The Facts: Samuel is the centerpiece of the Football Teams' offseason weapons upgrade. The dynamic wideout has proven he can be a threat from anywhere on the field, giving WFT offensive coordinator Scott Turner multiple options in deploying Samuel and star Terry McLaurin together. Turner, who was in Carolina with Samuel for two seasons -- including taking over as OC after Ron Rivera was fired in 2019 -- recently saud the receiver is "high energy" who can improve leaps and bounds. "You can do a lot of different things with him," Turner said. "He's only 24-years-old, I think he's just scratching the surface on what he's capable of."
Diehards Line:Last year, Washington couldn't find a sidekick for McLaurin. Enter Samuel, fellow free-agent addition Adam Humphries and third-round rookie Dyami Brown. The NFC East champs have more firepower to aid new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick than they did at any point last season. Although Carolina didn't make full use of Samuel under his watch, Turner saw how the regime that replaced him in Carolina maximized the talent and he now has the blueprint to how Samuel's versatility can be an asset. It's the OC's job to build upon that foundation in Washington. "Yeah, I'm fired up, man. Curtis is one of my all-time favorite guys," Turner said.
