Position Listing
Austin Reiter
News
The Redskins have signed two of their draft picks to four-year deals, a source has told the Washington Post.

Cornerback Tevin Mitchel, a sixth-rounder, as well as seventh-round center Austin Reiter have both reportedly finalized their agreements.

Preston Smith
News
Redskins defensive end Preston Smith recorded a sack and three tackles in Week 4 in which he played a season high 30 snaps, the Washington Post reports.

According to the coaching staff he will continue to be Trent Murphy's backup. Apparently Smith practices at a lower level than he demonstrates on game day. The coaching staff wants to see Smith practice hard before trusting him in games.

Bashaud Breeland
News
Breeland (hamstring/illness) is listed as active Sunday against the Giants, Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan DC reports

Absent from Friday's practice due to an illness, Breeland will seek to uphold his standard as a fringe IDP option. On the season, he's notched 54 tackles (37 solo), two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries in nine games.

Jamison Crowder
News
The Redskins want to keep Crowder on the field in three-wide formations, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

A 2015 fourth-round selection, Crowder primarily worked out of the slot as a rookie, catching 59 passes for 604 yards and two touchdowns on 79 targets. Despite putting together an efficient first season, Crowder's role came into some question after the Redskins used their first-round pick on WR Josh Doctson, who joins Crowder, DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed to form one of the league's deeper receiving corps. While Doctson can't be ruled out as a threat to take snaps away from Crowder, the rookie might actually present more of a challenge to Jackson and/or Garcon on the outside.

Duke Ihenacho
News
Ihenacho re-signed with Washington on Wednesday, Rick Snider of The Washington Post reports.

Ihenacho will remain with Washington after spending the past two seasons with the team. He now has a chance to claim a starting role after the release of Dashon Goldson and Jeron Johnson earlier in the week. Last season he played in just one game, recording three tackles.

Kory Lichtensteiger
News
Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher has missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Hatcher has missed Washington's last two games with a knee injury.

Trent Williams (shoulder), Chris Baker (toe/elbow), Gabe Miller (ankle), Keenan Robinson (knee) and Stephen Bowen (ankle/illness) are all listed as questionable for the game. 

Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Bashaud Breeland (thigh), Barry Coefield (shoulder), Tom Compton (knee), Will Compton (shoulder), Jackson Jeffcoat (calf), Kory Lichtensteiger (stinger) and Darrel Young (ankle) are all considered probable.

The Redskins are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs at home against the Cowboys. 

Mason Foster
News
Foster will likely compete with Will Compton for a starting job at inside linebacker alongside Perry Riley, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Foster re-signed with Washington in March, after starting the final six games (including playoffs) of the 2015 season in place of an injured Perry Riley. Although Riley is expected to step back in to his three-down role, Foster could beat out Will Compton for the other starting job. Riley remains the best target in IDP leagues.

Matt Jones
News
Washington offensive coordinator Sean McVay said Jones (hip/groin) has the traits that teams look for in an every-down running back, the Redskins' official website reports.

This almost goes without saying, as the Redskins did very little to address the running back position after losing Alfred Morris to the rival Cowboys. Chris Thompson (shoulder) still figures to be in the mix for passing downs, but it appears Jones will have a clear path to the feature-back role. He was shaky as a rookie, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry while fumbling five times (four lost) on 163 touches (19 catches). However, he did rip off a few long gains, and he was one of the standouts from the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine. Both Jones and Thompson figure to be healthy for the start of training camp.

Josh Norman
News
Norman contacted Panthers team officials in an attempt to sign his franchise tag shortly after Carolina rescinded its offer last week, The Charlotte Observer reports.

Norman was reportedly blindsided by the Panthers withdrawing their offer, but hoped to sign his $13.95 million tag once the team's plan to move on from him was made public. However, with general manager Dave Gettleman unwilling to meet Norman's long-term contract demands, and also intrigued by the cap flexibility that would be opened by parting with Norman, the Panthers declined on Norman's offer to sign. From there, Norman obviously ended up signing a record-setting five-year, $75 million deal with the Redskins, cementing his NFL future while making his departure from the Panthers official.

Trent Williams
News
The Redskins made offensive tackle Trent Williams the highest paid tackle in NFL history after the two sides reached a five-year deal worth $66 million, reports the NFL Network.

