Redskins' Chris Thompson: Re-signs with Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson re-signed with the Redskins on Friday.

Thompson remains in Washington after receiving a second-round tender offer from the Redskins as a restricted free agent earlier this offseason. Last year, the 2013 fifth-round selection posted career highs across the board, accumulating 356 rushing yards on 68 attempts and catching 49 passes for 349 yards while totaling five touchdowns. With an average of 5.5 yards per carry since entering the league, and at least 35 catches in back-to-back seasons, Thompson is a great third-down option out of the Redskins backfield, where Rob Kelley and Matt Jones represent his biggest competitors for touches right now.

Redskins' Mack Brown: Improves cuts and conditioning in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown worked out with Bills running back LeSean McCoy this offseason, focusing on his balance and cuts in addition to his conditioning, Stephen Czarda of Redskins.com reports.

Brown said he gained about eight pounds of muscle while also losing some bad weight, leaving him at 217 pounds with only six percent body fat. He hopes the improvement will help him earn a spot on the Week 1 roster -- something he failed to do last season when he spent most of September and October on the practice squad. Brown did join the active roster for nine games, but he only took eight carries for 82 yards and a touchdown, with all of that work coming in Week 16. While the impressive cameo and his improved physique should help his cause, Brown likely will find himself battling for one of the final roster spots behind fellow running backs Robert Kelley and Chris Thompson. The competition will include Matt Jones, Keith Marshall and possibly a selection from the upcoming draft.

Redskins' Trent Murphy: Officially suspended four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is officially suspended for the first four games of the 2017 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

Murphy appealed the decision but was denied. While he's still eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, the Redskins could enter the 2017 campaign with very little depth at outside linebacker, depending on what they do in the upcoming draft, considering Junior Galette (Achilles, legal troubles) is also at risk of missing some action at the beginning of the season.

Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Still far apart with team on extension terms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins and the Redskins remain far apart on long-term contract negotiations, ESPN.com's John Keim reports.

Cousins suggested he's fine with playing under his franchise-tag salary of $23.94 million if the alternative is accepting a contract that the Redskins can get out of after a couple seasons. The team did offer him a five-year deal worth approximately $20 million per year, but the offer was so far from what he's seeking that Cousins' side didn't even bother countering. Depending on how much of the deal is guaranteed and when those guarantees kick in, Cousins might be amenable to a contract with an average annual value that's only slightly above $20 million. The two sides have until July 15 to reach an agreement, but even if nothing gets worked out by that time, both Cousins and the Redskins have repeatedly stated he'll be with the team for at least one more season. The team probably won't even listen to a trade offer unless it includes multiple early-round picks.

Redskins' Junior Galette: Facing legal troubles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galette (Achilles) was arrested Friday night on accusations of disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Galette was arrested following an altercation at the MGM Park minor-league baseball stadium in Biloxi, Mississippi. It's unclear at this point in time if he'll face discipline from either the league or the Redskins.
