Carson Wentz’s teammate gets brutally honest on Colts QB ahead of 2021 season
Despite a brutal season in 2020 with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Indianapolis Colts risked it all and traded for quarterback Carson Wentz. In the process, the move has reunited Wentz with former coach Frank Reich which is seen as a potential factor in the QB enjoying a bounce-back campaign with the Colts.
Teammate Darius Leonard recently spoke on the impact Wentz has had in the Indy locker room and how he’s settled in with his new team.
“You would think that he’s been in this Colts locker room for about seven years,” Leonard said, via Doug Farrar of USAToday.com. “He has this presence about him and his leadership role, and that’s what you need in a quarterback room. We have a great offensive line with the Colts that’s going to protect him. We have the best backfield in the NFL, in my opinion, and we have these great skill guys on the outside. He came into a perfect place to have success. We believe in him. We know who he is, and we know what he can be. I can’t wait to see what he and coach Frank are going to step up and do.”
Could this be the coming-out party for Carson Wentz? He did show a lot of potential early in his career and a fresh start is sometimes all that a player needs. The Colts are built to win with a solid core and a tremendous offensive line to let Wentz do his thing.
A lot of people are excited to see what the former Eagle will be able to do with the Colts. If we’re going off what Leonard has seen, he believes that his new quarterback is going to be a very important piece of Indy’s success in 2021.
