Former Pro Bowl quarterback Carson Wentz has yet to sign with an NFL team this offseason, leading to some speculation on what his future looks like in the NFL. However, significant reports emerged on Wednesday that suggest he plans to continue his NFL career this upcoming season.

Wentz last played for the Washington Commanders last season, where he didn’t have that much success. He started in seven games, throwing for 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions on the year. The team went just 2-5 in his starts, which played a factor in him losing his job mid-way through the season.

The Commanders ultimately decided to part ways with him back in February, and there is now no clear landing spot for him to play next season. While he may not be a starter as he may hope, it sounds like he will attempt to sign with a team before the start of the season.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday that Wentz has been spending time in Tampa this offseason, where he has been studying film and throwing with former NFL head coach Jon Gruden. Schefter added that Wentz intends to play this upcoming season and is “awaiting the right situation”.

This update led many to speculate where an ideal landing spot could be for Wentz on social media.

Wentz has already made it clear this offseason that he would ideally like to go to a team where he could start. He previously stated that he “is open” to starting next season.

It doesn’t seem like he will get that opportunity unless an injury happens. If he truly wants to be a starter somewhere, it may be in his best interest not to sign anywhere until an injury opens up as starting spot somewhere.
