  Redskins | Kirk Cousins the best available QB?    Sat Feb 10, 11:19 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is the 'safest bet at the position, in free agency or the draft,' according to an NFL executive.

Footballguys view: The safest bet is also likely to be the most expensive bet at the quarterback position. Washington may tag Cousins in order to get a team to trade for him. After acquiring his rights, his new team would have to pay him a deal near or greater than the $137.5 million deal Jimmy Garoppolo got from the 49ers. The Broncos and Vikings are considered the favored landing spots for Cousins.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson thinks he'll return to form    Fri Feb 9, 01:43 AM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) is confident he'll be able to return to his former self once he's fully healed from his broken leg. 'So it's just more of me being patient with it, with the rehab, and just kind of being smart,' he said in a radio interview. 'I'm known to want to progress as fast as I can, so I think if I just stay patient with the process and everything I should be back to what I was before.'

Footballguys view: Thompson was making big plays for Washington before going down with an injury. The backfield will continue to feature Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine as ball-carriers, while Thompson should stay in place as the primary receiving threat from the running back position. His role and skill set give him RB2 value each week in PPR leagues.

  Redskins | WAS could place franchise tag on Kirk Cousins    Sun Feb 4, 09:41 AM

The Washington Redskins are considering placing the franchise tag on QB Kirk Cousins in order to trade him and recover some of the compensation they sent to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for QB Alex Smith, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: This could be tough as it will keep Washington from having cap flexibility while Cousins is on the books, and other teams might not play ball knowing that Washington can't keep Cousins. This is a risky move that could backfire by keeping Washington from being players in free agency and getting little for that trouble.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins surprised by Alex Smith trade    Fri Feb 2, 02:38 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he was surprised when he heard about the Redskins' agreement to acquire Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Footballguys view: The communication between Cousins and the team seemed to break down as soon as the season was over and it didn't take long for him to remove Washington from Twitter profile. Only Cleveland is clearly lower on the organizational dysfunction scale.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins excited about free agency    Fri Feb 2, 02:20 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he is looking forward to hitting the free-agent market because he has not been able to choose the team he plays for since college. He said he will be looking to sign with a team that can win a championship.

Footballguys view: Denver, Minnesota, and Jacksonville are all candidates if Cousins is focusing on winning a title. Jacksonville is leaning towards Blake Bortles and Minnesota has three quarterbacks that were on the roster last year to consider too. In light of this, the Broncos are looking good as his future team, and the Jets are on the fringe.

  Redskins | Alex Smith subpar versus NFC East    Wed Jan 31, 03:40 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has played relatively poorly against the NFC East in his career. In 18 career games versus the division Smith has averaged a scanty 217.4 yards and 1.2 touchdowns. Smith will be playing six games in the NFC East.

  Redskins | Kendall Fuller headed to Kansas City    Tue Jan 30, 11:01 PM

The Washington Redskins have agreed in principle to trade CB Kendall Fuller along with a 2018 third-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for QB Alex Smith. Per NFL rules, the trade cannot be officially completed until the first day of the new league year (3 p.m. on March 14).

Footballguys view: Fuller was one of the better slot corners in the league and he still has two years left on a cheap rookie deal. He is the prize more than the third round pick, especially because the Chiefs struggled to cover slot receivers and needed to upgrade this position sorely.

  Redskins | Washington reportedly extends Alex Smith    Tue Jan 30, 10:23 PM

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith, who was reportedly traded from the Kansas City Chiefs late in the night Tuesday, Jan. 30, has agreed to a four-year, $94 million contract extension that will keep him with the Redskins though the end of the 2022 season. The deal will reportedly include approximately $70 million in guaranteed money. Per NFL rules, the trade cannot be officially completed until the first day of the new league year (3 p.m. on March 14).

Footballguys view: That's a huge amount of money for a 33-year-old quarterback, but that's the market now, and Washington probably thought Kirk Cousins would cost significantly more. Jimmy Garoppolo's deal should be equal to or exceed this contract.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants winning team     Tue Jan 30, 03:03 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins won't be solely focused on how much money he can make this offseason. He wants to be on a team that will contend for the Super Bowl. 'Is money a part of it? Sure. Is it the only thing? No,' Cousins said. 'It is about winning, and that's what I want more than anything, so I'm going to be willing to make sacrifices or do what has to be done to make sure I'm in the best possible position to win, and that's what the focus is going to be.'

Footballguys view: Read: Cousins doesn't want to go to Cleveland or the Jets no matter how much they want him. Denver continues to be one of the strongest candidates to land Cousins this offseason.

  Redskins | Washington still wants Zach Brown back    Sat Jan 27, 05:33 PM

The Washington Redskins still want to re-sign impending free-agent LB Zach Brown this offseason even though they re-signed LB Mason Foster earlier this week, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Brown was very cheap (2.55 million) last year on a one year deal and had another strong season, so it is unlikely that he will be that inexpensive this year. Brown wants to get market value for his services and Washington seems unwilling to pay that, so Keim expects Brown to hit free agency, but there's still time for the situation to change.

  Redskins | Former GM critical of Kirk Cousins     Sat Jan 20, 11:44 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins isn't a 'special' player, according to former general manager Scot McCloughan. 'You just need to have some talent around him because you don't want him to be throwing the ball 35 to 40 times to win the game,' McCloughan said.

