3 Washington Players Who Could Be Traded Before Deadline
By Larry Rupp
The Washington Football Team is in the midst of another poor season and look to be on their way to high first-round draft pick once again. They currently have a 1-5 record and may look to shake some things up at the NFL trade deadline.
Washington looks like they will be sellers at the deadline and could make some big changes to the roster. Here are three players Washington could trade before the November 3 deadline rolls around.
1. Ryan Kerrigan
Kerrigan is tied for the team lead in sacks with 3, but has seen his playing time decrease as the season has moved one. The Washington defensive staple turned 32 this past August and may not be as vital to a team that is in the middle of an obvious rebuild. It may be best for Washington to get what they can for him now as he is in the final year of his current deal. Teams are always looking for more depth on the edge and if Washington truly wants to get as many assets as they can to make this rebuild possible, trading Kerrigan for some youth is a good first step.
2. Dwayne Haskins
Washington thought they had found their starting quarterback of the future in Dwayne Haskins, but his time on the team may have just run out. Haskins was benched and even demoted to QB3 following a poor start to the season. It doesn't seem like head coach Ron Rivera has completely given up on the 23-year-old, but it may be best to give Haskins a fresh start somewhere else. Teams with aging quarterbacks would most likely have some interest in acquiring Haskins as a developmental player. Washington has holes all over the roster and trading a young quarterback who has starting-caliber talent may allow them to address some of them directly.
3. Ryan Anderson
Anderson is a player stuck in a situation similar to Kerrigan's. Blocked by young stars in Chase Young and Montez Sweat at his position, Anderson has seen his playing time diminish this season. The former second-round pick in 2017 has shown flashes of great play, as he ended the 2019 season with 4 sacks and 44 combined tackles. There was already some interest from other teams in regards to Anderson in the offseason. If Washington isn't going to give him the playing time, trading him to a team that will would only help the team acquire some value in return in the form of young players or a mid-round draft pick.
