Veteran Indianapolis Colts eide receiver T.Y. Hilton says the arm strength of new quarterback Carson Wentz has "jumped out" during offseason workouts according to Zak Keefer of The Athletic.

Hilton said he's excited for "the return of deep shots" in playing with Wentz, who has reportedly looked downfield for the 31-year-old often in camp. Wentz did chuck the ball deep in 2020, tossing it 20-plus yards downfield at the league's sixth-highest rate (13.7%), but struggled to connect on just 33% of those passes with five touchdowns and five picks. The Colts' offense remains dependent on Frank Reich tapping into the Wentz of old, who was an MVP candidate under the former in 2017. Michael Pittman and Hilton would obviously benefit in that scenario, too.
