Commander’s decision puts Carson Wentz on a new career path
When the Commanders cut Carson Wentz on Monday, it has the potential to seal his future in the NFL. The days of Wentz being the starting QB in the NFL are over. Now he is a backup.
Some teams may change in QB this season, but it’s hard to imagine Wentz winning a starting spot next season or beyond.
Once a second pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Commanders were Wentz’s third team in three seasons. He was transferred to Indianapolis after the 2020 season and was unable to catch up for a year with the Colts. Last season, he was traded to Washington.
As ESPN’s Field Yates noted on Twitter, his commercial value has greatly diminished over the past three years.
He scored the Eagles a pick in the first and third rounds and the Colts a second and two pick in the third round. The Commanders won’t get anything for their troubles, not even a lousy t-shirt.
