Browning Pays It Forward
In a recent article, I placed Browning on the hot seat in another article detailing five steps the Huskies must do to repeat as PAC-12 Champs. In that article, I note that Browning must throw for over 3,500 yards this season. That doesn’t seem to be too far of a reach after a 3,430 yard season while injured. However, it does take a new perspective in light of wide receiver John Ross taking his blazing speed , 1150 yards and 17 touchdowns to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Even now, the team features wide receivers Dante Pettis and Chico McClatcher. But the team has new talent. And so, it will be up to Browning and new receivers coach Matt Lubbick to develop those new receivers. In summary, Browning will shoulder the responsibility to bring new receivers into the fold. Even as he works with them in practice and in games, each receiver will prepare to step up in crucial moments in games.
After all, Browning is essentially playing the NCAA equivalent of his contract year. Do well, and millions awaits. Fall short, and no lucrative NFL contract.
But as that thought sinks in, don’t fret about the Washington Football team. You can bet that head Coach Chris Petersen has already anticipated the likelihood of losing Browning to the NFL. As a matter of fact, he has doubled down with two top nationally ranked quarterbacks in the recruiting class of 2018.
In summary, the Washington Football is not only okay with Jake Browning playing lights out to get the NFL’s attention. As a matter of fact, the team is counting on it.
