PHOENIX -- Redskins team president Bruce Allen is aware of the hashtags on social media that call for his ouster. His dad helped develop the Redskins into a top franchise in the 1970s, but they've been anything but during his son's 10 years. He long ago... https://t.co/3QS6FHaRkd— John Keim (@john_keim) March 27, 2019
PHOENIX -- Redskins team president Bruce Allen said contract talks with right guard Brandon Scherff are "on-going" as the team seeks to prevent him from hitting free agency next offseason. However, when asked about defensive end Matt Ioannidis, whose... https://t.co/CLgwb5XvuW— John Keim (@john_keim) March 27, 2019
Bruce Allen said the Redskins haven’t been contacted about being on Hard Knocks this year.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) March 26, 2019
Ryan Anderson and Shaun Dion Hamilton offseason training. Will need both of them to step up this year. Both could be starters. https://t.co/ox09PVqSzn— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) March 27, 2019
I still think they might draft one. If Flowers doesn’t work at G would be another swing tackle to pair with Christian (who is coming off an MCL tear) https://t.co/FYZ7lUbgSY— John Keim (@john_keim) March 26, 2019
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said they can't "reach for the quarterback of the future." They have an injured Alex Smith whose playing future remains uncertain and two others unsigned beyond 2019 in Colt McCoy and Case Keenum. pic.twitter.com/KFGcj5ohIt— John Keim (@john_keim) March 27, 2019
Gruden on Josh Norman: "As far as his play for the whole season is concerned, it’s a solid starting cornerback play. Now we’re looking for more from Josh and he’s gonna give us more because we’re gonna demand more. We’re looking for superstar status."— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) March 26, 2019
Evaluating NFL team decisions on a play-by-play basis, these are the teams that graded out as the most “Analytically-Correct” decision makers in 2018:— All Pro Analytics (@AllProAnalytics) March 27, 2019
Sources: The 32 head coaches crafted a proposal to add an official in the booth to oversee "clear and obvious" mistakes on DPI, OPI, roughing the passer, defenseless player rules. The HCs then voted 32-0 to present it.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 26, 2019
NFL isn't planning a vote on it. Some coaches aren't happy.
Sounds like Sean Payton and coaches are going to get a "win" after @Saints NFC title loss: The inclusion of non-calls on DPI in final two minutes via replay assistant has a very good chance of being approved today on amended replay review proposals, per sources.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 26, 2019
Major NFL rule change coming. https://t.co/YbV146N0Rg— USA TODAY Sports (@usatodaysports) March 27, 2019
With the new pass Interfence rules that allow you to challenge no-calls in place, this DEFINITELY would have been reviewed and called a penalty. pic.twitter.com/FOGGkapE3e— Redskinstoday (@redskinstoday_) March 27, 2019
To expand protection of the player being blocked, @NFL owners voted to eliminate blindside blocks. One-third of all concussions on punts were caused by blindside blocks. With the rule change, any forcible contact by the blocker with his head, shoulder or forearm is prohibited. pic.twitter.com/abA2cENnXe— NFL Football Operations (@NFLFootballOps) March 26, 2019
The fourth-and-15 proposal by the Broncos, which would have given teams an alternative to the onside kick, was rejected by NFL owners. Somewhat surprising given that it was endorsed by the competition committee by a 7-1 vote.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) March 26, 2019

After more than a decade in the NFL, my brother, former #Packers & #Raiders WR @JordyRNelson is calling it a career. He’s stepping away from the game with more than 8,500 yards...72+ TD’s and as a SB Champion! I’m proud of him and happy for him and his family! #Ese’ #Respect— James Jones (@89JonesNTAF) March 27, 2019

What if Hakeem Butler is Josh Doctson? Great final year production at an older age. Height/weight/speed freak. Likely first round draft position.— Anthony Amico (@amicsta) March 27, 2019
I am being extremely cautious here.
The market for Drew Lock continues to heat up. I won't be surprised if #Giants are involved. As many have said on here, he's going to go much higher than people realize b/c 1. Arm talent 2. Experience at the SEC level (key for some #NFL teams)— Dan Schneier (@DanSchneierNFL) March 26, 2019
Teams value games started vs SEC. https://t.co/qMYSu36fRz
IMHO he has also done the best job pre-draft in selling himself/explaining areas where he struggled... Mahomes did the same thing in 2018— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) March 26, 2019
Adam Schefter on NFL Live “The names I keep hearing for the Giants... QB Daniel Jones and QB Will Grier”— Robert Henson (@Mr_Henson51) March 26, 2019
market for Lock vs. Haskins in a trade-up scenario could be more active for sure.— Dan Schneier (@DanSchneierNFL) March 26, 2019
Caught the tail-end of Duke’s Daniel Jones’ pro day on @nflnetwork and liked what I saw - accurate ball placement which is #1 for me when evaluating QBs— Troy Aikman (@TroyAikman) March 26, 2019
#Packers president Mark Murphy confirms the team is in discussions to play an exhibition game in Canada against the #Raiders. Possible locations include Saskatchewan and Winnipeg, according to Murphy.— Michael Cohen (@Michael_Cohen13) March 27, 2019
Kliff Kingsbury is allowing phone breaks in Cardinals team meetings so players can get their "social media fix" https://t.co/wXD4H3IbqR— The MMQB (@theMMQB) March 27, 2019

presumably while at work ...
