Redskins' Keith Marshall: Says he's healthy and ready to compete
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marshall (elbow) said he is healthy and ready to compete for a roster spot, the Redskins' official website reports

A top recruit whose college career was marred by knee injuries, Marshall pushed his way into the sixth round of last year's draft after leading all running backs at the NFL Scouting Combine in both the 40-yard dash (4.31) and bench press (25 rep). He seemingly had a shot to earn a role in a shaky Washington backfield before he suffered a season-ending elbow injury in the team's third preseason game. Undrafted rookie Robert Kelly eventually seized the lead job from Matt Jones, with Chris Thompson doing his usual strong work on passing downs. Marshall will thus be left to compete with Jones, Mack Brown and at least one rookie for what likely will be one or two roster spots. Depending on what the Redskins do in the upcoming draft, Marshall could find himself on the outside looking in, though his freakish athleticism would seemingly at least make him a good candidate for the practice squad.

Redskins' Will Compton: Signs tender with Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (knee) signed his restricted free agent tender with the Redskins on Monday, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Compton went undrafted out of Nebraska but has developed into a valued member of the Redskins defense through his first four seasons. The 27-year-old has posted at least 95 tackles in back-to-back campaigns, including a career-best 106 stops last year, which came despite him dealing with a sprained PCL toward the end of the season. However, after not needing surgery to repair that problem, Compton should now be raring to go as he faces competition from offseason signee Zach Brown for a starting inside linebacker position this term.

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.
