  Redskins | Tom Compton re-signs    Fri Feb 27, 03:18 PM

Washington Redskins OT Tom Compton has re-signed with the Redskins. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Compton struggled at right tackle last year, but the team must think he still has developmental upside.

  Redskins | Stephen Bowen let go    Fri Feb 27, 03:14 PM

Washington Redskins DE Stephen Bowen was released Friday, Feb. 27.

Footballguys view: The move saves Washington about $5.5 million in cap space. Knee injuries over the last two years have prevented Bowen from playing up to his potential. He's free to sign with any team at any time now that he's on the open market.

  Redskins | Barry Cofield to be released    Fri Feb 27, 02:16 PM

Washington Redskins DT Barry Cofield said he has been told he will be released, according to his agent.

Footballguys view: Washington saves about $4.2 million with this move. Last season, groin and ankle injuries slowed him down but before that Cofield started every game in his Washington career.

  Redskins | Ricky Jean-Francois signs    Thu Feb 26, 06:56 PM

Free-agent DT Ricky Jean-Francois (Colts) signed a three-year deal with the Washington Redskins Thursday, Feb. 26. The deal is worth $9 million with $4 million guaranteed and a total value of $11.25 million.

Footballguys view: The move makes a lot of sense for both sides. Washington general manager Scot McCloughan has ties to Jean-Francois. When he was GM of the 49ers, McCloughan selected Jean-Francois with a seventh-round pick in the 2009 NFL draft. Jean-Francois gets to sign early before the real hysteria of free agency begins.

  Redskins | Meeting with James Casey    Thu Feb 26, 12:17 PM

Free-agent TE James Casey (Eagles) is scheduled to meet with the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Casey is a good all around tight end, but more proficient as a blocker than a pass-catcher. With Niles Paul a free agent and concerns remaining about Jordan Reed and his concussion issues, we could see Washington bringing in some help. There's a good chance Washington brings Paul back first, but Casey would be another solid option.

  Redskins | Meeting with Ricky Jean-Francois    Wed Feb 25, 12:07 PM

Free-agent DT Ricky Jean-Francois (Colts) is scheduled to meet with the Washington Redskins this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Colts made the move to get rid of Jean-Francois in an effort to gain more salary cap space. He could still be an effective player for the right team. Washington could use Jean-Francois at left end because they're expected to lose Jarvis Jenkins in free agency.

  Redskins | Amari Cooper talks with Redskins    Fri Feb 20, 04:12 PM

Alabama WR Amari Cooper said he has talked with the Washington Redskins at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Washington has some good weapons for their quarterback (whoever that is) to throw to, with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson in house. They might kick the tires on Cooper, but it seems unlikely they would pull the trigger on a wide receiver in the first round.

  Redskins | GM remains high on Robert Griffin    Fri Feb 20, 02:31 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will enter the 2015 season as the team's starting quarterback, and general manager Bruce Allen thinks Griffin's ceiling in the NFL remains high. Griffin missed five games last year with a dislocated ankle, and Allen said Griffin must stay healthy in order to realize his potential. 'There's never been a question about him watching film,' Allen said. 'He is motivated. He's a (25-year-old) man who is still growing and learning the NFL game. We've seen him, a couple years ago, play at the highest of highs. Maybe it spoiled us a little bit to expect that all the time.'

Footballguys view: After being left out of a letter to the ticket holders, Griffin has to be wondering what the future holds for him and Washington. He has never been able to recover the form he had in his rookie season, though he has had flashes. His injuries have made people think maybe he has to totally change his style and remain in the pocket. He didn't seem a particularly good fit for Washington's new offense in 2014 and never was able to look comfortable since the injury which took him out of the playoff game his rookie year. We're anxious to see what he has in store for OTAs and what the team truly thinks about him and his role.

  Redskins | Pierre Garcon in 'Skins' plans    Wed Feb 18, 02:54 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon would save the team a lot of money if he were to be cut, but head coach Jay Gruden said Garcon is still in the team's plans.

Footballguys view: Garcon comes with a cap hit of $9.7 million in 2015, plus there still $4.4 million in dead money remaining on his contract. We could see the team approach him about taking a pay cut this offseason.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin to start    Wed Feb 18, 01:16 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will go into the season as the team's starting starting quarterback, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: No surprise here....or at least there shouldn't be. Griffin needs to stay healthy and produce up to his enormous potential. It seems like he's on the right track to getting back to the player he was during his phenomenal rookie season.

Indianapolis Colts OT Xavier Nixon was claimed off waivers by the Washington Redskins Friday, Feb. 13.


  Redskins | Kirk Cousins in the mix for Redskins?    Wed Feb 11, 08:30 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins should have the opportunity to battle Redskins QB Robert Griffin III for the team's starting quarterback position, in the opinion of The Washington Post's Mike Jones. Jones noted Cousins displayed better feel in the pocket than Griffin but also acknowledged that Cousins was unable to avoid turnovers.

Footballguys view: Cousins is no long-term answer for Washington. He's accurate on shorter passes, but he struggles to throw with proper velocity on passes over 10 yards and his game crumbles under pressure. We'd be shocked if Cousins was able to beat out a healthy Griffin in training camp.

  Redskins | Pierre Garcon may have to restructure    Sat Feb 7, 06:42 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is expected to be asked to restructure his contract this offseason to lower his $9.7 million salary cap hit in 2015.

