Carson James Wentz (born December 30, 1992) is an American football quarterback for the Washington Commanders of the National Football League (NFL). Wentz played college football at North Dakota State, where he won five NCAA FCS national championships. He was selected second overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2016 NFL Draft, making him the FCS's highest drafted player.

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. Wentz helped bring Philadelphia back to the playoffs during his next two seasons, but further injuries limited his participation. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2021, where he spent one season before being traded to Washington the following year.

Early years

Born in Raleigh, North Carolina, Wentz moved to North Dakota with his family at the age of three.[1] He played quarterback and defensive back for the football team at Century High School in Bismarck, and also played basketball and baseball for the Patriots.[2] As a freshman, he was 5 ft 8 in (1.73 m) in height, grew to 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m) as a senior,[3] and graduated in 2011 as valedictorian of his class.[4]

In February 2016, most analysts had Wentz projected to be selected in the mid-first round of the draft.[29][30][31] However, Wentz began to be regarded as a Top 10 prospect after his pro day. On January 30, 2016, he played in the 2016 Reese's Senior Bowl and finished the game completing 6 of 10 pass attempts for 50 yards.[32] At the NFL Scouting Combine, Wentz showcased his athleticism as he was in the top three in the 40-yard dash, the broad jump, and the three-cone drill among all quarterbacks. Wentz also reportedly scored a 40/50 on his Wonderlic test.[33]

Philadelphia Eagles

2016 season

See also: 2016 Philadelphia Eagles season

On April 28, 2016, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Wentz in the first round with the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.[34] He was the first quarterback the Eagles selected in the first round of an NFL Draft since Donovan McNabb in 1999, who was also taken second overall.[35] He was also the highest-selected FCS quarterback taken in draft history and the first FCS quarterback taken in the first round since Joe Flacco in 2008.[36] The Eagles traded three top 100 picks in 2016, a first round pick in 2017, and a second round pick in 2018 in order to move up in the draft order and get him.[37] Wentz signed a four-year, fully guaranteed contract worth $26.67 million on May 12, 2016.[38][39]

He suffered a rib injury in the team's first preseason game of 2016,[40] but was fully healthy for the beginning of the 2016 regular season. Originally intending to have Wentz sit and learn for the 2016 season, those plans changed when the Eagles traded quarterback Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings in September.[41] The same day, it was also reported that the team planned to start Wentz for the 2016 season when he became healthy.[42] On September 5, Wentz was named the starter for the Eagles' 2016 season opener against the Cleveland Browns.[43] In the game he threw for 278 passing yards and 2 touchdowns in the 29–10 victory.[44] He was named the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for Week 1.[45] Wentz threw for 190 yards and a touchdown in a 29–14 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 2.[46] He became the first rookie quarterback since 1970 to win his first two games of the season and not throw an interception.[47] In Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Wentz finished with 301 passing yards and 2 touchdowns as the Eagles won 34–3.[48] He was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Steelers.[49] In Week 9, against the New York Giants, he was 27-of-47 for a season-high 364 yards and two interceptions in the 28–23 loss.[50] In his rookie season, Wentz started all 16 games for the Eagles as they finished the season with a 7–9 record.[51] Wentz threw for a league-record 379 completions by a rookie, breaking the record of 354 held by former teammate Sam Bradford, who was with the St. Louis Rams at the time.[52] His 379 completions also set a single season franchise record, breaking the record of 346 also held by Bradford from the previous season. Wentz also set a single season franchise record with 607 pass attempts, the second highest attempts by a rookie in league history (Andrew Luck had 627 in the 2012 season).[53]

