Anderson adds that it would need to be the right deal for Washington, but they are currently exploring trade options at quarterback. 

The three most notable quarterbacks in trade rumors right now include Matthew Stafford, Deshaun Watson and Jared Goff. 

There has been some recent speculation about Washington being a potential landing spot for Stafford, who could be traded in the next week or so. 

There will be some options in free agency this year including Jameis Winston and Cam Newton among others. Newton has ties to HC Ron Rivera and executive Marty Hurney, but it sounds like they’re serious about acquiring a quarterback via the trade market if there’s a deal to be made. 

Washington managed to make the playoffs with Alex Smith at quarterback for most of the year, so it’s not surprising that they would seriously consider parting with picks to upgrade at the position in 2021. 

We’ll have more regarding Washington as the news is available.

  1. I’m going to call it. Washington sends their 1st and 2nd round picks to Atlanta for Julio and Matt Ryan. Needs the cap space, and to rebuild. They will draft one of the big 5 QBs. Adding Julio and Matt Ryan to that offense and dominant defense, then sending Alex packing for a 5th rounder and cap space post June 1, to a team like the Jets, Dolphins, Bengals (who needs a veteran back-up/mentor for their young QBs). Would secure the NFC East hands down. Maybe use a 3rd rounder on the best OL available
