Wentz, whom the Colts acquired from Philadelphia, revealed his new jersey — No. 2 — when a fan, Giovanni Hamilton, wore it on social media Wednesday.

Hamilton, who has a rare condition called Schwartz-Jampel syndrome, met Wentz during Eagles training camp in 2019. Hamilton’s Twitter page says he’s “Carson Wentz’s #1 fan.”
Wentz had to switch his jersey number from 11 to 2 because Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. declined to switch with his new quarterback. The Colts are giving Philadelphia a 2021 third-round pick and 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-round pick for Wentz.
“I am number 11,” Pittman told TMZ Sports in February. “… I don’t think there’s any deal that is gonna be done.”
