Redskins Draft Countdown: Alabama S Landon Collins | Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
Potential issues: He’s a question mark in coverage and he has some technique issues to clean up (as does virtually every player coming out of college). And although he’s not small by any means, Scot McCloughan likely would want a bigger strong safety manning the middle of the field for the better part of the next decade. But the big issue with Collins is if the Redskins can will the trigger on drafting him.

Redskins Roster Reset: Defensive line | Comcast SportsNet Washington
2015 Outlook: If you're still not sure what General Manager Scot McCloughan considered to be his team's most pressing need, consider this: three of his five free agent signings have been defensive linemen. And, on paper, the retooled unit appears better suited to what new defensive coordinator Joe Barry hopes to accomplish.

“The only thing I’ve told Griff is to just continue to be himself,” Orakpo said Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio’s Movin’ the Chains. “You can’t appease everybody. Everybody is going to think of you as one way. But you really know who you are.”

Washington Redskins contract breakdown: Jeron Johnson - ESPN
The Redskins signed Johnson to a two-year contract Monday, but the true value of it is less than it first appeared (as is always the case). He did receive a $350,000 signing bonus, but that’s the only guaranteed money in the deal. And the total package includes $1.8 million in not likely to be earned incentives, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Revisiting the Washington Redskins' unrestricted free agents - ESPN
The Washington Redskins entered free agency with 11 unrestricted free agents and, while Scot McCloughan's goal is to eventually retain their own, this wasn't the class to accomplish that goal. They've re-signed one of the 11 and there's a chance only two will return. In the future, that will be a bad sign; for now, it's (mostly) about saying goodbye to players who did not help them win.

Does the Washington Redskins’ re-signing of quarterback Colt McCoy mean Oregon passer Marcus Mariota is coming or Robert Griffin III or Kirk Cousins are leaving? Does it mean anything other than the Redskins needed a third arm?
