  Redskins | Alfred Morris the guy, likes the offense    Wed May 27, 11:15 AM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has been declared the feature back by Redskins head coach Jay Gruden. Washington added third-round draft pick RB Matt Jones, which fueled speculation about Morris' job security. Gruden said Jones adds depth and that it is important to have several capable running backs.

Footballguys view: It seems like a few times a week since the draft, we've seen a positive story about Jones. The rookie is a big back with a bruising style, but Morris is still the main man for Washington. The team is going to use a power-running system, which goes away from what Morris performed best in (zone blocking) during the last few years. However, in college at FAU Morris was a standout in the power-blocking system and should have no problem making the adjustment.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed injured again?    Tue May 26, 04:55 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) is experiencing knee soreness after the first day of organized team activities Tuesday, May 26, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Reed is getting checked for knee soreness, and there's no word on the severity at this time. A talented player, Reed's pro career has been set back by injuries over the last two years. His current ADP is TE20 (13.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III regressing    Sat May 23, 06:25 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III can't blame his regression on injuries, according to head coach Mike Shanahan. 'I don't think getting hurt has anything to do with it,' Shanahan told WJFK in Washington Friday. May 22. 'I think what you do is you rehab yourself and you get better. ... You don't have to have great running ability to run the read-option. You have to be able to know when to slide, when to throw the football away, depending on if you're running or passing,' said Shanahan.

Footballguys view: Things didn't end well for Shanahan in Washington. We feel Griffin is worthy of one more season at the top spot. This is a make-or-break season for him, and he needs to be more consistent, stay healthy and make better/quicker decisions as a passer.

  Redskins | Ryan Kerrigan has surgery    Wed May 20, 05:13 PM

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (knee) has undergone arthroscopic knee surgery and will miss some of the organized team activities, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We think Kerrigan will miss most of the OTAs as Washington prepares for 2015. He's in extension talks with Washington, and this knee scope could impact those negotiations. However, we think Kerrigan should be ready in time for training camp.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris auditioning for new team?    Wed May 20, 12:03 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris enters the final year of his current deal, according to Spotrac.com. The Redskins selected RB Matt Jones in the third round of the NFL draft, which could signal an impending departure of Morris in 2016.

Footballguys view: Everyone seems to be high on Jones at this time, but we'll have to see the rookie wait for his turn this year as Morris is still the top back for Washington. Morris has been a rock-solid starter for Washington over the past few years. A sixth-round pick out of FAU in 2012, Morris has 3,955 rushing yards so far in his pro career. His numbers were slightly down in 2014, but Morris is still a decent RB2 for fantasy owners. Morris has a current ADP of RB14 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Matt Jones ready to compete    Tue May 19, 02:06 PM

Washington Redskins rookie RB Matt Jones said he's ready to compete with anybody who's in front of him, that being RB Alfred Morris. Jones added that he has a chip on his shoulder because of how he was underutilized in college.

Footballguys view: Jones is certainly getting a ton of press this offseason. He's a big back, and Jones can grind down an opponent with his relentless style. Jones is not creative or elusive at the second level of the defense, and that's why he's more of a grinder instead of a true feature back.

  Redskins | Make roster moves    Mon May 18, 04:38 PM

Washington Redskins QB Connor Halliday and WR Tyler Rutenbeck were waived Monday, May 18. The Redskins also signed QB Hutson Mason.

Footballguys view: Halliday apparently retired before his pro career began. Mason is a camp arm only, and we feel he'll eventually wind up in another league (CFL, AFL) if he wants to continue playing football.

  Redskins | Matt Jones gives WAS depth     Mon May 18, 02:12 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones will be helping take some of the load off RB Alfred Morris this season. 'If you want to commit to running the football, you [got to] have a couple guys that can tote it,' head coach Jay Gruden said.

Footballguys view: Another day, another Matt Jones story. He's a power player with little nuance to his game. Jones is efficient with his style (and has the capability to be a decent receiver), but we don't see him being a true bellcow back at the pro level.

  Redskins | Matt Jones loves the offense    Sun May 17, 10:18 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones said that he loves the offense and has a chip on his shoulder after not being used properly while in college. 'My college career wasn't what I wanted it to be (because) of the offense I was in,' Jones said Saturday, May 16. 'I love (Washington's) offense. I love getting downhill. I think that's what they drafted me for. I can add more size, more catching out of the backfield, more blocking. I feel like I can do it all and complement Alfred Morris at the same time.'

