The Carson Wentz experiment within the nation’s capital went even worse than anticipated. The Commanders 2022 Week 1 starter isn’t even on the staff’s roster six months later, as he was launched by Washington on Monday. The transfer leaves doubtless 2023 starter Sam Howell and soon-to-be-free-agent Taylor Heinicke as the one quarterbacks on the Commanders’ roster.
Wentz was acquired final March by the Commanders after a horrible keep in Indianapolis as a real final probability to make it as a starter within the NFL. Wentz is now not employed, and whereas he could possibly be a serviceable back-up within the league shifting ahead, what staff would take an opportunity on this man after Washington benched him halfway via final season? A number of NFL groups want a veteran quarterback and he may find yourself with the Jets if the staff’s courtship of Aaron Rodgers doesn’t pan out. What religion would New York should throw him out in a recreation? I assume he’s higher than Zach Wilson, however what a low bar to clear.
Washington formally employed offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy final week. Wentz’s abrupt exit from the Commanders reveals all you should find out about what offensive plans had been in retailer for the second total choose within the 2015 NFL Draft shifting ahead. By releasing Wentz, the Commanders will reportedly save $26.2 million towards the staff’s wage cap.
