  Football Team | Ryan Fitzpatrick to open camp as starter    Thu Apr 1, 05:30 PM

Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will open training camp as the starting quarterback but will have to compete for the job during the preseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: That's the move that was expected when the team added Fitzpatrick in free agency. However, they will compete for the starting job and we expect the veteran to win the job....and then potentially lose the job like he has most other places he's landed. Fitzpatrick can be exciting when he's hot, but things can turn ice cold with him in a hurry.

  Football Team | Adam Humphries visiting WAS    Thu Mar 25, 10:29 AM

Free-agent WR Adam Humphries (Titans) is visiting the Washington Football Team Thursday, March 25.

Footballguys view: If Humphries is healthy, he can work as a slot receiver and put up decent production. He does have a previous working relationship with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick from their days in Tampa. Washington needs another receiver to work in the slot with Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel on the outside.

Free-agent WR Curtis Samuel (Panthers) signed a three-year contract worth $34.5 million with the Washington Football Team Wednesday, March 17, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Samuel will be reunited with Scott Turner, who was more willing to use him as a runner during his brief stint as playcaller in Carolina. Samuel, like the rest of the Washington offense, will see his value increased now that Ryan Fitzpatrick was signed to start at quarterback.

Free-agent RB Lamar Miller (Football Team) signed a one-year deal with the Washington Football Team Wednesday, March 17. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: This doesn't really move the needle. Miller is not the same back he used to be but gives WFT some veteran depth behind starter Antonio Gibson.

  Football Team | Ryan Fitzpatrick packing his bags for Washington    Mon Mar 15, 11:09 PM

Impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Dolphins) reportedly agreed to terms to a one-year contract worth $10 million that could be worth as much as $12 million with incentives with the Washington Football Team on Monday, March 15.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick will enter the season as the starter. He'll be pushed for the job by Taylor Heinicke but should be able to hold the youngster off. Washington was willing to give Fitzpatrick what he wanted as most teams look at him as a 'bridge' quarterback to a younger player.

Washington Football Team OG Brandon Scherff signed his one-year franchise tender offer Friday, March 12, and is expected to make more than $19 million in 2021.

Footballguys view: Scherff will make 33-34 million over 2020 and 2021, which is far above any other guard. The Football Team is costing themselves a lot because they won't commit to Scherff long term.

  Football Team | Cam Sims to be tendered    Thu Mar 11, 06:32 PM

Washington Football Team restricted free-agent WR Cam Sims will receive a tender offer this offseason, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Football Team thinks enough of Sims to give him at least two million this year, which means he has a good chance to make the team. They'll be active at wide receiver in free agency and possibly the draft and Kelvin Harmon will be returning from an ACL tear, so Sims is far from assured the starting spot he had down the stretch, but his arrow is still pointing up.

Washington Football Team exclusive rights free-agent QB Kyle Allen received a tender offer Wednesday, March 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Allen will stay with Washington and he might get a chance to compete for the starting spot. It depends on if WFT is part of the mix for an unquestioned starter via trade like Deshaun Watson or if they want to look for a starter in the draft.

  Football Team | Terry McLaurin a one-man show    Sat Mar 6, 11:29 PM

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin was targeted 83 more times than any other receiver on the team in 2020.

Footballguys view: McLaurin is a rising star in this league, so it's not a surprise Washington would lean on him so heavily. It was revealed after the season that McLaurin played through two high-ankle sprains in 2020. That's why his numbers trailed off towards the end of the season. He'll be back at full strength this season, but nobody knows who Washington's starting quarterback will be. No matter who it is, McLaurin will get a big share of the targets once again.

  Football Team | Alex Smith officially released    Fri Mar 5, 12:13 PM

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith had mutually agreed to part ways, and on Friday, March 5, it became official with Washington releasing Smith.

Footballguys view: The move has been expected for some time. Smith made a miraculous comeback after a leg injury that was one of the most severe in league history. He should have plenty of interest on the open market for teams in the need of a veteran who can give them experience and depth.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith will part ways with the team in the coming days.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Smith made a miraculous comeback after a horrific leg injury threatened his career (and more). The seasoned veteran should get interest from teams in search of a mentor for a young quarterback.

  Football Team | Terry McLaurin scratching the surface?    Sun Feb 21, 08:24 PM

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin is 'one of the better up-and-coming wideouts' in the NFL, according to San Francisco 49ers CB Richard Sherman, and Sherman believes McLaurin is being held back by Washington's lack of weapons. 'If he had anybody else beside him and they couldn't just double him and cloud him all the time he'd be special,' Sherman said.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Look at what McLaurin has been able to do with average to below-average quarterback play over the last two seasons. If Washington gets a high-quality quarterback then that will just mean better things for McLaurin and his production.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith wants to continue his playing career next season even if he is not with Washington, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: Washington seems to be in the market for a quarterback. They have Kyle Allen and Taylor Heinicke, but they might want a better starting option. That may mean moving on from Smith. He is a candidate to be released because the team would save $13.6 million in salary cap space if he is let go.

Washington Football Team QB Taylor Heinicke signed a two-year, $8.75 million deal with the team Wednesday, Feb. 10.

  Football Team | Washington not pursuing Carson Wentz    Mon Feb 8, 11:03 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has not been the focal point of any recent trade inquiries from the Washington Football Team, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington.

  Football Team | Washington could pursue Sam Darnold    Mon Feb 8, 02:35 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold may receive trade interest from the Washington Football Team if the Jets decide to make him available this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Jets might be moving on from their former first-round pick. He turns the ball over too much and has yet to play up to the potential he showed in college at USC. Darnold could be an option for Washington as they're trying to find a new quarterback of the future after moving on from former first-round pick Dwayne Haskins last year.

  Football Team | Elite company for Logan Thomas     Sun Feb 7, 09:41 PM

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas ranked second among tight ends in both receptions (38) and targets (50) over the final five games, and his 342 receiving yards in that span ranked third at the position.

Footballguys view: Thomas burst onto the scene in 2020. A converted quarterback, Thomas has spent a few seasons getting used to his new position. Last season, Thomas was the no.7 fantasy tight end (standard scoring) and should be a TE1 for Fantasy GMs in 2021.
