NFL Hall of Famer and new "Monday Night Football" analyst Troy Aikman says the Washington Commanders are Carson Wentz’s last chance to prove he is a franchise quarterback.
When Wentz was taken by the Philadelphia Eagles with the second pick overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, there was a great deal of hope for what the North Dakota star could be at the next level. His first two seasons in Philly seemed to back up his potential, especially when he earned a trip to the Pro Bowl in his second season.
However, a major injury and inconsistent play afterward seemed to derail all the promise of Wentz’s early career, and after five seasons with the Eagles, he was traded off to the Indianapolis Colts before last season. Yet, despite having solid numbers in his first year in Indiana, his play was not to the level that the team was looking for when they traded two draft picks for the 29-year-old.
