We Just Got Older But…

We just got older but…

WFT just signed veteran free agent Charles Leno, Jr. to a 1 year,  $5 million contract to most likely start and definitely compete at the left tackle position.

In my previous blog, I lambasted media members for claiming there was a big hole on Washington roster at the LT position. Claiming the disrespect of Cornelius Lucas (who did a good job of us forgetting about Trent Williams at the left tackle position) might be based on name recognition, fantasy stats or even race; obviously my insinuation seemed to miss the mark. Sorry.

Obviously, WFT park thought there was a hole on the left side or were so impressed with Leno and  his visit that they decided to sign the veteran free agent.

Well Leonor is 29 and Lucas is about the same age as this acquisition apparently makes us older or more experience with our offense line unit however you look at it.

Apparently, Lucas was a backup of Leno as they both were in Chicago in 2019.  More of the same, a serious upgrade, name recognition-only time will tell if we have filled a perceived hole with any of these roster pieces.

But we have to be very encouraged that we have a good mixture of young and more experience lineman currently assembling on the roster.

With the drafting of Texas OL Samuel Cosmi, relative youngsters Saahdiq Charles and Gerron Christians to go with some of the more veteran lineman such as David Sharpe, WFT has the ability to keep a mix at the most important WFT unit.

Well for my layman’s prospective I would’ve just gone with the unit as assembled, I cannot be disappointed with adding veteran leadership as long as we continue to acquire youth youth youth.

Havinh high flyers and youngsters looking to prove themselves, coming off what most probably consider a very successful year 1 season for Rivera, now it is more important than ever to let every player know from 1 to 90 that they were part of a 7-9 mediocre record season and not the favorites to take the division in my estimation to the Dallas Cowboys.

We have to prove we belong…For posterity sake as well as paychecks not much has been proven with this roster from Cornelius Lucas to Chase Young to the newest addition, Charles Leno, Jr. and his 0 Lombardi rings.
