A look at the top Redskins news of the day.

NFL: Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Re-Sign or say goodbye FA predictions for every NFL team | ESPN.com

Garcon spent five seasons in Washington and was known for his toughness and consistency. At age 30, he's coming off a season in which he caught 79 passes for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns. He was the team's most consistent receiver. The Redskins, however, haven't made much of an attempt (read: none) to bring back Garcon. There's a good chance they'll lose DeSean Jackson, too. But Garcon's exit, at this time, is more clear. He'll have multiple suitors as well, so his price tag could be more than Washington wants to pay. Prediction: Garcon is gone. -- John Keim

Jay Gruden first coach extended by Owner Daniel Snyder | ESPN.com

This marks the first time Redskins owner Dan Snyder has extended a head coach since he bought the team in 1999. In fact, no head coach has lasted more than four years under Snyder. He has had seven head coaches and one interim coach during his tenure.

Jay Gruden encouraged by Josh Doctson’s progress, says WR has a ways to go | ESPN

If you’re possibly going to lose your top two receivers, you need the guy you drafted in the first round to be ready to step up. The Redskins still haven’t contacted Pierre Garcon to discuss a new contract, and the whispers surrounding DeSean Jackson link him more with Tampa Bay than the Redskins. But until they sign elsewhere, the Redskins could always swoop in with a last-minute generous offer. Barring that, the Redskins will need more from their current group of receivers -- especially Doctson, who was limited to two catches in two games his rookie season.

At combine, perception of the Redskins is an organization in disarray | Washington Post

Two representatives of prominent free agents on other teams said the uncertainty surrounding McCloughan’s standing within the organization, plus earlier reports of division in the front office, would prompt them to steer their clients clear of the Redskins.

Need to know: Ross’ fast 40 may put him out of reach for Redskins | CSN

What does Gruden contract mean for Kirk Cousins | CSN

Cousins has now been with the organization for five years with three years under Gruden including two seasons as the starter. He will turn 29 during training camp. The possibility of playing into his 30’s with the same head coach in the same offense likely has some appeal to Cousins.
