By now, you know the situation like you know your home address: If Washington wins on Sunday against the Eagles, they're in the playoffs, and if they lose, their season is finished.

A side effect of that second, much less fun outcome is that some players' careers with the organization, however long or short they may be, could also end with a defeat in Philadelphia.

Here's a list of the more reputable guys who very well may be preparing for their final game in Burgundy and Gold.

Ryan Kerrigan

The club's all-time sack leader has been involved in trade rumors the past few years and is about to become an unrestricted free agent. Ron Rivera cherishes his leadership, but with Chase Young and Montez Sweat ascending so quickly, there's more than a good chance No. 91 will be playing elsewhere in 2021.

Alex Smith

Whether or not Smith is healthy enough to go in primetime remains to be seen, but either way, the 36-year old's time in DC, and also the NFL, is possibly nearing the end.

His deal is about to become easier to get rid of, and then there's the question of whether he wants to continue on. He's proven to everyone what he set out to prove and might just decide he's ready for other pursuits. Never count him out, however. Obviously.

Brandon Scherff

Scherff's played on the franchise tag during this campaign, so something's going to have to happen contract-wise for him if he's to return to the team that drafted him in fifth in 2015. His detractors will point to his injury issues — he had a three-week stint on the short-term IR earlier in the schedule — but when he's right, he's still so, so useful.


Ronald Darby

Darby joined Washington on a one-year agreement with the goal of re-establishing himself as a skilled corner. While he doesn't have an interception yet, he hasn't been sidelined at all and he has performed rather consistently opposite of Kendall Fuller. 

Washington will likely have interest in re-upping with Darby, though Darby will likely want to let other suitors join the discussions as well.

Dustin Hopkins

The specialist, who has been with the Football Team since 2015, is set to hit free agency this March. He's still as powerful as ever on kickoffs, but he has been slumping when it comes to field goals and extra points.

Rivera opted to stick with him through those struggles as the season was unfolding. Let's see if he chooses to do the same in the spring.

Nick Sundberg

Hopkins isn't the only special teams staple who's up in a few months. Sundberg, the longest-tenured member of the roster, will be joining him.

Now, Sundberg is as steady as they come, so you'd think the decision-makers wouldn't want to go in another direction. You just never know for sure.

Chase Roullier

The 2017 sixth-rounder has been entrenched as Washington's center dating back to the beginning of 2018. Thanks to that, he's in line for a heck of a raise that'll be heading his way soon.

Keep in mind that Washington selected interior lineman Keith Ismael this past April; is he a possible Roullier replacement?
