Breaking down the Curtis Samuel deal for the Washington Football Team.
When the legal tampering period opened on Monday, the Washington Football Team was largely quiet. While other teams swooped in quickly to line up some of the bigger names on the free-agent market, Washington was patient until later at night when they inked Ryan Fitzpatrick to a deal.
Now, each of the first three days of the official start of free agency, the team has landed an important player to play a role for the team. And on Wednesday, they got their best deal of all.
The Washington Football Team reportedly agreed to a three-year contract with wide receiver Curtis Samuel. Apparently, Ron Rivera had tried to trade for Samuel the previous year, so suffice to say, getting him on the free-agent market is a big win for Washington.
There’s not much to dislike about the Samuel signing. He’s 24, the team got him for three years, and he filled a massive need. But there are a few things that really stand out about the deal that make Samuel a great get for Washington. Here’s a breakdown of those facts.
