#WashingtonFootball team president Jason Wright on Dan Snyder: “The stuff with Dan and the minority owners, I don’t know anything about. And I have enough on my plate. I am happy to work and put in the work, and let Dan handle what Dan needs to handle.”— Chris Lingebach (@ChrisLingebach) January 14, 2021
Jason Wright on the new name/look:— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 14, 2021
"Burgundy and gold should never change, period. That is a core aspect to the identity of this team. The other thing that we've learned is that something random would land poorly." Says it needs to relate to the team's history and the DC area."
Jason Wright telling us that burgundy&gold is staying because the fans love it too much is the right call. His admission that the name will relate to the history of the team - or the area - and won't just be a "random-ass bird" is music to my ears.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 14, 2021
No Washington Pterodactyls.
He said WFT is still an option and is on the table like everything else. I guess theoretically that would satisfy the requirement about being related to the organization or the city because Washington is in the name?— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 14, 2021
I brought this up with him actually. I am team "great place holder but would prefer a real name at some point."— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 14, 2021
Wright reiterates they'll have the interim name through 2021.— Jake Russell (@_JakeRussell) January 14, 2021
A proper launch "is incredibly important. There's literally no way to do that before next season."
"While we might have it before next season, we'll announce it at exactly the right time when all that's buttoned up."
Good nugget in @john_keim’s recent pod : there’s mutual interest between Washington and Ronald Darby in a reunion. They took a flier on him last offseason and it paid off handsomely.— Jordan (@wfteamtoday) January 14, 2021
Another respected name to interview for the Washington Football Team GM job: They are expected to interview #Chargers Director of Player Personnel JoJo Wooden, source said. He heads up pro and college scouting in LAC.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 14, 2021
The Washington Football Team has requested permission to interview Falcons longtime director of football operations Nick Polk for the open GM position, source confirms. @RapSheet 1st there in addition to reporting interest in Chargers director of player personnel JoJo Wooden.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) January 14, 2021
Interesting that 3 of the 4 are all in charge of player personnel. If only Washington had someone in the building in charge of player personnel that could be a GM candidate— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 14, 2021
Sure, Kyle Smith hasn’t been linked with any other jobs yet and they would presumably still want a VP of player personnel even with a new GM. So unless he gets other offers elsewhere, he could stay there in that role. Guess we’ll have to wait and see https://t.co/6AgihNiYdR— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021
In the last NFL agent survey, I asked for future general managers to watch.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) January 14, 2021
New Broncos GM George Paton tied for most votes.
Scott Fitterer, the reported new Panthers GM, received some love.
Same with Ryan Cowden, who interviewed with WFT today. https://t.co/LjoJFPjO3j
Making progress... Taylor saw it on IG and commented that it was “sick” which apparently means it’s not awful. pic.twitter.com/jce3iweB9v— DC Sports Artist (@PaulNicholsDC) January 14, 2021
I see rankings of seasons in the Snyder era. My personal tops:— Rick Snider's Washington (@Snide_Remarks) January 14, 2021
1. 2020. Something happened every week all year.
2. 1999. Won NFC East before Snyder could tamper.
3. 2000. Deion and Co. arrived
4. 2012. RG3 mania
5. 2007. Sean Taylor death, late playoff run.
Minkah Fitzpatrick says the turning point of the season was when they sustained that first loss to the WFT.— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) January 14, 2021
This is with a cap set at the bare minimum of $175M. It will prob rise to $190M. And if Alex retires, like most expect he will, this gives us another $14.5M in 2021 and $22M in 2022. https://t.co/YCLSRMV0GF— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) January 14, 2021
I understand the obvious connection for Curtis Samuel to Washington, but I don’t think it happens. Turner has used McKissic, Gibson, Steven Sims, Wright and even McLaurin in the same ways he used Samuel in Carolina. That’s a lotta guys that already fill that role. https://t.co/OdNHVY60x2— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021
Interesting WFT mock offseason via PFF's Top 100 FA list last week.— Jake Russell (@_JakeRussell) January 14, 2021
G Brandon Scherff (4 years, $60M)
CB Ronald Darby (3 years, $30M)
S Anthony Harris (4 years, $56M)
WR Corey Davis (4 years, $65M)
QB Tyrod Taylor (2 years, $10M)https://t.co/lscirszAR9
Would love for 17 to get to 19. Just don’t think he will https://t.co/sffUTkXqKt— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) January 15, 2021
“JuJu is allegedly looking to move to a bigger market” as a free agent this offseason per @PatMcAfeeShow— WASHINGTON FOOTBALL (@HogsHaven) January 14, 2021

I think trading for a vet is more likely. If you can get a Watson (unlikely) or a Stafford, then do that. If not, and you love a QB like a Zach Wilson that might be available in the 5-10 range, sure go get him. Like being aggressive when it comes to going after QBs you like https://t.co/z3Dtniis9i— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021
I still think minimal. He’d have to force his way out still, which might happen, but I’d imagine he’d rather 49ers over Washington. Dolphins could offer more in a trade too. https://t.co/FTCVZoSIav— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021
If I had to guess now, I’ll guess they won’t be picking at 19 https://t.co/TRM3bnH52a— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021
I’d guess trade it for a vet QB or move up for a QB they love— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021
QB, weapon (either a receiving TE or WR), LT, FS, LB https://t.co/ViyA2XSh9N— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021
I think both Sims stick around, both on cheap deals so there is no point in cutting either. Both have also flashed potential to develop into something more. I think they’ll probably move on from Inman https://t.co/KhKP64Gpue— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021
With the Rivera/Newton connection, I guess you can’t fully rule it out. But I doubt that’s the path they look to go down https://t.co/JeR4WyT6bf— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 15, 2021

Oh... Haskins to Jags?— WASHINGTON FOOTBALL (@HogsHaven) January 14, 2021
Robert Saleh becomes the NFL's fourth minority head coach. He joins Pittsburgh's Mike Tomlin, Miami's Brian Flores and Washington's Ron Rivera.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) January 15, 2021
The 49ers will receive two third-round draft picks (in the compensatory stage) under the NFL's new plan to reward a team that develops a minority candidate hired elsewhere as a head coach or GM, with Robert Saleh's hiring by the Jets.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) January 15, 2021
Wow, compensatory picks for coaches/front office? That’s new https://t.co/Bta137NwKS— WASHINGTON FOOTBALL (@HogsHaven) January 15, 2021
Updated version of our NFL hirings post: The Lions choose Rams executive Brad Holmes as their general manager, making him the league's third minority GM and drawing praise from the Fritz Pollard Alliance.... https://t.co/pdSgtF4mCl— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) January 14, 2021
Also, Jax and WFT should get together a Minshew for Alex Smith swap. Minshew a great fit for WAS offense, and Smith a perfect mentor/coach on the field with scheme experience for Urban's QB draft pick. https://t.co/UoFbO7tMHZ— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) January 14, 2021
The Panthers say they offered their GM job to Seahawks executive Scott Fitterer. https://t.co/qGeK3d7J0D— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) January 14, 2021
Colts GM Chris Ballard on his search for his franchise QB: "Taking one will get y’all off my ass for a little bit, but the second that guy doesn’t play well? I’m gonna be the first one run out of the building ... I promise you that position never leaves my mind." pic.twitter.com/KWyaXhdGOH— Zak Keefer (@zkeefer) January 14, 2021
I feel confident that Doug will be fine and the Eagles won't.— Thomas Moore (@TomAandTom1) January 14, 2021
