I don’t think Vixens should keep Dehaney either, but is Newton really first in line? Smith was far better than her in my opinion, and even if she is going to become a WD/C she’s done enough at WD/GD across SSN and ANL to get a spot there ahead of Newton.
Anyway, this feels like a pretty good move, especially for Newton. I’m not really sure why they dropped Garrett for her, but she is a better GD option so maybe they’re looking at using Ward a little more at WD next season. The competition is starting to even up a lot which is great.
