Update: What number will Wentz wear? (merge) in Colts Football Posted Wednesday at 05:25 PM 45 minutes ago, AustexColt said: - I am glad that M.Pittman took a stand in wanting the 11 number - I am glad that Wentz was cool about it BUT IMO, the ultimate decision belongs with the Colts management, namely Ballard/Irsay BECAUSE: 1- The Team assigns the number. They can also change the assigned numbers like they recently did last year. 2- There maybe contractual obligations in the original Philadelphia contract with Carson that this number be permanently assigned to Carson Wentz. Contracts can be altered so it is not a show stopper. 3- Number 11 with Wentz is a marketing brand which may have value in the eyes of the Colts marketing. Historically speaking, HOF QB's have changed jersey number when they moved on from their original team: Joe Montana was #16 (49ers) then #19 (KC), Unitas was #19 (Colts) then #16 (Chargers) If Carson changes number and becomes a HOF with the Colts, then that is the number that will be retired in the HOF. Unitas wore #19 for the Chargers.
