The NFL offseason has already featured multiple quarterbacks on the move with Carson Wentz being the latest to join a new team. Things were beyond repair in Philadelphia, so he will now call the signals in Indianapolis. A change of scenery can result in success, but it’s never a guarantee. So, which version of Wentz are the Colts getting? Only time will truly tell on that. But overall, the move is a positive for both sides. For the Eagles, it helps build a better future. As for the Colts, their push toward a Super Bowl is still in full force.

The first significant area that will help out Wentz is the rushing attack the Colts feature. Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines are both perfect backs for this quarterback. Both are versatile backs that are good runners and receiving threats. They will help slow the game down again for Wentz and limit his turnovers.

The burning question going into the 2021 season will be, who else will Wentz have to throw to? The Colts have a few players that could leave via free agency so that will make it a little more difficult. But they do boast a couple of some solid receiving threats in Mitchael Pittman Jr. and Zach Pascal. Beyond those names, Indianapolis will need to lock in another wide receiver and figure out their tight end room because most of them are free agents this offseason.

One area that will help Wentz the most is the Colts’ fantastic offensive line. They did an excellent job of protecting Philip Rivers last season. On the other side of the ball, the Indianapolis defense will likely rank top-five in the league once again which will set up Wentz and the offense with favorable field position.
