Washington signed Ryan Fitzpatrick on Monday, and it's a move I really like. Fitzpatrick has his flaws -- that's why he never sticks anywhere for long -- but he's had some nice hot streaks along the way, and helped a lot of pass catchers. The next one should be Terry McLaurin.

Fitzpatrick was having a nice half-season for Miami when he was unceremoniously benched, and so were his main receivers. DeVante Parker, as a for instance, had two of his three 100-yard games and 3 of his 4 touchdowns with Fitzpatrick at quarterback.

And McLaurin, as I pointed out here a couple of weeks back, has had one of the better starts to his career of any wideout this century. The 2019 third-rounder has totaled 2037 yards his first two season despite working with a handful of quarterbacks who won't be starting anywhere this season: Dwayne Haskins, Alex Smith, Case Keenum, Kyle Allen, Colt McCoy.

Fitzpatrick has bounced around the league -- to say the least: Washington will be his 9th team, and 8th in the last 12 years -- but he's been wide-receiver friendly. Since 2008, he's been involved in offenses that have produced 13 top-25 wideouts (including a pair with the Jets in 2015, as noted in the Corey Davis writeup yesterday). Fitzpatrick split times with other quarterbacks (e.g., Jameis Winston) in a couple of those seasons and doesn't deserve all the credit. But his resume is decorated with getting the best out of a lot of wide receivers.

Table shows all the wideouts Fitzpatrick has worked with in his years as a starter, who wound up ranking in the top 50 at their position. Includes 10 1,000-yard seasons, and seven more with at least 800 yards. As noted, Fitzpatrick wasn't the only quarterback on a couple of those teams, but a nice track record.

Washington will add another wide receiver, with Curtis Samuel (who of course has a connection with Ron Rivera) mentioned frequently. But no one should be overly concerned about such an addition negatively affecting McLaurin; DJ Moore went over 1,100 yards each of the last two seasons.

Maybe Fitzpatrick struggles and gets benched at some point; that's been his history. At times Kyle Allen, and then Taylor Heinicke in the playoffs, flashed potential to get a shot. But it should primarily be Fitzpatrick. Good news for McLaurin.