Footballguys view: We could see Jones get some playing time when Morris needs a breather. At this time, there's no need to think that Jones is going to have anything more than a complementary part-time role. Some have compared Jones' skill set to Marshawn Lynch (ugh), but we compare Jones to former Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis....and he's a poor man's version at that.

  Redskins | Evan Spencer misses minicamp    Sun May 17, 08:50 PM

Washington Redskins WR Evan Spencer (hamstring) did not participate in rookie minicamp Saturday, May 16.

Footballguys view: The sixth-round pick out of Ohio State is primarily a possession receiver with limited explosiveness off the line of scrimmage or in and out of his breaks. The team will monitor him closely so they don't bring him back too soon. Spencer is a team-first guy, a hard worker and comes from a football family. His dad, Tim Spencer, is the running backs coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his brother is an area scout for Washington.

  Redskins | Matt Jones shows versatility    Sat May 16, 09:59 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones ran crisp routes and showed good hands out of the backfield during rookie minicamp.

Footballguys view: Jones was used sparingly as a receiver in college at Florida with only 19 receptions over three years. He did flash the ability to snare passes quickly, secure them cleanly and get upfield smoothly. Apparently, he's getting more of a chance to showcase that skillset in rookie minicamp.

  Redskins | WAS invites two QBs to minicamp    Sat May 16, 03:38 PM

The Washington Redskins have invited undrafted free-agent QBs Huston Mason (Georgia) and Anthony Neyer (Southern California) to participate in the team's rookie minicamp this weekend on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Mason is nothing more than a camp arm in our eyes. Neyer on the other hand is kind of interesting in a Matt Cassel sort of way. During his senior season at USC (after walking onto the football team), he played in just one game, rushing twice for five yards. Neither are likely to do much of anything at the pro level.

  Redskins | Connor Halliday retires    Sat May 16, 03:30 PM

Washington Redskins QB Connor Halliday has announced his retirement.

Footballguys view: We just hated to see Halliday suffer season-ending and career-threatening leg injuries last year. In college at Washington State he was a prolific passer, throwing for a school-record 11,304 yards -- along with 90 touchdown passes in 35 games. He was an interesting undrafted quarterback to keep an eye on in super deep dynasty leagues, but he chose to lead his life in a different direction.

  Redskins | RG III's benching meant to send message    Fri May 15, 12:23 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was benched last season, in part, to set him up to succeed in 2015. The team wanted him to lose his sense of entitlement to his opportunities.

Footballguys view: It's do or die for Griffin, and Washington really has no other options they can expect to perform well if Griffin fails. Alfred Morris and DeSean Jackson are on shaky ground with respect to the quality of their surrounding offense.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris may land new deal    Thu May 14, 09:58 AM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has a 50% chance to land a contract extension with the team, in the opinion of beat writer John Keim. Morris is in the final year of his contract.

Footballguys view: Washington drafted Matt Jones (Florida) in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft, but they still may decide to keep Morris around. Morris has been productive for Washington with 3,955 rushing yards over the last three seasons. His numbers have dipped slightly during that time, but Morris is still a RB2 for fantasy owners. His current ADP is RB15 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Brandon Scherff signs rookie deal    Tue May 12, 12:53 PM

Washington Redskins OT Brandon Scherff signed his rookie deal Tuesday, May 12. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Passing on DT Leonard Williams (Jets) could come back to haunt Washington. Scherff will start on the right side for the team and help their power up front. He's an incredibly strong prospect with the ability to pancake his opponent. Scherff needs to clean up his pass-protection ability (kickslide, balance) in order to play up to his potential as a pro.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin to make strides in '15?    Mon May 11, 04:35 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III should be comfortable enough with the offense to improve this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'Everything should come a lot more natural for [Griffin], and hopefully, we see that transition from year one to year two in this system with the terminology and knowing where to go with your footwork and anticipation of getting the ball out quicker,' Gruden said.

Footballguys view: It's a make-or-break year for Griffin. Washington picked up his fifth-year option so they can keep him around in 2016....if he plays up to his potential this year. Fantasy owners should consider Griffin a QB3 with QB1 upside if he can get his career back on track. His current ADP is QB25 (14.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Matt Jones the future in Washington?    Sat May 9, 10:12 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones was compared to Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch by general manager Scot McCloughan because of his love of contact and downhill running style. McCloughan also said he expects Jones' snaps to increase in December and January.

