It occurs to us that the Washington Football Team, under coach Ron Rivera and staff, have spent the 2021 NFL offseason looking honestly in the mirror and upgrading, piece-by-piece, what the roster needed.
Washington’s Antonio Gibson hasn’t been playing running back for long, but the transition from wide receiver to the backfield paid dividends in 2020. As a rookie last season, Gibson rushed for 795 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games.
He hasn't yet proven that he's even better than Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is the penciled-in No. 1 QB for the 2021 Washington Football Team. But a pair of Washington watchers have high praise for the potential of backup QB Taylor Heinicke - in part because of his Cinderella story.
First-year defenders will take time to adjust to NFL speed and size. For the Washington Football Team, Chase Young is the exception. Well before ever hearing his name called in the 2020 NFL Draft, the league knew Young was going to to be a nightmare to block for all pass-protectors.
Former Washington Football Team cornerback Fred Smoot was always brash and outspoken during his nine-year NFL career. Now in the media with his former team, Smoot is one of the more entertaining personalities who cover the Football Team.
The Washington Football Team came away from the 2021 NFL draft with high marks for several of their picks. First-round linebacker Jamin Davis, second-round offensive tackle Samuel Cosmi, and third-round wide receiver, Dyami Brown, received high praise.
The Washington Football Team won the NFC East in 2020 with an oddball situation at at quarterback, with former first-round pick Dwayne Haskins, Ron Rivera guy Kyle Allen, comeback king Alex Smith and young journeyman Taylor Heinicke all taking turns, leading to Heinicke's near-heroic work in the playoff loss to Tampa Bay.
The Washington Football Team was always meant to be a temporary name after Washington ditched their old nickname. Then it became somewhat popular with fans, leading to some consideration of making it permanent.
A month after surprisingly being release by the Washington Football Team, offensive tackle Morgan Moses may be on the verge of finding a new home. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Moses and the New York Jets are closing in on a potential multi-year deal.
It’s rare that a first-round pick falls out of favor as quickly as Dwayne Haskins did in Washington. While it may have been a surprise to outsiders, it certainly sounds like Haskins somewhat saw it coming.
Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera insists there will be an open competition for starting quarterback during training camp. That’s despite the team signing 36-year old veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick to a one-year deal worth up to $12 million this offseason.
Washington brought in Harvard immunologist Kizzmekia S. Corbett to speak with players about the COVID-19 vaccines on Tuesday night. Head coach Ron Rivera also encouraged players and staff to get their shots.
