It’s starting to seem more and more likely that the Washington Redskins appear to be all in getting a new quarterback for the 2020 season, and Philip Rivers looks to be on their short list of available talent.

Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network reported on Friday that “sources at the Combine tell me they expect the Washington Redskins to make a bid for the quarterback,” with him noting there’s a sense it’ll take a “massive contract” to get Rivers to play for the franchise.

It was just in 2019 when the Redskins selected Dwayne Haskins out of Ohio State with the 15th overall pick, and while he started seven games for the team, he struggled to play at a consistent level behind a terrible offensive line.

Haskins did show some promise and it would be shocking for the franchise to pull the plug on him in less than a year. However, new head coach Ron Rivera stated earlier this week that Haskins isn’t “anointed” as the team’s starter.

Rivers, since his departure from the Chargers, has been linked to the Tampa Bay Bucs, Indianapolis Colts, and now the Redskins.
