New QB excites Fletcher
The Redskins’ aggressive pursuit of a franchise quarterback before the draft helped convince linebacker London Fletcher to re-sign with the team this offseason.
“I’m in my 15th season,” Fletcher, 37, said. “To go into another year with not having a quarterback was not very appealing to me. I’ll tell you that.”
“I think I like our talent our football team,” he said.
• Right defensive end Stephen Bowen had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in mid-April. He expects to be fully healthy in a few weeks.
• Cornerback DeAngelo Hall was the only player on the roster who was absent from Monday’s voluntary workout. The reason for his absence was unclear. Shanahan did not speak to reporters.
