Earlier this week, NFL Draft analyst Tony Pauline reported that Tua Tagovailoa had an “official 45’ scheduled with the Redskins at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine.
Following that report, Les Carpenter of the Washington Post joined Wednesday’s The Doc and Galdi Show on the Team 980/95.9 FM to shed some light upon the latest Redskins news at the combine.
“The buzz I’m getting from a lot of people is who’s going to play quarterback this year,” Carpenter said.
Washington Redskins new vice president of player personnel Kyle Smith spoke Tuesday afternoon, but he didn’t reveal too much about the Redskins’ future plans. He did in fact repeatedly state that he is “really excited about Dwayne Haskins”. However, he did not declare that Haskins would be the starter for next season, which head coach Ron Rivera has also refused to do, leaving Carpenter, Doc, and Galdi wondering what the Redskins are planning.
“Are they married to Dwayne Haskins? Do they feel they want to bring someone else in,” Carpenter asked Doc and Galdi when discussing what the Redskins may be thinking. “Are you interested in a Tua? I mean they’ve talked to Tua apparently. Is that a guy you would draft? Or would you go pursue someone in free agency, who could potentially win that job, not just the guy to be there as a veteran, but a guy who could truly win that job.”
Carpenter expects Redskins head coach Ron Rivera to touch on the quarterback situation when he speaks Wednesday at the combine.
