  Redskins | Washington in need of a QB    Sun Apr 21, 01:23 PM

The Washington Redskins have QBs Case Keenum and Colt McCoy, but are still in need of a long-term solution at the position, and they are expected to spend a high-round draft pick on the position this week. 'There's a lot of guys up there, whether we're at (No.) 15 or we move up or we move back or what have you,' senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams said. 'You're always open. This is a quarterback league. You could never shut the door on a quarterback.'

Footballguys view: We're expecting Washington to add a quarterback, perhaps in the first round, in the 2019 NFL draft. They have the no.15 overall pick and might even want to move up a bit to secure a prospect like Drew Lock (Missouri) or Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State).

  Redskins | Paul Richardson reveals injuries    Thu Apr 18, 09:35 PM

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) said the shoulder injury that ended his 2018 season prematurely involved multiple fractures to his clavicle and required a metal plate to be inserted during surgery.

Footballguys view: Richardson is one of the most injury prone players in the league. He's talented, fast and can be a threat downfield but Richardson has been banged up quite a bit during his pro career and even dating back to his college days at Colorado.

  Redskins | Kyler Murray calls off visit to Washington    Tue Apr 16, 05:54 PM

Updating a previous report, Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray no longer plans on meeting with the Washington Redskins this week, according to a source via NFL.com's Steve Wyche.

Footballguys view: Washington has the no.15 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. It's highly unlikely that Murray would fall that far in the draft. In fact, we'd be shocked if Murray didn't go no.1 overall to the Arizona Cardinals.

  Redskins | Parris Campbell visiting Washington    Tue Apr 16, 09:37 AM

Ohio State WR Parris Campbell is visiting the Washington Redskins Tuesday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Campbell is dangerous with the rock. He's a quick, speedy and athletic playmaker who can score anytime he touches the ball. Campbell is not a finished product as a receiver but his athletic profile makes him an interesting player to project in the pros. He should be a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

  Redskins | Will Grier visiting Redskins    Tue Apr 16, 09:35 AM

Updating previous reports, West Virginia QB Will Grier is visiting the Washington Redskins Tuesday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Grier is one of the most intriguing quarterbacks in the 2019 NFL draft. He may be a first-round pick but most have him projected in the second round. We like his fight as a passer and willingness to attack the defense. Grier doesn't have the strongest arm but he can make every throw. His game reminds some in the scouting community of Andy Dalton when he came out of TCU.

  Redskins | Kyler Murray, Redskins to meet    Thu Apr 11, 06:34 PM

Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray is scheduled to meet with the Washington Redskins at some point next week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Washington would have to move up if they want Murray. They have the no.15 overall pick and Murray is set to be perhaps the first overall pick. We think Washington adds a quarterback in this draft, perhaps in the first round, but it would be surprising if Murray fell that far.

  Redskins | Josh Rosen-to-D.C. chances decent    Sun Apr 7, 01:41 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen is rumored to be on the trade block, and there's a 'solid chance' he winds up getting traded to the Washington Redskins, according to one Washington beat reporter.

Footballguys view: We could see Washington make a move for Rosen. They need to find a long-term solution at quarterback since Case Keenum is not that answer. Head coach Jay Gruden is on the hotseat and perhaps adding a first-round talent like Rosen could buy him more time.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins meeting with Washington    Sun Apr 7, 11:02 AM

Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins is meeting with the Washington Redskins this week.

Footballguys view: Watch for Washington to make a move at quarterback in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft. They have the no.15 overall pick and Haskins may be off the board by that time. If they want him badly, Washington may have to move up for him.

  Redskins | No QB for Washington early in draft?    Sat Apr 6, 11:12 PM

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said the team is in win-now mode and is expecting to take a player who can make an immediate impact with the No. 15 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Gruden may say that now, but April is the season of lies. Washington needs a quarterback of the future as Case Keenum is no long-term solution. We think they'll think long and hard about taking a quarterback in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.

  Redskins | Two prospects to visit Washington    Sat Apr 6, 01:35 PM

West Virginia QB Will Grier and Kansas State OT Dalton Risner are scheduled to meet with the Washington Redskins in the near future, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Grier could be an option for Washington with their no.15 overall pick. He's got a ton of moxie, is an accurate passer who always seems to be in 'attack' mode. Grier doesn't have a strong arm and needs space to fully utilize his mechanics (lower body) to create proper velocity. He's a first- or second-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

  Redskins | Jarrett Stidham visiting D.C.    Thu Apr 4, 12:32 PM

Former Auburn QB and 2019 NFL Draft prospect Jarrett Stidham is visiting with the Washington Redskins on Thursday, April 4. Stidham's visit is one of a number this offseason as Washington is vetting most of the top quarterback prospects.

