Taylor Heinicke did not lead the Washington football team to victory in the playoffs last night, but his performance far exceeded most people’s expectations.
Hynek only stayed in Washington for a month, and had been out of the league for more than a year before that, but he completed 26 of 44 passes from 306 yards. Afterwards, Hynek said that he believed he had proved himself capable.
“I should stay in this league for a while,” Hynek said via ESPN. “I’ve been on the other side and don’t play, and it’s not fun, not that fun.”
Receiver Terry McLaurin in Washington agreed with this assessment.
McLaughlin said: “I will be fourth on the team any day of the week, twice on Sunday.” “I hope we will be teammates in the future. That guy plays fearlessly. He will give it to him. Players have the opportunity to play. He expands the range of the game, runs and hits. He will do everything you ask quarterbacks to do in this league. He gave us the opportunity.”
Heinicke became an unrestricted free agent in March and he will provide an offer. He got a chance on a large stage and demonstrated his ability.
