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.

The #Redskins announce LS @NickSundberg is their nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 12, 2019
A more than worthy nominee who continues to do amazing work in the community. A true pro on and off the field.
Nick Sundberg is the Redskins nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award... Second time in 3 years for Sundberg. Has the Loads of Love laundry program, but also does a lot more in the community. Always involved.— John Keim (@john_keim) December 12, 2019
I am so honored to be nominated for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award. Please help me win $25,000 for Loads of Love by tweeting #WPMOYChallengeSundberg as much as you can! Retweeting this counts as well. https://t.co/TwnDMHGWjG— Nick Sundberg (@NickSundberg) December 12, 2019

Congratulations to Maurkice Pouncey! The Steelers nominated him for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award which recognizes "Excellence on and off the field".— Roberto Shenanigans (@Rob_Shenanigans) December 12, 2019
Yes, PIT is trolling CLE with this. If the #Browns did this they would be getting lit up by the media right now. #WPMOY pic.twitter.com/CsdUke6ueA
#Redskins social media team. I feel bad for you because no matter what you post you are going to get showered with #FireBruceAllen for shit that isn't your fault— Mark Phillips (@RedskinsReview) December 12, 2019
That said surely you know the name of the Skins kicker in this game was Chip LOHMILLER and not Ohlmiller

I dont know what will happen (though I have the same suspicions as many others) but don’t get discouraged (or encouraged if you’re a fan) by news of Bruce Allen attending the NFL league meetings.

Bruce Allen is so awful that people are actually listing Chris Cooley and DeAngelo Hall as GM candidates.— #StevieFreePicks (@SteveDraft_) December 12, 2019
You guys know there are real executives in the building, right?

No Norman, Dunbar or Peterson at practice. AP often gets a vet day. We know Dunbar's hammy injury. Norman, well...
Josh Norman missed practice because he was sick today per Bill Callahan.— John Keim (@john_keim) December 12, 2019
is that the gametime, tackling, running, switching, communicating, so you can cover someone, medicine?— Jeffrey Bochner (@jaboch) December 12, 2019
How long will Adrian Peterson continue to play? “That’s up to him” Callahan said, but also mentions the possibility of Peterson playing at 40.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) December 12, 2019

Alshon Jeffery should be fine by next season but worth noting: He added $11.5M fully guaranteed for 2020 with his recent contract adjustment that becomes important now. https://t.co/GPnxrxtYMZ— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 12, 2019

.@MikeGarafolo reports that if the #Ravens lock up their playoff seeding by Week 17, expect RGIII to start vs. the #Steelers… even if Pittsburgh needs it to make the playoffs. That would be quite a curveball to the playoff race (tho RGIII has impressed when he’s played).— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 12, 2019

Jonah Williams will practice with Bengals https://t.co/NGyk2K5jK5— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) December 12, 2019
The #Bengals cleared first-round OT Jonah Williams (Reserve/PUP) to return to practice after he underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum. Even if he doesn’t play in a game, still a valuable time.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 12, 2019
He’s not going to be the most athletic guard out there, but LSU RG Damien Lewis did a great job of matching power on power against Alabama’s Raekwon Davis and Auburn’s Derrick Brown this year - two future First rounders - and is one of the strongest guards I’ve studied this year— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) December 12, 2019

I'm surprised Anthony Rendon only got $35M a year, even though that is the new record at 3B. I am also surprised he only got $245M total. I am lastly surprised the Nats didn't exceed that offer.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 12, 2019
But it is very clear they don't believe in spending market-setting cash on bats.
Sounds like deferred money was one of the sticking points on the Nationals' negotiation with Anthony Rendon. He made it clear all along he wanted no deferred money. He never got an offer that didn't include deferments.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 12, 2019
I can confirm that Rendon leaving sucks #baseballisabiz— Chick Hernandez (@MrChickSports) December 12, 2019
If you think about the huge contracts the #Nats have awarded, they all included deferred money. Scherzer, Stras and Corbin were OK with it. Harper and Rendon didn't want it.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 12, 2019
Not the only thing that matters, but the guys who don't mind deferments have signed. Others haven't.
It's time for the Nats to start thinking about locking up Trea Turner and Victor Robles. Juan Soto, a Scott Boras client, has a chance to break records when he eventually hits the market.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 12, 2019
But Turner (CAA) and Robles (Wasserman) might be willing to do pre-FA extensions.
