The Indianapolis Colts will be looking to make the playoffs this fall for the third time in the last four years, but they will have to do so with a new starting quarterback. The Colts traded for former Philadelphia Eagle Carson Wentz this offseason and he already seems to be winning over his teammates.

This has to be a big change for the 28-year-old QB as he has spent all five of his NFL seasons in the City of Brotherly Love. However, he has spent a lot of time this offseason traveling the country to meet with his teammates and making sure he gets to know them on a personal level.
Wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. was one of the players Wentz worked out with before team practices got underway. He said he doesn't know why everyone thought Wentz was a bad teammate.
"I just see a team guy. He’s always ready to help and just do whatever it takes. He’s been a great guy, a great teammate.”- Michael Pittman Jr. on Wentz
Wentz and his family have since settled down in the Indianapolis area, which has allowed him to be around the team more often. The veteran QB said that one of his favorite things about the game of football is developing a sense of camaraderie and chemistry in the locker room.
"I enjoy getting to know guys and hearing their stories, their backgrounds, all of those things, especially this time of year."- Carson Wentz
Wentz will look to bounce back from a tough last few years and become a true leader on this talented offense. The Colts currently have the 10th-best odds to win the Super Bowl at +2500, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
