The Washington Commanders have released quarterback Carson Wentz and safety Bobby McCain, signaling a shift in the team’s focus to the future.
The Commanders signed Wentz to a one-year deal prior to the start of the 2021 season, but the team has decided to move on without him. “We appreciate the contributions of Carson and Bobby to the Washington Commanders and wish them the best in the future,” said Commanders general manager Brad Holmes in a statement.
The Commanders have not yet named a replacement for Wentz, but they are expected to look for a young quarterback to develop in the coming weeks and months.
McCain was also released by the Commanders, who signed him to a three-year deal prior to the start of the 2021 season. The team has not yet named a replacement for McCain, but they are expected to look for a veteran to fill the void.
The releases of Wentz and McCain come as the Commanders look to rebuild their roster and focus on the future. The team has not made the playoffs since their inaugural season in 2020 and is looking to make a return to the postseason in 2021.
