Washington is on the verge of hiring Marty Hurney as its next general manager, but the team might not be done shuffling the front office. According to the NFL Network, Washington is expected to add San Francisco vice president of player personnel Martin Mayhew as a 'high-ranking executive with a title to be determined.'

Washington, once again, faces a familiar problem of having to determine who will be its franchise quarterback. Finding the right player for 2021 and beyond is particularly important for this set of circumstances as Washington's promising core could be further elevated with elite -- or even above-average -- production from under center. Washington's window to compete has opened and the team only has a few years before its foundational players like Terry McLaurin and Chase Young have to be paid.

Sometime between Sunday evening and Monday, Washington coach Ron Rivera planned to meet with owner Dan Snyder to discuss the next steps for the franchise. Among the pressing items on the agenda was for the two to address the quarterback position and the team's general manager vacancy, Rivera said.
Alex Smith understood the rationale. After coach Ron Rivera informed the quarterback he would be unable to play in Saturday's 31-23 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to a calf injury, Smith said he knew he wouldn't have had the mobility necessary to extend plays like backup Taylor Heinicke did against Tampa Bay's blitz-heavy pass rush.
Heinicke might not be the long term solution at quarterback for Washington, but Saturday's effort was a reminder of how much progress the rest of Washington's roster made throughout a turbulent 2020 season. They go into the 2021 offseason with something that's been rare for the burgundy and gold in recent years: Hope.
As Tampa Bay lined up to kickoff almost midway through the fourth quarter, Taylor Heinicke sprinted out of the locker room to rejoin his team. Washington's season and playoff hopes had come down to him, and so despite a shoulder injury minutes earlier, Heinicke just had to be out there.

Alex Smith received what he called one of the best Christmas gifts of his life when his external fixator was fashioned into a makeshift Lombardi Trophy. Here's how the gift came to be.