Footballguys view: Washington is looking for a quarterback of the future and they may think Stidham is that guy. Stidham was considered a potential first-round pick before the start of the 2018 college football season, but his play with Auburn last year did not cement that status. Instead, Stidham should see his name get called in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft.

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams (illness) is expected to be ready for training camp after spending the last several weeks dealing with a medical scare that was reportedly related to a growth or tumor on his head.

  Redskins | Trey Quinn receives praise    Fri Mar 29, 09:24 PM

Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn is expected to replace WR Jamison Crowder in the slot, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'But I'm ready to watch Trey Quinn jump in that slot role and dominate the position,' Gruden said. 'I'm excited for him.'

Footballguys view: Quinn should take a big leap forward in 2019. The final pick of the 2018 NFL draft, Quinn reminded some in the scouting community of Adam Humphries. He is a fine route runner with the quickness to get open consistently. Washington has Case Keenum now at quarterback and he likes to throw short-to-intermediate passes. That means Quinn is a player to monitor in PPR leagues this season.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy had leg surgery    Sun Mar 24, 10:31 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (leg) had surgery on his right leg, but he is expected to be ready when offseason programs begin.

Footballguys view: McCoy is going to be competing with Case Keenum for the starting job in Washington this year. This leg surgery sounds minor but we'll see if it actually sets him back a bit in the upcoming competition.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson wants more in 2019    Sat Mar 23, 11:06 PM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson called his 2018 season 'decent' and believes he is capable of more in 2019.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Peterson gets the opportunity to do more in 2019. Washington has Derrius Guice, a sensational running back when healthy, to compete with Peterson to be the lead back. Guice missed all of his rookie season in 2018 due to a knee injury, and he's had quite a few complications trying to come back from those surgeries in the following months. If Guice is healthy, he could turn Washington's backfield into a RBBC...and a frustration for Fantasy GMs.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed working out with teammates    Thu Mar 21, 09:25 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) has been working out with teammates this offseason, according to RB Adrian Peterson.

  Redskins | Washington targeting Dwayne Haskins?    Wed Mar 20, 01:16 PM

Former Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins could be the subject of a draft trade between the Washington Redskins and New York Jets. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports believes the Redskins would be willing to make such a trade to fill a need at quarterback, although Washington did just trade for QB Case Keenum.

Footballguys view: The Jets have the no.3 overall pick but it's rumored to be up for grabs. Washington has Keenum and Colt McCoy to compete for the starting job in 2019. Perhaps they'd be interested in moving up to get Haskins. Most mock drafts have Haskins going off the board to the Giants with the 6th overall pick.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson officially back    Mon Mar 18, 03:18 PM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson was officially re-signed to his two-year contract Monday, March 13. It was originally reported that the deal is worth $8 million.

Footballguys view: Peterson still has plenty left in the tank but he may not be the clear-cut lead back for Washington in 2019. Derrius Guice missed all of his rookie season in 2018 due to a knee injury but should be healthy enough to play in 2019. If Guice can regain his pre-injury form, he's a talented runner with big-play ability. We'll see how Peterson works in what could be a RBBC for Washington this season.

  Redskins | Brian Quick back in Washington    Mon Mar 18, 01:34 PM

Free-agent WR Brian Quick (Redskins) re-signed with the Washington Redskins on Monday, March 18, agreeing to an undisclosed contract.

Footballguys view: Washington has Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson as their top two wide receivers. Behind them, Trey Quinn will likely work as the slot receiver and Jamison Crowder (Jets) replacement. Quick made it through six games in Washington last year, catching just three passes for 18 yards.

  Redskins | Trey Quinn could start in slot    Fri Mar 15, 10:50 PM

Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn could serve as the starting slot receiver next year, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'We feel great about Trey Quinn's progress last year, even though he got hurt a little bit,' Gruden said.

Footballguys view: Quinn, a seventh-round pick out of SMU in the 2018 NFL draft, is a fine route runner with the quickness to get open consistently. He appeared in three games (limited by ankle injuries) as a rookie, catching nine passes for 75 yards and one touchdown. Washington has Case Keenum now at quarterback and he likes to throw short-to-intermediate passes. That means Quinn is a player to monitor in PPR leagues this season.

  Redskins | Washington agrees to acquire Case Keenum    Thu Mar 7, 06:00 PM

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum will be acquired by the Washington Redskins in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round draft choice, according to a source. The Redskins will also receive a 2020 seventh-round draft choice in the deal. Keenum has also agreed to restructure his contract. The Broncos will pay $3.5 million of his 2019 salary, while the Redskins will pay the other $3.5 million. He will also receive a $500,000 bonus from the Broncos.

Footballguys view: Washington has to have a starter in place while Alex Smith tries to come back from his horrific leg injury. Smith may never play football again, so don't be surprised if Washington adds a quarterback in the draft too. Keenum failed as a starter with the Broncos for one year and will compete with Colt McCoy to be Washington's starter in 2019.