Williams will average $13.2 million during the contract with $43.25 million guaranteed. Williams has started 70 games for the Redskins over the last five seasons.

Greg Toler
News
Washington and Toler agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Toler's tackle total each season has wobbled throughout his six-year career, but after recording at least one interception in each of his first five campaigns, he failed to pick off a pass in 2015. With Chris Culliver recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, Washington has brought Toler and Will Blackmon into the fold this offseason, likely to compete for the starting cornerback gig opposite Bashaud Breeland. As a result, Toler could return to IDP relevance with an impressive preseason.

Arie Kouandjio
No Updates
Keith Marshall
News
Marshall probably won't be a serious threat to Matt Jones' workload, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Not your typical seventh-round rookie, Marshall led all running backs at the Combine in both the 40-yard dash (4.31) and bench press (25 reps), also checking in with ideal size (5-11, 219). His college track record is the drawback, as knee injuries and talented teammates combined to keep him off the field for most of his time at UGA. While Marshall could instantly compete for a reserve role in an unproven Washington backfield, the team has strongly suggested that Matt Jones is slated for the lead-back job.

Jordan Reed
News
Reed was held out of minicamp on Tuesday to rest his sprained ankle, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Reed is also expected to sit out of practice on Wednesday as the Redskins plan to proceed with caution at this point in the offseason. He's proven to be a bit injury-prone over the past few seasons, but this ankle issue shouldn't linger into training camp later this summer.

Rashad Ross
News
Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson will miss 3-4 weeks due to a pulled hamstring, coach Jay Gruden told reporters Monday. 

"Could be shorter, but you never know with a hamstring," Gruden said.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported earlier Monday that Jackson was slated to miss a few games after an MRI revealed a fairly significant strain.

Jackson sustained the injury early in Week 1 against the Dolphins. He had no catches and was injured on his only target, which was a deep pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Gruden said wide receiver Rashad Ross will have "to step up" in Jackson's absence. He also pointed to wide receivers Ryan Grant and Jamison Crowder as playing a larger role on offense.

Although, Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed were the focal points of the passing game after Jackson exited Sunday's season opener.

Ejiro Ederaine
No Updates
Su'a Cravens
News
Cravens will begin his career at linebacker, instead of defensive back, in order to learn the defense from the inside-out, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and could claim a starting role by Week 1, the The Washington Post reports.

Cravens, at 6-1 and 222 pounds, was drafted as a safety, but is considered part of the influx of the new "moneybackers" breed, a defensive back/linebacker hybrid. Because of Cravens' versatility, his head coach presumably did not feel limited in keeping the USC product at safety, and will instead position him to begin his professional career as a linebacker. Surprisingly, Gruden went on to say Cravens could even start as soon as opening day. With a dearth of talent surrounding him at linebacker, however, the realization of Cravens starting his first NFL contest appears farfetched.

Silas Redd
News
The NFL has suspended Redd indefinitely for a violation of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Bans of this variety are due to continued positive tests, which is evident as Redd has yet to serve a four-gamer for a similar violation due to his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL. Once healthy enough to return to the field, he'll have to bide his time and do his due diligence considering NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be in charge of any reinstatement effort.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended indefinitely
Terence Garvin
News
Garvin had one tackle against Denver on Sunday. A restricted free agent, he totaled nine tackles (eight solo) in 2015.

Most of Garvin's playing time came on special teams, just as it had in 2014. He should not be someone fantasy owners are targeting in IDP leagues for 2016.

T.J. Thorpe
No Updates
DeAngelo Hall
News
Hall is penciled in as Washington's starting free safety at this point in the offseason, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

With only scraps remaining on the free-agent market and the NFL Draft less than a month in the future, Hall will remain in the back of Washington's secondary. After putting together four consecutive complete campaigns from 2010 through 2013, an array of injuries have limited him to 14 appearances the past two seasons, during which he totaled 64 tackles (51 solo), two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and one defensive touchdown. The production is a far cry from the peak of his career, especially with no picks on the ledger during that stretch, but the 32-year-old currently has no competition at strong safety.

Houston Bates
News
The Redskins announced they have signed defensive end Frank Kearse on Monday. Kearse had been released by the team over the weekend.

