  News Statistics Roster  
Kirk Cousins - QB Posted 4/20/14 10:29pm et
The Cleveland Browns could consider pursuing a trade for Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins since they have 10 draft picks.
Huddle Up: Ah, we see the Cousins-Browns trade rumors are heating up again, just in time for the upcoming draft. One way or another, the Browns will emerge with a new QB over the next few weeks with Brian Hoyer being the only experienced signal-caller currently on the roster.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 4/17/14 3:33pm et
An arbitrator ruled that Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson owes former agent Drew Rosenhaus $516,415 in back loans and fees.
Huddle Up: Looks like Jackson -- who just signed a 4-year, $32 mil deal with the Skins -- will have to pony up and peel a few bills off the top of his fresh bankroll.

Ryan Clark - S Posted 4/15/14 10:19pm et
The Washington Redskins' Ryan Clark is expected to be the team's starting free safety this upcoming season.
Huddle Up: Clark has missed only 5 starts over the past 6 seasons in Pittsburgh, and he's averaged 98 total tackles, 6 passes defensed and 2 interceptions per year over that span. That certainly sounds like starting material for the safety-needy Skins.

Jordan Reed - TE Posted 4/8/14 2:24pm et
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed said he has not suffered any setbacks and is feeling great after dealing with a concussion in 2013.
Huddle Up: Reed, who had 45 receptions for 499 yards and a 3 TDs in 9 games as a third-round pick last season, has much fantasy potential given the attention opposing defenses will be forced to give the suddenly-potent Washington WR corps with the signing of DeSean Jackson.

Pierre Garcon - WR Posted 4/2/14 5:45pm et
The Washington Redskins could consider restructuring WR Pierre Garcon's contract this offseason in order to create around $4.5 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Garcon isn't quite as important with DeSean Jackson in the mix, but that shouldn't be what the Redskins tell Pierre when they're trying to rework his deal.

Brian Orakpo - LB Posted 3/27/14 10:31pm et
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he wants LB Brian Orakpo rushing the quarterback more often this season. 'We want to get Brian rushing more than he has in the past, especially on third down,' Gruden said. 'Turn him loose, meaning also that when he has his hand down and he's rushing, he needs to rush. There's sometimes he's just peeking around and not getting up the field. Brian Baker ... will help him out quite a bit.'
Huddle Up: Orakpo made an instant impression with 11 sacks as a rookie in 2009, but has fallen short of that mark in the 4 seasons since. He did, however, come close with 10 sacks this past year.

Alfred Morris - RB Posted 3/26/14 2:08pm et
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he wants RB Alfred Morris to become a better receiver. He thinks he can catch 20-25 balls if he improves.
Huddle Up: If Morris is able to add receiving (and pass blocking) skills he'll be able to stay on the field in the Redskins' new offense. The alternative is Gruden using Roy Helu, who has already demonstrated his chops as a receiver.

Robert Griffin III - QB Posted 3/18/14 6:16pm et
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he will not wear his knee brace in 2014. Griffin has already started throwing to some of his teammates this offseason, and he'll work out later this month in Arizona will some skill players, including WR Pierre Garcon and RB Alfred Morris.
Huddle Up: While RGIII insisted the brace and his rehab from his 2012 postseason knee injuries didn't hamper his mobility last season, his stats beg to differ as his rushing yards fell from 815 to 489 while failing to rush for a score. Look for those numbers to rebound this fall.

Brian Orakpo - LB Posted 2/23/14 10:23pm et
The Washington Redskins continue to talk with impending free-agent LB Brian Orakpo about a new contract, but no timetable has been set at this point. The Redskins still have the option to place the franchise tag on Orakpo if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement.
Huddle Up: Orakpo, who missed all but 2 games in 2012, is coming off a solid bounce-back season in which he paced the Skins with 10 sacks -- the second-highest season total of his career.

Fred Davis - TE Posted 2/21/14 9:36am et
Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Fred Davis was arrested Thursday, Feb. 20, and has been charged with driving under the influence.
Huddle Up: Already facing an indefinite suspension for the league, Davis has opted to take the burning rubble that is his NFL career and douse it with gasoline. Or, in this case, perhaps vodka. Either way, a DUI on his permanent record won't exactly be a selling point when Davis applies for reinstatement.

