NFL Trade Rumors: Redskins were interested in trading for QB Joe Flacco

NFL Trade Rumors: Redskins were interested in trading for QB Joe Flacco

Flacco in Washington? The Redskins have one of the most difficult, and broken QB situations in the NFL heading into the 2019 season. Alex Smith is unlikely to play this year after breaking his tibia and fibula and then enduring several surgeries to deal with infections.

The Redskins are reportedly working to re-sign Johnson, but the McCoy/Johnson pairing isn't exciting enough for an owner like Dan Snyder and a president like Bruce...
