Veteran quarterback Carson Wentz is currently a free agent without a team, but he reportedly still plans to play this season – and it sounds like he thinks he might still even get a starting job.

During an appearance on SportsCenter on Monday morning, NFL insider Jeremy Fowler of ESPN claimed that Wentz “plans to play this year” and is looking for roles that could even include as a starter.

“I was told he’s been working out in L.A., plans to play this year,” Fowler explained. “He’s had interest from some teams. He’s open to various roles; could be as a starter, could be as a backup, but he just wants to play this coming year.”

Fowler reiterated that claim on social media shortly after his appearance on SportsCenter

“Updated free agent QB Carson Wentz on @SportsCenter… He’s been working out in L.A. in preparation for the season, he’s received interest from teams and he might wait longer into offseason to see what develops. But he’s open to any role, I’m told (starter or backup),” Fowler wrote in a tweet.

It’s a pretty bold suggestion that Wentz could be interested in a starting quarterback job given that he hasn’t really proven himself as a starting quarterback in recent years and there aren’t really any open starting quarterback spots available.

In fact, the NFL world thought the suggestion that Wentz could even be suggesting a starting quarterback role was pretty hilarious.

Despite what Wentz seems to desire, chances aren’t high he gets a starting quarterback role.
