What not to look for
Chico McClatcher will be a starting wide receiver. But which position he plays on that receiving corp is open to debate for now. He is fast and he is experienced. But he is also coming off injury. So that leaves the door open for other players to step up. That is something Ty Jones is doing.
And Aaron Fuller making his case
Each receiver will have a good day. And with each good day, public opinion will lean. But don’t look for the team to make any permanent decisions this early.
Measure twice, cut once
The Washington coaching staff would be well served to leave the “who starts” question open ended throughout the summer to the fall. They can measure not only what the player shows in spring training, but how much of their off-season is devoted to improving for the 2018 football season?
The Washington Football team has a chance to accomplish special things in the upcoming season. To achieve those goals, the team must be ready to win from the opener. That means the passing game must be ready to go. Success starts now, but it is not a single point in time, but a gauntlet of hard-work and dedication over the course of many months. Selecting primary receivers requires evidence over those many months. The team will only be good if the right players become a winning team.
