There’s the offensive nickname. Not to mention claiming a player off waivers not long after he allegedly beat up a woman — again. And let’s not forget the organization’s unwillingness to pursue a legitimate quarterback — yes Isaiah Johnson Jersey 2019 , there’s at least one out there — with the playoffs on the line. Oh, and while we’re at it, quietly trying to push through a plan for a new stadium that would undoubtedly serve as another raid on the public coffers.Let’s go ahead and give this bunch a new moniker: the worst franchise in sports.Washington’s NFL team has some stiff competition, of course. There are horribly run franchises all over the sporting landscape.Even within its own league, it’s hard to dismiss the not-long-for-Oakland Raiders, who had the gall to announce they were bolting for a financial windfall in Las Vegas a full three seasons before they actually planned to skip town, smuglycounting on the good people of Oaktown being nothing more than silver-and-black-clad suckers willing to support a lame-duck franchise. Now, it looks like the team might be homeless in 2019 after Oakland officials filed a lawsuit to recover some of the tens of millions of dollars they’ve invested in the team and its current stadium.The Raiders deserve to be banished to a season of aimless wandering after turning their backs on Oakland for the second time, trading away two of their best players, and handing the keys to the franchise to broadcaster-masquerading-as-coach Jon Gruden, who has guided them to three wins in his first 13 games.But we’ll still go with the Washingtonians as the ones most faithfully following the path of Be Worst.A brief recap:— Reuben Foster, a troubled young man arrested not once but twice this year on suspicion of domestic violence, was claimed off waivers by Washington shortly after being released by the San Francisco 49ers. While we have little faith that any NFL team really cares all that much about dealing with this scourge on society — see: Kareem Hunt and countless others who’ve had similar brushes with the law — Washington turned the cynicism meter up to full blast before ripping off the knob.— While giving Foster what amounts to a fourth chance (he’s also got a marijuana arrest on his rap sheet), Washington wouldn’t dare consider giving even a second look to a quarterback who had the gall to kneel during the national anthem as a protest against racial injustice. Again Cheap Isaiah Johnson Jersey , Dan Snyder & Co. are hardly alone in the two-years long blackballing of Colin Kaepernick — see: 31 other NFL teams — but the hypocrisy really stands out in the nation’s capital.After all, this team was in the hunt for the playoffs when it lost starting QB Alex Smith to a gruesome leg injury and backup Colt McCoy to a broken fibula. Last week, Washington trotted out the carcass of Mark Sanchez, whose last glimmer of relevance came toward the end of Barack Obama’s first term. A 46-10 loss to the woeful New York Giants (who could’ve seen that coming, except everyone?) led Washington to make another change for what could be their last shot at making the postseason.Exit Sanchez, enter Josh Johnson, who has twice as many NFL employers (this is his 12th team) as career starts (Sunday’s game at lowly Jacksonville will be his sixth, and first since 2011). Johnson gave Washington fans plenty of reason for hope when he declared “just a week ago, I was at home in the hood, chillin’ with the kids, chillin’ with my family and thinking on the couch that I might never play in the NFL again.” Also, he prepped for his new gig by playing the “Madden” video game . Washington would probably be better off just playing the game’s namesake, 82-year-old John Madden, at QB.— While Snyder’s horrific reign as owner — see: only five playoff appearances since buying the storied franchise in 1999 Derek Carrier Jersey , dwindling attendance at the FedEx Mausoleum, the RG3 fiasco, the embarrassing reign of coach Mike Shanahan, and so many other missteps that a full documenting would require transforming this column into book-form — he’s keeping up the push for a new stadium that, like so many others landed by his socialist-loving brethren, would surely require the taxpayers to turn over a hefty chunk of what occupiestheir wallets.The Washington Post reported last week that Snyder is working with the outgoing Congress and the Trump administration to pull off an underhanded maneuver: getting a provision in a new spending bill that would allow him to build on the site of team’s former District home, RFK Stadium. A very Snyder-like move, indeed.— Finally, let’s never forget that awful nickname, the one that Snyder steadfastly refuses to walk away from and won’t be typed out on this keyboard. I checked again with Merriam Webster. Yep, that word is still “very offensive and should be avoided.”Much like Washington’s NFL team.The worst franchise in sports.__Paul Newberry is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.

However, just because the option wasn’t picked up does not close the door on his return to the Raiders beyond 2019.“That does not mean that we don’t want Karl with us this year and in the future,” Gruden said before the Raiders’ rookie minicamp Friday. “All that means is we didn’t exercise his fifth-year option. If you really study the fifth-year option and what it entails, it entails a lot. That does not mean, by any means, that we don’t want Karl Joseph as a captain or a leader on this team, now and in the future.”If we do take a look at what the fifth-year option entails, it would mean the Raiders pay Joseph about $6.5M in 2020. There is very little in Joseph’s body of work that would imply he is worth that figure, unless we believe that his sparkling play will continue forthwith.And if it does, then the Raiders will quite likely offer Joseph a new contract extension at a price befitting his level of play. They will have to compete against other teams to do so at that point, but Joseph will be offered a fair deal and if he leaves it will be because another team overpaid and not because he wasn’t wanted. The Raiders certainly have contingencies in place if Joseph walks; they drafted safety Johnathan Abram in the first round last month and signed Lamarcus Joyner to a four-year deal. Hopefully Joseph will play up to his huge potential in the coming season and earn a new contract with the Silver and Black.
