Report: Washington commanders sought to bring Andrew Luck out of retirement

I31 seasons have passed since Washington Redskinswho lost his nickname and was known for a few seasons as the Washington football team and are today presented to the world as the Washington Commandershave not reached and obviously not won a superbowl.

Since Marc Rypienthe victory of in Super Bowl XXVI against the Buffalo Ticketsa total of 32 quarterbacks have started at least one game for the franchise since the capital of the United States, an average of more than one passer per year, so the controversial organization, whose owner is Daniel Snyderfinally wanted to do it right.

An endless search for a quarterback

The search for a new quarterback was open and thorough, as ESPN’s John Keim reports, and included a lengthy meeting between the current head coach Ron Rivera and the strategist who led the team to three trophies Vince Lombardi, Joe Gibbswhich largely contributed to the final decision to bring in Wentz.

The greatest commonality between the two, according to this report, is that with the #11 draft pickthis class of college football doesn’t have a talent worth taking in this round, so finding a veteran was the first decision.

Options before choosing Carson Wentz

What is interesting is that in addition to the expensive initial options of an exchange for Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilsonthe Commanders sought, according to this same report, to convince Andrew Luckwho played with Indianapolis Colts for seven seasons (2012-2018) and who, at age 32, apparently did not want to be part of Washington.

They then checked many advanced stats, analyzed all the starting quarterbacks from last season and finally made the decision to go all-in for Carson Wentzone of Luck’s unsuccessful successors at Indy.
