Need to know: New mock draft fills Redskins needs | CSN Washington

Burton Jr. and Garvin help improving Redskins Special Teams | CSN Washington

Overall, though, 13 of the Redskins' top-15 special teamers in terms of playing time will return in 2016. Two other special teams standouts—tight end Niles Paul and Adam Hayward—are expected to return after missing the entire 2015 season with injuries. The Redskins also signed defensive lineman Kendall Reyes, who played the 10th most special teams snaps among all Chargers last season.

Davis's contract indicates a bigger role with the Redskins | CSN Washington

Davis' one-year deal has a base salary of $2.38 million with a solid $1.1 million of it fully guaranteed. The guarantee means that he is virtually assured of a roster spot. The total base salary makes him the highest-paid tight end on the team. That distinction, however, may not last into the season as Jordan Reed could get an extension prior to September that may boost his $1.7 million salary considerably.

Need to know Redskins are setting up Cousins for success in 2016 | CSN Washington

Then they signed Vernon Davis to a deal that didn't break the bank but is rather substantial for a 32-year-old tight end. He's not the player he was even three years ago when he caught 52 passes for 850 yards (16.3 yards/catch) and 13 touchdowns for the 49ers but at 6-3 he is a substantial red zone threat. Between Davis and Jordan Reed, Cousins should never have a problem finding a target on third downs.
