Former Eagles’ QB Carson Wentz signing with Rams as backup to Matthew Stafford

After waiting until ten weeks into the 2023 regular season, quarterback Carson Wentz is back in the NFL and will be joining the Los Angeles Rams.

According to Aaron Wilson, the Rams are releasing Dresser Wynn and signing the former Eagles star as the primary backup to quarterback Matthew Stafford.

The No. 2 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft, Wentz spent five controversial seasons in Philadelphia, even earning a contract extension before eventually being traded to Indianapolis.

After a late-season collapse with the Colts, Wentz was traded to the Commanders.

The 30-year-old went 2-5 in seven games as Washington’s starter last season, throwing for 1,755 yards, 11 touchdowns, and nine picks.

Wentz spent one season in Washington before being released ahead of a $26 million cap hit for 2023.

In seven seasons (92 starts), Wentz has thrown 151 touchdown passes with 66 interceptions.
