The Washington Football Team must find their Quarterback of the future as soon as possible. A trade-up scenario with the Atlanta Falcons would finally give this team their future franchise QB.
The Washington Football Team has had as perfect of an offseason as they possibly could have. They signed a wide receiver that’ll immediately make an impact in Curtis Samuel and solidified their cornerback room with the addition of William Jackson III.
They upgraded at slot wide receiver with the signing of Adam Humphries, they re-signed a veteran running back in Lamar Miller, and they even added a much-needed return specialist in DeAndre Carter.

But, the most important position on the field is quarterback. And currently, Washington has a bridge at best at the position.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is the perfect option for the Washington Football Team, as a one-to-two-season starter. At age 38, in addition to his FitzMagic and FitzTragic play on the field, he isn’t a guy Washington can look forward to starting past the 2022 season.
So, who exactly is Fitzpatrick the bridge to? That’s the question Washington will have to answer.
With recent reports noting that the Atlanta Falcons would be interested in moving back in the 2021 NFL Draft, there’s one team that desperately needs a franchise QB above all else.
The Washington Football Team fits the bill. With no answer under center long term and a defense that has true Super-Bowl level ability in the unit, they must find their answer at quarterback for the future quickly.
Washington can have the best defense in all of football. They can have fantastic skill players around the QB. Still, they won’t reach peak success in the NFL without their franchise quarterback.
Now they don’t have to operate out of desperation, but a strategic move that lands them either Trey Lance or Justin Fields would be the move that can set Washington up for perennial playoff success at the bare minimum.
