I bet he will regret for made decision because he kept exploiting franchise tag rule because he won't have 2 good receivers. He now has to prove that he can lead Redskins to playoffs and must improve 3rd down situation and red zones which he's one of worst qbs.

If he can't improve on those areas, Redskins will have no problem to get rid of him then will draft qb. He will be literally Fitzpatrick II.

i mean we were the team that kept putting it on him

hes already gotten paid quite well, and more than likely will next year unless he totally bombs it. if anything its us who missed out if he potentially becomes a big deal, but he likely wont and both sides will walk away better than they were before

I don't think you understand how the franchise tag works.

While his receivers may have helped him that's not what is happening here. Literally no one thinks he's worth ones of these 5 year $25 million contracts. And he isn't. The Redskins are really the ones that got burned here with him playing on the tag twice cause it's clear they don't want to pay him a contract in that area.

Regardless, I can name several teams who would pay him that much next year, given the chance.

And yes, Washington completely f***ed themselves over it.

What are you thinking about so deeply in the face of fact?

He'll be in San Fran next year.

we are gonna walk away having given 3x as muhc money away than we needed to, for a guy who was never gonna be here long term and still didnt get us to a single playoff win

Like we are known for bombing in free agency, but this is no doubt our biggest bungle since Haynesworth market wise. We robbed ourselves and Kirk Cousins is gonna start over somewhere else and get a modest deal from a QB starved team

As a Browns fan, I'd want him, but then again most of our QBs since Bernie have been putrid to barely "good" (which has only happened a few seasons).

However, signing him to a 5-year contract worth $125M isn't all that smart. I don't think he's "elite" good.

I think the Skins have played this about as well as any team could. They don't/didn't have complete faith in him, so they cut him the franchise checks, no big deal.
