Quarterback Alex Smith (leg) isn’t going to play for the Redskins this season, and there’s an unfortunate chance he’ll never play a down of football again. And anyone who watched Washington scrambling for quarterbacking answers late in 2018 realizes just how pressing a need this position is heading into the offseason.
Unlike the Dolphins, however, the Redskins own just five picks in this year’s draft. While they at least have all their selections on days one and two, it’s doubtful the Redskins would be willing to ship off what would be a massive compensation package to the 49ers.
Especially considering Washington is sitting at No. 15 overall.
Plus, Redskins owner Dan Snyder and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan aren’t exactly in the habit of sending holiday cards to each other, so there’s that to consider.
