The second-round pick could become a first next year if Wentz takes at least 75% of the snaps or he plays at least 70% of the plays and the Colts go to the playoffs.

“He’s going to do you some good, I know what he’s capable of, I know what he’s capable of with [head coach] Frank Reich and you guys are going to go off next season,” Giovanni said to Colts fans.
