EX-EAGLES IN INDY: REICH LOVES STICKING HIS NECK OUT FOR WENTZ!

By Jeff Walker

As the Eagles gathered at NovaCare for last weekend’s rookie mini-camp, the Eagles-in-Exile were making some news in Indy.

According to the Indy Star:

From the moment Frank Reich realized Carson Wentz was available, the Colts head coach and offensive architect started advocating to bring Wentz to Indianapolis.

Reich had felt a special connection with Wentz from the moment they met in the pre-draft process, played a critical role in developing the quarterback into an MVP candidate in Philadelphia, kept an eye on Wentz after Reich left the Eagles for Indianapolis.

The Colts coach saw Wentz’s disastrous 2020 season, the fallout that made him available.

But Reich believes in Wentz, believes in the quarterback’s ability and, although he realizes his support for Wentz puts him and his ability to work with quarterbacks under the microscope, the Colts head coach feels no trepidation about his decision to step out in faith.

“I love sticking my neck out for people I believe in,” Reich said. “I believe in this team, I believe in Carson. I feel good about it.”
