You take Tua at 2. No doubt about that... If Haskins turns out to be better than trade Tua. Let them battle it, see who the best man is."— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) February 27, 2020 This is not a blocking TE draft class. They're getting exposed on this sled drill. Adam Trautman an exception. Stephen Sullivan had a good rep too.— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) February 27, 2020 The best thing the #Redskins can do in Free Agency this year is retain 71, 77 and 75.— manny benton (@manny_benton) February 27, 2020 #Redskins coach Ron Rivera says he’s had good talks with Trent Williams but sources tell me and @RapSheet there’s still work to be done on that front, as Williams has communicated to the team he wants a new contract or a trade. pic.twitter.com/SG7EYDmuNR— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 27, 2020 Re: Trent Williams trade: "The Redskins would want a draft-pick package similar to the Texans trade that netted them a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and a second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft for left tackle Duane Brown." - @walterfootball— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) February 27, 2020 I’m told contract year LT Trent Williams has not been given permission to seek a trade, at this time. Williams communicated to the team he still wants a new deal or to be dealt, even after having a constructive meeting w/HC Ron Rivera as Mike Garafolo & Ian Rapoport 1st reported.— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) February 27, 2020 It will be interesting to see how Rivera handles the Trent Williams situation. Adding a Pro Bowl LT improves the team immediately, but he is rarely healthy for an entire season. Is a 10-12 game a season player worth $20M per? RR will have to decide that! #HTTR pic.twitter.com/pyIOF7UHod— Ed Sheahin (@NFLPhotoGuy) February 27, 2020 The Trent Williams situation is way less complicated than we're all making it. He should be traded. He should have been traded in 2019. It is outrageous that Bruce Allen botched that.He now has one year left on his deal and the #Redskins should get what they can for him.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) February 27, 2020 The national media, or at least @ShannonSharpe and @RealSkipBayless on @undisputed (for what that’s worth), are criticizing Coach Ron Rivera for his non-committal comments on Dwayne Haskins, comparing it to Coach McCarthy’s glowing review of Dak Prescott at the #NFLCombine.— Aberdeen Washington (@WashWinsRepeat) February 27, 2020 My other pet peeve is when people say ‘woah’. So many do. It’s wrong— John Keim (@john_keim) February 27, 2020 That’s our QB #HTTR (Repost via @dh_simba7) pic.twitter.com/70AsuDSdSm— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) February 27, 2020 As he should. Whether you add Chase Young or not, Kerrigan was extremely good 16-18. Top 10-15 in the league during that stretch. Pretty fair chance he bounces back. https://t.co/mQQEpWbort— Steve Shoup (@Steveospeak) February 27, 2020 Wow - @LRiddickESPN just said the old #Redskins coaching staff didn’t want Haskins on the team last year.

Andrew Thomas, Isaiah Wilson and Lloyd Cushenberry all named Brown as the best D-Lineman they faced in college.— Trevor Sikkema (@TampaBayTre) February 26, 2020 The coach literally said they will explore Tua.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) February 27, 2020 What Auburn DT Marlon Davidson loves about football: "You can hit a man, just pound him, and the police don't come." pic.twitter.com/U7MGRIp3Uq— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) February 27, 2020 #Auburn DL Marlon Davidson on what he loves most about the game:“What I love most about the game is that I can literally go out there and hit a man consistently, and pound him, and the police won’t come.” pic.twitter.com/EgV9rtIcsL— Trevor Sikkema (@TampaBayTre) February 27, 2020 Derrick Brown played basketball in high school.

