  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 | Kai Forbath staying with team    Wed Apr 15, 10:49 PM

  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.

Footballguys view: Ridley has been getting a bit of interest as of late. He's still not at full strength (knee), but he should be ready to go by May. Teams are likely exploring their options, and there is no imminent signing of Ridley at this time.

  Redskins | Joseph Barksdale not a target    Sun Apr 5, 12:57 PM

Free-agent OT Joseph Barksdale (Rams) has not received a lot of interest from the Washington Redskins this offseason.

Footballguys view: Barksdale is still on the open market, and only a couple of teams (Rams, Titans) have shown a glimmer of interest.

  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.

Footballguys view: This is just a depth move here. Hill is known as a sleeper prospect in super deep dynasty leagues, but we're not even sure he can make Washington's final roster. Watch to see if the former Missouri Western star can make an impact in training camp and the preseason.

  Redskins | Competition not going away for RGIII    Sun Mar 29, 07:28 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Washington would be wise to get Garcon more involved. They need better quarterback play this year if they want to get the most out of their passing game.

  Redskins | Marcus Mariota may meet with WAS    Sat Mar 28, 10:37 AM

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.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin's option to be picked up?    Tue Mar 24, 04:56 PM

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.

  Redskins | Washington willing to draft QB early    Tue Mar 24, 04:30 PM

Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said that the team will go with the best player available in the 2015 NFL Draft with the No. 5 overall pick, which means that they could take a quarterback in that spot.

Footballguys view: McCloughan could be compelled to take Oregon QB Marcus Mariota if he's available at No. 5, even after the team said QB Robert Griffin III was the team's starter a month ago. McCloughan doesn't think anyone will be handed a job, and they'll have to compete to win a spot.

  Redskins | 'Skins bluffing on Marcus Mariota?    Tue Mar 17, 10:39 PM

The Washington Redskins are reportedly interested in Oregon QB Marcus Mariota with the No. 5 overall pick in the NFL Draft. However, Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports believes the Redskins are trying to stimulate a trade ahead of the No. 5 pick, pushing another player down the board.

Footballguys view: With Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy already on the roster any interest in a rookie quarterbacks seems a bit off. Washington is probably trying to get a team to bite on a trade in order to move up in the draft.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy re-signs    Tue Mar 17, 12:19 PM

Free-agent QB Colt McCoy re-signed with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 17, according to a league source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: McCoy looked like the best quarterback on the Washington roster last year. He'll once again serve as a third-string player behind Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. If those two get hurt or struggle to perform, then McCoy could come in and look good again.

  Redskins | Still interested in Taylor Mays    Tue Mar 17, 02:28 AM

Free-agent SS Taylor Mays (Bengals) has interest in the Washington Redskins, and the Redskins are trying to work out a visit in the coming days.

Footballguys view: Mays is an in-the-box safety who arrives at the ball-carrier with natural violence. Don't ask him to cover, but if used the right way he can be an effective player.

  Redskins | Jeron Johnson agrees to terms    Mon Mar 16, 01:04 PM

Free-agent SS Jeron Johnson (Seahawks) has agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins on a two-year deal worth $4 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Johnson is an in-the-box safety who can work well as a run-defender. He was a backup in Seattle behind Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, but Washington might count on him as a starter.

  Redskins | Redskins eyeing Marcus Mariota?    Sun Mar 15, 10:20 PM

Former Oregon QB Marcus Mariota won't make it past the Washington Redskins in the 2015 NFL Draft, according to ESPN NFL Insider John Clayton. 'Dan Snyder may not think there's quarterback issues; Jay Gruden and everybody else in the front office thinks there's quarterback issues,' Clayton said. 'And if Marcus Mariota falls to five - now it's not a position where they're desperate enough to trade up to get him - but if he falls to 5, I'm telling you this right now, they'll take him.'

Footballguys view: It would be surprising after how much they gave up to get Robert Griffin III....oh yeah, and they've still got Kirk Cousins. Mariota is comparable to Alex Smith (Chiefs). He's a smart player who worked out of the shotgun and threw to mostly wide-open receivers in college. Mariota needs to prove that he can make stick throws and work from under center if he's going to be a decent pro quarterback.

  Redskins | DeAngelo Hall should be ready for camp    Sun Mar 15, 09:43 AM

Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (Achilles') is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

  Redskins | Michael Crabtree an option for WAS    Sat Mar 14, 11:14 AM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) has received interest from the Washington Redskins, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Crabtree is a big, physical receiver who isn't afraid to run routes over the middle. Washington could use that type of target for Robert Griffin III. We'll see if the two sides can come together on something in the near future.

  Redskins | Chris Culliver agrees with Washington    Fri Mar 13, 09:15 AM

Free-agent CB Chris Culliver (49ers) agreed to a four-year deal with the Washington Redskins Friday, March 13.

Footballguys view: Culliver steps into a starting role with Washington as they continue to add pieces to their new-look defense in 2015. General Manager Scot McCloughan has already added defensive linemen Stephen Paea, Ricky Jean Francois and Terrance Knighton.

  Redskins | Terrance Knighton agrees to deal    Thu Mar 12, 07:16 PM

Updating previous reports, free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos) agreed to a one-year deal worth $4 million Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: We'll see Knighton man the middle for Washington. He's a mountain of a man who is tough to move. Knighton is a good run-defender, but he's also able to get some interior push on opposing quarterbacks. His market price was much lower than most (likely including him) expected.

  Redskins | Terrance Knighton has good visit    Thu Mar 12, 03:56 PM

Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos) had a good visit with the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 11, but he continues to mull his options. The Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers all have some interest in him, as well.

Footballguys view: Good enough to sign? We'll see soon. He could help the Washington defensive line, but price will be important.

Free-agent DT Stephen Paea signed a four-year deal with the Washington Redskins Monday, March 9. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OT Bryan Bulaga is receiving interest from the Washington Redskins, according to sources.

  Redskins | Devin McCourty not expected to be option     Sun Mar 8, 09:47 AM

New England Patriots impending free-agent FS Devin McCourty is not expected to be pursued by the Washington Redskins this offseason, according to a source.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent DE Jarvis Jenkins is still in talks with the Redskins even though he is allowed to talk with other teams, according to a source.

Footballguys view: They could keep Jenkins around, but they should not expect that much from what is shaping up to be a career disappointment. Jenkins started 14 games last year but failed to register a single sack. He also has no forced fumbles, fumble recoveries or passes defended in 44 career games.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent LB Brian Orakpo is interested in re-signing with the team, and the Redskins are interested in him returning, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Orakpo is a talented pass-rusher, but staying healthy is a big concern after three pectoral injuries have kept him from playing up to his potential. He missed nine games last year, registering only a half a sack. However, in 2013 Orakpo had a 10-sack season. The 28-year-old linebacker will hit the open market for the first time in his six-year career.
