ASHBURN, Va. — The WFT has hinted to us that they do not plan on “overpaying” as shoppers as NFL totally free company hits this 7 days. But that will not mean they will not be newsmakers. Current by the moment, our Washington Football Group 2021 NFL Free Agency Tracker: Monday early morning negotiations, Wednesday afternoon signings … Information and sights on the roster-building work …
MARCH 22 – That is ADOREE’ FOR THE GIANTS: New York has landed their second significant fish acquisition in the final a few times, signing previous Titans corner Adoree’ Jackson to a 3-calendar year, $39 million deal which is a notch down from William Jackson III’s deal with Washington. Based on stories, it appears to be like New York’s Jackson could be in a position to make extra than Washington’s Jackson centered on hitting all incentives.
MARCH 22 – D-JAX REUNITES WITH MCVAY IN LA: DeSean Jackson has joined the Los Angeles Rams and head coach Sean McVay. McVay was the offensive coordinator and participate in caller for Jackson’s tenure here in Washington and McVay would typically explain Jackson’s biggest talent as his ball-tracking ability in flight.
MARCH 20 – GIANTS GET GOLLADAY: The New York Giants have struck in a substantial way as they have occur to an settlement with former Lions vertical risk, Kenny Golladay. It’s anticipated to be a 4-calendar year, $72+ million offer who will give Daniel Jones a deep-ball weapon.
Our WFT response? The Giants have very long been shy of a weapon like this. Good thing Washington rebounded from the Darby departure with the signing of William Jackson III. Jackson vs. Golladay will be a entertaining one particular.
MARCH 20 – COWBOYS GET Previous FALCONS Protection – The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to a one-yr deal with previous Professional Bowl security Keanu Neal, who reunites with Dan Quinn, his previous head coach in Atlanta. It is really a 1-year, $5 million offer.
Our WFT reaction? Dallas has not often emphasized security enjoy … and Neal may possibly conclusion up remaining a hybrid defender who also plays linebacker, so it’s possible he’s not a traditional security at all. In any party that is even now an offense-significant roster that requirements cornerback aid badly.
MARCH 19: THE EAGLES STRIKE! – The Philadelphia Eagles have not been capable to do substantially but on Friday evening, they struck a claimed a single-yr, $5 million deal with cost-free basic safety Anthony Harris, formerly of the Minnesota Vikings.
At that expense, the WFT surely sniffed around … but passing could also speak volumes on how the team feels about Jeremy Reaves, Kam Curl, Deshazor Everett and likely an early draft decide on at the situation.
Our reaction? Also well worth noting about the NFC East: Where by had been the Dallas Cowboys on this? So obsessed with free brokers Malik Hooker, Damontae Kazee and Keanu Neal that this one slipped by them?
MARCH 19: A RYAN REUNION? Ryan Kerrigan, 32, undoubtedly experienced a eyesight: Say goodbye to Washington – and to getting a backup – to come across a new group and a fantastic agreement somewhere else.
That has not took place still, and we will advise that the for a longer period he sits on the shelf, the more the doorway stays ajar … possibly ever so a little … for his return to D.C.
Do both events wait around until after the prime “tiers” are long gone? Tiers 1, 2, 3 …? Is it an concept that would not be broached until eventually immediately after the WFT has gone as a result of not only absolutely free company but also the NFL Draft?
Kerrigan as a situational go-rusher would, we say, however support an NFL group. There is a probably-slight possibility that the group he may well end up encouraging is the exact team he was organizing on leaving.
MARCH 18: WASHINGTON Brings IN OL DEPTH: Tyler Larsen, who was with the WFT for about 6 months in the 2015 offseason and training camp is returning to Washington soon after paying out the previous five seasons with the Carolina Panthers.

MARCH 17: BYE, NICK “Sad to say,” writes 11-12 months very long-snapper Nick Sundberg on Wednesday morning, “Mentor informed me that I’m not in the designs transferring forward. I comprehend this is a small business but I’m nevertheless unfortunate to shut this lengthy chapter with the Washington football group. I seem forward to the up coming possibility in my job, wherever that may possibly be. See you on Sundays.”
MARCH 17: LAMAR & SHARPE RE-UPPED The Washington Football Workforce is re-signing running back again Lamar Miller. Miller, a two-time 1,000-garden rusher in the NFL, was signed by the Washington Football Staff as emergency help final December as Antonio Gibson was working with injuries. Miller never ever manufactured it onto the field to close the calendar year.
Also re-upping is backup O-lineman David Sharpe, who was acquired in trade at the begin of previous period.
MARCH 16: WFT GOES Huge AT CORNER – William Jackson III has agreed to a a few-yr, $42 million offer with the Washington Football Group, to replace Ronald Darby. The previous initially round pick is 28 years old.
Jackson was a stud early in his vocation but has been typically great since that point. He’s been fairly wholesome given that staying hurt in his rookie year.
MARCH 15: THE Solution IS RYAN FITZPATRICK – For each Adam Schefter of ESPN, Ryan Fitzpatrick, the lengthy-time veteran QB of 7 distinct groups, very last of Miami, has agreed to a deal with the Washington Football Team. It truly is a just one-12 months deal truly worth around $10 million.

MARCH 15: ANDY AND ALEX FLIP? The Washington Football Workforce needs an improve from Alex Smith at QB. The Dallas Cowboys could need to have a replacement for Andy Dalton as their backup QB.
What if each and every group delivers the remedy for the other?
We have floated the title of Smith as a person who, if inexpensive, could be beneficial to the Cowboys as a backup to Dak Prescott. Smith has an previous-timey record with Dallas head mentor Mike McCarthy: McCarthy was San Francisco’s offensive coordinator when the 49ers drafted Smith in 2005.)..
A supply on Monday reiterated to us Dalton’s quest to at the time yet again be a starter. Meanwhile, Smith – who was a $20 million QB in Washington past calendar year – could no lengthier be that.
It really is value noting that there are people below inside The Star who have terrific regard for Alex Smith … and that Dak is among the them.
Dalton – for a decade the very first-staff male in Cincinnati right before signing his a person-calendar year deal back home in Texas a season ago – manufactured just $3 million in base wage in 2020. He is naturally hunting for a superior deal than that, and a rebound to a starting off position in the NFL.
The Cowboys would really like to have Dalton simply appear back. But his first initiatives, as cost-free agency opens, is to be initial-group.
