Carson Wentz has had enough of being talked badly from his former employer.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay took aim at his former quarterback Carson Wentz at the NFL owners’ meetings this week in Florida. Irsay admitted on Tuesday that the Wentz era was “a mistake.”
“I think the worst thing you can do is have a mistake and try to keep living with it going forward,” Irsay said, via the Indianapolis Star. “For us, it was something we had to move away from as a franchise. It was very obvious.”
That was just one of many comments that have came from Irsay as well as head coach Frank Reich.
This week, the new Commanders QB had a subtle way to fire back at Irsay.
Not the biggest shot back, but he’s making it clear that he will be taking the high road.
Wentz only spent one season with the Colts after the team acquired him from the Philadelphia Eagles last offseason for a 1st-round pick and a 3rd-round pick. Wentz had the Colts in playoff contention for most of the season, but he threw for under 230 yards in each of the final five games — and lost the last two.
Wentz was traded to the Washington Commanders this month for multiple draft picks.
