Will Commanders allow Sam Howell to be QB1 heading into the season?
Did the Washington Commanders strike gold by adding Sam Howell late last year in the 2022 NFL Draft?
The former North Carolina quarterback set school records for most touchdown passes in a single season, as well as career passing yards and touchdown passes. He was considered by many as a third round pick or better but he did not get selected until the 5th round by the Commanders.
Well, Ron Rivera told reporters, his starting quarterback next year is Sam Howell.
Howell started the final game of the 2022 season after the team had been eliminated from playoff contention, completing 11 of 19 passes for 169 yards with a passing and rushing touchdown in a 26–6 upset win against the Dallas Cowboys. He may be a great addition! We will see, but it looks like he will get his fair shake.
