Brandon Scherff’s excited to be in Washington, looking to be Redskin for life – Redskins Wire

Though the Washington Redskins didnt make any major splashes in free agency this offseason, their first roster move of the period may have been more significant than anything else they did all year.

The Redskins placed the franchise tag on right guard Brandon Scherff, keeping him around for the next 12 months at a minimum. Beyond that time period, though, Scherff has desires to be a member of the Redskins for life, and the team is reportedly working to make that happen.

Im excited, Scherff said, via Redskins.com. Im still living out this dream, and Im just glad Im back with the Redskins again.

There were reports ahead of the franchise tender being signed that two sides were working to reach an extension that would save Washington from having to tag Scherff. Though it didnt get done in time, there is still nothing to suggest that those talks arent still being had.

Its gone well, Scherff said when discussing contract talks. Just pretty much sat down and talked to my agent thats what hes there for and I want to sign a long-term deal with them, too. I love it there, and Ive always said I wanted to be a Redskin for the rest of my career. So, hopefully, we can work towards that.

Its unclear when an announcement on that future deal will come; it could be ahead of the 2020 season, or it could be later in 2021 as the current deal nears its end. However, it seems like we can confidently say that its not a matter of when that extension comes, not if.
