I'm looking at the Washington Football Team roster and I've already decided that I'm going to watch every single second of their games next season. What a squad!— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) March 19, 2021
The biggest impact on the defense in ‘21 won’t come from free agency. This guy returns! pic.twitter.com/XSRFMk7R2f— Tim Meek (@TimIndySkinsFan) March 18, 2021
To the DMV, from Ryan Fitzpatrick:— Washington Football Team (@WashingtonNFL) March 18, 2021
“I’m gonna give you everything I got.” pic.twitter.com/Rb7QITlk5G
Fitzpatrick said guys like playing with him because he's going to give them chances. "I won't sit there and be afraid to throw the ball down the field." Says that resonates. Also says, "That style of play ... is going away a little bit."— John Keim (@john_keim) March 18, 2021

Ryan Fitzpatrick got jokes pic.twitter.com/BaOju2gHva
More Fitzpatrick. @Lescarpenter asked what it's like going to a new facility, as he's done often. "Is the guard gonna recognize me? Is he gonna think I'm Conor McGregor? Is he gonna think I'm one of those Duck Dynasty guys? Sometimes they let you in; sometimes they don't."— John Keim (@john_keim) March 18, 2021
Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to end up being the funniest QB I've covered. It's not going to be close, I can tell— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) March 18, 2021
Ryan Fitzpatrick's Last 16 starts:— Tae & Todd Washington Football Podcast (@TaeNToddPodcast) March 18, 2021

We just asked @OmarKelly if Ryan Fitzpatrick is better now than he was a handful of years ago. His answer: "No question about it." Says he's a Top-15 QB right now.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) March 18, 2021
Last 16 games for Fitzpatrick:
4,414 yards with 27 TD's and 13 INT's.
Ryan Fitzpatrick said this was the most sought he's ever been in free agency.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) March 18, 2021
Look, I’ve pretty much rooted for Fitzpatrick when he played for his 72 previous teams, this is just going to make things so much simpler— Not Robert Griffin (@Pseudo_RGIII) March 18, 2021
now you can stop commenting ‘sign curtis samuel’ pic.twitter.com/lAax8s8cUH— Washington Football Team (@WashingtonNFL) March 18, 2021

The Washington Football Team made the Larsen signing official - and announced LB David Mayo is on board. Spent the past two seasons with the Giants.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) March 18, 2021
Made 19 starts since 2015 when he entered the league with... wait for it... Carolina.

OK, so now it's done: A one-year deal for CB Danny Johnson with Washington, per sources.— John Keim (@john_keim) March 18, 2021
Washington turned that interest into action. CB/KR Danny Johnson is back on a 1-year deal as expected with the news out this morning as others have noted. Great guy, ideal culture fit here and a helpful depth piece in several ways. WFT still needs more at CB help, but some here. https://t.co/zefuOrWNPv— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) March 18, 2021
Look at these Washington Football Team building blocks, who are all 26 or younger:— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) March 18, 2021

Putting Redskins on short list of teams being smart so far. Long time since we could say that.— Joe Banner (@JoeBanner13) March 18, 2021
Bottom 4 teams on the Improvement Index:— PFF (@PFF) March 18, 2021
Has your team improved or gotten worse? ⤵️https://t.co/1L8qtrirdN
Of the contracts we have details on, so far only 1 team has spent more in first year salary on all their signings than the Cowboys will spend on Dak Prescott alone this year. Dak will earn $75M. Pats will spend $105.3M on 12 players. Jaguars at $69M for 12. Amazing deal.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) March 18, 2021
#WashingtonFootball so far is No. 8 in free-agency spending & yet is No. 1 in @PFF's Improvement Index. Smart, calculated signings of three players who are upgrades but at second- or even third-tier money.— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) March 18, 2021
And maybe I'm alone on this, but I think there's a bigger need to replace Peyton Barber as RB3 than most people realize. Get an RB very late (5th-7th) with fresh legs that can catch in case anything happens to Gibson during the season.— WASHINGTON FOOTBALL (@HogsHaven) March 18, 2021
WFT has arguably the NFL's best defense as well as a top-12 skill group.— Adam Levitan (@adamlevitan) March 18, 2021
Think it's the best team they've had since Dan Snyder took over (aka ruined the franchise) in 1999. Might be their best team since 1991 Super Bowl win.
10 of 11 starters returning for the 2020 2nd ranked D in the nfl with a clear upgrade at CB with Jackson > Darby. All young guys mostly around 25/26 entering prime. Chase Young year 2, Sweat year 3.— Terps21 (@NFLDraftProSco1) March 18, 2021
Building through the draft and signing good players in free agency are not mutually exclusive options.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 18, 2021
Ugh. Forgot about free safety. They have options, but like LT could upgrade.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) March 18, 2021
Extensions for exiting players including Jon Allen also a priority. I'll do better listing next time.

