The Washington Commanders have released former starting quarterback Carson Wentz. He spent one season with the team.

He was acquired by the Commanders last March following a trade with the Indianapolis Colts. The move to cut ties with Wentz saves the team nearly $27 million against the salary cap.

Wentz may not get another starting opportunity in the league. After starting for several years with the Philadelphia Eagles, he has struggled with the Colts and Commanders.

The belief at the time was that former Colts head coach Frank Reich could fix Wentz. However, after his only season, the team decided to part ways with the quarterback.

If he continues playing in the league, he will likely be a backup. But with his young family, he could call it quits to spend more time at home.

Wentz was replaced by Tyler Heineicke and Sam Howell. Going into his second year in the league, Howell is projected to be the Commanders’ starting quarterback.

Heineicke is a free agent. It is not clear at this time if he would be interested in a backup role in Washington.

Wentz went 2-5 before being replaced by Heineicke.
