No amount of money will get quarterback Carson Wentz his No. 11 jersey with his new team, the Indianapolis Colts. That was proven when Colts second-year receiver Michael Pittman Jr., who currently wears No. 11, says he has talked to Wentz and informed him a number switch is not going to happen.
“I am number 11,” Pittman told TMZ Sports. “… I don’t think there’s any deal that is gonna be done.”
Tennessee Titans receiver A.J. Brown saw the story and decided to deliver some cold hard facts to Pittman about the upcoming season after his decision.
“Lol he is not about to get the ball . Gotta know who in control bro lmao,” Brown tweeted.
It was last week when the Colts agreed to acquire Wentz to be their new starting quarterback from the Philadelphia Eagles for a 2021 third-round pick and 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-round pick.
Wentz wore No. 11 while at North Dakota State University and during his first five years with the Eagles.
“Yeah, so 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 told TMZ Sports. “… 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.”