Linebacker Houston Bates was waived in a corresponding move on Monday. 

Willie Jefferson
News
The Bills released linebacker Willie Jefferson, according to the team's website.
Josh LeRibeus
News
The Redskins listed the following players as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Cowboys: Chris Thompson, Kenny Okoro, Josh LeRibeus, Rishaw Johnson, Travian Robertson, Leonard Hankerson and Steve Beauharnais .
Steven Daniels
News
The Redskins selected Daniels in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 232nd overall.

Daniels is a thumper prospect who generally doesn't have the look of much more than a special teams player in the NFL. Undersized and short on athleticism, asking a three-down role of him seems like a lot.

Ryan Kerrigan
News
Kerrigan (hand) recorded two sacks in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Kerrigan has 3 sacks in the last two week snad 6.5 sacks and 26 tackles on the season. His offseason knee surgery and recent broken hand have likely hampered his output this year.

Deshazor Everett
News
The Redskins signed former Seahawks tightend Anthony McCoy and waived cornerback DeShazor Everett on Monday, according to the Washington Post.
Cody Booth
News
The Jaguars signed tight end Michael Egnew to their practice squad and waived offensive lineman Cody Booth, reports the National Football Post. He was released by the Lions last month.
Geno Matias-Smith
No Updates
Tress Way
News
Washington's backup running backs did little Week 14 against the Rams.

Silas Redd received one carry, gaining 8 yards. He finished second on the team in rushing. Redd did manage to make an impact in the passing game, though. He caught three passes for 36 yards. Redd was targeted four times. Punter Tress Way also got a carry, gaining 2 yards.

They'll look for more Week 15 against the Giants. 

Brandon Scherff
News
Redskins first-round pick Brandon Scherff has impressed the team in early OTAs. 

Coach Jay Gruden said that Scherff "doesn't need a chip" on his shoulder to play hard, because "he's going to try his butt off on every play", according to the team's Twitter feed.

Gruden said the "intent" was to install Scherff at starting right tackle. "We'll find a spot for him...he'll be a heck of a player for us."

Carlos Fields
News
The Giants signed cornerback Victor Hampton and linebacker Carlos Fields to the practice squad Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.
Ziggy Hood
News
Hood was released by the Bears on Tuesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

A first-round selection back in 2009, Hood has just 12.5 sacks and 164 tackles in 96 career games. Wherever he might land, he'll likely have to compete for a back-end roster spot next season.

DeSean Jackson
News
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he isn't worried about Jackson's spotty attendance at voluntary offseason workouts, ESPN.com reports. "He has been here, he has popped in and had a cup of coffee," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. "Last time I looked up the word 'voluntary,' that is his choice, and he has been in the league nine years. He knows what type of shape he has to come in. Obviously, last year he pulled his hamstring, and some people say it was because he was out of shape, but he wasn't really."

Whatever else his reputation might be, Jackson has never faced any serious questions regarding his conditioning, even after missing six games with hamstring injuries last season. Further alleviating any potential concern is the fact that he'll be playing in the same offensive scheme for a third straight season as he enters the final year of his contract. The Redskins did draft WR Josh Doctson at No. 22 overall, but GM Scot McCloughan said the team will retain both Jackson and Pierre Garcon, who is also entering the final year of his contract. Given Jackson's value as a top deep threat, Garcon is likely the one in real danger of losing snaps and/or targets to the rookie. Interestingly enough, the Redskins may actually be pleased with Jackson's lack of attendance, as he could've collected a $500,000 bonus if he'd shown up for 90 percent of the voluntary program.

Jerrell Powe
News
The Redskins signed free agent nose tackle Jerrell Powe on Monday, per the NFL's transactions report.

Powe played for Houston last season and Kansas City the three years prior.

Powe had 10 tackles and a pass defense last season. 

Martrell Spaight
No Updates
Kendall Reyes
News
Reyes signed a one-year deal with the Redskins on Friday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

The 27-year-old spent his first four seasons with the Chargers. He has recorded 13.5 sacks in 64 games. Last season he started in 15 games with San Diego, finishing with 25 tackles, two sacks, and an interception. Reyes figures to sure-up the Redskins defensive line after Jason Hatcher and Terrance Knighton left in free agency.

