Foster on waivers didn’t come without dissenters. Which means that John Riggins Jersey , in time, the naysayers could prevail.Les Carpenter and Kareem Copeland of the report that Washington “decision-makers were said to be divided” on whether to claim Foster., and that the front office was “far from unanimous.”Team president Bruce Allen “masterminded” the decision, according to the report.That term implies that a level of complexity and nuance that a decision to pick up a player who has been discarded by another rarely has, but it’s not every day that a former first-round pick is available for reasons independent of his football skills. If, as it appears, there were team employees who didn’t want Foster, Allen had to find a way to get others in line with the move.Whether they stay in line with the move remains to be seen. Given the widespread criticism of the acquisition of Foster, plenty of front-office personnel who were saying “no” on Tuesday may be declaring “I told you so” today. And if the so-called mastermind can’t hold together a fragile consensus, Foster could be one negative report away from becoming a former member of the team.Regardless of whether Allen made it happen, the decision sticks squarely to owner Daniel Snyder. Viewed as renegade last year when he supported the effort of Jerry Jones, fueled in part by a six-game suspension levied against Ezekiel Elliott, to block the Commissioner’s extension, Snyder’s acquisition becomes a middle finger to the powers that be, taking attention away from football and giving the media a non-football issue that has been discussed and dissected in a way that makes the team and the league look bad. ASHBURN Montez Sweat Jersey , Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have signed offensive tackle Ereck Flowers to a $4 million, one-year contract.Flowers becomes Washington’s new swing tackle behind Trent Williams and Morgan Moses after Ty Nsekhe left to sign with the Buffalo Bills. The team announced the deal with Flowers on Monday after agreeing to terms with receiver Brian Quick and finalizing a two-year contract with running back Adrian Peterson.The Redskins are Flowers’ third team after three-plus seasons with the New York Giants and then half a season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Flowers, 24, was moved from left to right tackle with the Giants after they signed Nate Solder, he lost that job two weeks into 2018 and was released.Flowers has struggled to live up to expectations since being the ninth pick in the 2015 draft. He does bring experience to Washington’s offensive line having started 55 of his 59 NFL games, including seven at left tackle for Jacksonville.Washington is beginning to replenish some of the depth it lost in free agency. Quick, 29, could be counted on to replace receiver Maurice Harris, who was not tendered a qualifying offer and signed with the New England Patriots. Longtime slot receiver Jamison Crowder also signed with the New York Jets.Quick returns to the Redskins after playing with them for parts of the past two seasons. The Redskins signed Quick as a free agent before the 2018 season. He has appeared in 17 games for them, making nine catches for 94 yards.In seven NFL seasons with the Rams and Redskins, Quick has 114 catches for 1,593 yards and 10 touchdowns.The Redskins announced the $8 million, two-year contract with Peterson that was agreed to last week. Peterson rushed for 1,042 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 games at age 33 and now will combine with Derrius Guice and third-down back Chris Thompson in Washington’s backfield.
