Why Bobby Beathard made the Pro Bowl | ESPN

Remember this? On the selection of Green in the first round of the 1983 draft, Beathard said Washington had the last pick in the opening round and did not believe the speedy cornerback would last that long. Beathard said he tried to trade up the draft board to secure Green but found no takers, so he waited and was fortunate to have Green fall into Washington’s lap at No. 28 overall. Green went on to play 20 seasons in Washington, recording a franchise-record 54 interceptions, with six of those returned for scores.

Redskins consider tagging Kirk Cousins and trading him | ESPN

Redskins coach Jay Gruden did not give Cousins a sense that the team would use its franchise tag on him when the two spoke last week, but others connected to the team insist that Washington is considering it. They believe it is nothing more than a business decision, a way for the team to try to get back at least the third-round pick it is trading to Kansas City for Smith.

Prior to joining the Browns, McCloughan openly praised Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield as the QB he would favor if he were choosing one for this draft.

As members of the Hogs changed over the year, Jacoby was a constant, starting on all three of the teams that won Super Bowls in a 10-year span.
