Stokes, 47, joined Ron Rivera in Washington after working with the coach in Carolina.

Washington will interview 49ers executive Martin Mayhew for the position on Saturday, and requested interviews with JoJo Wooden of the Chargers and Nick Polk of the Falcons.

Washington only has six playoff appearances since 1999, so perhaps it's no surprise that 2020 earned a spot near the top.


The interview request is the first clear indication that the Washington Football Team intends to hire a general manager.

  • Perspective

Ron Rivera can’t build a future with Alex Smith’s rebuilt right leg, but Smith doesn’t seem to want to quit a game he never thought he would play again.

It's unclear whether Smith, who completed a remarkable comeback from a severe leg injury suffered in 2018, will return to the Washington Football Team, or the NFL, next season.

Washington's all-time sack leader is set to become a free agent and wants to be a starter, which the 32-year-old acknowledged probably won't happen in Washington.

Washington sacked Tom Brady three times and forced a turnover but could've used at least one more big play from its strongest unit.

  • Analysis

Will Coach Ron Rivera hire a general manager? Will Alex Smith be back? Will the team draft its quarterback of the future?

The emergency quarterback said he hopes he proved he could hang around in the league a little longer after Saturday night's inspiring performance in Washington's playoff loss.

Tom Brady's Buccaneers got the best of Washington and Taylor Heinicke in an NFL first-round playoff game, but Heinicke had the performance to remember.

  • Perspective

The Washington Football Team defied all expectations this season, showing lots of fight in the process.

  • Perspective

Taylor Heinicke and Alex Smith could both be considered, but neither appears to be the answer on his own.

Taylor Heinicke played well in place of the injured Alex Smith, but it wasn't enough against Tom Brady and Tampa Bay.

Heinicke, who just weeks ago was out of football and studying for final exams to complete his Bachelor's degree, will start an NFL playoff game against Tom Brady and the Bucs.

Alex Smith and Chris White became close friends while rehabbing nearly identical leg injuries. Now White is attempting a comeback of his own.

  • Analysis

Can Washington's defensive line create enough pressure to disrupt the Buccaneers' Tom Brady? Plus, keys for Washington's passing game and defensive backfield.

Washington right guard Brandon Scherff is the Washington Football Team's first first-team all-pro selection since Matt Turk in 1996.

Washington’s young defensive players, many of them 20 years Tom Brady's junior, can’t wait to play against the star quarterback in Saturday night's playoff game.
