Commanders release Carson Wentz after one season in Washington

Feb 27, 2023

The Washington Commanders have ended their relationship with quarterback Carson Wentz after just one season, as they announced his release on Monday.

Head coach Ron Rivera was among Commanders brass that lobbied for a Wentz trade with the Indianapolis Colts for draft compensation. However, Wentz’s inconsistencies throughout the season saw Rivera bench him, going to Taylor Heinicke instead midway through the year.

This offseason, Wentz getting cut by Washington was a hot topic because of their cap situation. With Wentz aboard, the Commanders had about $8.3 million to work with in free agency and the 2023 NFL Draft.
