Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is hoping to put a rough 2020 season behind him and it seems, at least, his mentality toward the game is improving with his new team.

Entering his sixth season in the NFL, Wentz has seen it all. He’s been an MVP candidate. He’s gone through injuries. He’s been benched. Now, he’s looking for a fresh start with a team that believes in him, and he feels he’s found it.

“I really feel like I have a new passion for the game,” Wentz told Beth Hoole of Valley News Live. “I’ve been high, I’ve been injured, I’ve been, now, benched, I’ve been traded, I’ve kinda seen a lot in five years, so whatever the game throws at me I’m ready.”

Getting out of Philly was probably the best move for Wentz given the turmoil that went down during his final season with the team that drafted him No. 2 overall in 2016.

With the Colts having built a certain type of culture over the last few years, Wentz is digging the vibe he’s getting from his new team.

“I’m excited, I’m excited for it,” Wentz said. “Just being in the organization and being in the facility, it’s definitely a special place. It’s really got a family vibe and a family element … just to know there are some guys before me who had done incredible jobs and really are legends in that city is exciting.”

Wentz has plenty of questions to answer when it comes time to suit up for the regular season, but it seems things are moving in an encouraging direction as training camp nears.
