It sounds like Carson Wentz’s time with the Colts is coming to an end.

According to Chris Mortensen, the Colts will likely trade or waive the former second overall pick before March 19 in order to save $15 million. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Colts are preparing to move off Wentz. Despite having a stacked roster, he just couldn’t get the job done last year.

Not only were there times when the Colts looked like they were going to make the playoffs, but lots of people thought they could make a run.

Instead, they laid an egg down the stretch and didn’t even make the playoffs. It was an all-time bad collapse at the end of the season.

Wentz’s inability to make big plays was a major reason why the team collapsed. Now, it sounds like the Colts are ready to go a different direction.

I don’t blame them at all. If I was in their shoes, I’d do the exact same thing.

The only question now is where Wentz will land. I’m sure he’ll get another job, but his days as a starter might be nearing an end.
