  Redskins | Brian Quick to Redskins    Fri Mar 24, 10:19 AM

Free-agent WR Brian Quick (Rams) has agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins Friday, March 24. Terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Washington lost both Pierre Garcon (49ers) and DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) in free agency, but they've worked hard to add more talent on the open market. They brought on Terrelle Pryor earlier this year, and he should be their top target in the passing game. Quick will compete for a roster spot and a spot in the pecking order behind Pryor, Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson.

  Redskins | Junior Galette targeting training camp    Wed Mar 22, 12:28 AM

Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette (Achilles') has been training 'in hopes of taking the field with his teammates by the start of training camp, if not sooner,' according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post. He hasn't played a single down since the 2014 season.

Footballguys view: Who knows what Galette has to offer at this point. If healthy (a BIG if), Galette could work as a part-time pass-rusher for Washington.

  Redskins | Redskins shoot down Kirk Cousins suitors    Tue Mar 14, 11:12 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is still garnering interest, as three other teams have tried to trade for him 'in the last 10 days or so,' only to be 'quickly shot down,' according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Washington seems to be content with letting Cousins play out this year on his second (and final) franchise tag. Cousins may not want to stay with Washington long term, and that's why we think he somehow/someway ends up with Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers.

  Redskins | Terrelle Pryor to work with Kirk Cousins    Tue Mar 14, 01:07 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor has made plans to practice with Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and wide receivers in late April, Pryor said during his introductory press conference Monday, March 13.

Footballguys view: Pryor should work diligently to create a strong chemistry with Cousins. In the Washington offense, Pryor has WR1 upside for fantasy owners. You can probably draft him as a WR2 in drafts later this year.

  Redskins | Terrelle Pryor finds new home in D.C.    Fri Mar 10, 03:57 PM

Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Browns) agreed to terms on a one-year, $8 million contract with the Washington Redskins on Friday, March 10.

Footballguys view: Washington needed to find an upgrade at wide receiver since they just lost both Pierre Garcon (49ers) and DeSean Jackson (Bucs). Pryor had a career season with the Browns last year, and he's going to want to best those numbers in what is a "prove it" season.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins won't sign long-term deal    Fri Mar 10, 01:37 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will reportedly not agree to a long-term deal with the team as long as team president Bruce Allen remains in power.

Footballguys view: The Washington front office drama is going to cost them Cousins. He can play this year for them on the franchise tag again, or Cousins could be traded to the 49ers. Stay tuned.

  Redskins | Terrelle Pryor exits Washington    Fri Mar 10, 11:56 AM

Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Browns) left his visit with the Washington Redskins Friday, March 10, without a deal.

Footballguys view: Pryor is the best receiver left on the open market. The Browns signed Kenny Britt, so they're unlikely to bring Pryor back. Washington could use a player like Pryor after losing DeSean Jackson (Bucs) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) in free agency.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins signs tender    Fri Mar 10, 11:26 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins signed his franchise tender Friday, March 10. He can now be traded, but the team has shown no indication of doing so.

Footballguys view: Cousins is comfortable playing one more year on the franchise tag, but he doesn't want to stay in Washington long term. He'll likely end up with the 49ers somehow...whether or not that's via trade this year or as a free agent next year.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins will sign tender    Thu Mar 9, 08:12 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will sign his franchise tag tender soon, and he will be a 'good soldier,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Behaving or not, it's not worth this headache to keep a player who is this unhappy. Too often the wheels come off and the locker room goes south. Add in losing two of his biggest weapons and it's hard not to feel that Washington is hoping this goes badly for Cousins and they get him on the cheap next offseason.

  Redskins | Washington fires GM Scot McCloughan    Thu Mar 9, 07:23 PM

  Redskins | Washington to meet with Terrelle Pryor    Thu Mar 9, 04:35 PM

Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Browns) is scheduled to visit with the Washington Redskins in the near future.

Footballguys view: Pryor is still looking for a home since the Browns aren't pursuing him that hard. He still has to finish developing as a receiver, but we like what he's done so far and feel like he could continue to become a solid fantasy earner.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins asked for trade    Thu Mar 9, 11:44 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins asked owner Dan Snyder for a trade, but he was essentially told not to get his hopes up, according to sources.

Footballguys view: We understand why Washington is handling Cousins the way they are in many ways, but it does seem as though they are going to burn the bridge as they use it. Cousins is a decent franchise quarterback, but Washington can't keep stringing him along. At some point they have to make a decision.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden receives extension    Sun Mar 5, 12:50 AM

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden has signed a two-year extension, according to a source.

Footballguys view: He's the first head coach to ever be extended by owner Daniel Snyder. He's owned the team since 1999 so it's a fairly big deal to finally find a coach Snyder wants to keep around. Under Gruden, Washington has a 17-14-1 record over the past two seasons.

Footballguys view: The reports about Romo winding up in Washington always seemed far fetched. Never say never, but Washington is the biggest rival of the Cowboys.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden praises Rob Kelley    Sat Mar 4, 09:34 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley runs hard and has good vision, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden said he expects Kelley is only going to get stronger.

Footballguys view: Kelley can be a solid starter for Washington in 2017. He finished his rookie season with 704 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns. Kelley is not a third-down back so we may see the team look for some additional help in the backfield.

  Redskins | Washington not talking to Pierre Garcon    Fri Mar 3, 02:48 PM

Impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon (Redskins) hasn't 'heard a word' from the Washington Redskins in regards to signing him to a deal prior to the start of free agency.

Footballguys view: Garcon and DeSean Jackson are both likely gone in free agency. We could see Garcon moving to a team like the 49ers where he can play an even larger role than he did in Washington. He posted over 100 catches (113) in 2013, and Garcon may get a chance for that kind of role with a new team.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and the Redskins are discussing a long-term deal worth $20 million per year, according to a source. Cousins' franchise tag is worth around $24 million this year.

Footballguys view: This is just good sense, and really, we expected a longer term deal to materialize when they applied the franchise tag again. Cousins is a solid player who has nice fantasy value, but we need to see who he is throwing to since Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson are currently not with the club.
