The WFT lost yesterday to the Bolts and geezer QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went down with a hip injury after a monster hit.
So, will coach Ron Rivera reach out to his former Panthers QB Cam Newton?
Others might count out Washington now that Ryan Fitzpatrick’s down.
Or speculate on Cam Newton’s landing there.
I’m here to tell you that staff believes in Taylor Heinicke—whose history with Washington OC Scott Turner goes all the way back to Turner’s scouting him out of Old Dominion, then getting the Vikings to sign him as a college free agent in 2015.
He was good in the summer. Is he going to become a 10-year starter in Washington? No. But he’ll be fine in the short term.
