Taylor, a first-rounder out of Baylor in 2011, spent the summer with the Broncos but couldn't stay healthy. The Redskins then hosted him for a tryout in Week 6 but didn't extend a contract offer. However, they evidently saw enough in Taylor to bring him back on a future contract and will get to see what he has left to offer throughout the offseason.
Smith will be available as expected after logging a full practice on Friday, and he's expected to start at outside linebacker across from Ryan Kerrigan.
Breeland went down during Week 16 against the Bears with an ankle issue, but he avoided any serious issues and looks ready for Sunday's tilt versus the Giants. He figures to draw the start at cornerback opposite Josh Norman with playoff implications on the line.
Crowder was primarily used out of the slot last season as Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson combined to miss only one game and both drew triple-digit targets (Crowder wasn't far behind with 97). Although he still figures to man the slot in three-wide formations, Crowder may also have a regular job out wide in two-receiver sets, potentially playing ahead of 2016 first-round selection Josh Doctson. Such a role takes on added importance given how well No. 2 tight end Vernon Davis played last season, as the Redskins likely will use a lot of two-TE formations if Davis and Jordan Reed both stay healthy. At 5-foot-8, 182 pounds, Crowder has the physical profile of a pure slot specialist, but last year's marks of 12.6 yards per catch, 8.7 per target and seven touchdowns were more in line with what's expected of an outside receiver, with his excellent work after the catch playing a big part in that production. He has a clear path to improving upon last season's target total and offensive snap percentage (73.7), though his efficiency quite possibly could suffer if a higher portion of his targets were to occur near the sidelines.
Although he was glad to hear the Redskins intend to retain their quarterback, Pryor stopped shy of saying that his new team made him any kind of promise. All signs point to Cousins playing at least one more year in Washington, but it's still possible the team would consider dealing him if it's blown away by a trade offer. Such a development would be bad news for Pryor, who is set to join slot standout Jamison Crowder and 2015 first-round selection Josh Doctson (Achilles) in a new-look, high-upside Washington receiving corps that lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency. Pryor is the early favorite to serve as the new No. 1 wideout, although he should have plenty of competition for targets in an offense that also features the potent tight end duo of Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis. On the injury front, it appears Pryor, Doctson and Reed will all be available for the start of OTAs in mid-to-late April. Pryor surprisingly opted for a one-year, $8 million contract, betting on himself to earn his way to a big multi-year deal next offseason.
Nicholson is on the mend from offseason shoulder surgery. Though he'll be under some restrictions when camp opens, it's at least good news he avoided the PUP list.
Wolff hasn't played in a game since he tore his ACL in November of 2014. The safety didn't play this past year but will hope to secure a spot, likely at the bottom of the depth chart, in Washington for the 2017 season.
Foster was all over the field on Sunday, having his best performance of an already highly impressive season. In his second year with the Redskins, Foster led the team with 124 tackles, which is also a career-best for the linebacker. He is under contract through the 2018 season and will aim to continue his success next year as a leader of the Washington defense.
With Robert Kelley and Chris Thompson returning and Samaje Perine drafted in the fourth round, Jones doesn't believe he is in the team's plans for this season and thus opted to skip the voluntary offseason program. He's likely still hoping to be traded or released this summer, but he's present for the start of mandatory minicamp, as the Redskins could fine him if he didn't show up. Jones may be as low or fifth or sixth on the depth chart, possibly slotting in behind Keith Marshall and Mack Brown in addition to Kelley, Thompson and Perine.
Norman had his best performance of the season, picking off Matt Barkley two times, adding to the quarterback's five total on the day. He now has 62 tackles, 18 pass deflections, and three interceptions on the season, mirroring his totals from last year's breakout season with the Panthers.
Toler replaced Quinton Dunbar after the latter suffered a concussion in the third quarter. Toler then suffered a concussion himself, leaving Kendall Fuller to take over as the team's third cornerback. If Toler or Dunbar is unable to play this Saturday against the Bears, Fuller will likely continue to see an increased role.
With Matt Jones likely to be traded or released and Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson all locks to make the team, Marshall and Mack Brown will have to compete for a roster spot that may not exist. Marshall was selected in the seventh round of last year's draft and spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve with an elbow injury, but his top-notch athleticism -- he ran a 4.31 40-yard dash at 219 pounds -- makes him an interesting long-term project to keep on the practice squad. While lacking in athletic upside, Brown likely will enter training camp ahead of Marshall on the depth chart, after playing nine games last season and ripping off a 61-yard touchdown on one of his eight carries.
McClain's deal will draw him out of Dallas and reportedly will be worth more than $21 million over the course of its four years. The defensive tackle led the Cowboys' defensive line in tackles with 41 in 2016, and also added 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and eight quarterback pressures. He should provide a significant boost for a Redskins' front seven that surrendered 119.8 rushing yards per game last season, good for 24th in the league.
