NFC East: Carson Wentz and Commanders part ways after just one season
It’s been a turbulent three years for our old pal Carson Wentz to say the least.
After joining the Washington Commanders last offseason and labeling himself Commander Carson, it seemed like a match made in heaven. The most dysfunctional franchise in the NFL with a has-been one year wonder leading them at quarterback, what could go wrong?!
Well, after just one year in the nation’s capital, Carson Wentz will be looking for employment elsewhere this offseason. As reported by Adam Schefter, Washington released the former second overall pick on Monday, saving the team upwards of $26M in cap space.
Carson Wentz will now play on his fourth team in four years come 2023
In a vacuum, this news isn’t all that surprising. We all knew the team was going to look in a different direction at quarterback this offseason. Still, it’s insane how far Wentz has fallen since the 2017 Super Bowl year in Philly.
From the future of the league to a perennial laughing stock would be tough a hard pill to swallow for anyone. Now imagine how Carson Wentz must feel. A guy who was disliked by the majority of his teammates at every stop, while simultaneously thinking he’s the big man on campus. In short, if these past three years haven’t taught Wentz a thing or two about how to carry yourself in this league, nothing will.
