WFT won the game and improved to 2-2 on the NFL season. However, that’s not what anyone really wanted to talk about afterward, especially considering head coach Ron Rivera worked with Vermillion in Carolina and both came over to Washington last year together. While the franchise declined to comment, Rivera was asked about the situation on Tuesday during an appearance on 106.7 The Fan.
“Hey coach, we know the organization’s dealing with an issue with the trainer and I’m sure more details will come out eventually,” host Eric Bickel said. “But what do you say to the people that say there’s always a black cloud over Washington, over Ashburn?”

Washington players surprise head coach Ron Rivera in honor of his one-year celebration of being cancer-free
The team presented Rivera with a $25,500 donation to St. JudeLANDOVER, MD - AUGUST 28: Head coach Ron Rivera of the Washington Football Team looks on against the Baltimore Ravens during the second half of the preseason game at FedExField on August 28, 2021 in Landover, Maryland.
“Well that’s what we’re trying to correct, that’s what we’re trying to fix, but for whatever reason, we just keep getting drawn back into things,” Rivera said. “So, guys, at the end of the day, we’re gonna let this play out and we’ll trust in the system. And we’ll go from there.”
When pressed further about what happened during the raid, Rivera reminded the hosts that he couldn’t talk about it, but he did note where he was when it happened.
“Guys, I can’t talk about this. This is a legal matter,” Rivera said. “And quite honestly, I wasn’t there. I had literally just left to get my car washed.”
Things have been going relatively well for the franchise since they finally changed their name to WFT. Theyand are currently in second place with a long way to go. However, while Rivera and the team will try to avoid talking about what happened, that’s going to be harder to do as more details begin to emerge.

Washington Football Team president Jason Wright explained the team's late-notice announcement of their decision to retire Sean Taylor's jersey. Once again, Washington Football Team executives are embroiled in scandal — or, rather, more scandalous behavior at the top is being expos ed.
