Quarterback Carson Wentz and the Washington Commanders are sitting at house watching the division-rival Philadelphia Eagles take part in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday.
Washington closed up store on a median 8-8-1 season simply over a month in the past and appears to be a number of tiers behind Philadelphia within the NFC East proper now.
Whether or not Washington is ready to flip it round in 2023 stays to be seen. But it surely received’t be with Wentz beneath middle.
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Washington is predicted to launch the previous No. 2 choose this offseason.
This isn’t essentially an earth-shattering shock. Commanders head coach Ron Rivera only recently opened up about their quarterback state of affairs from the location of the Tremendous Bowl in Arizona this previous week. He didn’t even point out Wentz as a chance. As a substitute, Rivera made it clear that 2022 draft choose Sam Howell will begin the offseason program as Washington’s QB1.
“The most important factor we determined is he’ll begin out as QB1. He’ll most actually get the primary alternative. We go into OTAs and minicamp, he’ll be QB1. He’ll battle for that place. We’ll give him each alternative to earn it, and we’ll see what occurs once we get into coaching camp and thru it,” Rivera on Commanders quarterback situation.
Washington acquired the 30-year-old Wentz from the Indianapolis Colts final offseason. It ended up dealing a second-round choose within the 2022 NFL Draft and what turned out to be a third-round choice this coming spring. It didn’t go effectively for the embattled quarterback and his soon-to-be former franchise.
