27. Washington Football Team (finished 30)
What I said at the end of last season:
"The [redacted] are interesting because they have all the makings of a team that takes a big step forward this offseason. I mean, they are probably going to end up with Ryan Kerrigan, Chase Young and Montez Sweat which is an outstanding group of EDGEs. On top of that, the battery of Dwayne Haskins to Terry McLaurin should be one that keeps the Washington offense interesting. However, I have the same problem with Washington that I have with Cincinnati and that is that the front office and ownership can’t be trusted to do the right thing. Why would a talented free agent or coach go there when they could go anywhere else and probably have more success?"
Washington did what they had to do during the offseason and made a lot of safe moves when they were able to. Chase Young was a gimme, adding Saahdiq Charles will help, and the additions of Antonio Gandy-Golden and Antonio Gibson add some intrigue to the skill positions.
Still, this team is going to be decided by how Ron Rivera and that extremely talented group of defensive linemen and EDGEs do. If they can be the 49ers 2.0, then maybe there is hope for this team.
