The bye week has arrived for the Washington Football Team and it is time to take a break and look at free-agent targets for the upcoming offseason.
When an NFL team can have a bye in the middle of a season, it gives the players a much-needed rest from the physical beatings their bodies take game after game. We have come to that point in the season when the Washington Football Team will have a Sunday off after several grueling weeks and get ready for the remainder of the season starting on November 8.
For fans, analysts, pundits, and armchair quarterbacks, it is a time to take advantage of the rare time off and look at a multiplicity of stories for the coming days, weeks, and months. Today, we are going to fast forward about five months and examine what Washington could do in free agency.
There are several players that are a focus for today and we’ll take a look at teams that have dire cap situations during the next offseason. Sniping a good player or two from these cash strapped teams is fair game and the WFT has favorable cap room for 2021 and beyond.
We won’t recommend specific players from these teams, but it should be noted that some quality athletes could be released and the WFT could steal them away.
We will have a lot of potential roster moves for Washington to consider during the bye week. First, we will take a look at nine players to target and then we’ll examine nine teams with critical cap situations in 2021 (FYI, the number “nine” here is just coincidental). Let’s jump right in and delve into this free agency analysis.
