Ron Rivera wants open competition for Washington starting QB job
Rivera’s decision is easier now. Fitzpatrick, a trusted veteran, is unlikely to get complacent no matter how the competition goes. Plus, Heinicke is drawing rave reviews after minicamp and looked solid in Washington’s playoff loss last season. Might as well let him see if he can outplay Fitzpatrick during camp and earn the job.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Dellenger has confirmed that the committee is expected to recommend a 12-team playoff.
Sources tell me &that the CFP working group is recommending a 12-team playoff: 6 highest-ranked conference champs & 6 at-large.
The 4 highest-ranked champs get a bye while other 8 play 1st-round games on campus.
Long way from done, but this is the recommendation.
— Ross Dellenger (@RossDellenger)
College football fans have grown tired of watching the same teams compete in the current four-team playoff. Expansion to six, eight or even 12 would help fix such a problem. It would also include more teams from conferences like the Big 12 and Pac-12, both of which have struggle to remain relevant in the sport.
Stay tuned for further updates on the CFP and potential expansion.
