  Redskins | Andre Roberts could be a returner    Sat Apr 19, 11:18 AM

The Washington Redskins may consider using WR Andre Roberts as a kick and punt returner this upcoming season, but he did not have great numbers when handled the role with the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Roberts saw his potential playing time cut when the team added DeSean Jackson. They want to get him on the field as much as they can as a third receiver and return man. Roberts has good speed and elusiveness in the open field.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson unlikely to be used as returner    Sat Apr 19, 11:07 AM

The Washington Redskins likely will not use WR DeSean Jackson as a punt returner very often because they want him to make plays on offense.

Footballguys view: Maybe just maybe the team would use him in a critical situation. He's too valuable to risk injury as a regular return man.

  Redskins | Arbitrator rules in DeSean Jackson, agent case    Thu Apr 17, 10:25 AM

An arbitrator ruled that Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson owes former agent Drew Rosenhaus $516,415 in back loans and fees.

Footballguys view: If you want to keep the "Jackson is a cancer and immature" narrative going--and who doesn't?--you could do so with this story. In so far as what we think, this is a non-issue and won't impact his on-field work next season.

  Redskins | Met with two prospects Tuesday    Wed Apr 16, 01:23 PM

The Washington Redskins met with Stanford OT Cameron Fleming and Rutgers WR Brandon Coleman Tuesday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Coleman is a huge prospect (6'6") who looks more like a tight end lined up at wide receiver. He is a red-zone threat because of his size, wingspan, and ability to rip away contested passes. The big man tracks the ball well over his shoulder, but he won't run away from any defenders in the open field. Coleman is worth a late-round pick.

  Redskins | Charles Sims expected to visit    Wed Apr 16, 11:59 AM

The Washington Redskins are expected to meet with West Virginia RB Charles Sims Wednesday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Sims is arguably the most well-rounded back in this class. He's a good runner with instincts and vision to run between the tackles. He's a good receiver who can create mismatches against linebackers on wheel routes. Sims plays a lot like Matt Forte (Bears) and should be a second- or third-round pick.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson reported for offseason workouts Monday, April 14, after missing last week because of a previously scheduled vacation.

  Redskins | Cody Latimer to visit    Mon Apr 14, 02:29 PM

The Washington Redskins are scheduled to meet with Indiana WR Cody Latimer Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: Latimer is a large receiver with fluid athleticism. He's got the ability to break tackles after the catch and can be a red-zone threat. Latimer is raw as a route-runner and he lacks elite speed or quickness.

  Redskins | Andre Roberts thought he would be No. 2 WR    Fri Apr 11, 07:15 PM

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts said he believed he would be the No. 2 receiver in 2014 but that was before the team added WR DeSean Jackson. Roberts said he does not know what his role will be this upcoming season. 'That's how the league is, that's how the league works,' Roberts said. 'Going into my situation, I wanted to be the No. 2 receiver. But I still don't how it's going to work out. Obviously, when you look at how much money is being made each guy, you'd think that's going to be [the] No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3."

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quickly in the NFL. Roberts will get over it. So long as he can be productive in the offense, his spot in the pecking order doesn't really matter. DeSean Jackson is a huge upgrade over Roberts as the team's WR2.

  Redskins | Work out Austin Collie    Thu Apr 10, 11:43 PM

The Washington Redskins recently worked out free-agent WR Austin Collie (Patriots).

Footballguys view: They're likely just updating their emergency list here. Collie could help as a reserve receiver if he's healthy. He'll likely have to wait until we get to training camp to get a job offer.

  Redskins | No setbacks for Jordan Reed    Tue Apr 8, 01:14 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) said he has not suffered any setbacks and is feeling great after dealing with a concussion in 2013.

Footballguys view: Good news for Washington here. Fantasy owners need to take note of Reed's health status as he could be fantasy relevant as a TE2 with upside in 2014. With Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson on the outside stretching the field, it will open up space for Reed in the middle seam. He's got the speed and athleticism to create mismatches every time he's on the field.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson agrees to terms    Tue Apr 1, 11:59 PM

The Washington Redskins have agreed to terms with WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) Tuesday, April 1. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: Jackson is a nice fit for the Jay Gruden system. His deep speed will come in handy since his quarterback (Robert Griffin III) is one of the most accurate throwers in the league on bucket throws over 25 yards. It will be interesting to see how he fits in with Pierre Garcon starting on the opposite side.
