The Washington Football Team make news in some way 24/7/365. Even on their bye week.
Even though the players and some parts of the organization are on bye, Washington signed a new kick and punt returner to the practice squad on Wednesday.
BREAKING NEWS: Washington Signs a Potential Solution to Their Return Mess
They were also rejected officially by a potential safety addition that they wanted to make.
We cover that story in the latest edition of the "Locked on Washington Football Team" podcast from Wednesday.
In addition to the Eric Reid rejection, we also quickly explored the possibility of Washington trading for Dallas' Amari Cooper via a trade. Our colleague Mike Fisher wrote about Cooper possibly heading elsewhere (Green Bay?) earlier.
In addition to that, 'Touchdown Terry" McLaurin met the media after a 52-yard score against the Cowboys.
Also, how about Cole freaking Holcomb who just lit up Ezekiel Elliott on a blitz and a 3rd down sack?
He also picked off Andy Dalton inside the Washington-10 yard line just before halftime. The throw was behind Elliott but it did go off his hands. Holcomb said he knew what was coming based on film study.
In our daily Google News updates, we went over the pathetic and offensive numbers for the Washington offense through seven games. In a word, YIKES!
Then we wrap it up with a Google news report on the new receiver/returner for Washington.
We didn't know it then but that has a chance to really help the struggling special teams' units for Nate Kaczor and the WFT.
