For everyone except those actually involved, these two Monday deals belong to the “minor” department, but they signal a continuing change in the Washington football team’s receiving corps.
The WFT announced a pair of roster moves as the football team released wide receivers Jeff Badet and Trevor Davis on Monday.
Badet, for his part, does not seem to approve of the move, saying on Twitter, “It was a mistake” before thanking coach Ron Rivera for the WFT opportunity.
There’s not much room in this room for receivers, of course, a group led by historian Terry McLaurin and new free agency addition Curtis Samuel. Additionally, the WFT used the weekend NFL Draft to nab two more prospects in North Carolina wide receiver Dyami Brown (taken in the third round on Friday) and BYU wide receiver Dax Milne (taken in the seventh round). Saturday).
The quick Badet – who once led a 4.27 40 – entered the NFL in 2018 as an undrafted free agent from the University of Oklahoma. He signed with the Washington practice squad in September, then rebounded between the bottom of the roster and the practice squad.

After the 2020 NFL season, Badet was held up when he signed a reserve / futures contract that made him – himself temporarily – a member of Washington’s 90-man roster.
Davis actually has a slightly better pedigree as he was once a fifth-round pick for the Green Bay Packers. But he did not appear in a game with the WFT after signing on the training squad in October.
The WFT will have bigger changes along the way when it comes to the receiver room … and some big time slot competition ahead for the slots behind McLaurin and Samuel as well.
