The Washington Football Team has announced their 5 team captains for he 2020 season. QB Dwayne Haskins Jr. said a month ago that one of his goals this year was to be named a captain, and he has reached that goal. Haskins has been impressing everyone with his work and commitment this offseason. From transforming his body, to diving into the playbook, organizing workouts with his receivers, and showing the leadership Head Coach Ron Rivera wanted to see from him. Haskins earned the starting QB job, and now he has earned the C on his jersey.

Brandon Scherff returns for his 6th year in Washington, but this season will be played on the franchise tag. He has always had the respect of fellow players and coaches, and now he has been named a captain again. Scherff has suffered season-ending injuries the last two years, and is looking to lead Washington’s new offense this year.
The defense defense features two returning team captains. Jonathan Allen has really stepped up as a strong voice for the defense, and a positive influence on younger players. Allen doesn’t like losing, and he will let you know that very clearly. Landon Collins has been the most stable player in Washington’s secondary. He continues to lock down his starting spot, and work with whatever the team throws his way.
And then there’s S Deshazor Everett. He seems like he’s been the special teams captain for the last decade here, and he keeps that C on his jersey for another season. Everett signed a 3-year extension with the team in November, and it looks like he’ll be around for a while.

The 2020 @WashingtonNFL captains were decided strictly by player vote. That tells us Haskins' teammates believe in him entering 2020. https://t.co/mfxCKScEBZ— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) September 9, 2020
