WFT coach Ron Rivera confirmed to NFL Network’s ‘Good Morning Football’ that Washington did have discussions about potentially trading up for a QB, but ultimately didn’t want to part with the draft capital it would take.
“It was a big conversation we had, talking about the quarterback position, talking about the young men that we really liked a lot,” Rivera said on NFL Network.
“But we also talked about an opportunity to solidify some other things, and if we dealt too much draft capital, we’d lose that opportunity. And so we just thought, maybe if we slip to the right number, we could go ahead and do it. So there was a conversation. But we really felt strongly about just holding and just trying to fill the rest of the needs.”
