The Washington Football Team’s plans at the quarterback position will be revealed at some point in the coming weeks. While they have Ryan Fitzpatrick, Kyle Allen, Taylor Heinicke, and Steven Montez on their roster, they’re largely expected to consider selecting a quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft.

As such, it may come as a surprise that Washington wasn’t at the second Pro Day for one of the top quarterback prospects in this year’s draft.

According to ESPN’s John Keim, Washington isn’t going to be at Trey Lance’s workout on Monday. But as Keim pointed out on Twitter, we shouldn’t be reading too much into their absence.

On the surface, it may seem counterintuitive to not attend a top prospect workout, but it seems that the team has already formulated an opinion on him. And according to the NFL rumors out there, it appears to be a positive one.

So, what does this mean for Trey Lance and the Washington Football Team?

It seems like Washington may be trying not to tip its hand ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft. If they like Lance enough to consider him in the first round, a single Pro Day workout isn’t likely to change that, especially where he already had his first workout

Considering that Washington well may have to trade up to get Lance, not showing an abundance of interest in him could help them out. Potential trade partners wouldn’t be able to leverage them into a massive package because Washington wouldn’t appear to be desperate to get a quarterback. So, that aspect is a potential positive as well.

Either way, don’t view not attending this workout as a big deal. At this point in the process, the Washington Football Team has done their homework. They know who they like and who they don’t. Lance seems to be among the prospects that they would consider in Round 1, so they don’t need to see him again.

Besides, it’s not likely that Washington will land him anyway. They would probably have to trade up to get him, so if they really want him, the team should be spending their time figuring out ways they could move up to get him.

And if they don’t think that’s realistic, then they can devote other resources to figuring out what their plan will be with the 19th overall selection.
