REPORT: Colts Likely To Cut Or Trade QB Carson Wentz Before Trade Deadline

At the end of the 2020 season, the Indianapolis Colts seemed to be one piece away from a run at the Super Bowl, but after a trade for the answer Colts fans had hoped for, it hasn’t quite panned out.

Following an embarrassing loss to the worst team in football in Week 18 dashing the Colts’ playoff chances, the team is reportedly looking at exploring moving forward without Wentz under center.

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen (h/t Ari Meirov of Pro Football Focus), the Colts are “likely” to trade or release Wentz before March 19 since that is when his $15 million base salary becomes fully guaranteed.

Mortensen added that Wentz’s future in Indianapolis looks “bleak.”
