3 last-ditch landing spots for ex-Commanders QB Carson Wentz in 2023

Carson Wentz could join the Rams
After winning the Super Bowl and missing the postseason in consecutive seasons, the Los Angeles Rams have gone through some big changes this off-season. Top stars were traded or released as the team looks set to begin a mini-rebuild after risking it all for one shot at the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
While they succeeded in their goal, what the future holds is unclear. Their roster is unrecognizable from the one that hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy and with only Matthew Stafford under contract at the quarterback position, more is needed.
Carson Wentz’s time with the Washington Commanders didn’t go according to plan. But he could be of use in Los Angeles as a short-term backup that could potentially fill in if Stafford’s injury complications take longer than expected to heal.
It might not be ideal for Wentz, but this is the reality. Expecting to walk into any organization and be guaranteed anything after so much indifferent production isn’t realistic, but this looks like a better option than most factoring everything into the equation.
Working closely with Stafford and an exceptional offensive mind in Sean McVay could be exactly what the veteran needs right now. And at 30 years old, this represents an opportunity to remove himself from the proverbial spotlight and get his career back on track.
