Thursday after follow Indianapolis Colts receiver Michael Pittman Jr. talked to the media and answered questions in regards to the season, rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson and his future with the staff.
A reporter requested if he anticipated to play this season and not using a contact extension. His response:
“Do I anticipate it? I imply I don’t actually anticipate nothing, actually. I imply if it occurs it occurs, and if it doesn’t occur, then yeah I might play it out with out an extension.”
He was then requested if he wished an extension.
“I imply I feel each participant desires to receives a commission, um like, I wouldn’t thoughts one.”
“I wouldn’t thoughts an extension” is a far cry from what we’ve heard from the agent of the opposite, star offensive participant the Colts have getting into a contract yr. It’s unclear if or when the Colts will look to increase Michael Pittman Jr..
It doesn’t matter what occurs, it doesn’t seem to be Pittman or anybody from his camp shall be requesting any trades or asking for a market setting deal else he holds out of the 2023 NFL season. We hear it mentioned on a regular basis that the NFL is a enterprise, however there’s a couple of option to conduct enterprise. We’ve seen MMA agent Malki Kawa throw a match on behalf of Jonathan Taylor and now we’ve seen Pittman say that he wouldn’t thoughts an extension.
Every participant has to do what is correct for them and their households however the polar reverse reactions of each males getting into a contract season will doubtless be seen very in a different way by followers. I predict we may even see a number of extra #11 jerseys bought this season than #28’s.
We will all hope MPJ has an enormous yr and perhaps he wouldn’t thoughts getting an enormous test signed by Jim Irsay.
