  • Daily Slop: Months after major leg injury, Reuben Foster regains feeling in toes; Scott Turner ‘a big fan’ of Dwayne Haskins
    by Philip Hughes on January 20, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty Images A collection of Redskins articles from around the web Scott Turner won the Redskins offensive coordinator job over Kevin O’Connell, per source Some Redskins fans have a bad habit of assuming the worst. That maybe Turner got the job because O’Connell passed on it. That’s not the case, per multiple sources. Report: Months after major leg injury, Reuben Foster regains feeling in toes “He’s regaining feeling and power,” Kawa said. “It shows the nerve is firing. When he moves his leg upward, he can feel around the ankle and the top part of the foot. That’s a new thing. The next 60 days are going to be big as far as getting back to normal.” If Luke Kuechly wants to coach, would Ron Rivera hire him for the Redskins? With the 2nd Pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins Select... The Redskins have the 2nd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft...what will they do with it? DeAngelo Hall defends cornerback Josh Norman, but believes Redskins should move on “He does compete, he’s a competitor. And if I have a football player on my roster who’s a competitor, who wants to be out there, who fights hard and plays hard, I’m [going to] find a way to put him in position to make plays,” Hall said. “I think we could’ve done a much, much better job of putting Josh in position to make plays.” Scott Turner ‘a big fan’ of Dwayne Haskins, expects to see commitment “You’ve got to be the most committed guy in the building,” said Turner, who spent the past two seasons as Carolina’s quarterbacks coach. “Your teammates have to see that, the coaches have to see that because that is how you develop trust and that is how you develop leadership.” Jack Del Rio on Redskins defense: ‘Potential really doesn’t matter’ “Countless examples” of players not in the proper position before the snap. Players looking around and talking, as if asking each other what was going on. A lack of urgency. “There was an issue there,” Del Rio said.

  • Washington Redskins 2020 Draft Profiles: Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue
    by jamesfaris on January 20, 2020 at 3:30 pm

    John Jones-USA TODAY Sports Hogs Haven takes a look at prospects heading into the 2020 NFL Draft Brycen Hopkins Tight End Height: 6’5” Weight: 245 lbs. Purdue Strengths: Brycen Hopkins emerged as one of the best tight ends in the nation this season thanks to his big body and frame, impressive speed for his position and excellent ball skills. Route running is one of his strengths, which should make him a starting-caliber player from Day 1 in the NFL. He posted a solid statline in his senior season of 61 catches for 830 yards and seven touchdowns. Click here to see all Hogs Haven 2020 Draft Profiles Weaknesses: While Hopkins can undoubtedly succeed as a pass catcher, his ceiling in the NFL may be determined by how well he can develop as a blocker. He’s not overly physical, but he won’t get pushed around. Still, if he can become even tougher and play in the trenches, he can be one of the most valuable pieces on an offense. Why he may fit with Washington: While it’s not the most important position in football, tight end is clearly one of the largest holes on Washington’s roster. Case in point: Jeremy Sprinkle, who finished with 26 receptions for 241 yards and one touchdown on the year, was the Redskins’ best tight end, though he was 38th in the league. Generally, teams draft for value and the best player available — not just to fill needs — but for the right price, Hopkins would be an excellent addition in Washington. Bottom Line: Brycen Hopkins is a highly athletic tight end who runs great routes and has the tools to be one of the better players at his position, especially if he can become a better blocker, meaning he’s well worth a look for the tight-end needy Redskins. Projected Round: 2nd/3rd

  • Redskins 2020 Mock Offseason - Trades, Trades and More Trades
    by Mark Tyler on January 20, 2020 at 2:59 pm

    Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The only meaningful football game we have left in the 2019 season is the Super Bowl in two weeks. Redskins faithful have been thinking/debating/arguing about the 2020 NFL offseason for months now. The intensity heated up when we secured the number two overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and got even hotter when the season ended and Bruce Allen was fired, Ron Rivera hired and Kyle Smith promoted. The fun now centers around who will win the Super Bowl, followed by what will the Redskins do this offseason to improve their team. Some recent news on Reuben Foster’s rehabilitation progress cast a gray cloud over the linebacker’s future for the 2020 season, as he recovers from a torn knee, which also included significant nerve damage. This could impact the Redskins’ offseason plans a bit. Below is my 2020 offseason plan, including notable cuts, trades, free agent signings and a 2020 mock draft. I followed that up with a potential 2020 two-deep depth chart just for fun. 2020 Offseason: Notable cuts and cap savings: Josh Norman - $12.5M Jordan Reed - $8.5M Paul Richardson - $2.3M Trades: Redskins trade OT Trent Williams to the Browns for 2020 2nd round pick -Trent Williams cap savings - $12.5M Redskins trade 2020 2nd round pick to the Buccaneers for TE O.J. Howard Re-sign: Brandon Scherff - 4 years/$56M Ereck Flowers - 3 years/$25M 2020 Free Agency(notable signings): James Bradberry CB(27) 3 years/$21M Joe Schobert LB(26) 2 years/$15M Robbie Anderson WR(27) 1 year/$9.5M Vic Beasley EDGE(28) 1 year/$8M 2020 NFL Draft: Round 1(pick #2): TRADE Redskins trade pick number 2 overall to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for picks 5(Rd1), 26(Rd1) and 39(Rd2). Round 1(Pick 5 From Miami): Isaiah Simmons OLB/S Clemson(6’4” 230) Round 1(Pick 26 From Miami): Mekhi Becton OT Louisville(6’7” 335) Round 2(Pick 39 From Miami): Thaddeus Moss TE LSU(6’3” 250) Round 2(From Cleveland): Traded to Tampa Bay for TE O.J.

You've taken San Francisco from the bottom to the top. Not bad for a guy who only got to be an coordinator because of his last name, right?— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 20, 2020 Thats not the point. Nobody said he didn't benefit from his dad. The point was he wad vilified and made a target for it and didn't get credit for how good he was because of a silly narative that he was unqualified.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 20, 2020 How is that an issue. Sons of butchers know how to cut and prep meat better then sons who didn't. That's kinda how life works. Cant stop a kid from learning their fathers profession. We live in a weird time man— Just here for Kings chat (@TruKingsFan) January 20, 2020 Been digging into the “Air Coryell” offense the #Redskins plan on running in 2020.One thing to consider is the TE position. Kellen Winslow seemed to be the X-factor for this super offense.Could explain Scott Turner’s comments on needing a TE in free agency? Hooper? Henry?— (@bentleyhaskins) January 18, 2020 No. They’re still figuring out what they want/need to do with their own guys first.— John Keim (@john_keim) January 19, 2020 The explosiveness of Chase Young is a sight to see. Look at the ground he covers. He’s nearly by the OT by his second step. All he has to do is beat the hands.— Cover 1 (@Cover_1_) January 18, 2020 Take a chance, because you never know how perfect something can turn out— Isaiah Simmons (@isaiahsimmons25) January 18, 2020 Giants fans— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) January 18, 2020 Isaiah Simmons had 104 tackles, 16.5 for a loss, 8 sacks, 3 INT's, 8 passes defended, 2 FF, 1 FR and can play 5 different positions on defense. 21 years old— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) January 19, 2020 But how can you possibly turn down an offer of 4 first round picks!!

Gruden recently told @RapSheet he’s “itching to do something” and would “like to have an office to go to.” Perhaps it’ll be in Jacksonville.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) January 19, 2020 Did you know that Raheem Mostert was on the Eagles, Dolphins, Ravens, Browns, Jets and Bears and never got a single carry until he went to his seventh team, the 49ers?— Michael David Smith (@MichaelDavSmith) January 20, 2020 The 49ers ...• Paid Jerick McKinnon, McKinnon had awful injury luck.• Offered Le'Veon Bell 8 figures on a 1-year deal.• Just lost Tevin Coleman, who's making $5 million.• Are doing OK with Raheem Mostert.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 20, 2020 The Niners did not throw the ball in the third quarter.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 20, 2020 An hour and a half since Jimmy G threw a pass.Incredible.— Kimberley A.