Footballguys view: Cousins isn't special in the same way Drew Brees or Tom Brady is, but he is still one of the 12-15 best quarterbacks in the league by any measure, which means he'll be one of the highest paid players in the game and the centerpiece of a franchise. Whether he's a fantasy QB1 in 2018 will depend on his supporting cast, which is the gist of McCloughan's point.

  Redskins | Zach Brown not close to deal    Sat Jan 20, 10:41 PM

Washington Redskins LB Zach Brown will be a free agent this offseason, and he will likely have to to lower his asking price in order to return to Washington in 2018.

Footballguys view: Washington went through a lot of players at inside linebacker this year due to injury, making it a position they could look to address in the draft.

  Redskins | Kendall Fuller could move outside    Sat Jan 20, 10:34 PM

Washington Redskins CB Kendall Fuller could move to the outside in 2018 with CB Joshua Holsey replacing him as the slot corner.

Footballguys view: Fuller had a great year in 2017 and he projects as a long-term outside starter, just as it appears that Josh Norman is past the shutdown corner part of his career.

  Redskins | Orlando Franklin signs futures deal    Fri Jan 19, 05:07 PM

The Washington Redskins signed OG Orlando Franklin to a Reserve/Future deal Friday, Jan. 19. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick of the Broncos in 2011, Franklin was on three different teams during the 2017 calendar year (Chargers, Saints, Washington). He's a big-bodied run-blocker who is trying to get his career back on track.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson feeling good    Tue Jan 16, 01:32 AM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) said he's 'feeling good' while rehabbing from a fractured fibula that he sustained back in November in a game against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Thompson was a great weapon for Washington when he was healthy, and the offense wasn't the same without him after he was hurt. Lord only knows who the quarterback will be next season, but Thompson will give the team a dangerous weapon out of the backfield when fully healthy. He's expected to be ready for training camp.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden wants long-term answer at QB    Mon Jan 8, 01:35 PM

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he prefers that impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins signs a long-term deal or the team moves onto another quarterback. 'I think something has to be done,' Gruden said. 'I personally don't want to go through another one-year deal, and just [keep going] one year, one year. I think you want to have a quarterback in here that's going to be here. And hopefully that is Kirk, and if not, we have to move on and do what we have to do as an organization.'

Footballguys view: Cousins has been franchise-tagged by Washington each of the last two years. He hasn't gotten a long-term deal that he wants, and the team is running out of time to get it done. They could tag him again in 2018, but the cost would be almost $35 million and he still wouldn't have a long-term contract. If Cousins gets to the open market, several teams should have interest in the veteran quarterback. Washington could transition tag Cousins so they at least would get something in return if they lose him to another team.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins will sign offer if tagged    Fri Jan 5, 05:43 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he would sign the one-year tender offer if he receives the franchise tag again this offseason.

Footballguys view: Washington could actually franchise Cousins for a third time in a row, but that move would get Cousins a one-year guaranteed salary of $34.5 million. We could see Cousins tagged with the idea that some team would trade for him and give him the long-term deal he covets. Washington may consider placing the transition tag on Cousins, which would also get them something in return if he is signed away by another team. It's hard to believe Washington will let Cousins walk without getting anything for him in return.

  Redskins | Stephen Morris signs Reserve/Future deal    Tue Jan 2, 04:17 PM

Washington Redskins QB Stephen Morris signed a Reserve/Future contract Tuesday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: Morris is athletic and has good mechanics for throwing the ball, but he doesn't have the accuracy necessary to be an effective starter. He's merely a developmental player or camp arm for Washington.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson hopeful for training camp    Tue Jan 2, 12:41 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) expects it will take him four to six months to fully recover from the early December surgery he had on his broken leg. He anticipates being ready for training camp at the very least, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Footballguys view: Getting Thompson back will boost the production from the backfield. Several changes could happen in Washington, mainly the question mark about the future of QB Kirk Cousins. If Thompson can regain his form, he's got RB2/flex value in PPR leagues on a weekly basis.

  Redskins | Washington retains plethora of players    Mon Jan 1, 04:09 PM

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick of the Houston Texans in 2015, we've always had an appreciation for Kenny Hilliard in super deep dynasty leagues. He worked in a talented backfield in college at LSU, and Hilliard has natural instincts for running the ball. He's a no-nonsense runner that will take what's there and fight for more. After bouncing around on and off the practice squads in Houston and Washington, Hilliard is running out of chances to stick.

  Redskins | Week 17 game recap for Redskins    Sun Dec 31, 05:08 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 20-of-37 pass attempts for 158 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 17 game against the New York Giants. RB Kapri Bibbs led the team with 47 rushing yards on 12 attempts, while Cousins had a 12-yard touchdown run on his only rush. RB Samaje Perine ran twice for just three yards. Bibbs also led the team in receiving with 53 yards on a game-high eight catches, and WR Josh Doctson finished with four grabs and 37 yards. WR Jamison Crowder posted three catches for 25 yards, and WR Ryan Grant ended up with two catches with 23 yards. TE Vernon Davis rounded things out with two snares for 20 yards.

Footballguys view: Cousins had a brief resurgence last week, but that came crashing down in what could be his last game in Washington.
