Redskins' Su'a Cravens: Moving to safety
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cravens will spend his offseason adjusting to his new role at safety for the Redskins, JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com reports.

In his rookie season, Cravens totaled 34 tackles, five pass deflections, one sack and one interception in 11 games at linebacker. In his second year, the 21-year-old (6-foot-1, 222 pounds) will make the move to safety, a role he filled during his time at USC. With veterans Duke Ihenacho and Donte Whitner heading into free agency and DeAngelo Hall (knee) still recovering from an ACL tear, it seems likelier than not that Cravens will head into the season as a starter. What the former linebacker lacks in speed, he makes up for in intelligence and tackling ability. Look for more updates on his transition to come throughout the offseason.

Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Multi-year contract unlikely before March 1
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cousins and the Redskins aren't expected to reach terms of a multi-year contract prior to the franchise tag deadline on March 1, The Washington Post reports.

For the second consecutive offseason, the Redskins are expected to use their franchise tag on Cousins, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, which would be accompanied by a cap commitment of $23.94 million for the 2017 campaign. Holding leverage over the organization due to a lack of QB talent on their roster, no equivalent options on the upcoming free-agent market, and an underwhelming draft class, Cousins has significant leverage in contract negotiations once the tender is signed. The parties will still have until July 15 to reach an agreement on a long-term deal, with Cousins' representation potentially being able to gauge his value against Tony Romo and Jay Cutler, among other signal-callers, if and when they're in new uniforms.

Redskins' Rob Kelley: Projected as starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kelley (knee) is currently projected as the Redskins' starting running back in 2017, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Kelley, an undrafted rookie last year, started Washington's final nine games of the season after Matt Jones failed to impress to begin the campaign. In those appearances, Kelley finished with 601 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Although a knee problem that required a small surgery this offseason slowed him toward the end of that stretch, Kelley showed enough to project as the Redskins' top tailback heading into next season. With his numbers as a starter, that role could see Kelley eclipse 1,000 yards in 2017, but he'll need to continue to prove he's the team's best option to have that opportunity.

Redskins' Will Compton: Progressing well in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (knee - PCL) is progressing well from the knee injury he suffered in Week 14 against the Eagles. "I feel good about where I'll be come April," he said.

Compton missed just one game due to the sprained PCL and played through the injury in both of the Redskins' final two games. Offseason surgery wasn't necessary, however, so the Nebraska product has subscribed to a regimen of rest and rehab as a means for recovery. He has until mid-April to return to full strength.

Redskins' Niles Paul: Progressing ahead of schedule
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Paul (shoulder) is progressing ahead of schedule after undergoing shoulder surgery in November, Jake Kring-Schreifeis of the team's official site reports.

The veteran tight end said of his progress, "My progression is crazy and I'm in the weight room doing things I'm not supposed to be doing. I was doing pushups two months out and they couldn't believe that. I'm just trying to get right and to be mentally healthy for next season." Paul has only played in eight games the past two seasons due to various injuries but will look to put all that behind him in 2017. He is under contract for one more season and will look to compete with Jordan Reed, Derek Carrier and others for reps once healthy.