Fred Davis - TE Posted 2/19/14 8:21pm et
Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Fred Davis has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Huddle Up: An indefinite suspension isn't going to help Davis land a gig in free agency. Davis has blamed the latest positive test on a supplement he didn't know ran afoul of the league's banned substance list, but we'll let the league determine all the particulars when he applies for reinstatement. Meanwhile, go ahead and remove Davis from your dynasty rankings.

Kirk Cousins - QB Posted 2/19/14 8:21pm et
The Washington Redskins would look to acquire a second-round draft choice if they are willing to trade QB Kirk Cousins this offseason. It is not known if the team has had any trade talks with other teams.
Huddle Up: Cousins was a third-round selection a couple years back, so getting a second-rounder would be a big plus for the Redskins. Whether they can actually make that happen, however, remains to be seen; a third-round pick seems a far more likely price.

Jordan Reed - TE Posted 2/18/14 6:55pm et
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is fully recovered from a concussion that ended his 2013 season and has begun training for the 2014 season.
Huddle Up: Reed finished second on the team with 45 receptions for 499 yards and 3 scores in his rookie season despite missing 7 games, and the Skins will be counting on a healthier Reed and RGIII this coming fall.

Kirk Cousins - QB Posted 2/18/14 11:38pm et
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins isn't expected to be traded unless some team grossly overpays for him. It is believed Cousins hurt his stock and value by struggling in three starts in December, and will not come close to fetching a high-round draft pick.
Huddle Up: Cousins threw for only 747 yards, 4 TDs and 5 INTs in his 3 starts, and it's looking like he'll spend at least another season backing up RGIII.

London Fletcher - LB Posted 2/14/14 11:49am et
Washington Redskins LB London Fletcher has let two months pass by since the end of the season, and he believes he is 99 percent certain of retirement. "It's still 99 percent. You have to leave that one percent out there," said Fletcher, who will likely transition to a TV career if his retirement sticks.
Huddle Up: Maybe Fletcher needs to consult Brett Favre for information on how to properly retire... over the course of four or five years.

Robert Griffin III - QB Posted 2/11/14 11:46pm et
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has already started throwing to some of his receivers this offseason, and he's scheduled to meet with some of his receivers, tight ends and running backs in Arizona in March to work out together. Griffin also plans to work out with former NFL quarterbacks coach Terry Shea again in order to improve his footwork and to speed up his release. Griffin was unable to do any of that last offseason while he was rehabbing from knee surgery. In 2014, he'll likely play without a protective knee brace, too.
Huddle Up: Don't bet against a big bounce-back year for the QB given the return to a normal offseason and the coaching change in D.C.

Santana Moss - WR Posted 2/9/14 10:43pm et
The Washington Redskins are discussing a new contract with impending free-agent WR Santana Moss.
Huddle Up: Moss, who will turn 35 in June, provides a valuable veteran presence to the Skins' WR corps but he hasn't had more than 46 catches or 584 yards in any of the last 3 seasons.

Aldrick Robinson - WR Posted 2/6/14 10:05pm et
The Washington Redskins re-signed exclusive-rights free agent WR Aldrick Robinson to a one-year, $570,000 deal.
Huddle Up: Robinson averaged 20.3 yards per catch last season but only caught 18 passes and will need more targets to become more fantasy-worthy.

Kirk Cousins - QB Posted 2/3/14 8:17pm et
With the Cleveland Browns hiring former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, there is speculation that the Browns could make a play to trade for Redskins backup QB Kirk Cousins, after he expressed a desire to be traded in order to be a starter with a team. Shanahan has spent the last two years coaching Cousins in Washington.
Huddle Up: It doesn't take much to connect the dots: the Browns need a quarterback, Shanahan has worked with Cousins, and Cousins wants out. In fact, it makes so much sense it probably won't happen.

Kirk Cousins - QB Posted 2/2/14 5:54pm et
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is open to being traded in hopes of becoming a starting quarterback. Cousins has already talked to the team about possibly being moved. One team that could show interest in Cousins is the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: With RGIII entrenched in D.C., there's no future for Cousins with the Skins, and with new coach Jay Gruden taking the reins, look for the team to deal him to the highest bidder and upgrade another area of need.

