Commanders Reportedly Considered Reaching Out to Andrew Luck

SJ - March 22, 2022

The Commanders were desperate to find a new quarterback this off-season.  After failing to land one of the bigger names in a trade they settled for Colts quarterback Carson Wentz.

They were so desperate to get a quarterback that they reportedly considered reaching out to another Colts quarterback, the retired Andrew Luck.  It never got to that point and they now have their QB.

From ESPN:

“At one point they even wondered: Would Andrew Luck, the retired former Colt, want to play again? That went nowhere,” wrote Keim. “But whether it was realistic or a Lloyd Christmas ‘So you’re telling me there’s a chance’ scenario, they wanted to make sure every ‘i’ was dotted.”

I bet Washington's front office is kicking themselves for not being more patient.  A lot of quarterbacks suddenly became available after they traded for Wentz.  But whatever the wrong move was they were going to do that, it's how they roll.
