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, along with a smattering of other things.

#Browns are lining up offensive tackle targets on the trade market if they can’t convince #Redskins to let go of Trent Williams. Keep an eye on #Giants and #Eagles. One way or another, Browns GM John Dorsey wants to make a move to protect Baker Mayfield. https://t.co/jL8y3B541U— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) October 23, 2019

1-6 #Falcons: "Let's get what we can for Sanu and look towards the future."
1-6 #Redskins: "We're close."
The Nats got a 23 share. Skins got a 13 this week. It's happening. https://t.co/0Rv1E8oaVz— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) October 23, 2019
Apparently Steven Sims hurt his toe in Tuesday’s practice. He was listed as limited and again today. He, along with AP, Nicholson and Norman are questionable.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 23, 2019

Brandon Scherff is still the best offensive lineman on the Redskins.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) October 23, 2019
I get the penalties have been a problem and Ereck Flowers has surprised everyone, but Scherff still has a 74.4 overall grade. That's the 9th highest among guards with at least 100 snaps.

The Redskins Brass is still hopeful for Alex Smith return meanwhile the Colts absorbed the unexpected retirement of Andrew Luck and never complained once...

With the exception of Matt Stafford, none of the top QBs this season were the first QBs selected in their draft.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) October 23, 2019
Mahomes, Wilson, Dak, Rodgers, Brady, Cousins, Watson, Lamar, .... and the great record guys (Jimmy G, Brissett, Bridgewater, Allen), too.
The plan, according to @Saints QB Drew Brees, is to play Sunday. There are some marks he needs to hit before that happens. Still, things are trending to him getting his old job back. pic.twitter.com/cetasFSzq6— Steve Wyche (@wyche89) October 23, 2019

If the Browns are unable to pry Trent Williams out of Washington, the other LT I hear they are interested in is Nate Solder. They've already done a lot of business with the NYG, it's worth noting— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) October 23, 2019
It's Week 8 and the Bye week is now behind us. I think at this point you gotta dance with the one who brung ya.— Roberto Shenanigans (@Rob_Shenanigans) October 23, 2019
Trading for a lineman at this stage is a move out of desperation so the price tag will be outrageous. And by the time a "new" line gels it won't even be worth it. https://t.co/0bbVH3JZy0

#Patriots WR Josh Gordon was placed on Injured Reserve today because of two bone bruises in his knee that he dealt with before the injury against the #Giants, sources say. His time in NE is likely over as they are moving on. He’ll be waived off IR when fully healthy.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 23, 2019
Source says Patriots WR Josh Gordon expects to be medically cleared soon, and that his knee injury is "minor". I was told he ran 22 MPH on the treadmill during a rehab session today.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 23, 2019
Once he's cleared, he hopes to be released off of IR and sign with a new team.
The #Patriots spent a 5th round pick and a little over $2.5M on WR Josh Gordon. For that, they received 17 starts, 60 catches for 1,007 yards and 4 TDs over two seasons. A solid investment, one they are now moving on from.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 23, 2019
Josh Gordon trade wound up as:#Patriots got:— Evan Silva (@evansilva) April 29, 2019
Gordon, who finished top-25 among NFL WRs in yards per game. NE went 8-3 when he played, 3-2 when he didn't.#Browns got Oklahoma K Austin Seibert, who never made a field goal longer than 51 yards in college as 4-year starter.
This would be one reason for the Patriots to stash him until he’s cleared. Making him go through waivers makes it less likely he gets to a contender. https://t.co/09Dboa6qYT— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 23, 2019
DE Michael Bennett addressed reporters for the first time since returning from a team suspension. At one point, he said he likes playing in New England. At another point, when asked if he is happy here, he said, “It is what it is, man.”— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) October 23, 2019
Prediction: Patriots cut Michael Bennett after trade deadline or trade him to an NFC team before it. If they cut him before Tuesday, he is a free agent and can sign with one of New England’s top AFC competitors.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) October 23, 2019

- Over the Astros
- In Houston
- With Gerrit Cole throwing
- After a week long hiatus
- With Max Scherzer only going 5 innings
The Washington Nationals are now 8-0 in the postseason in their navy blue uniforms by the way.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) October 23, 2019

The Nationals are trying to make it to the World Series finish line by basically using six pitchers. Can they get there?— Todd Dybas (@Todd_Dybas) October 23, 2019

Juan Soto’s home run ball, retrieved from the Minute Maid Park train tracks after tonight’s game, is headed to the @baseballhall. Soto joined Miguel Cabrera, Andruw Jones and Mickey Mantle as the only players to homer in the World Series before turning 21.

“Since May 23, the Astros, including the postseason, are 81-41 and have scored 691 runs with a plus-182 run differential. The Nats are 82-40 and have scored 700 runs with a plus-203 run differential.”— FIRE EVERYONE SZN (@HeartbreakCtyDC) October 22, 2019

Always funny when folks get riled up over Juan Soto's batters' box routine. He almost always acknowledges when a pitcher gets him with a sick pitch. Watch his facial expression tonight if Verlander drops in a hammer curve. He'll give a look that says "Nice. Well played..."— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) October 23, 2019