Footballguys view: Let's slow down here on the whole 'Marshawn Lynch' comparison. Todd Gurley (Rams) is the next Lynch in our eyes. Jones is more of a younger version of Benjarvus Green-Ellis. We question the rookie's vision as a runner. He loves to blast it between the tackles, but Jones often misses wide open cutback lanes. We don't see that skill getting stronger as a pro...not so long as Jones 'runs blind' and only looks for contact.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder to compete in slot    Wed May 6, 11:41 AM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will compete for WR Andre Roberts' roles as slot receiver and punt returner in training camp. General manager Scot McCloughan said Crowder is an excellent route runner.

Footballguys view: Crowder is a good (not excellent) route-runner who can get instant acceleration off the line of scrimmage. Undersized at 5'8" 185 pounds, Crowder can get pushed off his route by physical cornerbacks. He's more quick than fast and a player that has drawn comparisons to Eddie Royal (Bears).

  Redskins | Alfred Morris still the lead back    Sun May 3, 07:54 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris's role won't be impacted by rookie RB Matt Jones, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'Alfred's still the running back here,' Gruden said. 'He's had three great seasons and that won't change.'

Footballguys view: Jones is not much of a threat to Morris in our opinion. He's a one-trick runner as a downhill power back. In fact, we like Jones more as a bruising fullback than we do a running back at the pro level.

  Redskins | Unlikely to take Randy Gregory    Fri May 1, 05:44 PM

Nebraska DE/LB Randy Gregory is not expected to be a draft target for the Washington Redskins, in the opinion of John Keim, of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: His off-field issues are spooking Washington - which spooks most of us given some of the decisions Washington has made in the past. At the end of the day someone will pull the trigger on a talent like Gregory. It's just a matter of time Friday night.

  Redskins | Brandon Scherff selected fifth overall    Thu Apr 30, 08:39 PM

Iowa OT Brandon Scherff was selected fifth overall by the Washington Redskins in the 2015 NFL Draft Thursday, April 30.

Footballguys view: A little early given the fact that these offensive tackles are not as good as the preceding classes, but they needed to shore the line up. Scherff can step in as a guard or immediately in at right tackle and help keep Robert Griffin III upright.


  Redskins | Dante Fowler targeted by Washington    Thu Apr 30, 09:07 AM

Florida LB Dante Fowler is being targeted by the Washington Redskins at No. 5 overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Fowler is one of the best pass-rushers in this class, and he should easily be a top-10 pick. He can set the edge as a run-defender, and Fowler has multiple moves to get after the quarterback. Washington needs to create more defensive pressure this season, and Fowler would be a fine pick at 5th overall.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin's option picked up    Mon Apr 27, 12:45 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's 2016 option was picked up Monday, April 27. He will make $16.2 million in 2016, and he'll have a base salary of $3.27 million in 2015.

Footballguys view: The fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning the Redskins could release him before the 2016 season without salary cap ramifications.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin option picked up    Mon Apr 27, 08:30 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will have his fifth-year option exercised in 2016. The team views it similar to a franchise tag situation.

Footballguys view: Washington invested a lot in Griffin when they moved up in 2012 NFL draft to select him with the second-overall pick. This move keeps Griffin at his rookie salary of $16.1 million in 2016. This is a cheaper alternative than using the franchise tag. Griffin has to show that he can stay healthy and be a reliable pocket passer in 2015. Picking up his fifth-year option would give him two more seasons with the team where they could evaluate his progress.

  Redskins | Stefon Diggs visits    Thu Apr 23, 02:41 AM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs was one of the prospects taking part in the Washington Redskins' local pro day.

Footballguys view: Diggs learned a lot under Terrapins wide receiver coach (and former NFL standout) Keenan McCardell. While he lacks the size or strength to work outside and beat press coverage, Diggs can be dangerous as a slot receiver on underneath routes. He'll be a third- or fourth-round pick.

  Redskins | Tray Walker visits    Thu Apr 23, 02:34 AM

Texas Southern CB Tray Walker visited the Washington Redskins on Wednesday, April 22.

Footballguys view: Walker has great size at 6'2" 180 pounds. He can press wide receivers on the line of scrimmage, but he does struggle to turn his hips in coverage on downfield routes. He's a late-round pick with the ability to move to free safety.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin has support of teammate    Tue Apr 21, 07:08 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is doing what he needs to do in order to improve, according to WR DeSean Jackson.

