In the NFL news this Tuesday: QB Carson Wentz, happy to get to the Colts; the Packers are working on restructuring QB Aaron Rodgers’ contract and more.
“Indianapolis has more vibe and culture than Philadelphia”: Wentz.
The new Indianapolis Colts QB, Carson Wentz, stated that he is happy to join his new team, especially for the city to which he arrives. “From a family point of view, I have an 11-month-old baby. I have my wife, and she’s from Kentucky, so his whole family is two and a half hours away. It feels like us, our culture, our values, and our vibe.
It’s a different world there, in the Northeast (Philadelphia). North Dakota is a different world (too). I love the place, I love the area, but it is very different,” Wentz said.