Probably won't come here cause he'll be too expensive I'd imagine, but a backfield of AG, McKissick, and Lindsay would be— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) March 18, 2021
Why did the Matthew Stafford-Jared Goff trade become official today, not yesterday?— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 18, 2021
Goff had a $2.5 million roster bonus due on the second day of the league year, which is today. The #Rams agreed to pay it as part of the trade to the #Lions, per source. A parting gift from L.A.
Williams gets $38.9M fully guaranteed at signing. Another $6.2M will be guaranteed for '23 next March. So deal really is for $60.75 million over 3 years ($20.25 million per). Then ... We'll see.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 18, 2021
(Also, $750K in per-game RBs each year, $100K in workout bonuses starting in '22.)
2020 starting QBs looking for a job in 2021.....— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 18, 2021
Which one of these guys is a starter in 2021, and where?
Who was JuJu’s college QB? Sam Darnold. https://t.co/RHxPvdEcfL— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 18, 2021
The #Bears are releasing veteran CB Kyle Fuller, sources say, a cap casualty. In a tough 2021 offseason, this is Chicago’s only cut due to cap space. A former All-Pro corner now hits the market.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 18, 2021
I think they need it now. I have them over after their recent signings— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) March 18, 2021
Unless Kendall Fuller kicks inside to the slot or maybe plays FS? But I’d imagine Kyle Fuller gets a pretty solid contract— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) March 18, 2021
If I got released four days into free agency, I'd be pretty livid.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) March 18, 2021
Kyle Fuller is hitting the market after a bunch of teams already signed CB's, likely not knowing he was going to become available.
The Bears tried to keep Kyle Fuller by asking him to take a VERY significant paycut, but he would rather test the market, per source.— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) March 18, 2021
The #Texans are releasing veteran TE Darren Fells, source said, after 11 TDs in the last 2 seasons.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 18, 2021
Derek Wolfe: COVID screwed me twice in free agency. https://t.co/M8As6Rwvu9— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) March 18, 2021
New Chiefs OL Kyle Long signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 18, 2021
• $350K signing bonus.
• $1.1 base.
• $50K workout bonus.
Could be a steal for Kansas City.
#Bears WR Allen Robinson has officially accepted his franchise tag, source said, locking in his $18M.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 19, 2021
The Raiders signed Kenyan Drake? Of course they did. Gruden and Mayock are unbelievably bad. Feel so bad for Raiders fans.— Steve (@StevieWFT) March 18, 2021
I like Kenyan Drake the player, but I do wonder why they are making this deal when:— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) March 18, 2021
A - they already have Josh Jacobs and...
B - the role that Drake will fill can easily be filled by a day three pick that costs almost nothing? https://t.co/IugSSHipQy
The #Raiders don't budget or plan. They just sign a bunch of guys Gruden and/or Mayock take a liking to.— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) March 18, 2021

$10.0 M for 1 yr of Will Fuller

contract looked bad on day 1 of free agency & has looked worse each & every day
Carolina released S Tre Boston with a post-June 1 designation.— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) March 18, 2021
Intriguing draft prospect: DII University of Charleston WR Michael Strachan at his Pro Day today measured 6-5, 228 pounds, 85-inch wingspan, 10 inch hands, ran a 4.46 40-yard dash and put up 225 20 times.— Mike Jones (@ByMikeJones) March 18, 2021
Auburn WR Anthony Schwartz didn't break records today at his Pro Day, but showed his speed nonetheless. One scout there had his two 40s at 4.29 and 4.31, another I talked to had him at 4.30.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 18, 2021

This should be interesting: Amazon is going to produce its own Thursday night football broadcasts. Pretty clear league is excited about the innovation and creativity Amazon may bring to a football broadcast.— Judy Battista (@judybattista) March 18, 2021
On conference call about new NFL media deals, big emphasis on streaming as the future of viewing.— Judy Battista (@judybattista) March 18, 2021
From our story on the TV and streaming deals... One source says "it will be easily approved” when the owners vote during their March 30-31 remote meeting on implementing the 17-game season beginning this fall. Another source says ratification is virtually certain.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) March 19, 2021
The preseason is expected to be shortened to three games per team in conjunction with the owners' expected approval of a 17-game regular season beginning with the 2021 season.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) March 18, 2021
NFL TV announcement says that flex games are coming to Monday Night Football. Interesting.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) March 18, 2021
52% of the time that viewers were tuned into Fox last year, they were watching the NFL.

NFL MEDIA DEALS— Eben Novy-Williams (@novy_williams) March 18, 2021
11 Years, $90 billion in renewals from @FOX, @CBS, @NBC and @ESPN.
Roger Goodell has a stated goal of @NFL hitting $25 billion in revenue by 2027. This will help. https://t.co/mFNRnCbdQ1
The NFLPA is celebrating the new deals too. We share all revenue the NFL brings in. We also negotiated a media kicker to receive an even larger share of revenue based off the size of these tv deals— JC Tretter (@JCTretter) March 18, 2021
You are partially right. The funding rule is archaic and has no place in the NFL
Having cap space to spend can be overrated, until teams start trading guys like Stefon Diggs and DeAndre Hopkins or cutting players like Kyle Fuller because they need to pay Nick Foles and Andy Dalton.— Robert Mays (@robertmays) March 18, 2021
