Redskins inquired on Houston RT Derek Newton, who's also in talks on new deal w Texans. Skins also called on Chargers S Marcus Gilchrist.— Mike Jones (@MikeJonesWaPo) March 7, 2015
SD S Marcus Gilchrist, about whom #Redskins inquired per @MikeJonesWaPo is 26, has been 16-game starter at SS last 2 years. Played CB, too.— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) March 7, 2015
Drawback on Gilchrist is that he’s just 5-10, not as big as McC likes. But he knows he might not get ideal players right away.— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) March 7, 2015
[UPDATE #1: 1:48 pm 3/7/15] Both players have strong interest from their current teams.
Sounds like Houston willing to pay Newton more to stay there than Washington initially wanted to pay.— Mike Jones (@MikeJonesWaPo) March 7, 2015
I'll be curious to see what happens with SD safety Marcus Gilchrist. Was told the Chargers really wanted him back... Skins have interest.— John Keim (@john_keim) March 7, 2015
[UPDATE #2: 1:50 pm 3/7/15] That was fast. Newton has re-signed with the Texans
