Carson Wentz will be sporting a different jersey number when he debuts with the Indianapolis Colts.

The new Colts quarterback won't be wearing No. 11, as wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. doesn't plan to give it up.

"I am number 11," Pittman told TMZ Sports. "I don't think there's any deal that is gonna be done."

The 23-year-old says there are no hard feelings between the two, and Wentz is on board with his decision.

"Yeah, so I spoke to (Wentz) and he was just seeing how locked in I was to No. 11, and I told him I was locked in and he was like, 'That’s cool, bro, because I’m probably gonna switch anyway,'" Pittman noted.

Wentz has worn No. 11 since his college days at North Dakota State.

"He asked me very respectfully and I just appreciated him for that," Pittman added. "I think he’s a great dude, because lots of guys with his status, they would come in and demand and stuff like that.

"He’s just a super chill guy and I can't wait to get with him and start throwing and stuff," he continued.

Indianapolis acquired Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick.
