  Redskins | Josh Doctson goes 22nd overall    Thu Apr 28, 10:39 PM

The Washington Redskins selected Texas Christian WR Josh Doctson with the 22nd overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Washington has a nice array of receivers and Doctson will pair nicely with Pierre Garcon in particular. He's got good size and speed but will need to prove he can beat the press. Kirk Cousins has some nice weapons to work with this season.

  Redskins | Washington wants Karl Joseph    Wed Apr 27, 05:03 PM

West Virginia S Karl Joseph could be drafted by the Washington Redskins, who may want to trade down for him.

Footballguys view: Joseph has been linked to some teams in the late first round, so even though he tore his ACL in October, he could still be a first round pick. He is a true do everything safety who can play centerfield and patrol the box with equal aplomb.

  Redskins | Positive negotiations with Kirk Cousins    Tue Apr 26, 12:56 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and the Redskins continue to talk about a long-term deal, according to general manager Scot McCloughan.

Footballguys view: Cousins showed that he could be a very good starter last year, and the team would love to lock him down with a long-term deal. The negotiations are considered positive, and McCloughan thinks a deal could be imminent. Cousins signed his franchise tag for close to $20 million on March 3. The deadline for a long-term deal is July 15.

  Redskins | Chris Culliver in danger?     Sun Apr 24, 07:23 AM

Washington Redskins CB Chris Culliver (knee) may find his roster spot in jeopardy with the signing of CB Josh Norman to a five-year deal.

Footballguys view: Norman is going to team up with Bashaud Breeland to give Washington a nice 1-2 combination at corner. Culliver will compete with guys like Will Blackmon and Quinton Dunbar to be the nickel corner.

  Redskins | Josh Norman deal really for two years    Sat Apr 23, 03:20 PM

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman's deal is actually two years in length and worth $36.5 million, fully guaranteed. He can earn $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses in 2017, and the rest of the deal is option years. The remainder of his injury guarantee, which is $13.5 million, will become fully guaranteed in March 2018.

  Redskins | Josh Norman signing with Washington    Fri Apr 22, 07:41 PM

Free-agent CB Josh Norman (Panthers) is signing a five-year deal worth $75 million with the Washington Redskins Friday, April 22, according to a source. The deal includes $50 million in guarantees.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quickly around here in the NFL. Norman now gets to face Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. twice a year, and we can't wait for their first matchup. Washington moved DeAngelo Hall to safety, and now have a true shutdown corner in Norman.

  Redskins | Josh Norman to visit 'Skins    Thu Apr 21, 06:39 PM

Free-agent CB Josh Norman (Panthers) will make his first visit to the Washington Redskins Friday, April 22, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Washington should sell him hard, as they need the help. If they can pay him, he'd be an immediate upgrade to the 20th ranked pass defense in the NFL per Football Outsiders.

  Redskins | 'Skins have offer to Josh Norman    Thu Apr 21, 06:18 PM

Free-agent CB Josh Norman (Panthers) has a legitimate offer on the table from the Washington Redskins. The San Francisco 49ers also have strong interest in the cornerback.

Footballguys view: Rumor is the money is in the range of $14-15 million which is what he was asking for. He would be a huge help to a bad Washington secondary and a nice addition to the Niners as well.

  Redskins | 'Skins meeting with Christian Hackenberg    Tue Apr 19, 01:28 PM

Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg had a visit with the New York Jets Monday, April 18, and he's visiting with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, April 19.

Footballguys view: Hackenberg is a "toolsy" quarterback who looks like a prototypical pocket passer. He's big and has a strong arm, but accuracy and decision making need a lot of work. Hackenberg is likely to be a second-round pick.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants certain deal    Tue Apr 12, 07:48 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins wants a lengthy, long-term contract from the Redskins -- a something in the $19 million per year range, with $40 million in guaranteed money. Washington doesn't view him as that kind of starter yet, though.

Footballguys view: Cousins is still in a "prove it" phase of his career after only one season as a quality starter. Washington would quickly change their mind if Cousins puts up great numbers again this year.

  Redskins | Vernon Davis signs with Redskins    Thu Mar 31, 11:50 AM

Free-agent TE Vernon Davis (Broncos) agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins Thursday, March 31.

Footballguys view: The "I don't want to retire yet" tour of Davis continues, and we expect the results to be the same as we've seen before which is to say "not fantasy relevant."

  Redskins | Terrance Knighton visiting    Tue Mar 29, 04:24 PM

Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Redskins) is visiting the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 29, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Knighton didn't get a contract with the Patriots done, so he's looking to see if Washington wants to bring him back. The big man can naturally stuff the middle, and he'll surprisingly get some interior pressure on the QB from time to time.

