Carson Wentz responds to Colts owner Jim Irsay's criticism: 'Out of left field'

Things went poorly for Carson Wentz during his only season with the Indianapolis Colts. Wentz's poor performance down the stretch led to the team missing the playoffs, which then led to the team trading him to the Washington Commanders in the offseason.

In the months after that trade, prominent members of the Colts have ripped Wentz, with team owner Jim Irsay calling the Wentz era "a mistake." Irsay also said it was "obvious" the team had to move on from Wentz in the offseason.

Wentz responded to those comments Wednesday, saying they came as a surprise.
