Washington guard Brandon Scherff moved quickly to sign his franchise tag tender last month, but not much else has happened on the contractual front.

Head coach Ron Rivera said on Thursday that the team is “most certainly interested” in a long-term deal with a player that played out last season on the tag, but that conversations about such a contract have yet to begin.

“Well, that situation hasn’t changed. We’ve got Brandon signed right now, and we’ll see how things go as we go forward,” Rivera said, via Ethan Cadeaux of NBCSportsWashington.com. “We haven’t talked since he signed.”

Scherff is in line to make over $18 million under the terms of the tag and more attention may be paid to his contract once the team gets through the draft.

  1. Brandon was no match against Leonard Williams . Leonard totally dominated him last season.

    ——————————————————————————
    He dominated him, but didn’t have the most tackles, nor the most sacks from his team in either game against the WFT. I wonder why? Perhaps it was because he didn’t dominate. Imagine!

  3. Yeah weird comment.

    Leonard Williams barely even played, and if he did he was blocked from my memory, perhaps it was one of those Daniel Jones fumbles

    Anyways, it’s totally reasonable to wait until the draft, see what’s available and what they might have to fill afterwards in free agency, and once that is set, he will get s long term deal. No doubt

  4. Seems odd. Brandon Scherffi I sn’t talking to him since the signing? Did he try calling? Hasn’t spoke to him since? The head coach/Gm. The literal number 1 person in charge (cue the Synder victims) Seems like a bad move unless he wants to leave. Don’t get hurt bud.

    I imagine the head coach/man in charge talks to star players regularly. At any team. I’ve been wrong before.

  5. Scherff was a rookie at the time but he missed the block that finally ended RGIII Redskins tenure. Just a fun fact not indicative of his largely high level of play.