Corey Crawford
No Updates
Chris Baker
News
Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher has missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Hatcher has missed Washington's last two games with a knee injury.

Trent Williams (shoulder), Chris Baker (toe/elbow), Gabe Miller (ankle), Keenan Robinson (knee) and Stephen Bowen (ankle/illness) are all listed as questionable for the game. 

Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Bashaud Breeland (thigh), Barry Coefield (shoulder), Tom Compton (knee), Will Compton (shoulder), Jackson Jeffcoat (calf), Kory Lichtensteiger (stinger) and Darrel Young (ankle) are all considered probable.

The Redskins are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs at home against the Cowboys. 

Colt McCoy
News
McCoy has agreed to a three-year deal to remain with Washington, the Washington Post reports.

With the franchise having parted ways with Robert Griffin, the team has quickly moved to ensure stability at the top of the QB depth chart, by franchising starter Kirk Cousins and securing the services of McCoy to remain his backup.

Joe Kerridge
No Updates
Josh Doctson
News
Coach Jay Gruden stated Thursday that Doctson (foot/Achilles) will remain sidelined until he's 100 percent.

Doctson's placement on the active/PUP list belied the expectation that he'd be healthy at the outset of training camp, but tendinitis in his left Achilles and a separate foot injury will keep him away from the practice field. Considering the season is a marathon -- and not a sprint -- it behooves Washington's staff to take a cautious approach with the 22nd overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. However, lacking Jamison Crowder's experience in the offense, Doctson is poised to fall even further behind in the competition for slotting in the receiving corps.

Injury
Foot - PUP. Probable for start of season
Ricky Jean Francois
News
The Redskins signed defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois to a three-year deal Thursday, reports the NFL Network.

The deal is believed to be worth $9 million with $4 million guaranteed. With incentives, the deal can reach $11.25 million.

Jean Francois was cut by the Colts on Monday. In 2014, Jean Francois totaled 28 tackles and three sacks.

Logan Paulsen
News
Paulsen is signing a one-year contract to remain with the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Caplin reports.

Paulsen has spent his entire six-year career with the Redskins, but missed all of last season after having toe surgery in August. A backup tight end, Paulsen will hope for a healthy 2016 campaign, but his fantasy stock is minuscule at best.

Nick Sundberg
News
The Redskins released safety Jordan Pugh and signed defensive back Trenton Robinson, reports 106.7 The Fan. Washington also placed long snapper Nick Sundberg and linebacker Bryan Kehl on IR with knee injuries.

Long snapper Kyle Nelson was signed to replace Sundberg, and linebacker Josh Hull was added to replace Kehl.

Niles Paul
News
Paul is treading a fine line as he recovers from a dislocated left ankle, combining weight work and cardio at Washington's facility, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the team's official site reports.

Paul entered training camp last summer as the No. 1 tight end in Washington, only to sustain a season-ending ankle injury in the first preseason game. The stars were aligned for Jordan Reed's breakout campaign following Logan Paulsen's (toe) placement on injured reserve within a week of Paul's malady. Further straining his standing within the TE corps was the recent acquisition of Vernon Davis, but Paul's ability to log snaps at an open position (fullback) should help him find a place in the offense next season.

Marcel Jensen
News
Jensen agreed to a contract with the Redskins on Tuesday.

Jensen was plucked off the Bills' practice squad and will take the roster spot of wide receiver Andre Roberts, who was placed on injured reserve. Jensen will be the fourth tight end on the Bills' roster, and he figures to play sparingly behind primary tight end Jordan Reed.

Derek Carrier
News
Carrier (knee) probably won't be ready for the start of training camp, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Traded from San Francisco to Washington in exchange for a fifth-round pick before the 2015 season, Carrier caught 17 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown on 22 targets, working as either the No. 2 or 3 tight end. He then tore his ACL and MCL in mid-December, putting his 2016 availability into serious question. Even if he makes it back at some point in camp, Carrier will have to fight for a roster spot, as Washington also has Vernon Davis, Niles Paul (knee) and Logan Paulsen (toe) on the depth chart behind Jordan Reed.

Injury
Knee - PUP. Probable for start of season
Morgan Moses
News
Redskins tackle Morgan Moses has sustained a Lisfranc injury that will require surgery, according to the Washington Times.

