Ron Rivera Presser: We’re not desperate. We want to put together a football team the right way.

Ron Rivera speaks to the media

Ron Rivera addresses the media a day after Brandon Scherff was officially given the franchise tag for the 2nd year in a row. Free agency begins a week from today at 4pm. Rivera said the team is not desperate, and they plan to build the team the right way, and add players that can help them win. He is very focused on re-signing players, and that includes Kevin Pierre-Louis along with Scherff.

The Washington Football Team has been very aggressive in their pursuit of a veteran QB, reportedly calling on the three QBs already traded(Matthew Stafford, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz) along with others who could be made available(Marcus Mariota, Sam Darnold). Rivera wouldn’t go into detail, but he did say “we’re out there” when asked. He insists the team still has time to figure it out, but if a new “franchise QB” isn’t found, they will go with the guys that give them a chance to win. He expects ERFA Kyle Allen to be back for the start of training camp.
