The Washington Football Team faced major deficiencies on offense during the 2020 season, especially at tight end and wide receiver. Upgrades for the 2021 season could improve both units.
The Washington Football Team entered the 2020 season with many question marks on offense. A young, unproven quarterback. Concerns about the offensive line. Lack of talent and depth at tight end. Perceived weaknesses with the receiving corps. The glaring shortcomings were constantly being scrutinized by analysts and fans. Coaches and front office personnel could see the problems as well. Changes were needed following the season and the team addressed each offensive unit during this offseason.
The tight end and receiver groups have been the beneficiaries of multiple upgrades in recent months. Washington has been tenacious in free agency and the draft, but was it enough to transform both units? Will they need more adjustments and rebuilding in 2022? For now, most analysts give the Burgundy and Gold a solid grade. There are a few questions that remain, but the additions to both groups appear to be a positive for the team in 2021.
Welcome to the next installment in our series that has been devoted to critiquing each unit on offense and defense in recent weeks. Today, we will examine the tight ends and wide receivers. Both groups have been infused with new talent for 2021, but coaches will have difficult decisions to make when the roster must be trimmed later this summer. Some of the decisions will be unpopular, but that is a good price to pay for talented upgrades. Let’s take a look at what could transpire later this summer.