Moses did not play Sunday against St. Louis and is out for the season.

Ryan Grant
News
Grant caught all three of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

The second-year wideout made the most of his usage on the day, finishing third on the team in receiving and scoring the first of three second-half Redskins touchdowns in what was an enthralling comeback effort. Despite Sunday's results, Grant is unlikely to assume a large role in the passing game any time soon, with Jordan Reed back in action and DeSean Jackson set to return. Washington will go on bye next week before a Nov. 8 matchup with the Patriots.

Kendall Fuller
News
Fuller (knee) will be under consideration for the Redskins' nickelback role after returning from microfracture surgery, The Washington Post reports.

Fuller dropped into the third round of this year's draft because of the knee injury he suffered last year in college, but had been given first-round grades by several teams had he owned a clean bill of health. Fortunately, he participated in minicamp last month without setbacks, and declared himself healthy afterword. Fuller is fully capable of playing on the outside, but with Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland locking down the top corner jobs, Fuller will be tasked to handle nickleback duties his rookie year. However, he will still have to earn the job in training camp.

Pierre Garcon
News
Garcon caught five of eight targets for 70 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Garcon caught at least five passes for the fourth time in six games, dating back to Week 13 of the regular season. For the year, Garcon tied a career high in touchdowns with six and was a major part of Washington's pass-happy end to the season. Garcon found the end zone in each of Washington's final three regular season games and, if Kirk Cousins and the Washington passing attack continues on that trajectory in 2016, Garcon should be a coveted No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy option in 2016.

The Redskins have given the thumbs-down to defensive lineman Chris Baker (chest) and tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) for the Sunday game in San Francisco. Offensive linemen Trent Williams (knee/ankle) and Shawn Lauvao (concussion) are questionable.
Will Blackmon
News
Blackmon has agreed to a two-year deal with the Redskins, The Washington Post reports.

Blackmon joined the Redskins as a veteran depth signing ahead of last season, but surpassed expectations by compiling a career-best 49 tackles and two interceptions over the course of the campaign. At 31 years old, Blackmon now finds himself as one of Washington's top cornerbacks heading into the upcoming season, when he'll hope to build on his 2015 success.

Perry Riley
News
Riley (foot) has been activated from the Redskins' PUP list ahead of Friday's practice.

Riley missed the final six games of last season due to a foot injury that required surgery, causing him to start training camp on the sidelines. However, now that he's healed enough, the veteran linebacker will take the practice field Friday. Entering the last year of his current contract, Riley will compete for reps at inside linebacker with Will Compton and Mason Foster.

Chris Thompson
News
Thompson, who has signed his exclusive rights tender with Washington, could experience an expanded role in 2016 following the departure of Alfred Morris to the Cowboys.

Bit by the injury bug throughout his first three seasons, Thompson finally made his presence felt on the field in 2015, totaling 35 carries for 216 yards, 35 receptions (on 48 targets) for 240 yards, and two touchdown grabs in 13 games. However, he required surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Jan. 27, which is poised to impact his availability throughout the offseason program. Although he may lack for reps in May and June, Thompson is expected to serve as a change-of-pace option to Matt Jones at the start of training camp, assuming no more additions to the backfield.

Kirk Cousins
News
Cousins and the Redskins will not reach agreement on a long-term extension ahead of Friday's deadline, Yahoo! reports.

Cousins' representative and the Redskins have long been far apart on contract terms, so it's of little surprise that Cousins will not going into the upcoming campaign with a new multi-year deal. Instead, Cousins will play under Washington's $19.953 million franchise tag, making him the first quarterback in 11 years to play under such designation. After a breakout 2015 season, Cousins will hope a similarly strong 2016 results in a huge payday next offseason, and with a bevy of weapons surrounding him, Cousins has to like his chances.

Trent Murphy

The Redskins announced they placed linebacker Trent Murphy on injured reserve Tuesday. 

The team also signed offensive lineman Rishaw Johnson from the Giants’ practice squad to the Redskins’ 53-man roster. The Redskins also signed free-agent wide receiver Colin Lockett to the practice squad.

