  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins not locked in as QB1    Thu Jan 9, 01:40 AM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will need to earn the starting job leading up the 2020 season, according to comments made by head coach Ron Rivera, who said that, 'We won't know until we get ready to open up in September,' while also mentioning that the team has 'good veteran quarterbacks that [will] get some opportunities to play.'

Footballguys view: A most....interesting...news item here. While we don't need Rivera to do cartwheels when talking about Haskins, most did expect him to declare with certainty that Haskins was their guy...at least for 2020. At the end of the day this is likely just coach-speak and Rivera doesn't want to overstate anything. Haskins needs better weapons around him and he can build on what he flashed in his rookie season.

Carolina Panthers interim offensive coordinator Scott Turner was hired by the Washington Redskins as offensive coordinator Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Turner and Ron Rivera worked together with the Panthers when Turner was the QB coach. We'll see what kind of offense he can build around young quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

  Redskins | Scott Turner to interview with WAS    Fri Jan 3, 09:48 AM

Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Scott Turner will interview with the Washington Redskins for their offensive coordinator position Friday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: Turner may not be the favorite, but he could wind up as the quarterbacks coach if he doesn't get the coordinator spot. He's not going to keep his job with the Panthers as a new head coach will bring in his own staff. Turner of course has experience with former Panthers head coach (and Washington's new top man) Ron Rivera.

  Redskins | Jack Del Rio hired by WAS    Wed Jan 1, 10:34 AM

Former Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio was hired by the Washington Redskins as defensive coordinator.

Footballguys view: Del Rio was out of the league over the last two seasons after struggling as the Raiders head coach for three seasons previous to that. He'll have quite a bit of talent (including likely No.2 overall pick DE Chase Young) to work with in Washington.

  Redskins | Ron Rivera hired by Washington    Tue Dec 31, 09:00 AM

Former Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera was hired by the Washington Redskins as head coach Tuesday, Dec. 31. He received a five-year deal.

Footballguys view: Things fell apart for Rivera with the Panthers over the last two seasons but he's a good head coach who will build a strong culture (as much as Dan Snyder will let him) in Washington. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Washington is expected to target ex-Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio for their defensive-coordinating vacancy.

  Redskins | Bruce Allen fired    Mon Dec 30, 09:12 AM

Washington Redskins president Bruce Allen was relieved of his duties Monday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: Allen has run things in Washington for a decade now with only two playoff appearances and no playoff wins during that time. When Jay Gruden was fired as head coach, the future became more bleak for Allen. The rumor mill has Ron Rivera as a top candidate to be the new head coach, and he should be able to hire a GM of his choice.

  Redskins | Terry McLaurin out Thursday    Thu Dec 26, 01:32 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.

Footballguys view: Washington may be without the rookie receiver in Week 17. He still needs to be cleared from the concussion protocol if he wants to play on Sunday. McLaurin is less than 100 yards from 1,000 yards receiving in 2019. Perhaps he could get out there and go for the mark against the Cowboys.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson eyeing 6 more seasons    Thu Dec 26, 12:46 PM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson said Thursday, Dec. 26, he wants to keep playing. 'I can see myself playing to 40,' the 34-year-old running back said. 'People look at that and say 'oh my god, that's crazy,' but they've been doing that for the past two years and -- surprise, surprise -- I'm still able to do it at a high level.'

Footballguys view: We'd be surprised if Peterson can play until he's 40, but many are surprised he's still playing today. Peterson is a machine and if he can find a team to keep giving him a shot then perhaps him playing until he's 40-years old is not as outlandish as it seems.
