NFL writer sums up Carson Wentz’s career after handful of dreadful seasons
Carson Wentz failed to revive his career with the Washington Commanders during the 2022 season after going 2-5 in seven starts with the team, eventually losing his job to Taylor Heinicke.
Wentz has been with three teams in the past three years and will likely look to find a backup position once the 2023 season begins, as the Commanders released him last week. Long gone are the days when he was running for an NFL MVP award.

NFL journalist Peter King ended Wentz’s career since he was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2016 with the No. 2 overall pick from North Dakota State. In his “Football Morning in America” column, King outlined that Wentz earned over $128 million with an overall record of 46-45-1 and zero wins in the playoffs.
“While Wentz was on his way to a great season before injuring his knee in 2017, he could never repeat it and even relapsed,” King wrote to sum things up about Wentz. “I would say no player in NFL history has cost so much and delivered so little.”

Wentz was second overall behind Jared Goff, who went to the Los Angeles Rams. To move into No. 2, the Eagles traded their 2016 first, third, and fourth round picks, a 2017 first round pick, and a 2018 second round pick to the Cleveland Browns.
He was then traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2021 for a third round pick in 2021 and a first round pick in 2022. The Colts then traded him to the Commanders for a second and third round pick in 2022 and a conditional preliminary pick in 2023.
