  Redskins | Kyle Allen to compete for starting job?    Tue Mar 31, 05:53 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kyle Allen said Tuesday, March 31, he expects to compete for a starting job for the 2020 season. 'I think that's an awesome opportunity,' he said.

Footballguys view: The Panthers moved on from Allen because they signed Teddy Bridgewater in free agency. Allen is back with Ron Rivera but now in Washington. We'll see if his experience as a starter helps him push 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins for the starting job.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins to open camp as starter    Mon Mar 30, 02:16 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will open training camp as the No. 1 quarterback but will have to compete for the job during the preseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Kyle Allen was added for competition and he will push Haskins for the starting job. Haskins flashed as a rookie in 2019 but he was not picked by the current staff so he could have a short hook as the starter -- if he even wins the starting job in camp.

  Redskins | Washington adding Cody Latimer    Wed Mar 25, 08:56 PM

Free-agent WR Cody Latimer (Giants) agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 25, according to sources. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Latimer has bounced around the league to a few teams now and has yet to play up to the potential he showed as a second-round pick (Broncos) out of Indiana in the 2014 NFL draft. He's got size and can make plays 'above the rim' but Latimer is going to be battling for a backup spot in Washington. The depth chart is wide open behind Terry McLaurin, so Latimer might work his way further up than some think.

Free-agent RB Peyton Barber (Buccaneers) signed a two-year deal worth $3 million with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 24. Barber receives $600,000 in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Barber is a jack-of-all trades running back who will work behind Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice in Washington. He does not have much juice when he does touch the rock and is not much of a fantasy option.

  Redskins | Logan Thomas agrees with Washington    Thu Mar 19, 09:36 AM

Free-agent TE Logan Thomas (Lions) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Washington Redskins Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Washington will have a new-look tight end group with Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed gone. Thomas is a converted quarterback who has flashed just a little bit as a tight end in his various stops around the NFL. He'll work behind Jeremy Sprinkle and try to find a spot on the depth chart.

  Redskins | Washington pushing for Amari Cooper?    Thu Mar 5, 09:40 PM

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Amari Cooper is being recruited by fellow University of Alabama alumni who currently play for the Washington Redskins, according to John Keim of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Washington could use some help at the wide receiver position and Cooper may be hitting the open market. The Cowboys have to get a deal done with him and QB Dak Prescott before the start of free agency. They may use the franchise tag on one of those players if they can get a deal done with one of them.

  Redskins | Bryce Love eyeing OTAs    Thu Mar 5, 09:28 PM

Washington Redskins RB Bryce Love (knee) said Thursday, March 5, that his goal is to be participating in OTAs.

Footballguys view: We have some interest in Love when it comes to super deep dynasty formats. We'll see if he can get healthy and regain the form he had during his junior season at Stanford when he was one of the most dangerous backs in college football. Love is trying to earn a spot on the depth chart behind Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson.

  Redskins | Washington interested in Philip Rivers?    Sat Feb 29, 10:55 AM

The Washington Redskins could make a bid for free-agent QB Philip Rivers (Chargers), according to multiple league sources at the scouting combine, who add that it would take a massive contract to land him.

Footballguys view: Rivers is done with the Chargers and more than a few teams may be interested in the first-time free agent quarterback. We think he ends up with the Colts, but Washington does not seem completely locked into Dwayne Haskins as their starter.

  Redskins | Austin Hooper a likely target for Redskins    Fri Feb 28, 06:19 PM

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent TE Austin Hooper likely will be a target for the Washington Redskins during free agency, according to a source.

  Redskins | Drafting QB in play for Washington    Fri Feb 28, 01:46 PM

Alabama QB and 2020 NFL Draft prospect Tua Tagovailoa (hip) could be a possibility for the Washington Redskins with the No. 2-overall pick if the medical reports on his injured hip are good, according to the NFL Network's Michael Silver.

Footballguys view: Ron Rivera also said the team was open to all possibilities. This could be to build a market for a trade up, but that would also mean forgoing Ohio State EDGE Chase Young as the #2 pick. There's some uncertainty about Washington's plans which wouldn't be present if they had already made their mind up to take Young.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent OG Brandon Scherff is talking to the Redskins about a new contract and is in the team's plans for next season, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Scherff is a candidate for the franchise tag if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement.

Footballguys view: Keeping Scherff and signing Trent Williams to a long-term deal to secure his return to the team would give Washington a brighter outlook on offense. They have a lot of important decisions to make in Ron Rivera's first offseason as the head coach.

  Redskins | Bryce Love should be ready to play    Wed Feb 26, 04:52 PM

Washington Redskins RB Bryce Love (knee) should be ready for the start of the 2020 season, according to vice president of player personnel Kyle Smith.

Footballguys view: Do not forget about Love in deep dynasty formats. Injuries have robbed him of his chance to showcase his skill in the NFL so far as he missed his rookie season last year. Love was incredible in his junior year at Stanford when he followed up Christian McCaffrey as their starter. He's never been able to duplicate that success due to injury. If healthy, he could be a dangerous change-of-pace weapon for Washington.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) should be ready for the start of the 2020 season, according to vice president of player personnel Kyle Smith.

Footballguys view: Guice has the ability to be a damn good featured back in the NFL...if he's ever healthy for a long stretch of time. The last two seasons have been eliminated or cut short due to knee problems. We'll see if Guice can finally stay healthy and play up to the potential he's always had.

  Redskins | Washington to meet with top QB prospects    Wed Feb 26, 02:12 PM

Louisiana State QB Joe Burrow and Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa will meet with the Washington Redskins at the NFL Scouting Combine, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Washington is doing a bit of posturing here. Burrow is likely to go off the board No.1 overall to the Bengals, and Tagovailoa is the main target of the Dolphins...and Washington may try to tempt Miami to move up with them to secure their passer. The Lions pulled a similar stunt last week.
