The NFL season is officially over and this offseason could be one of the craziest of all time. There are a number of teams who are looking to make a change at quarterback and even though he was dreadful in 2020, Carson Wentz is a name to watch.
Wentz has a big contract and was benched for rookie Jalen Hurts by the Philadelphia Eagles last season, but his talent is undeniable. There’s no doubt that there is a coach somewhere out there who thinks he can fix Wentz.
Wentz led the NFL with 15 interceptions this season despite the fact that he only played in 11 games. He was also sacked a league-most 50 times for 326 yards.

Carson Wentz to Chicago or Indianapolis?
The Chicago Bears are the odds-on favorite to land Wentz right now. He would be getting a fresh start in the Windy City after the Bears went through an up-and-down season with Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles under center. Bears passing game coordinator/QB coach John DeFilippo was Wentz’s QB coach in Philly in 2016-17.
Indianapolis isn’t far behind Chicago when it comes to odds on PointsBet Sportsbook. With the news of Philip Rivers’ retirement, they have a need at quarterback. Colts head coach Frank Reich was Philly’s offensive coordinator from 2016-17 before taking up with the Colts.
Chicago and Indianapolis are two teams that are rumored to be in on Wentz at this time. It’s no surprise considering the connections their coaching staffs have to Wentz.
There are a bunch of longshots on the board. The Jets are likely to move on from Sam Darnold this offseason, but they are more likely to move on a quarterback in the draft with the No. 2 pick. Denver, Washington, and Carolina are all in the mix for a long-term option at quarterback as well.
