Ron Rivera Presser: QB and GM situations will be discussed with Dan Snyder soon

Ron Rivera speaks to the media

NFL: Washington Redskins-Head Coach Ron Rivera Press Conference Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 season is over for the Washington Football Team which means it's time to start working for next season. Rivera said this year's team gets it, and they worked hard through a lot of adversity to win the division championship. They did things the right way and he appreciates that.

Two of the biggest decisions facing Ron Rivera and the team are at QB and GM. He will have a discussion with team owner Dan Snyder to let him know his plans. Alex Smith has to decide if he wants to try to come back next year, and the team has to decide if they need to move on from the feel good story of the year. Dwayne Haskins Jr. has already been released. That leaves the team with ERFA Kyle Allen who ended his season on IR after a bad ankle injury. RFA Taylor Heinicke set the world on fire in his 2nd NFL start, but how sustainable is that performance? UDFA Steven Montez has been on the practice squad all year and didn't seem to be in a hurry to let him touch a football.

GM is another big decision that Rivera will discuss with Snyder. There have been plenty of rumors and names like to this team due to past connections. Washington still has Kyle Smith who has been a huge improvement in recent years with his scouting and drafting.
