A fan thinks Wentz > Mayfield. Probably, Buccaneers fans are suggesting that Wentz may take up Tom Brady’s chair by replacing Baker.

Another fan prefers Wentz over Mayfield, “He’s better than Baker, Pickett, Carr, and maybe Tannehill but I don’t think those teams would risk it.”  He thinks Rams or Pittsburgh could be good options for Wentz’s talent and coaching fit.

One believes Wentz can start for Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Vegas, Green Bay, and Tampa Bay.

One fan humorously suggests that perhaps Wentz would find more success in the XFL, implying doubts about his abilities.

Another fan dismisses the idea of Wentz securing a starting position right away, emphasizing that backup roles might be more realistic. They also point out that his salary expectations could impact his opportunities, suggesting that anything above $8 million may be too high.

Comparisons to Colin Kaepernick and Cam Newton are made, indicating slim chances for Wentz to secure a starting role similar to Kaepernick’s struggles and Newton’s recent experiences as a backup.