Footballguys view: We won't be surprised if Washington goes ahead and makes this request. His production slipped from 113 catches in 2013 to 68 in 2014. Receiving yardage was down from 1,346 to 762 as well.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin 'I wasn't healthy and it sucked'    Thu Jan 29, 08:21 PM

John Keim, from ESPN.com, reports Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III blames his 2014 woes on his injured ankle. Griffin said, "Last year I wasn't healthy, and it sucked, there's no other way to say it other than that. When you get broken and dragged home in the second week of the season ... When you and your team have big things in mind ... It's just getting healthy, getting the mental break, getting a chance to spend time with family, and then formulate my plan going forward for this year, and go ahead and win games and be playing again at this time next year."

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners should not be giving up on Griffin. Things have gone off the rails for him since his breakout rookie season of 2012. We'll see if Griffin can get back on track this year. We see 2015 as a make-or-break season for the athletic quarterback.

  Redskins | Perry Fewell hired as secondary coach    Tue Jan 27, 04:28 PM

Former New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has joined the Washington Redskins as their secondary coach, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Fewell was a hotter name among the position coaches. He was interviewed by the 49ers, and there were some thinking the Bengals would take a look at the former Giants defensive coordinator.

  Redskins | Vic Fangio not offered DC job    Mon Jan 19, 03:51 AM

Former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was not offered the DC job with the Washington Redskins following his interview on Sunday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: A curious move here. We thought Fangio would be the right fit, but apparently the team wants to take more time before they name a new defensive coordinator.

  Redskins | Meeting with Vic Fangio again    Sun Jan 18, 08:39 AM

Free-agent defensive coordinator Vic Fangio (49ers) will have a second meeting with the Washington Redskins about the team's vacant defensive coordinator position Sunday, Jan. 18. Fangio also met with Washington Saturday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Washington needs a serious overhaul on defense. Adding Fangio to run that side of the ball would be an upgrade.

  Redskins | Interested in Vic Fangio    Thu Jan 15, 03:04 PM

The Washington Redskins have interest in free-agent defensive coordinator Vic Fangio (49ers) for their vacant defensive coordinator position, per league sources.

Footballguys view: Whomever gets Fangio gets a very solid defensive coordinator. Turns out, Washington needs that badly.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin to receive another chance    Fri Jan 9, 05:43 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III likely will be given another chance to succeed, because teams should not give up on young quarterbacks, according to general manager Scot McCloughan.

Footballguys view: It's too soon (and Washington gave up too much) to give up on Griffin. We'll see 2015 as a year where he needs to get his career back on track. After a fantastic rookie season in 2012, Griffin has struggled to stay healthy and produce consistently. McCoughlan said Griffin needs to be surrounded by a strong running attack and a more reliable offensive line.

  Redskins | Jim Haslett let go    Wed Dec 31, 10:12 AM

Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has mutually agreed to part ways with the team Wednesday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: We're not surprised by this news. Haslett had been struggling to put a quality defense on the field for years now. Injuries at various positions didn't help, but Haslett's scheme was just not working.

  Redskins | Santana Moss wants to continue playing    Tue Dec 30, 05:38 AM

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss, who does not have a contract for 2015, wants to continue playing and would prefer to stick with the Redskins.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Washington wants Moss back. The veteran receiver appeared in only nine games this year, finished 2014 with 10 catches for 116 yards. We doubt he comes back, and there's probably not a lot of teams lined up for his services at this point in his career.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden does not commit to QB    Mon Dec 29, 08:58 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and the rest of the team's quarterbacks will be evaluated methodically during the offseason before a decision on a starter for the 2015 season is made, head coach Jay Gruden said Monday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Of course he didn't. The team is looking for Robert Griffin III to play better in 2015. Kirk Cousins is still with the team, and apparently doesn't want to be traded. More of the same from Washington is not good enough. Cousins struggled as a starter in 2014, but Griffin showed a *little* bit better confidence as a starter.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he has not asked for a trade and will be fine if he is a backup against next season. Cousins said he knows there are things he needs to work on during the offseason of improve his play.

Footballguys view: Cousins has not asked for a trade--yet. That could change if he becomes frustrated with the situation. Cousins wouldn't fetch that much in a trade if he was on the block anyway.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins itching for opportunity    Mon Dec 29, 11:49 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said it would be tough to return to the team in 2015 if QB Robert Griffin III was given the starting job. Cousins said he would talk to the front office.

Footballguys view: We can understand why Cousins wants his shot as a starter, but that may not happen in Washington. Cousins may request a trade if Griffin is named the top QB, but we can't imagine his trade value would be too high. Perhaps there's some team out there that would be willing to give up a mid-round pick.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson makes big play    Sun Dec 28, 01:14 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught a 69-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 17 game.

Footballguys view: Jackson's long run after a short catch highlighted his game-breaking speed that hasn't diminished one bit after the Eagles released him. If he can get consistent QB play, Jackson could approach WR1 numbers in 2015.

'We just want to make sure he doesn't aggravate it more, give him another couple days of rest and be ready to go Friday.'

Footballguys view: Yeah, this was pretty much expected. Griffin has shown better confidence over the last two weeks. We'll see if he can continue to build momentum for next year.