In Week 1 against the Washington Redskins, Wentz finished with 307 passing yards, two touchdowns, and an interception from a pass tipped at the line of scrimmage as the Eagles won by a score of 30–17.[54] In Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Wentz threw for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. In addition, he rushed for 55 yards in the 27–20 loss.[55] In a Week 5 34–7 rout over the Arizona Cardinals, Wentz finished the game with 304 yards and a career-high four passing touchdowns.[56] In the first five games of 2017, he passed for 1,362 yards and 10 touchdowns with three interceptions.[57][58] After this start, NFL insiders and reports ranked Wentz as a possible NFL MVP.[59] Wentz was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 7 after passing for 268 yards and a career-high tying four touchdowns in a 34–24 win over the Redskins.[60] During Week 9 against the Denver Broncos, Wentz finished with 199 passing yards and 4 touchdowns as the Eagles won 51–23.[61] During Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams, Wentz left the game due to an apparent knee injury. He finished with 291 passing yards, 4 touchdowns, and an interception as the Eagles won 43–35. The win earned Wentz's first NFC East Title in the Pederson/Wentz era.[62] The next day, an MRI revealed that he suffered a torn ACL, keeping him out for the remainder of the season.[63][64] In 13 starts, Wentz finished the year with 3,296 passing yards, 33 touchdowns, 7 interceptions, a 60.2 completion percentage, and a 101.9 quarterback rating. On December 13, Wentz underwent successful surgery on his ACL.[65] Wentz was selected to his first Pro Bowl on December 19, but could not participate due to the aftermath of his recent knee surgery.[66][67] He was ranked third by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2018.[68] Led by Nick Foles, the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41–33 in Super Bowl LII, the first Super Bowl win in franchise history.[69][70]

2018 season

On June 25, 2018, prior to the start of the new season, Wentz was ranked third overall in the NFL Top 100 Players of 2018.[71] It is the highest Top 100 debut ranking in the history of the league.[72]

Wentz missed the first two games in an effort to continue recovery from his ACL injury and Nick Foles remained as the starter. On September 17, Wentz was medically cleared and retained his starting quarterback role.[73] In his 2018 debut, Wentz would finish with 255 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Eagles' 20–16 win against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.[74] The Eagles experienced mixed results with Wentz as starter. He finished with a 5–6 record and passed for 3,074 yards, 21 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.[75] Near the end of the season, Wentz had to deal with a back injury and the Eagles not wanting to risk further injury decided to shut him down for the season and put Nick Foles as the starter for the rest of the season and the playoffs.[76]

The division title was his second in the Pederson/Wentz era.[85][86] Wentz finished the 2019 season with 4,039 passing yards, 27 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.[87] He became the first quarterback in franchise history to pass for at least 4,000 yards[88] and the first in the NFL to do so without any receiver catching at least 500 yards.[89]

In the NFC Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks, Wentz left the game with a head injury in the first quarter after defensive end Jadeveon Clowney made a helmet to helmet hit on him. He was ruled out of the game with a concussion after playing just nine snaps[90] in his post-season debut. The Eagles lost the game 17–9.[91]

In the second quarter, the Eagles had a 17–0 lead over the Football Team, but they never managed to score for the rest of the game.[92] In Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, Wentz continued to struggle, throwing for 242 yards and two interceptions during the 37–19 loss.[93] In Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals, Wentz threw two more interceptions during the 23–23 tie game.[94] In Week 7, against the New York Giants, he had 359 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown, and one interception in the 22–21 win.[95] In Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, Wentz struggled, throwing for 123 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions during a 23–9 win.[96] In Week 11, Wentz went 21 for 35 throwing against the Cleveland Browns for 235 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, one being a pick-six in the 22–17 loss.[97] In Week 12, Wentz threw for two touchdowns and one interception for 23–17 loss against the Seattle Seahawks.[98] In Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers, Wentz was benched in the third quarter for Jalen Hurts after the Eagles were trailing 20–3.

At the time of his benching, Wentz scored 21 total touchdowns (16 passing, 5 rushing). However, he led the league in interceptions thrown (15), total turnovers (19), and sacks taken (50).[103] He ended up leading the league in all of those categories at the end of the season despite only playing in 12 games.[104]

Indianapolis Colts

Wentz was traded to the Indianapolis Colts on March 17, 2021, in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 first-round pick.[105] He was reunited with former Philadelphia Eagles' coordinator Frank Reich, who had since become the head coach of the Colts. During training camp, Wentz suffered a foot injury that required surgery.[106] Despite the foot surgery, Wentz was able to return in time for the September 12 season opener at home against the Seattle Seahawks, where he completed 25-of-38 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns, however the Colts fell short 28–16 in his Indianapolis debut.[107] Wentz threw for 3,563 yards, 27 touchdowns, 7 interceptions as the Colts finished the season 9–8, but failed to qualify for the playoffs after a loss in week 18 to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
