Alex Smith has been named the Associated Press' Comeback Player of the Year.
This one was pre-ordained after 36-year-old Smith's miraculous recovery from a 2018 compound leg fracture that ended up requiring 17 surgeries due to a host of complications. The football was not necessarily scintillating — never an aggressive player, Smith was understandably even more conservative in 2020 — but Smith was the best quarterback on the Football Team's division-winning roster. Smith is undecided on returning in 2021. The Football Team has signaled it will probably go another direction at starter, but Smith's experience and brainpower would be invaluable in a backup.

Washington re-signed QB Taylor Heinicke to a two-year, $8.75 million contract.
Heinicke signed to the practice squad in December and replaced Dwayne Haskins as Alex Smith's backup. He started Washington's Wild Card loss with Smith injured, throwing for 306 yards with an interception and two touchdowns. Washington likely would have used a second-round tender on Heinicke, so this is a nice raise. With Kyle Allen an exclusive rights free agent and Alex Smith’s future up in the air, Heinicke has an outside chance to compete for a starting role in 2021.

NFL officials denied reports that an investigation into the Washington Football Team recommended that Daniel Snyder be forced to sell the franchise.

Someone at 106.7 The Fan supposedly got their hands on the 130-page report, and NBC Sports' JP Finley said the top recommendation of the report is to "force the owner to divest his ownership of the team." The second recommendation, if the league doesn't want to force Snyder's hand, is reportedly to suspend Snyder "for a signifiant period to allow time to repair its infrastructure and culture." An NFL spokesperson told CBS Sports' Jonathan Jones that the report is "absolutely false" and that the league has "received no such report." Investigators are looking into Snyder and the team's toxic culture. Snyder has been accused of denigrating women in the organization and making unwanted sexual advances. Fifteen former female employees have alleged sexual harassment during their time working for the Washington Football Team.

I would be interested in hearing from the reporter which quote came first

'' I am ringing for comment on the report on Dan Snyder''

The first response should be '' what report we have received no such report'' followed by 'please dont call me again as this is absolutely false'

Because the other way around means you have confirmed the existence of the report but the allegation of stepping down is false then the backtrack

Washington Football Team owner Dan Snyder is buying out the team's minority owners.
The New York Times reports NFL owners next week are expected to approve a waiver that would let Snyder take on an additional $450 million in debt in order to buy out the Football Team's minority owners, who would get around $875 million for 40.5 percent of the team. This would end one of the ugliest, most protracted ownership battles in league history. The buyout comes as an investigation into sexual misconduct within the organization concludes. The team in 2009 paid a female former employee $1.6 million in a confidential settlement after the woman accused Snyder of sexual misconduct. Many women who have worked for the team have said Snyder regularly denigrated women employees. He will have to repay the $450 million by March 2028, according to the Times. Washington fans can look forward to many years -- perhaps decades -- of Snyder, 56, owning 100 percent of the storied franchise.
