The Washington Commanders missed out on the NFL playoffs for the sixth time in the last seven years in 2022, finishing with a meager 8-8-1 record. The defense remained a strong point, but Washington's 24th-ranked offense failed to get them over the hump of playing .500 football.
Quarterback Carson Wentz was at the center of this substandard offense and was unable to eclipse more than 1,800 yards in an injury riddled campaign. The veteran may be under contract until 2025, but he sent out a touching message on Instagram that many perceived as a potential goodbye.
In typical Wentz fashion, his message was very professional. He offered gratitude to everyone about playing another year of NFL football and discussed the memories he created throughout the year.
There's serious speculation that the Commanders may ultimately just cut ties with the veteran prematurely.
Washington, like a few other teams around the NFL, are in desperate need of a quarterback. The defense finished 9th in Football Outsiders' DVOA metric, but scoring less than 20 points per game offensively makes winning games a tall task.
