The Indianapolis Colts are bought in on the potential of new quarterback Carson Wentz with general manager Chris Ballard most recently giving his recently-acquired signal-caller some praise.

While on “The Athletic Football Show” with Robert Mays of The Athletic, Ballard gave his thoughts on how he feels about Wentz and the upcoming season for the Colts.

“Look, Carson’s got some things that he’s got to do better, and he’s worked really hard this offseason on them,” Ballard said via Andrew Thomison of Stampede Blue. “But I think it’s gonna be fun to watch this year — I think it’s gonna be fun to watch Carson and our team come together and play together.”

Wentz’s 2020 season has cast plenty of doubt over the future outlook of the 28-year-old’s career. It was a bad season by all accounts, and it eventually got him benched in favor of Jalen Hurts.

But the Colts feel confident their system, supporting cast and extra-curricular work will get Wentz back to form.

“I believe in him. Easy,” Ballard said. “I believe in him. “When you’ve got a coach that’s as good as Frank is — and I think he’s really special — I believe in Carson. Now, we studied it and we saw some things on tape that we thought he could do better, that needed work, but I believe in him. When he said I believe in him, it’s hard to argue with that.”

The Colts will return for training camp on July 27, which is when we will get our first peek at Wentz truly working with the team.
