The team as usual doesn’t handle trades and asset management well.

We are improving in the draft and that’s a godsend but we have to be able to move on from players in a way that captures their potential maximum value and avoid seeing them walk away for no compensation.

Whether or not they are ...

More than one thing can be true at the same time (and usually is). The team can value Kerrigan greatly, and still see benefit in trading him. Kerrigan can want to stay in DC, but still see it in his best interests to seek a trade to another team. The front office can be highly capable, and still end up losing a great player.

Folks always seem to need to find a bad guy. Sometimes, there just isn't one.

I think that's a little premature and based more on history than now. I agree they should move on from him - but it takes two to tango. Can't fault the FO in this scenario if there is no serious interest. TBD and I'm withholding judgement.

in the sense of clarity i CANNOT find this blurb anywhere. It was posted on Twitter. I do not see a tweet or story from Schefter posted anywhere.

Well, being willing to trade Kerrigan and asking for the moon is not really being willing to trade him in a practical sense.

Ditto with Haskins.

If Washington’s right price is a #1 pick or high #2 in 2021 than there probably aren’t going to be any serious nibbles.

At that price teams can wait until April and draft a player that has 5 years of control rather than 2 or 3.

BD - asked with love - but where on earth are you getting that info from? We have no idea what they are asking for him (or if anyone has even contacted them about Kerrigan) - the current word is that no one has.

I'm on record with thinking moving Kerrigan is the best thing for the long-term. I'd take whatever I could get for him. But quite possible teams know Kerrigan is unlikely to re-sign and figure giving up a draft pick (of any kind) is unnecessary. If that's the scenario, I don't see what other option the team has other than keep Kerrigan and accept him leaving as an inevitability.

I was sure teams would be clamoring to get a first round QB on the cheap for another three years. You know... considering how he was supposedly done dirty here and stuffs.

I can’t figure out what he brings to the table for any news organization. He’s so wrong on so many things. Does he get anything right? I guess he creates content and discussion for them and that’s they they want. But he is horribly wrong so many times.
