I’m sorry to report that, compared to yesterday, it’s been a pretty dull day in the wide world of sports. Aaron Rodgers hasn’t made any announcements, nor have any more franchise quarterbacks been traded. Well, unless you consider Carson Wentz to be a franchise quarterback. I do not, but apparently more than one NFL team does!
Last year, the Colts made the move to acquire Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles, and, after one season, decided it wasn’t worth it. Now the Washington Commanders — going to take a while to get used to that — are giving Wentz a shot.

Now, Wentz is an upgrade on Taylor Heinicke… probably. Is he enough of an upgrade to give up draft picks and pay more than $20 million a year for? Probably not, but, hey, if it doesn’t work out, they’ll probably be somebody else willing to trade for him a year from now.
To the picks!
