ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Football Team has been connected with just about every quarterback that has a pulse, except for one.
Jacoby Brissett. The former New England Patriots and probably former Indianapolis Colts QB who is set to hit free agency in a week.
Could he be a target in Washington? Could he be a fit?

Logan Paulsen, a 10-year veteran tight end in the NFL with the WFT along with stops in Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco and Houston was a guest of the Locked On Washington Football Team podcast on Monday with David Harrison and myself and explained why he feels this is a match that could work.
Paulsen's point in general was that the WFT were targeting some big names that are un-obtainable and/or are likely washed up.

Brissett "as a bridge guy" made sense to Paulsen and certainly to anyone because he immediately filled in the gap when Andrew Luck retired after also filling in for Tom Brady as a rookie in New England.
"He has a skillset that fits what the Washington Football Team needs right now," Paulsen said.

Aaron Rodgers in a Washington uniform, some day, is a tantalizing concept - and Rodgers elsewhere in the NFC East is a bothersome one.
NFL Defensive Line Rankings: Washington Not No. 1?!
Pro Football Focus ranked all 32 defensive lines in the NFL and surprisingly, WFT was not the best.

Maybe someday Madden will star in a video like the recent Logan Thomas end zone catch highlight.
About the WFT offense: "He's going to learn it quickly and effectively ...and he's not super expensive."
All of that is probably true. One intriguing aspect of Brissett is deep-ball accuracy.
Don't forget about his third-down prowess as well.
Overall, Brissett is ProFootballFocus.com (PFF) No. 71 free agent and is projected by OvertheCap.com to get a two-year, seven million average per year with eight million guaranteed.
He's 28 and although he's been inconsistent enough to be replaced by hall-of-famers, he could offer a bridge solution to a major problem without having to break the bank.
Nobody should think that's he would be the clear No. 1 but instead -- he would enter a competition with Kyle Allen and Taylor Heinicke for the top spot, something that Ron Rivera wishes he had truly held in his first season at the helm.
A competition for the starting job.
This might be the best combination of experience, mobility, arm and cost that the NFL has to offer.