In 2016, Reed tended to the fifth known concussion of his football career and an AC joint separation in his left shoulder, resulting in four absences. That number fell within the range of DNPs (2-to-7) in each of his four professional seasons, and an ailing toe is now wiping away at least the initial practices of training camp. Although the Redskins are making a precautionary decision, Reed must receive clearance in order to take the practice field.
Simon played in nine games for Arizona last season, though he totaled just six tackles on the season as primarily a special teams player. He'll look to catch on as a reserve with another team in 2017.
In his rookie season, Cravens totaled 34 tackles, five pass deflections, one sack, and one interception in 11 games at linebacker. The 21-year-old (6'1, 222-pounds) will now make the move to safety in his second season, a role he gained experience in 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 more likely than not that Cravens will head into the season as a starting safety. 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.
A 2014 sixth-round selection, Hazel was mostly a gameday inactive through his first two years in the league. With Branden Shippen also waived Saturday, it appears Griff Whalen and/or Rashawn Scott will fill out the No. 5/6 spots on the Miami depth chart at wide receiver.
Hall is still working his way back from a torn ACL he sustained last September, so it's not surprising that he'll remain limited when camp begins. In recognition of his advancing age and troublesome injury history, Hall agreed to restructure his contract to remain with the Redskins in 2017, but it remains to be seen how effectively he'll be able to play coming off a major setback. The Redskins likely have him pegged for a backup role at free safety after signing D.J. Swearinger to a three-year deal in March.
Whitner strained his quad in last week's game against Chicago and was evaluated during the week. The Redskins can likely secure a playoff spot with a win over the Giants on Sunday but they'll need to rely on Duke Ihenacho and David Bruton for safety help. Whitner will finish with 66 tackles and a forced fumble in 11 games played this year.
Swearinger signed a three-year deal with the Redskins this offseason. Washington has plenty of depth at safety, but with DeAngelo Hall coming off ACL surgery, it appears it will be Swearinger's job to lose. The 25-year-old is expected to line up alongside Su'a Cravens in the starting lineup, as the second-year man transitions from linebacker to strong safety this offseason.
After tearing his ACL in December, it's unclear if Bates will be fully recovered by the time the regular season begins, so his placement on the PUP list doesn't come as much of a surprise. Since Bates is only a depth linebacker without much of a long-term investment from the Redskins, it wouldn't be surprising if he was a roster casualty if he doesn't demonstrate significant progress on the health front before camp concludes.
The minor surgery was used in order to clean up "loose bodies" in his left elbow. As a result, the linebacker will opt out of his Pro Bowl bid, which he earned after recording 33 tackles and 11 tackles in 16 games this season. Kerrigan originally injured his elbow back in mid-December, but played through the aliment for a handful of games before breaking his finger in Week 17's loss to the Giants. Barring any setbacks, the veteran should be ready for offseason team activities.
A 2011 fifth-round selection, Carter has bounced around the league as a special teams contributor and depth linebacker, recording 26 tackles in 62 regular-season games. He'll likely be buried on the defensive depth chart in Washington, with special teams once again representing his best chance to contribute.
Moreau is still in recovery from March surgery to repair a torn pectoral. The fact he avoided the PUP list suggests he could be close to returning to full strength.
After signing a one-year deal with the Redskins in the spring of 2016, Hood appeared in all 16 games this past season, starting in 14 and cranking out 33 tackles and three passes defensed. With the release of incumbent starter Ricky Jean-Francois, he could be in the mix for starting duties ahead of the 2017 campaign.
It was a quiet night for the No. 2 quarterback as he managed the second half of Friday's win. McCoy has had a decent preseason, assuring Washington they're in good hands if anything happens to starter Kirk Cousins. McCoy's big day will come next week against the Buccaneers as he will likely start under center after head coach Jay Gruden confirmed all starters will rest.
Although head coach Jay Gruden made certain that Doctson had not suffered any sort of setback in his return from a torn Achilles, the receiver was nonetheless barred from taking part in 11-on-11 work during the onset of OTAs for precautionary reasons. However, it appears the Redskins have since taken the training wheels off their 2016 first-round pick, so expect Doctson to open this week's minicamp without any physical restrictions.
Jenkins was released by the Redskins just two weeks ago, but due to Washington's abysmal performance on the defensive line Monday, the team will now rely on Jenkins to help turn things around. The 13-year vet has more experience than any current member of the Washington front seven. Last season, Jenkins tallied three sacks and 26 combined tackles across all 16 games for the Giants.