Footballguys view: We see 2015 as a make-or-break season for Griffin. He needs to stay heatlhy and start playing better or Washington could move on without him next season. Jackson added that the offense needs to build their camaraderie and increase its chemistry for them to improve on a four-win 2014 season.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin OK without option?    Mon Apr 20, 06:00 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he wouldn't be 'bummed' if the Redskins did not pick up his 2016 option. 'I just want to win. I want to win games and have fun doing it. The rest will take care of itself,' Griffin said.

Footballguys view: Does anyone think Griffin will be a long-term solution for Washington? We certainly don't, and we're expecting Griffin to move on for a fresh start when he can. Griffin had a fine rookie season, but injuries and inconsistencies have derailed his pro career. We'll see if he can get things back on track this year.

  Redskins | Crusoe Gongbay coming to pro day    Sun Apr 19, 02:24 AM

New Mexico RB Crusoe Gongbay will attend the pro day for the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Gongbay is a north-south runner who puts forth outstanding effort after contact. He's got enough speed to get to the corner, but Gongbay is also a willing inside runner. A foot injury cut short his final season with the Lobos, and in this talent-rich RB class he's likely to be an undrafted free agent.

  Redskins | Not leader for Stefen Wisniewski    Sat Apr 18, 10:10 AM

Free-agent C Stefen Wisniewski (Raiders) has received interest from the Washington Redskins, but the Redskins likely are not the leading candidate to sign him, according to a source. The Redskins believe Wisniewski could play at center or guard.

Footballguys view: Washington is looking to upgrade their offensive line, and Wisniewski could do that when healthy. Offseason shoulder surgery has kept the market somewhat cool for his services.

  Redskins | Ereck Flowers to visit    Sat Apr 18, 02:37 AM

Miami (Fla.) OT Ereck Flowers will visit the Washington Redskins in the next week.

Footballguys view: Flowers is one of the better right tackle prospects in this draft. He's agile and can work well in a zone-blocking system. He plays aggressively and has good functional strength as a run-blocker. We'll see him go off the board in the first round of the draft.

  Redskins | Leonard Williams to visit    Thu Apr 16, 02:49 PM

Southern California DE Leonard Williams is scheduled to meet with the Washington Redskins Wednesday, April 22.

Footballguys view: Washington could use another edge-rusher, especially after Brian Orakpo departed. Williams has a great combination of size, easy athleticism and raw power and could step right in and improve the pass rush.

  Redskins | Will meet with Vic Beasley     Wed Apr 15, 02:50 PM

Clemson LB Vic Beasley is scheduled to meet with the Washington Redskins next week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Beasley is one of the most explosive pass-rushers in this draft class. He's got the quickest first step in college football, and he can bend around the edge to get after the quarterback. In order to play up to his potential as a pro, Beasley needs to develop more pass-rushing moves.

  Redskins | Dante Fowler visiting    Wed Apr 15, 02:49 PM

Florida DE/LB Dante Fowler met with the Washington Redskins Wednesday, April 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We love Fowler's upside as a pro. He's one of the most dangerous pass-rushers in the 2015 NFL draft. Fowler can get off the line of scrimmage quickly, and he has good length and burst to get to the quarterback in a hurry. Washington has the fifth-overall pick, and that's the range where Fowler should go.

  Redskins | Stefen Wisniewski visits Washington    Tue Apr 14, 09:18 AM

Free-agent C Stefen Wisniewski (Raiders) visited the Washington Redskins Friday, April 10.

Footballguys view: Wisniewski is a good young center...when healthy. He had offseason shoulder surgery, and that's why he remains unsigned so far in free agency. Somebody is going to get a steal when Wisniewski is healthy.

  Redskins | Marcus Mariota's WSH trip canceled    Thu Apr 9, 10:43 AM

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota was slated to meet with the Washington Redskins, but the two sides couldn't work out a time. The trip has been canceled.

Footballguys view: Don't read too much into this as we all know most of these trips influence draft picks little if any amount. If they want Mariota and he is there at the pick, they'll take him regardless of any visit. Washington is not enamored with Robert Griffin III right now (well, the coaching staff isn't, Dan Snyder might still be) so looking at other options makes sense. We don't think it likely, but it's more than a little possible. Again, whether he makes it in for a visit or not isn't all that notable.

  Redskins | Stevan Ridley to visit Washington    Tue Apr 7, 09:00 AM

Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (Patriots) will visit the Washington Redskins Tuesday, April 7.

