It’s hard to believe where we are with Carson Wentz.
In 2017, Wentz was a bonafide MVP contender. Then, he got hurt and Nick Foles came in and led Philly to a miracle run that ended with a Super Bowl Championship. Still, it was clear that Wentz was “the guy” in Philadelphia, and that he was going to be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL for years to come.
Well, sometimes things just don’t work out. Wentz was never the same quarterback as he was pre-injury in 2017, and he was actually really bad last season. Whether it be the disconnect with Doug Pederson, a lack of weapons, a bad O-line, or just natural regression, Carson Wentz needed a change of scenery. He got his wish.

Carson Wentz will now take over as the QB of the Indianapolis Colts, but he has a message for Philly on his way out. Wentz to social media to share one final goodbye to the city that once loved him. Here’s what Wentz wrote on his Instagram.
More than anything, I will miss my teammates. Thank you. I appreciate every one of you and will never forget the relationships and
memories made over the years. So many lifelong relationships have been formed in that locker room. Thank you for the fellowship, the camaraderie in the locker room, and the daily battles out on the practice field!
To the City of Philadelphia—Thank you. You have been my home for the past five years. It has been everything a kid from Bismarck, North Dakota could have dreamed of. My family grew here, had a lot of fun, ate a lot of great food, got to be a part of an incredible church, and so many more memories off the field. On the field, we brought the Lombardi trophy home to Philly and hopefully brought a lot of joy to the city over the years. Thank you to the amazing Eagles fans across the World that have supported my family, our foundation, and our football team through all of the wins and losses. It was an honor to play in a city whose passion and love for their football team is unrivaled. Thank you for supporting my family and our AO1 foundation—we hope we have made a positive impact in the communities in Philly and look forward to continuing our efforts to impact the area!
Thank you to the Eagles organization for drafting me and making my NFL dream come true. Thank you Mr. Lurie, Howie Roseman & the Eagles front office, Coach Pederson & all of my coaches, our training staff, our equipment staff and all of the support staff at the Nova Care Complex. It has been an amazing journey and I wish you all the best.
As one chapter closes, another one begins. And I’m excited to join the Indianapolis Colts and look forward to the work ahead! God’s plan!
