ESPN’s John Keim reports the WFT will “strongly consider” taking a quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The team, according to Ryan Fitzpatrick himself, did not sign the 38-year-old journeyman as the unquestioned Week 1 starter.
With the No. 19 pick, Washington could have a shot at Kellen Mond out of Texas A&M, Florida’s Kyle Trask, or even Ohio State’s Justin Fields if QB-needy teams with top-10 picks sour on him.
That is, of course, unless Washington trades up to have a shot at one of the top-five QBs off the board. For now, Fitzpatrick is the likely starter while Taylor Heinicke could see playing time if Fitz struggles in 2021.
