New team, new number. Carson Wentz will not be wearing No. 11 for the Indianapolis Colts.
Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. told TMZ he is not giving up No. 11 and that Wentz is cool with it.
"I am number 11," Pittman Jr. told TMZ. "I don't think there's any deal that is gonna be done.
"Yeah, so I spoke to [Carson] and he was just seeing how locked in I was to number 11, and I told him I was locked in, and he was like, 'That’s cool, bro, because I’m probably gonna switch anyway.'
"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."
1, 2, 4, 6, 10, 15 are the jersey numbers that are currently available for Wentz to chose from, unless others open up due to trades/cuts.
Wentz, 28, wore No. 11 for his entire NFL career with the Eagles. Pittman, 23, is coming off a rookie season where he caught 40 balls for 503 yards and one touchdown in 13 games.