Will Compton
News
Compton will likely compete with Mason Foster for a starting job at inside linebacker alongside Perry Riley, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Compton had 91 tackles (51 solo), a sack and a fumble recovery in 16 games (nine starts) last season, but he wasn't a reliable IDP option at any point during the year. With Perry Riley seemingly locked in as one of the starters, Compton will have to battle Mason Foster for the other starting gig. Riley is easily the preferred IDP of the bunch.

David Bruton
News
Washington and Bruton agreed to a contract Monday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

The veteran safety primarily served on special teams during his seven-year stint with the Broncos, but eight starts litter his 104 career games. Last season, he received three nods in 13 appearances before suffering a season-ending broken right fibula in Week 15, finishing with 49 tackles (37 solo), two interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one sack. Although he missed Denver's run to Super Bowl glory, he'll have the opportunity to lock down the first regular starting gig as a professional with Washington.

Stephen Paea
News
The Redskins have agreed to a four-year deal with defensive tackle Stephen Paea, NFL.com reports.

Paea is slated to make more than $5 million per year as part of the deal. He said Monday he was set to join the Redskins after recording a career-high six sacks with the Bears in 2014.

Ty Nsekhe
News
The Redskins released 13 players Monday, according to The Baltimore Sun.

The players included Ricky Sapp, Austin Spitler, Jerry Rice Jr, Thomas Wolfe, Kenny Okoro, Ty Nsekhe, Gabe Miller, Rishaw Johnson, Kenneth Horsley, Isaako Aaitui, Steve Beauharnais, Braylon Bell and Edawn Coughman.

Spencer Long
News
Second-year guard Spencer Long is being slated as the Redskins' starting right guard this season, and as he prepares for the task, he notes there's a "night and day" difference in the way he feels from his rookie campaign, per ESPN.com. 

Long played in just five games as a rookie, but the former college walk-on has applied that mentality to his work during OTAs, and his experience, however brief, has made a big difference. 

"It's night and day different than as a rookie," Long said. "Your body is used to the speed, the tempo. You already have a jump on the mental game, you know how to study, you know how to prepare. It's such a smoother transition coming into this year."

Nate Sudfeld
News
The Redskins selected Sudfeld in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 187th overall.

Sudfeld (6-foot-6, 234 pounds) is a big quarterback who was highly successful at Indiana, throwing for 7,879 yards (8.0 YPA), 61 touchdowns and 20 interceptions in 38 games. The NFL normally swoons over big, experienced quarterbacks like Sudfeld -- it's hard to see why he should go three rounds later than Sean Mannion did, for instance -- so this looks like a nice project pick for Washington.

Junior Galette
News
Galette has suffered a torn Achilles and is expected to miss the upcoming season, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports.

Galette tore his Achilles toward the end of training camp last year and it unfortunately appears he's suffered the same injury ahead of camp this year. While it's a crushing blow to the 28-year-old regardless, Galette injured his other Achilles this time around, The Washington Post reports. If there's a silver lining, it's that the Redskins are deep at outside linebacker, with Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith, Trent Murphy and rookie Su'a Cravens in tow, but having Galette available would have still been a welcomed boost going into this year.

Vernon Davis
News
Davis' one-year deal with Washington reportedly carries a base salary of $2.38 million, CSN Mid Atlantic reports.

Moreover, $1.1 million of Davis' deal is guaranteed, which hints that the veteran tight end is virtually assured a roster spot with the team. That said, the 32-year-old Davis remains behind productive returnee Jordan Reed in the team's TE pecking order, though the report speculates that Davis could play "in excess of 25 snaps per game" when both players are available. In any case, after seeing Davis' fantasy value dip over the last two seasons, his chances of a bounce-back campaign appear limited so long as Reed (who caught 87 passes in 14 games last season) can stay on the field.

Dustin Hopkins

Hopkins made all four field goals and all five extra points in Sunday's win against the Saints.

Hopkins has made 16 of 17 field goals and all 19 extra points this season. His only miss coming on a 50+ yarder.

Kedric Golston
News
Golston re-signed with the Redskins on a one-year, $1.005 million deal Wednesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

The veteran defensive lineman appeared in 15 games last season and will again provide depth up front for the Redskins in 2016. He may not step into a starting role, but with Jason Hatcher and Terrance Knighton no longer on the team, Golston could find himself in a slightly more prominent role this year especially if Washington is not aggressive in addressing their front in free agency and the draft.
