  • Redskins' Ereck Flowers: Lands in Washington

    Flowers signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Redskins on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Selected at No. 9 overall in the 2015 draft, Flowers was waived by the Giants last season before briefly landing in Jacksonville. He'll now rejoin former Giants' teammate Landon Collins in Washington, and most likely serve a reserve role 2019.

  • Redskins' Paul Richardson: Left atop depth chart

    Richardson (shoulder) is one of the leaders of a Washington wideout group that lost Jamison Crowder to the Jets and Maurice Harris to the Patriots in the opening days of free agency, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    The Redskins haven't signed any replacements, but they still have time to do some discount shopping and likely will look at wide receivers early in the upcoming draft. With Colt McCoy and Case Keenum set to compete for the starting job, there's also a good argument for using one of those early picks on a quarterback. Richardson is more than five months removed from season-ending shoulder surgery, with the estimated timeline (6-to-8 months) putting him on track to be ready for the start of training camp. The team context in Washington may not be ideal for piling up yards and touchdowns, but it at least sets up Richardson as a locked-in starter for the second season of a five-year, $40 million contract. The rest of the team's wideout depth chart is a mixture of washed up (Brian Quick), disappointing (Josh Doctson, Jehu Chesson) and unproven (Trey Quinn, Cam Sims, Robert Davis, Darvin Kidsy, Tre McBride). Richardson is the only one with a recent track record as a competent starter.

  • Redskins' Colt McCoy: Set to compete with Keenum

    McCoy will compete with Case Keenum for the starting quarterback job, Adam Dreyfuss of the team's official website reports.

    It also is possible Washington adds a young quarterback to the mix, seeing as both Keenum and McCoy are in their early 30s and entering the final seasons of their respective contracts. The team officially hasn't ruled out Alex Smith (leg), but it seems like a long shot that he'd be ready to play any sooner than 2020. With Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice (knee) and Chris Thompson all set to return in the backfield, coach Jay Gruden presumably hopes to build his offense around the running game, though it isn't clear his defense is good enough to keep the plan on track. Even so, it's hard to imagine a scenario in which the team's starting quarterback is a valuable asset in standard fantasy leagues. As of mid-March, the depth chart at wide receiver is led by Paul Richardson (shoulder), Josh Doctson and Trey Quinn (ankle).

  • Redskins' Brian Quick: Staying in Washington

    Quick re-signed with Washington on Monday, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.

    Quick made 17 appearances for Washington over the past two seasons, catching nine passes for 94 yards while playing just 158 snaps on offense and 128 on special teams. He'll need to fight for a spot on the 53-man roster ahead of his age-30 season in 2019. The 33rd overall pick from the 2012 draft hasn't done anything to warrant fantasy ownership since the first half of the 2016 campaign.

  • Redskins' Chris Thompson: Glad Peterson is staying with team

    Thompson is pleased with his team's decision to re-sign fellow running back Adrian Peterson, Zach Brook of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Peterson figures to impact Derrius Guice (knee) more so than Thompson, considering the latter gets most of his playing time on passing downs. Of course, it's still another body that demands snaps in the backfield, and the Washington offense probably won't have a ton of yards and touchdowns to go around. The team did at least get some security under center with the trade for Case Keenum, whose shortcomings as a passer likely will impact the wide receivers rather than the running backs or tight ends. Thompson thus stands a decent chance to regain his 2016 level of production, but the circumstances don't point toward a repeat of his breakout 2017 campaign (80.4 scrimmage yards, 0.6 touchdowns per game). It's also worth noting that the 28-year-old has played more than 13 games just once in his six NFL seasons.

  • Redskins' Derrius Guice: Happy to have Peterson back

    Guice (knee) and Chris Thompson have expressed satisfaction with the Redskins' re-signing of fellow running back Adrian Peterson, Zach Brook of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Peterson initially signed in mid-August after Guice suffered a torn ACL in the preseason opener, ultimately finishing the season with 1,250 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns as a 16-game starter. Meanwhile, the rookie second-round pick suffered a major setback early in his recovery, requiring three additional procedures and a seven-week course of antibiotics to treat a post-surgery infection. Guice has made up for lost time since the end of the season, with a report from mid-February suggesting he's regained his upper body strength and resumed straight-line sprinting. Assuming he's ready for training camp, Guice will compete with Peterson for carries while Thompson presumably handles most of the passing-down work. The crowded backfield is far from ideal for fantasy purposes, but each of the three players has enough talent to provide considerable value if he finds his way to a stable workload. Given his age, draft pedigree and potential versatility, Guice has the highest ceiling of the bunch.

  • Redskins' Trey Quinn: Could earn regular slot work

    Quinn (ankle) has an opportunity to earns snaps in the slot after former teammate Jamison Crowder joined the Jets, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports.

    Best known as Mr. Irrelevant from last year's draft, Quinn earned a spot on the Week 1 roster as a punt returner and reserve wide receiver. Ankle issues limited him to three appearances, highlighted by a two-week stretch in November with nine catches for 75 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets while filling in for an injured Crowder as the team's starting slot receiver. Quinn now has a good chance to take over the role on a full-time basis, though it's possible the outlook changes if Washington adds more talent to a weak receiving corps this offseason. The 23-year-old caught 114 passes his final collegiate season at SMU, and he has good size (6-foot, 203 pounds) and adequate speed (4.55 40) for a slot specialist. Quinn was placed on injured reserve in early December and should have plenty of time to make a full recovery before the start of the offseason program in mid-April.

  • Redskins' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: Lacing up cleats again

    Rodgers-Cromartie signed a contract with the Redskins on Friday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

    Rodgers-Cromartie appeared in seven games with the Raiders last season before announcing his retirement, but has decided to return to the NFL after a brief hiatus. The two-time Pro Bowler will reunite with Landon Collins in Washington's secondary, whom he played with from 2015-17 with the Giants. In his 11-year career, Rodgers-Cromartie has accumulated 451 tackles, 30 interceptions and seven forced fumbles.