Perine, who was drafted in the fourth round this spring after finishing his college career as Oklahoma's all-time leading rusher, should have ample opportunity during camp to make a run at unseating Kelley for the top spot on the depth chart. Beyond Perine, none of the remaining backs the Redskins have on hand look like viable challengers to the starting role, as Chris Thompson is more of a pass-catching threat and Matt Jones was wildly disappointing in 2017 and could be on the outs for a roster spot. Fortunately for Perine, if he gets going in a given game, the Redskins are prepared to reward him with more touches, which would inevitably boost his fantasy stock. In the meantime, though, the rookie will aim to gain more familiarity with Washington's offense as camp begins.
Sprinkle (6-foot-5, 252 pounds) is an athletically talented tight end who might have gone as high as the third round if he hadn't been cited for shoplifting shortly before his team's bowl game. With a big wingspan and 4.69 speed, Sprinkle is an interesting dynasty dart given the durability issues of Jordan Reed and Niles Paul.
Paul is four months removed from having surgery to repair a torn labrum and dislocated left shoulder. While he still hasn't been cleared as a precaution, the 27-year-old says he's feeling fully healthy and should be ready for offseason practice sessions. After totaling career highs of 39 catches for 507 yards in 2014, Paul has played merely eight games since then due to injuries.
It wasn't long ago that Allen was universally regarded as a top-five pick, but positional ambiguity and poor athletic testing complicated his projection a bit. A star pass rusher on the edge for Alabama, at this point Allen is built more like a defensive tackle (6-foot-3, 286 pounds), and certainly had the athletic testing of one. His 5.0-second 40, 30-inch vertical, 108-inch broad jump and 7.49-second three-cone are good for a defensive tackle, but not for the end position he primarily played at Alabama. But even if Allen can't play outside in the NFL, he should be a solid tackle for Washington.
Carrier will suit up, but he likely won't be much of a fantasy factor with Jordan Reed (shoulder) returning from a one-week absence. Carrier hasn't received more than a single target in a game this season, and getting noticed will be tough Sunday behind Reed and Vernon Davis on the depth chart.
While he can't match Doctson's size, speed or draft status, the 2014 fifth-round pick has an advantage in terms of familiarity with the Washington offense and route running. Grant's ability to play all three receiver spots serves him well, though the presence of Jamison Crowder means that the Redskins' No. 3 WR primarily will stick outside. The team still hopes last year's first-round selection will beat out Grant, Brian Quick and Maurice Harris in what could shape up as a true battle, after reports from earlier in the offseason essentially handed the job to Doctson.
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.
This is now the third time Phillips has been called up to the Redskins' active roster this season. His addition likely signals that Qunton Dunbar (concussion) won't be cleared in time to play Saturday against the Bears.
Blackmon missed last week's game against the Eagles due to his concussion but after practicing in full Saturday he was expected to play Monday. He's expected to start at safety alongside Duke Ihenacho.
The No. 33 overall pick in the 2012 draft, Quick enjoyed a productive stretch early in the 2014 season but otherwise failed to live up to his draft status during his five-year tenure with the Rams, eventually serving as the No. 3 wideout in a lifeless offense last season. His one-year contract with the Redskins doesn't include much guaranteed money, leaving him to compete with Maurice Harris and Ryan Grant, among others, for the fourth and fifth spots on the depth chart. Quick doesn't have much of a track record playing special teams, which could hurt his bid for a roster spot.
Kelley went from an undrafted rookie to Washington's top tailback by the end of his first season, finishing with a team-high 704 rushing yards and seven total touchdowns. In doing so, Kelley had nearly 250 more yards on the ground than his next closest teammate while averaging a commendable 4.2 yards per carry along the way. Kelley has rightfully earned his place atop the depth chart entering camp, but he'll have to outperform rookie fourth-rounder Semaje Perine during the preseason to lock down the starting role heading into Week 1. Along with entering camp with a clear edge, Kelley should benefit from transforming his body this offseason. Despite having January surgery to clean up his knee, Kelley reportedly dropped from 18 to 13 percent body fat and appeared more muscular in offseason workouts.
With a budding battle between Rob Kelley and rookie Samaje Perine for the top running back spot, Thompson will quietly assume the third-down responsibilities for the Redskins in 2017. Playing on a one-year contract, the veteran will have to prove his value this season, which won't be hard to do if he continues to see increased reps on offense. Thompson is clearly the best pass catcher in the backfield and was productive last season with his reps, averaging 7.1 yards per reception and 5.2 yards per rush. If either Kelley or Perine struggles, look for Washington to rely on Thompson as a security blanket.
With Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine all locked in, Brown and Keith Marshall figure to compete for the No. 4 spot on a team that may only keep three running backs on its final roster. Brown did at least work ahead of Marshall during the offseason program, but the latter makes for a more intriguing developmental project for the practice squad thanks to his rare size/speed combination. Brown may have narrowed the gap by trimming down to six percent body fat in the offseason, but he still profiles as no better than a middling athlete for the position.
