Commanders WR makes his thoughts clear Sam Howell

Date:

Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell #14 returns for a pass against the Dallas Cowboys at FedExField on January 08, 2023 in Landover, Maryland.

After finishing the 2022 season strong and nearly securing a playoff berth, the Washington Commanders will have a new starter at quarterback next year in Sam Howell.

Howell has only played one game in 2022, his rookie season, but he seems to have the support of Terry McLaurin, his best wide receiver.

McLaurin said Howell has “taken the bull by the horns” and shown leadership this offseason.

The Commanders moved on from veteran Carson Wentz, who threw just 11 touchdown passes and gave up nine interceptions in eight games last season.

After fracturing the ring finger of his throwing hand in October, Washington went with Taylor Heinicke at QB1, and they stuck with him as a starter even after Wentz was cleared to play again.

Howell, a fifth-round selection by Washington in 2022, was a star in his three seasons with the University of North Carolina Tar Heels.

He started the final game of the 2022 campaign, completing 11 of 19 passes and finishing with 169 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a 26-6 win over rival Dallas Cowboys.

Washington will likely end up with the worst record in the highly competitive NFC East this coming season, but their low expectations will give them the luxury of being patient with Howell, as well as their overall situation.

Still, McLaurin has been one of the conference’s most productive fumbles in recent years, and Daron Payne and Jonathan Allen provide COs with an excellent pair of defensive tackles, both of which won the Pro Bowl last season.
