The Commanders have offered QB Taylor Heinicke a one year, $6 million ($3.5 million guaranteed) contract.
If he accept the Commanders’ offer, Heinicke could probably start six or seven games when something inevitably goes wrong, too.
Washington wants to give Sam Howell a shot to be the starter, but Heinicke provides insurance, especially if it continues with a similar system.
It’s a one-year deal, and with uncertainty about ownership, there’s no reason to push money into the future on a backup QB.