The son of hall of fame WR Randy Moss should be healthy in plenty of time for his rookie year.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) February 27, 2020 So far of the “value” tight ends I’m most impressed with Colby Parkinson. He moves so well for 6’7” 250, and tracked the ball well too.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) February 27, 2020 This Tennessee TE is impressing me in the field drills.— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) February 27, 2020 Hunter added some size & w/23 reps of 225 has more than enough strength. Like @MoveTheSticks I thought we’d see much better than 4.75. https://t.co/aZmuhoIs6r— Brock Huard (@BrockHuard) February 27, 2020 Definitely put on a lot of muscle and it cost him in the 40. Was never expecting 4.5 type speed, but he looks faster than this on film https://t.co/VLnp5yW8bS— Connor Rogers (@ConnorJRogers) February 27, 2020 It's crazy to think Henry Ruggs could end up running the most disappointing 4.30 in the history of the NFL Combine. People will be legit disappointed. Let's keep expectations somewhat grounded here. Dude is fast. 40 time doesn't tell us anything we don't already know.— Bryan Perez (@BryanPerezNFL) February 27, 2020 Alex Smith... https://t.co/sybojZVA6C— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) February 27, 2020 Here is how Jon Gruden summed things up about @Raiders QB situation: “We have to continue to improve at that position, and we’re set out to do that. No matter how we do it.”— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) February 27, 2020 Giants named as potential Tom Brady suitor https://t.co/GNbvub6H5X— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) February 27, 2020 The Patriots still have not reached out to Tom Brady. According to a source, “it’s not looking good”— Karen Guregian (@kguregian) February 27, 2020 ESPN’s @JeffDarlington on @GetUpESPN: “I’m now at the point where I would be stunned if Tom Brady went back to New England.”— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 27, 2020 Tom Brady is free for a reason--he negotiated his freedom last summer. Here are some of the teams likely to make a run at the living legend. From earlier on @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/VCpK39lrhf— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) February 27, 2020 Tom Brady is currently operating under the belief that he will enter free agency to play somewhere other than New England next season, a sentiment the quarterback has shared with others, ESPN’s Jeff Darlington is repotting.https://t.co/SuOW4L1U6Q— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 27, 2020 I wonder if it'll be disputed whether Chris Jones is considered a defensive end or defensive tackle. He was a 3-4 end in his first 3 seasons, but a 4-3 tackle last season.OTC currently projects the difference between the two tags at about $3.8M. ($19.3M for DE, $15.5M for DT) https://t.co/s0O1mgavj9— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) February 27, 2020 The #Chiefs have to slash salary. Lots of talk here in Indy they could try to trade some players to at least get some value back. https://t.co/SlQLi7RSSZ— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 27, 2020 Jerry Jones wants Jason Witten back: “I would hope that he would not ever be anything but a Cowboy. I do think he can play. I think he can make a real contribution to the Cowboys.”— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) February 27, 2020 Report: Jets Preparing Big Offer for OT Jack Conklin per @TonyPaulinehttps://t.co/kU5dUix0HZ— Pete Smith (@_PeteSmith_) February 27, 2020 #LSU EDGE K’Laivon Chaisson: “I’m the most valuable player in this draft.

They make the league go.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) February 27, 2020 A primary reason NFL players are expected to ratify the proposed CBA: Nearly 60% of league makes minimum base salaries, which would spike immediately by over 20% and eclipse $1 million for all players by 2029. From term sheet NFLPA sent to agents (in 1000s, by credited seasons): pic.twitter.com/kRbLlzqGjO— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) February 27, 2020 An interesting aspect of the proposed CBA that NFL players will vote on: The compensatory pick calculation would be revised to exclude many “core veterans,” including those who sign 1-year deals making less than $1.75 million. The hope is it allows players to sign more quickly.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) February 27, 2020 As far the yearly minimum salary increases each player should expect through his career, it does not seem to me that the proposed CBA is an improvement upon the current CBA in that regard.— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) February 27, 2020 More from Eric Winston on NFLPA's pending CBA vote: “I’ve said repeatedly there’ll be white smoke when there’s white smoke. Listen, the one thing we’re not doing is rushing into anything.... Every ‘I’ will be dotted. Every ‘t’ will be crossed. And when that happens, it happens.”— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) February 26, 2020 Static throws. Scripted routes. The QB drills at the #NFL combine are outdated — and need to change. We went to LA and filmed five new drills that showcase the traits of the modern QB. More movement and off-platform throws.

  • Trent Williams wants a new contract or trade from the Redskins
    by Scott Jennings on February 27, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports It's not over yet Ron Rivera has made bringing Trent Williams back into the fold a priority since becoming the Redskins new head coach on January 1st. That was always going to be a complicated, uphill battle due to the way former Team President Bruce Allen handled the situation last year. Rivera and Williams have discussed the issues that need to be worked out for a reunion to happen this season. The Redskins fired Bruce Allen and Head Athletic Trainer Larry Hess, two big steps for an athlete who had had issues with the handling of a tumor that turned out to be cancerous and needed to be removed. That side of the dispute seems to be worked out, but now we get to the nitty gritty which is money. Williams was placed on the Reserve/NFI list last year after he reported and had issues putting his helmet on. This means he wasn't paid for the entire 2019 season($10.85 million). He now has one year left on his contract that would pay him $12.5 million this year with no guaranteed money. Mike Garafolo is reporting that Williams wants a new deal, and if he can't get that he wants to be traded. The Redskins were going to have to give him a new deal for Williams to return, but they haven't agreed on one yet. This situation could go either way, but it is definitely in a better place than it was two months ago. #Redskins coach Ron Rivera says he’s had good talks with Trent Williams but sources tell me and @RapSheet there’s still work to be done on that front, as Williams has communicated to the team he wants a new contract or a trade. pic.twitter.com/SG7EYDmuNR— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 27, 2020 I’m told contract year LT Trent Williams has not been given permission to seek a trade, at this time.
