Teddy Bridgewater landing spot no. 2: Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts don’t seem too thrilled about the way year one of the Carson Wentz era went.

Wentz had 27 touchdown passes in his first year with the Colts, but he played horribly in the final two games of the season as the Colts watched their 98 percent playoff chances disappear.

That had to be incredibly frustrating for all parties and Wentz was not solely to blame, but as the quarterback he shoulders a lot of it and now it sounds like it is unlikely he will be back.

But what are the Colts’ alternatives, really?

Teddy Bridgewater?

It’s hard to know for certain and again — this option isn’t going to excite the stampede of Colts fans all that much. With that said, Bridgewater is a risk-averse quarterback whose teammates seem to really like him.

That’s also been somewhat of an issue for Wentz through the years, perhaps more prominently in Philadelphia.

Bridgewater can give you average quarterback play. In a great offensive scheme, perhaps there’s even the potential for above average.

One thing we know he can do well?

Hand the ball off to Jonathan Taylor.
