The Daily Twitter will be posted at the beginning of every day (at midnight in Washington, DC). The goal is to give readers a handy spot to check the Redskins beat writers & bloggers, and national sports journalists to keep up on the latest news about the Redskins, the NFL, and sports in general.

If you missed #Redskins President Bruce Allen speaking for the first time in forever today, he did at the @seniorbowl & @1067theFan was there w/ @CraigHoffman on the scene. We have the audio & probably 588 reasons why you listen in full. https://t.co/WityMTXN8R @ChrisLingebach— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) January 23, 2019
Shame on me for expecting any useful remarks out of Bruce Allen after almost two years of public silence. Good questions, empty answers. Nothing but platitudes, deflections, excuses. Still sounds like a clueless grampa. Waste of time.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) January 23, 2019
... downside of that approach: If you're telling everybody you've got it, you'd better get it. Can't afford a 5-11 season after a statement like that.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) January 23, 2019
Allen on the risk/reward of claiming Reuben Foster: "Think we had a good sense of who the person was and did our own quick investigation of some of the facts that we had heard. We’re fortunate that the outcome was somewhat anticipated." #Redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) January 22, 2019
"If anyone can do it, Alex can."— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) January 22, 2019
Is there anyone who doesn't say this about their guy?
Bruce Allen, on whether the new stadium will still be the renderings that were released that included a moat:— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) January 22, 2019
"That changed a few years ago. As soon as that appeared on '60 Minutes,' it changed."
Allen says "it's feasible" that a new Redskins stadium will get done before FedEx Field lease expires.— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) January 22, 2019
Bruce Allen on the decision to bring back Jay Gruden: "We looked at the program. We felt the direction of the team was good. We didn’t get over that hurdle this year. Giving him the opportunity to build a staff and hopefully have a healthy team for the 2019 season." #Redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) January 22, 2019
Also, this, on why Foster's former Alabama teammates said they didn't talk to the Redskins about him: "We don't want our players discussing what we discuss with them." https://t.co/dHvtFdI0JR— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) January 22, 2019
"We've been in the middle of the pack the last three seasons. It means you're close." Get hemorrhoids, Bruce.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) January 22, 2019
It is unbelievable that Ernie Grunfeld isn't the worst GM in DC. What does it take to get fired as a GM in DC??— Jay Little (@parlin56) January 22, 2019
Still digesting everything from Bruce Allen’s presser. Will be talking about it with @chaddukes in a little bit.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) January 22, 2019
One thing to add - I asked Bruce if he’s going to talk more often and if this is a sign of things to come. He said yes, and he’ll speak again at the combine.
Thank you & well done to DC media folks who tried to make lemonade out of lemons in Alabama. Had to fit 14-lb Turkey into a sandwich bag. 2 years of questions into 13 mins. Kudos to @CraigHoffman @Tarik_ElBashir @michaelpRTD @JPFinlayNBCS @InstantRHIplay @kareemcopeland & others.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 22, 2019
Just a clarification on this one, the parenthesis are the notables who are scheduled to be FAs, not necessarily who Schaffer has talked to— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) January 22, 2019
Allen says salary cap decisions will come closer to the Combjne. Team is still working on valuations internal and external— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 22, 2019
On if they'll ever fill GM vacancy left 2 years ago by McCloughan, Bruce Allen: "We got a lot of confidence in [Williams] and his entire department...Doug doesn't want to negotiate contracts. That's not his forte. He's a great leader of men and he has a super eye for talent."— Chris Lingebach (@ChrisLingebach) January 22, 2019
Allen is pressed about the #FireBruceAllen movement: "The passion of our fans is fantastic, they want us to win."— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) January 22, 2019
Bruce Allen says Jay Gruden is handling the changes to the coaching staff— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 22, 2019
Bruce Allen says Greg Manusky was in the interviews with defensive coordinator candidates. He is portraying the conversations as an exchange of ideas. "We are trying to find a winning combination for 2019."— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) January 22, 2019
Furious Saints fans are targeting the NFL with boycotts, billboards -- and lawsuits. "It’s inane," said a Washington attorney focused on sports law. https://t.co/y3RLbwS3Kv— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) January 22, 2019
Daniel Jones says he received a first- round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board. #SeniorBowl— NFL Draft (@NFLDraft) January 22, 2019
How thorough is the background dive NFL clubs do on prospects? Missouri QB Drew Lock was asked in an interview about a math test he cheated on in the 9th grade.#SeniorBowl— Chase Goodbread (@ChaseGoodbread) January 22, 2019
NC State QB Ryan Finley tells me he met with Redskins scouts last night and that it went well.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 22, 2019
Redskins also spoke with Penn State QB Trace McSorley. He grew up in Ashburn and as a Redskins fan.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 22, 2019
