Colts owner Jim Irsay says there was no doubt about the decision to trade Carson Wentz.
Irsay said today that the Colts knew they had to make a change after their disastrous Week 18 loss to the Jaguars.
“It’s just, for us, it was just it was something that we had to move away from as a franchise — it was very obvious,” Irsay said of the Wentz trade, via Zak Keefer of TheAthletic.com.
Irsay said the Colts explored everything in finding a new franchise quarterback, but it was clear that there was not going to be a Year 2 for Wentz in Indianapolis.
Eventually, the Colts traded for Matt Ryan, and Irsay believes the Colts have a winner in town. Irsay was eager to get Wentz out of town.
