  Redskins | Vernon Davis will be FA    Sun Jan 15, 04:50 PM

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Davis can get one final payday. He signed a one-year deal with Washington after doing next to nothing (except winning a Super Bowl) with the Broncos in 2015. Davis was great depth behind injury prone starter Jordan Reed, and Davis performed well as a reserve or as a starter this year. If the price is right, Washington would be wise to bring him back.

  Redskins | Pierre Garcon set to be free agent    Sun Jan 15, 04:48 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Garcon wants to prove that he's more than a possession receiver. He comes off a 2016 season where he went over 1,000 yards receiving for just the second time in his career. Early speculation has Garcon as a potential target of the Baltimore Ravens in free agency.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson to be UFA    Sun Jan 15, 04:48 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST

Footballguys view: Jackson is done in Washington, and there's a chance he winds up back with the Eagles. His speed would certainly be a welcome addition to the Philadelphia offense.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins will be free agent    Sun Jan 15, 04:42 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST

Footballguys view: Washington has to find a way to keep Cousins, and that may come with a long-term contract or a franchise tag for the second year in a row. With 4,917 passing yards in 2016 (4th-highest in the league), Cousins led the way through the air for the Washington passing attack. With WRs DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon likely to move on in free agency, Cousins may have to work with a revamped group of receiving weapons in 2017...if Washington keeps him.

  Redskins | Pierre Garcon says he is not possession WR    Sat Jan 14, 02:58 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said he does not want to be called a possession receiver because he can do more than what the Redskins asked him to do in 2016. 'I definitely want people to stop thinking I'm a possession receiver because they gave me a job to do,' Garcon said. 'That doesn't mean I can't go deep and I can't run fast, because I ran fast and went deep this year more than I probably ever did. Every year is different from the playcalling. But I want people to stop thinking that I'm a slow guy, and I'm not slowing down anytime soon.'

Footballguys view: His 13.1 YPC average this year ranks 49th in the league while his teammate DeSean Jackson led the NFL with a 17.95 YPC average. Playing the possession role was what Garcon was asked to do, and he did his job well...in fact his YPC was about a 3-yard rise from his average as a Washington wideout. Don't be surprised if a team like Baltimore shows some interest in Garcon on the open market.

  Redskins | Phil Taylor signs with Redskins    Fri Jan 6, 06:09 PM

Free-agent DT Phil Taylor (Broncos) signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Washington Redskins Friday, Jan. 6. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A former first-round pick (2011), Taylor has not been able to shake the injury bug in recent years. Chronic knee problems have plagued him over the last two years, but he's worth taking a chance on considering the price tag and potential upside.

  Redskins | Junior Galette plans to re-sign    Fri Jan 6, 02:30 PM

  Redskins | Washington fires two defensive assistants    Thu Jan 5, 01:41 PM

Washington Redskins secondary coach Perry Fewell and defensive line coach Robb Akey were fired Thursday, Jan. 5.

Footballguys view: With Joe Barry out, this made sense. As we said in the piece about the former defensive coordinator, the defense fell short of expectations, so a house cleaning was in order.

  Redskins | Joe Barry will not return    Thu Jan 5, 12:45 PM

Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry was fired Thursday, Jan. 5, according to a source.

Footballguys view: You could see this coming considering how the defense fell off this season. Changes had to be made, and Washington was wise to start with Barry, who didn't do as much as he should of with this group. Wade Phillips (Broncos) could be a hot target for Washington now.

  Redskins | Kenny Britt on Washington's radar    Wed Jan 4, 11:17 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Kenny Britt, who is about to become a free agent, has drawn interest from the Washington Redskins, according to a league source. It's considered that if the Redskins do not bring back WRs DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, they would 'likely' add veteran help during the offseason, with Britt being a viable option.

Footballguys view: Britt is entering free agency on a high note after posting career-best numbers with 68 catches and 1,002 receiving yards. Going to a place like Washington, with QB Kirk Cousins, could allow Britt to post even better statistics in 2017. It's something to keep an eye on.

  Redskins | Vernon Davis talking new deal with WAS    Tue Jan 3, 08:19 PM

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis is already discussing a new deal with the team.

