 1,082 yards and six touchdowns.
According to Pro Football Focus, Pittman Jr. averaged just 3.9 yards after the catch per reception with Wentz at the helm in 2021. With Rivers behind center, he averaged 7.4 mark.
A second-round pick in 2020, Pittman figures to be one of Matt Ryan‘s primary targets in the quarterback’s first season with Indianapolis.
