This sort of reminds me of when the Green Bay Packers signed Julius Peppers. There was a photo of Peppers walking around Lambeau Field with a big smile on his face.
In my mind, that smile said something like, “Finally, I get to wash off the stench of losing by playing for a real football team.”
Peppers had just spent four seasons with the Chicago Bears, after all.
Earlier this week, the Packers signed defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois. I don’t figure he’ll have the sort of impact Peppers did, but the sentiment appears to be the same.
“Wow, this is what winning and tradition look like.”

Francois just spent the past two seasons with Washington. And yes, I am aware that they have won Super Bowls in the past, but you have to go back to 1991 to find the last one of those.
In recent years, all Washington has done is rival the JV Cleveland Browns for the most dysfunctional organization in football.
And that’s quite a feat.
