Colts announce team captains for 2021 season
The Indianapolis Colts announced their team captains for the 2021 season as voted on by the players.
There will be little surprise to the group of players that will have a “C” on their chest throughout the upcoming season. Here are the 2021 team captains for the Colts:
- QB Carson Wentz
- WR T.Y. Hilton
- LG Quenton Nelson
- DT DeForest Buckner
- LB Darius Leonard
- LB Zaire Franklin
Wentz, Hilton and Nelson will be representing the offense. The votes for Hilton and Nelson go without question. It’s encouraging to see the players vote for Wentz to be a captain given all the rumors that went down during his time in Philadelphia.
Buckner and Leonard will be representing the defense. That comes as little surprise given the impact they have both on the field and in the locker room.
Franklin represents the special teams unit, which also is in line with how his career has gone with the Colts since they drafted him in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL draft.
