Washington fans got their first look at new signal caller Carson Wentz in a Commanders uniform on Tuesday with the team participating in voluntary OTAs.

The offseason workout offered a chance for players, new and old, to build chemistry on the field. And with Wentz leading the offense in 2022, no player is more excited about the opportunity to strengthen relationships with his teammates.

We got a few clips of the passer connecting with his playmakers this morning, and we have to say, he didn’t look half bad.

Here he is throwing darts to Curtis Samuel and Antonio Gibson.

Those in attendance commented on his size, ability to lead, and incredible arm strength which is welcomed news following a tumultuous offseason that saw his former team trade and then trash him.

The Commanders are hoping that Wentz can help Washington get back to the top of the NFC East standings, which might now be an easier task than once thought. Unfortunately, one play from today still has fans doubting whether he’ll be able to do it.

Carson Wentz throws a pick in his first practice

Wentz threw the inevitable first pick in practice Tuesday after defender Corn Elder (an all-time name, by the way) jumped a slant. It’s typically no big deal to see a turnover or two as the team works through the kinks of opening the practice sessions.

But with Wentz, everything is a big deal.

News of the interception made its way around social media and, to no one’s surprise, fans on Twitter began going into full meltdown mode.

Fans react to Carson Wentz’s first interception

Fans began (over)reacting to the word of Wentz’s first interception as a Commander. Take a look at some of the response on social media.

Of course, the reaction wouldn’t be complete without a few rival fans jumping in to fuel the fire. Dallas, Philly, and Indianapolis followers hopped in on the conversation, too.

Wentz has played for both the Eagles and Colts in the past.

Luckily for Wentz, this is only the offseason. If he protects the ball like he did last year (27 TDs to 7 INTs) then he should settle in nicely for the Commanders.
