Washington Football Team July Scouting Report
David Vohs
7/30/2020

Well, the Washington Redskins are no more. As of now, the Washington Football Team is the name for the next year. (I just have to say, I like the two names: Redtails – (Tuskegee Airman nod?) or the Washington Monuments – think how much fun they could have with helmets and jerseys). Anyway, not here to really talk about the name. Both names would be awesome!

The Washington Football Team (WFT) will put the player’s numbers on the helmets this year. I am not sure why not a photo of a football with a monument behind it J

Anywho…

The Washington Football Team has had one player opt out for the 2020 football season. DL Caleb Brantley has opted out. Brantley was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the 6th round after being projected as a second round pick but dropped due to off the field issues. After the charges were dropped, Caleb signed a 4 year deal with Cleveland, was waived about a year later, and the Washington Football Team signed him on September 3, 2018 and placed on injured reserve. On March 23, 2020 Brantley resigned with the team but opted out on July 27, 2020.

The Washington Football Team starts the season with a home game against the Eagles, a road game against the Cardinals, and a trip to Cleveland. Not an easy slate.

Let’s look at the projected starting lineup for the Washington Football Team and we’ll see how this changes during camp (due to injuries and good play).

QB: QB Dwayne Haskins is the clear starter on the team right now. I wonder how QB Alex Smith may play into the role? QB Kyle Allen has a very nice connection with the new offensive coaching staff led by Scott Turner. Either way, with the youngest receivers in the NFL, this group will need some help.

RB: RB Adrian Peterson is back and seems to be unstoppable. RB DerriusGuice needs to prove he can stay healthy and these two will wear teams down. RB Bryce Love can be a very good change of pace back and has skills but needs to show he can stay healthy as well.

WR: Wow, bring the baby bottles to this group. WR Terry McLaurin (24 years old), WR Kelvin Harmon (22 years old), and WR Steven Sims (22 years old). Young core here. They will drop some but hopefully they can do the job.

TE: Logan Thomas - Wow, the former AZ Cardinal QB, TE Logan Thomas has found a home on the Washington Football Team using his athletic skills to switch from QB to TE. The switch was 4 years ago in Buffalo in 2016. Athletic and capable of trick plays, he could be a weapon for WFT.

We will continue to watch this team as they perform during Training Camp.

Go WFT!

End.
