WFT signs WR Antonio Gandy-Golden to practice squad


Antonio Gandy-Golden’s career with the Washington Football Team is not over after it signed the 2020 fourth-round pick to the practice squad on Tuesday.

Gandy-Golden, 23, was released by WFT on Saturday. His time in the nation’s capital hasn’t lived up to the expectations of a fourth-rounder. The wideout from Liberty has played in 10 games in his brief career with just one reception for three yards.

But with the coronavirus still swirling among NFL teams, it is possible Gandy-Golden could return to the active roster should a starting wide receiver be sidelined by COVID-19 protocols. For now, though, Gandy-Golden will remain in Ashburn for the remainder of the season, which ends after Washington's Week 18 game vs. the Giants. What happens after that for Gandy-Golden is anyone’s guess.

The news of Gandy-Golden’s signing to the practice squad was one of several moves announced by Washington on Tuesday. Punter Tress Way was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list along with backup quarterback Kyle Shurmur. Shurmur, though, was promptly released as WFT’s QB room returns to full health with Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen available.
