As expected, the Washington Commanders released Carson Wentz after only one disappointing season so the WTOP Sports team debates who should be the next veteran QB to don Burgundy and Gold, from home run option to the most likely candidate.

Also inside this jam-packed D.C. Sports Huddle presented by MGM National Harbor: We discuss what the franchise tag means for Daron Payne in Washington, the new format for sports on-air at WTOP, the Capitals’ direction in the midst of this flurry of trade activity, Maryland’s ceiling in the NCAA tournament and the current quirky-yet-crucial stretch for the Wizards. See how it all got derailed by building construction and Girl Scout cookies!

Huddle up with WTOP Sports Director George Wallace, Senior Content Producer Rob Woodfork and Morning Sports Anchor Dave Preston.