Harris caught on with Washington as an undrafted rookie last season, catching eight of 12 targets for 66 yards in 10 games. The team signed Brian Quick in the offseason, but it seems Harris and Ryan Grant may enter training camp ahead of the veteran on the depth chart, possibly even getting a shot to push Josh Doctson for the No. 3 job if the 2016 first-round selection struggles during camp.
Cousins is scheduled to earn nearly $24 million guaranteed this season, which could end up being his last with the Redskins. The signal caller will become a free agent next offseason, and with 9,083 passing yards and 63 touchdowns (54 passing, nine rushing) on his ledger the past two years, he's sure to draw heavy interest around the league. With the leverage to command even more guaranteed money next offseason, Cousins will be betting on himself once again in 2017. Although he's lost his top two receivers from last season, as well as his offensive coordinator, Cousins' motivation ahead of a massive payday makes him a player worth monitoring in both fantasy and real life.
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.
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.
Francis failed to make much, if any, of an impact for the Redskins this season and was released in order to activate offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger off injured reserve.
Lanier has missed the past few weeks due to foot and shin aliments, as the Redskins ultimately decided it would be best to end his season early. The rookie failed to take the field a notable amount this season, so his absence shouldn't have a grave impact on Washington's defensive scheme.
Sudfeld, a sixth-round pick, gets the nod for the Thursday as he looks to impress the coaching staff in the hopes that they will keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. Washington's quarterback situation is set in stone with Kirk Cousins leading the charge and Colt McCoy securing his role as the No. 2 man.
Pascal played college ball at Old Dominion, where he recorded 233 receptions for 3,184 yards and 30 touchdowns in 49 career games. The Redskins needed some help at wide receiver after losing DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency, but they added Terrelle Pryor and are still fairly deep at the position. Pascal will need to have an impressive minicamp and preseason in order to make Washington's regular-season roster as a depth option.
Galette has missed the majority of the past two seasons with Achilles injuries, but finally appears to be healthy entering training camp. He projects to be the Redskins best pass rusher off the edge if his health is not an issue. The 29-year-old recorded 10 sacks and three forced fumbles in his last healthy season for the Saints in 2016.
Brown was one of the best free agent players remaining on the market. He had 149 tackles, including 4.0 sacks, and four passes defensed with the Bills last season. With the Redskins he'll compete with Mason Foster and Will Compton for one of the two starting inside linebacker positions.
Thompson failed to participate in any offseason team activities due to the undisclosed leg injury and will now miss the beginning of training camp as well. While he is still able to attend team meetings and receive treatment, the 25-year-old will have to receive clearance before he can practice with the team again. The injury continues to diminish Thompson's chances of locking down a spot on the 53-man roster, given the level of competition at wideout in Washington.
That statistic, which helps explain his lofty mark of 9.9 yards per target, is made all the more impressive by the fact Davis ranked 26th at the position in targets (59) and 23rd in receptions (44). His excellent work last season helps explain the Redskins' lack of interest in re-signing Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, as the team can always rely on more two-TE formations if Josh Doctson or Terrelle Pryor disappoints. The 33-year-old Davis will enter training camp on the wrong side of fantasy relevance in most formats, but that would change in a hurry if Jordan Reed were to suffer yet another significant injury.
Hopkins missed a 57-yard attempt to close out the first half of the game. On the season, Hopkins went 34-for-42 in field goal attempts and 36-for-39 on extra point attempts. The kicker struggled from distance, as four of his misses came from over 50 yards this year. The 26-year-old is under contract through 2017, so he'll enter the offseason as the incumbent kicker.
Bowen needed to be carted off the practice field and had an air cast placed around his ankle. While the injury isn't believed to be serious, he wasn't provided with a timeline for a return, leaving his availability for training camp very much in question.
Dunbar missed last week's game due to his concussion and has yet to return to practice. If the Redskins make the playoffs Dunbar will have a shot to play in the wildcard round. Greg Toler and Kendall Fuller figure to see added snaps once again with Dunbar sidelined.
Golston, who opened the 2016 season as the Redskins' starting nose tackle but suffered a season-ending hamstring tear in Week 2, was medically cleared from the injury roughly two and a half weeks ago. This meeting with San Francisco marks the first free-agent visit of the offseason for the 33-year-old vet. The 49ers are beginning to construct a fearsome defensive line and Golston would, at the minimum, provide excellent depth and a strong veteran presence.
Evans played with the Redskins early in the season and was resigned as a result of veteran safety Donte Whitner being moved to injured reserve. Look for Evans to serve as a depth safety who could help out on special teams as well.
Anderson will play inside in Washington's 3-4, and he should push for a starting role right away after Su'a Cravens was moved to safety. If he can earn a three-down role, Anderson could make an IDP impact early on in his career. He wasn't a good athletic tester prior to the draft, but Anderson was a disruptive leading contributor on a dominant Alabama defense, posting nine sacks and 19 tackles for loss in 2016.
