While things began in promising fashion as Wentz played well in the Week 1 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, it was short-lived.

In Week 3 against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz was sacked nine times. Washington’s offensive line was exposed against the Eagles, but make no mistake, Philly knew Wentz better than anyone.

After struggling some over the next few weeks, Wentz fractured a finger on his throwing hand in a Week 6 win over the Bears, paving the way for Taylor Heinicke in Week 7.

Heinicke helped lead Washington into playoff contention, but the offense stalled late in the year, leading head coach Ron Rivera to turn back to Wentz once healthy.

Wentz returned to the starting lineup in Week 17 vs. the Cleveland Browns and was abysmal. He played horribly, and Washington was eliminated from playoff contention. That game sealed his fate with the Commanders.

Well, whatever it is, it will not be in Washington. Wentz may have two years left on his contract, but there are no guarantees, meaning the Commanders can release him with no cap charges. It’s not a matter of if, only when at this point.


Wentz’s greatest success with the Eagles was in 2017 when he led them to an 11–2 record. Although he suffered a season-ending injury, Wentz helped put the Eagles in position to obtain the top seed of the National Football Conference (NFC), which culminated with the franchise’s first Super Bowl title in Super Bowl LII. He also earned Pro Bowl and second-team All-Pro honors.
