7 potential landing spots for Carson Wentz if Colts move on
Carson Wentz could land with Washington Commanders
The team in Washington, D.C., has a new name and they may soon have a new quarterback as well. As free agency and the draft approaches, the Commanders are a team to watch in the quarterback market.
Washington has had a ton of movement at the quarterback spot over the last two seasons. Since the 2020 season, six different quarterbacks have started for the Commanders.
In 2021, Taylor Heinicke started 15 games for Washington, and while he had some inspiring performances, no one is considering him the quarterback of the future. That’s still an ongoing search for the Commanders.
Washington does have the 11th-overall pick in the draft, and many predict that it will be the first team to take a quarterback. Even with the freedom to pick any of the quarterbacks in the draft, the Commanders may not want to immediately start a young QB.
It’s also possible that Washington doesn’t want any of the quarterbacks and decides to go in another direction with the pick. With either approach, the Commanders have options in the veteran quarterback market.
Carson Wentz is one of those options. He’ll provide an upgrade at the quarterback position and can be a starting quarterback until a younger player is ready.
Additionally, Washington is projected to have over $31 million in cap space, enough to take on Wentz’s contract.