Footballguys view: Davis was a good fit with Washington in 2016. After doing nothing for the 49ers and the Broncos in 2015 (although he did get a Super Bowl ring), Davis did a nice job as a backup and fill-in starter behind Jordan Reed. It would be a good move to keep Davis around in Washington if the price is right.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson only dealing with tendinitis?    Tue Jan 3, 12:53 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (foot) suggested to reporters he has not been given a certain diagnosis other than tendinitis and he 'definitely' feels a difference after resting the injury since landing on the Reserve/Injured list prior to Week 7.

Footballguys view: Doctson didn't get much done as a rookie, but if healthy he's got intriguing upside. That upside could be on display early and often if both DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon move on in free agency. Dynasty owners should add him on the cheap if possible.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson likely done in Washington    Tue Jan 3, 12:40 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson may have 'worn out his welcome' in the nation's capital, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Footballguys view: Jackson is hitting free agency, and he's likely to move on. We think a reunion with the Eagles could be the best possibility. Any team in need of deep speed at wide receiver should be interested in the veteran. Jackson was targeted 100 times in 2016, finishing with 56 catches for 1,005 yards and four touchdowns.

  Redskins | 'Solid chance' Pierre Garcon does not return    Tue Jan 3, 12:30 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is unlikely to return for less than the $7.6 million he earned this season, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Footballguys view: Garcon is set to hit free agency in 2017, and we don't think a return to Washington is in the cards. For the fourth year in a row, Garcon was targeted more than 100 times (114). He had 79 catches for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns in 2016.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley may have surgery    Mon Jan 2, 08:41 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (knee) probably will need to undergo arthroscopic surgery this offseason, but head coach Jay Gruden expects Kelley to get stronger and be in better shape.

Footballguys view: Kelley became the lead back for Washington this year, but he really didn't get going until the halfway point of the season. He had three games with 20 or more carries, and he did good work in those contests. If healthy, expect Kelley to be the lead back with a large workload for Washington in 2017.

  Redskins | Washington sign three to futures deals    Mon Jan 2, 06:25 PM

The Washington Redskins signed WR Matt Hazel, WR Kendal Thompson and TE Wes Saxton to Reserve/Futures contracts Monday, Jan. 2. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick (Dolphins) in 2014, Hazel has always been on our super deep dynasty radar. He's bounced around to three different teams in the pros, and now he has to find a way to stick on Washington's roster. Hazel is only 6'1" but he plays larger than his size and can snare difficult passes naturally away from his body.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins can still improve    Mon Jan 2, 05:39 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins needs to improve reading coverages and making off-script plays if he wants to take his game to the next level, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson's health a concern    Mon Jan 2, 04:52 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson's (Achilles') future health is unclear as he continues to be bothered by bot Achilles' tendons, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries aren't quite as devastating as they used to be, but they can be problematic if not given enough time to heal properly. Doctson is a smooth athlete, but his rookie season was a wash because of these Achilles' problems. We hope he can get healthy and get his career on track. If Doctson is ever healthy, there's Keenan Allen-like upside to his skill set.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley should be featured    Mon Jan 2, 04:30 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley is expected to be the Redskins' featured running back next season after a 'great, great year,' according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Kelley didn't get going until around the midway point of the season. He finished his rookie year with 704 yards rushing, 82 yards receiving and seven total touchdowns. In standard-scoring leagues, Kelley was a consideration at RB2 for fantasy owners every week.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed likely to play    Sun Jan 1, 10:29 AM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the New York Giants. He was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Reed hasn't looked able to play near his normal level since hurting his shoulder. Washington is basically in a "win and you're in" situation, so they will try to get what they can from Reed. His fantasy prospects are still very dim.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) was listed on as questionable on the Week 17 injury report despite looking 'great' in practice this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: It's all hands on deck for Washington. They need to win in order to get to the postseason, and having Reed out there against the Giants will help.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson practices    Thu Dec 29, 01:01 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (jaw) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (knee) is practicing Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Kelley is ready to go and while he faces a relatively tough defense in the Giants, he's one of the better bets to perform this week. Washington still has a shot at the playoffs, if they play well. Kelley will be the focal point of the offense and a solid start this weekend.