  Redskins | Anquan Boldin visiting Redskins    Tue Mar 29, 03:38 PM

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) is visiting the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 29, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This is Boldin's first reported visit in free agency. He's not the same player as he used to be, and adding Boldin would just be a move to bolster the team's depth at WR.

  Redskins | Want Terrance Knighton back    Mon Mar 28, 04:55 PM

The Washington Redskins would like to re-sign DT Terrance Knighton, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Knighton is meeting with the Patriots, and he might decide to move on. He's a good rotational player who can stuff the run.

  Redskins | Matt Jones receives vote of confidence    Sat Mar 26, 05:43 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (hip) appears to be the prohibitive favorite to shoulder the load in 2016, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: With Alfred Morris (Cowboys) moving on in free agency, Washington is going to turn to Jones in 2016. He needs to stay healthy and hang onto the rock if he wants to play up to his potential this season. With his big-play ability and all-purpose skill set, Jones should perform like an RB2 with upside.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin ready for competition     Thu Mar 24, 09:18 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III said it doesn't bother him at all if the Browns use the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft on a quarterback. 'I'm just ready to compete,' Griffin said.

Footballguys view: We're curious to see what the Browns do at No. 2. Griffin would be competition for whomever came in - be it in the first or second round - but how serious is the question. While his upside is still high, we don't know if the toll on his body is already too much for him to regain his former level of play.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson taking it slow    Wed Mar 23, 10:42 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) is recovering from shoulder surgery, and head coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday, March 23, that Thompson might not be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Thompson might play a larger role in 2016 with Alfred Morris gone. If Washington goes to more three-wide sets and stays in an aggressive mindset in the passing game, Thompson will have value in PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Matt Jones should be ready for OTAs    Wed Mar 23, 10:41 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (hip) was bothered by a hip injury down the stretch. However, head coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday, March 23, that Jones should be ready for the start of organized team activities (OTAs) in April.

Footballguys view: Jones had a false breakout game against the Rams early in the season, but didn't get back to that level of play for the rest of the season. The team seems to think that he can because they haven't added a back after losing Alfred Morris in free agency. Jones will be a boom/bust mid-round RB pick.

  Redskins | Taking it slow with Junior Galette    Wed Mar 23, 10:40 PM

Washington Redskins OL Shawn Lauvao (ankle, foot) tore multiple ligaments in his left ankle and had surgery to repair tendons in his right foot.

When he returns he'll have stiff competition for OLs Spencer Long and Arie Kouandjio.

  Redskins | Pierre Thomas could return    Wed Mar 23, 08:48 PM

  Redskins | Niles Paul likely out until camp    Wed Mar 23, 08:45 PM

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (ankle) likely will not be able to participate until training camp. Paul needs to regain strength in his ankle and also needs to add some weight. Paul could see time at fullback if the team decides to keep four tight ends on the final roster.

Footballguys view: Paul's injury came early in the 2015 campaign, so this isn't a great sign as to the potential long term effects of this injury. Jordan Reed ruled the red zone by the end of the season, and Paul doesn't seem to have a chance to pull even with him with a lost offseason. The converted wide receiver had overtaken Reed on the depth chart before his injury.

  Redskins | Vernon Davis still of interest to Redskins    Tue Mar 22, 03:53 PM

Free-agent TE Vernon Davis (Broncos) is still a target of the Washington Redskins, according to general manager Scot McCloughan. Davis met with Washington nearly three weeks ago.

Footballguys view: Washington already has a good collection of TEs including Jordan Reed and Niles Paul. Davis did next to nothing last year with two teams (49ers, Broncos) and his best days are likely far behind him. He could be added because of his blocking ability, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect much from him.

  Redskins | Washington addressing Matt Jones' fumbles    Sat Mar 19, 06:20 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is positioned to start 2016 as the team's every-down back, but he will need to cut down on his five fumbles (on 144 carries) - tied for the second-highest total in the NFL - during his rookie season.

Footballguys view: Jones has to do a better job of hanging onto the rock. He's a powerful runner and explosive in open space as a receiver out of the backfield. However, Jones could see his time as a feature back cut short if he can't stop fumbling.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson had surgery    Fri Mar 18, 12:37 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) is rehabbing from shoulder surgery and is hopeful to be ready for training camp.

Free-agent FS David Bruton (Broncos) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 15.

The Washington Redskins re-signed CB Will Blackmon to a two-year deal Monday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed extension coming?    Sun Mar 13, 09:42 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed could receive a contract extension later in the summer, according to beat writer Rich Tandler.

Footballguys view: Reed is a fantastic player when healthy. Staying durable has been a problem for him as a pro, but Reed was able to play in 14 games, snare 87 passes for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015. If he stays healthy (for the most part) again this year, Reed could best those career-best numbers.
