Obviously no measure of cash will get quarterback Carson Wentz his No. 11 pullover with his new group, the Indianapolis Colts.
Colts second-year beneficiary Michael Pittman Jr., who at present wears No. 11, says he has conversed with Wentz about the number, and the appropriate response is no on a potential switch.
“I am number 11,” Pittman told TMZ Sports. “… I don’t think there’s any deal that is gonna be done.”
It’s normal for players in new groups to attempt to purchase their favored shirt number for a lot of cash from one of their partners.
The Colts conceded to Thursday to obtain Wentz to be their new beginning quarterback from the Philadelphia Eagles for a 2021 third-round pick and 2022 second-round pick that could transform into a first-round pick.
Wentz wore No. 11 while at North Dakota State University and during his initial five years with the Eagles.
“Yeah, so I spoke to [Carson] and he was just seeing how locked in I was to No. 11, and I told him I was locked in — and he was like, ‘That’s cool, bro, because I’m probably gonna switch anyway,'” Pittman told TMZ Sports. “… 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.”
Pittman wore No. 6 in school at USC, at that point began his Colts vocation with No. 86 preceding choosing No. 11.