Jordan Reed - TE Posted 1/29/14 1:37pm et
Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay loves TE Jordan Reed, and Reed could be a force in the offense if he is able to stay healthy.
Huddle Up: Always good to have the OC on your side, but Reed's vast potential is hardly a surprise to fantasy owners who enjoyed his success in 2013. He won't sneak up on anyone next year, with his fantasy value limited only by how healthy he can remain.

Fred Davis - TE Posted 1/24/14 11:02pm et
Washington Redskins TE Fred Davis, a pending free agent, is facing a six-game drug suspension, according to a league source. He has previously served a suspension for marijuana use.
Huddle Up: That's not exactly the way to land a big free agent deal. Davis has significant fantasy value if and when he's on the field, but right now we don't know when or where that will be happening.

Jim Haslett - DC Posted 1/18/14 3:00pm et
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said defensive coordinator Jim Haslett will remain in his current job. Gruden also said Haslett could receive a contract extension since he only has one year left on his contract.
Huddle Up: Gruden's an offensive-minded guy, and if he's comfortable with Haslett and the way the Washington defense is being run then continuity is a good thing.

Jay Gruden - HC Posted 1/9/14 12:48pm et
The Washington Redskins hired Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden as their new head coach.
Huddle Up: It's Jay, the Bengals' offensive coordinator -- not broadcasting brother Jon -- in a hire that's raised more than a few eyebrows across the league. Regardless, Gruden will be charged with reversing the fortunes of a team which went from 10 to 3 wins in 2013 and featured a scoring offense and defense ranked in the bottom third of the league.

Robert Griffin III - QB Posted 1/9/14 11:26pm et
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said QB Robert Griffin III will be the team's starting quarterback and will not have to compete for the job.
Huddle Up: This belongs in the no-duh category as the Skins have mortgaged three drafts, including the upcoming 2nd-overall pick, to draft Griffin 3 years ago.

Robert Griffin III - QB Posted 1/7/14 7:23pm et
According to reports, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III had tension with his wide receivers. Griffin reportedly also would brag that he could procure favors from the team owner and influence the direction of the franchise. Griffin also led a public campaign to have the team's offense altered for him.
Huddle Up: Given the ugliness of the on-field play and off-field rumors and "reports," Skins fans and RGIII's dynasty league owners might want to just pretend that the 2013 season never took place. Let's all hope for a 2014 clean slate.

Mike Shanahan - TM Posted 12/30/13 11:07am et
The Washington Redskins fired head coach Mike Shanahan and his staff.
Huddle Up: This has been brewing for a while now as Shanahan and owner Daniel Snyder couldn't get along. The Washington coaching search should at minimum be interesting.

Kirk Cousins - QB Posted 12/30/13 11:07am et
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed only 19 of his 49 pass attempts for 169 yards with two interceptions and a lost fumble in the Week 17 game against the New York Giants. His record dropped to 0-3 as a starter this season. Beat writer Tarik El-Bashir feels that previous talk of Cousins being traded for a second-round draft pick might have been premature.
Huddle Up: There are still plenty of quarterback-needy teams who will be going over three games of Cousins film, so the Redskins can expect to field some phone calls this offseason.

Jordan Reed - TE Posted 12/23/13 12:09pm et
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was placed on Injured Reserve.
Huddle Up: Logan Paulsen and Fred Davis have replaced Reed over the past month as the Redskins play out the string.

Jordan Reed - TE Posted 12/19/13 4:27pm et
The Washington Redskins announced the TE Jordan Reed (concussion) will miss the rest of the 2013 season and is slated to visit with more specialists. 'We're going to do what we can to make sure that he's looked at carefully, and when the doctors say that he's ready to go, he'll be ready to go,' head coach Mike Shanahan said.
Huddle Up: It's a tough way to end a season that featured so much promise and production for Reed, who hasn't played since getting injured in Week 11. The TE also dealt with concussion issues in college, and hopefully this hasn't developed into a chronic problem.
