After the NFL Draft concluded, Pitt players began receiving offers quickly. One of those was tight end Matt Flanagan, who is reportedly headed to the Washington Redskins, per Jerry DiPaola of the Trib. Head coach Pat Narduzzi confirmed it later with a tweet.
Flanagan came to Pitt for his senior year after spending three seasons at Rutgers. He didn’t post huge numbers as the Panthers’ passing game struggled most of the season. But he did catch 17 passes for 160 yards, which were both career highs, and his 17 grabs were tied for fifth on the team.
Flanagan wasn’t expected to be selected in the draft so this is hardly a disappointment for him. Good to see that he’ll get a chance to continue his career in Washington.