  Redskins | Dashon Goldson acquired by Washington    Fri Apr 3, 09:58 AM

The Washington Redskins acquired FS Dashon Goldson and a seventh-round pick from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a sixth-round pick Friday, April 3.

Footballguys view: We're surprised that Washington would take on Goldson's $8 million cap hit. That's what happens when you're desperate for help at the safety position. We're also shocked that Tampa was able to get anything for Goldson as he's been a bust during his time with the Buccaneers.

  Redskins | Washington looking at Pierre Thomas    Thu Apr 2, 01:09 PM

Free-agent RB Pierre Thomas (Saints) has drawn some interest from the Washington Redskins as they look to give competition to RBs Chris Thompson and Silas Redd for the third-down role, according to a source. However, Washington will likely see what's available in the draft before proceeding with Thomas. Among the options the Redskins could look at in the draft are Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah, Northern Iowa RB David Johnson, Miami (Fla.) RB Duke Johnson, South Carolina RB Mike Davis and Alabama RB T.J. Yeldon.

Footballguys view: Thomas is likely to have to wait until someone gets hurt before getting on a team, though franchises like Washington may pull the trigger earlier if they don't like what they see in the draft or OTAs. Thomas hasn't been a very good fantasy player over the last year or so and a third-down role for Washington shouldn't change that. If he gets it, he wouldn't be high on our list of players we want on our fantasy roster.

  Redskins | Washington not giving up on RG3    Mon Mar 30, 04:57 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III isn't being given up on by the team's executives, according to executive Doug Williams. 'This is a young guy that's got some talent,' Williams said. 'There are adjustments that he has to make if I think given time, and I think that's one of the reasons why nobody has given up on him. With the talent that he does have, you're hoping that the last couple of years with the injuries and everything is out of the way, that he will develop into the guy that we all hope for him to be. I think it's fair to give him that opportunity.'

Footballguys view: Washington gave up too much to give up on Griffin...yet. This season is shaping up to be a make-or-break year for the young quarterback. He needs to stay healthy and prove that he can be the franchise quarterback the team envisioned when they paid a hefty price to move up and draft him second overall in the 2012 NFL draft.

  Redskins | Michael Hill signs    Mon Mar 30, 04:56 PM

Free-agent RB Michael Hill (Colts) signed an undisclosed deal with the Washington Redskins Monday, March 30.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will be the first-team quarterback during offseason workouts, according to head Jay Gruden, but Gruden also said he expects QB Kirk Cousins and QB Colt McCoy to be on the roster when the regular season begins.

Footballguys view: This is shaping up to be a make-or-break season for Griffin. He'll be healthy, and he needs to improve his play if he wants to continue as the quarterback for Washington. We'll see if the team can craft an offense that best suits his talents.

  Redskins | Pierre Garcon to see more targets?    Sat Mar 28, 10:45 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon's production slipped last year largely because of instability at the quarterback position, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden said that he plans to have Garcon's numbers go 'back up' in 2015.

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota may meet with the Washington Redskins before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Even though Washington has Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins, Mariota could be an option for them. We think they'd pass, but this is certainly shaping up to be a make-or-break year for Griffin.

  Redskins | Santana Moss could return    Fri Mar 27, 03:55 PM

Free-agent WR Santana Moss (Redskins) could re-sign with the Washington Redskins this offseason, but the two sides have not had a lot of talks to this point. The team likely will see what happens during the draft before making a decision on Moss.

Footballguys view: Nothing to see here for fantasy owners...even in the deepest of dynasty leagues. It's a fantastic WR class, so Washington could address the position with a better (and younger) option in the draft.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson could play on third down    Wed Mar 25, 11:01 AM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is the front runner for the third-down back role, according to head coach Jay Gruden. The team could also draft a back for the role.

Footballguys view: Thompson would be a fine change-of-pace back if he could actually stay healthy. As a smaller back he struggles with staying durable, and that impacts the effect he can have on the field. It's a great running back class this year, so we'd like to see Washington just draft another back.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's option must be picked up by May 3. General manager Scot McCloughan said the team has had discussions about Griffin's option and that they are still talking it through.

Footballguys view: This is a make-or-break year for Griffin in Washington. If he can stay healthy and get his career back on track, then Washington would be happy to keep him around. They need to make that commitment now before the option to pick up his fifth-year option is over.
