As was expected, Washington right guard Brandon Scherff has signed his franchise tag tender with the team, locking him down for the 2021 season at the very least, if no long-term contract is negotiated between the two parties.

While the two sides will continue to try and strike a bargain on a long-term deal that will keep Scherff in Washington for the foreseeable future, we at least know now that he won’t be going anywhere in 2021. He will play at $18.03 million if a new contract is not agreed upon.

Washington has until July 15th to try and get a long-term deal done with Scherff, or else he will count towards the salary cap with that $18 million number, and his chances of negotiating a new deal in the future get much harder.
