Washington Football team officials are in talks to find a new stadium after the team’s lease with FedEx Field ends in 2027.
The announcement comes just weeks after a railing holding back fans collapsed next to the Philadelphia Eagles tunnel as quarterback Jalen Hurts walked past.
It was not the first time the WFT had found themselves in hot water with their stadium failing to meet high standards.
In the team’s home opener in September, a pipe burst in the stadium, showering fans with water during the game.
The conditions on the ground were also questionable. A number of players suffered serious injuries at FedEx Field, including Washington quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was signed in the offseason to be the team’s quarterback for the season. Defensive end Chase Young also tore his ACL in a home game earlier this year.
If the WFT were to move, it is targeting several Virginia sites including Loudoun and Prince William.
In this episode of “Locked On Washington Football Team”, host Chris Russell and David Harrison discuss the team’s potential move from Landover to Virginia.
The pair also talk about Malik Willis and the possibility of the WFT drafting him with the No. 11 pick.
Chris and David also discuss this weekend’s divisional round games and which teams they think will qualify for the conference championships.
