  • Football Team's Dwayne Haskins: Doing well with new playbook

    Kyle Allen holds a clear advantage in scheme and playbook familiarity, but Washington coach Ron Rivera believes Haskins isn't too far behind in either respect, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Allen spent the past two seasons in Carolina working with Rivera and quarterbacks coach Scott Turner, who now serves as offensive coordinator in Washington. The unusual circumstances of 2020 present Haskins with the added challenge of a shortened offseason and no preseason games, but he said the reads and concepts in Turner's offense are the same as what he learned from Jay Gruden last year, only with simpler terminology now that the team isn't using a West Coast system. Rivera hinted at a potential competition for the starting job back in March, so Washington beat reporters are sure to keep a close eye on the division of reps between Haskins and Allen once the team starts practicing in earnest later this month. Rivera did say he expects Haskins to be the starter, and the 23-year-old's status as a recent first-round pick should tilt any competition in his favor if the team thinks it's a close call.

  • Football Team's Josh Harvey-Clemons: Opts out for 2020

    Harvey-Clemons has elected to sit out the 2020 season, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    Harvey-Clemons' absence will leave Washington down some depth at the linebacker position, though it's worth noting that he was strictly limited to special-teams work last season. He'll aim to retake the field in 2021.

  • Football Team's Dontrelle Inman: Joining Washington

    Inman is signing with the Washington Football Team, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    It's the best possible outcome for a free-agent wideout in terms of the opportunity to earn playing time. Washington should have open competition behind top dog Terry McLaurin, with Steven Sims and Trey Quinn battling for slot snaps while Inman jockeys with the likes of Antonio Gandy-Golden and Cam Sims for outside work. There has been some mention of Sims potentially lining up outside, but this still profiles as a favorable situation for the 31-year-old Inman, who caught 12 passes for 181 yards in seven appearances for the Colts and Chargers last year. He had his best season back in 2016, when he put up a 58-810-4 receiving line for an injury-plagued Chargers squad.

  • Football Team's Alex Smith: Looks good during workouts

    Smith (leg) recently impressed during four straight days of on-field workouts with Washington's training staff, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Smith was medically cleared by Washington's surgical staff early last week, but his subsequent placement on the PUP list meant he can't practice. No matter, he clearly has been able to get in some on-field work as he continues his recovery from a gruesome leg injury and ensuing bouts with infection. There's no telling when (or if) Smith will make it all the way back, but he seems to be putting himself in a position to return to the regular-season roster. In the meantime, quarterback will be manned by some combination of 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins and Kyle Allen in the nation's capital.

  • Football Team's Ryan Lewis: Lands in nation's capital

    Washington claimed Lewis (hamstring) off waivers Thursday.

    Cut by the Dolphins one day earlier, Lewis will compete for a depth role at cornerback in Washington. He's put the hamstring injury -- one that forced him to injured reserve back in December -- behind him.

  • Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Learning multiple positions

    Gibson has been sitting in on running back meetings, but he's also doing technical work as a wide receiver, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

    Coach Ron Rivera said the rookie third-round pick will first be evaluated as a running back, in addition to potentially handling return work on special teams. However, the Washington Football Team has a greater need for talent at wide receiver, especially after Kelvin Harmon tore an ACL over the summer. It's also possible Gibson get his own unique role, as opposed to being a fill-in option at multiple positions. Running backs coach Randy Jordan mentioned Gibson learning the "F" receiver spot, which essentially would be the slot role in offensive coordinator Scott Turner's scheme, per Mark Bullock of The Athletic. Steven Sims and Trey Quinn are the other candidates for slot work, while the backfield contains Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson, J.D. McKissic, Bryce Love and Peyton Barber.
