Washington Football Team's quarterback needs don't stop with Ryan Fitzpatrick signing, former NFL GM says

Chris Russell and David Harrison of the Locked On Washington Football Team podcast sat down with former NFL GM Randy Mueller about the team's quarterback situation.

WASHINGTON — Do you think Ryan Fitzpatrick is the answer at quarterback for the Washington Football Team in 2021?

Chris Russell and David Harrison of the Locked On Washington Football Team podcast sat down with former NFL GM Randy Mueller about the team's quarterback situation.

Mueller shares his thoughts on the QB situation that faces Ron Rivera and his team, and how that means the Burgundy & Gold's front office staff will have its radars up when it comes to quarterback talent that may be available across the league. This comes as multiple veteran QBs, like Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson, have reportedly not been happy with their respective team situations.
