Case Keenum won’t save the Redskins but he gives them freedom to fill a thin roster https://t.co/x0IEYxO0jd— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) March 8, 2019
Just because Case Keenum will soon be a Redskin doesn't mean Josh Rosen can't become one, too. https://t.co/PAbCXgipzS— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) March 8, 2019

How are you feeling about the Redskins’ trade for Case Keenum?
28th since last Super Bowl.— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) March 9, 2019

So everybody is killing the Redskins b/c they gave up nothing to pay $3.5M to a guy John Elway gave $25M fully guaranteed at signing last year?— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) March 8, 2019
I don't get the vitriol.
Plus, who said they are done at QB? My guess is far from it ...
J.P. Finlay with a bit of wisdom:
Since articles and podcasts don’t always register and everything needs to be official on Twitter: The Skins arent done at QB. There will be another one before May, and he will be on a rookie deal.
John Clayton on the #Redskins' QB plans: "I think they're going to draft a quarteback, depending on if the 4th quarterback falls to them." Says that they could take either Lock or Jones if they fall.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) March 8, 2019
Beyond adding QB help with Case Keenum, the Redskins also:— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) March 8, 2019
1. Clarified their budget entering free agency
2. Ended the charade that they believe Colt McCoy could unequivocally serve as a Week 1 starter
3. Kept long-term options like Josh Rosen or a 2019 draft selection in play https://t.co/erIHkwaKea
Any chance they got Case Keenum just so he can play in the Redskins at Vikings game next year?— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) March 8, 2019
He’s a fantastic human being. Very nice guy. https://t.co/hg6XQu9gk1— Dave Schwartz (@Dave_Schwartz) March 8, 2019
'Whatever your preconceived notion of what Case Keenum is, that's pretty much what he is.' - @Tyler_Polumbus— danny rouhier (@funnydanny) March 8, 2019
Tyler Polumbus who played with McCoy in DC on a competition between Keenum & McCoy: "In any different organization, Colt would have a tough time. But in Washington, I know for a fact that Jay Gruden respects the heck out of Colt McCoy." #Redskins— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) March 8, 2019
John Clayton on the #Redskins' trade for Case Keenum: "It's not bad... They had to do something." There is your slogan!— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) March 8, 2019
Important to note: Everyone had been saying they'd get a vet around this price range all offseason. then they did so. Keenum/McCoy both in last year of deal. So more moves could def be made at this spot whether Rosen (if ever free) or even 1st round. Need to get a young QB https://t.co/EdzgPDstuO— John Keim (@john_keim) March 8, 2019
If you ask me today who’s the Redskins starting QB, I say Gruden gives Colt every chance. But what say you?— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) March 8, 2019
If the Redskins hold an open QB competition, who would win?— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) March 8, 2019
Who will have the better season in 2019?— SNF on NBC (@SNFonNBC) March 8, 2019
Hopefully 5 or 10 years from now we'll get a full depiction of what exactly went wrong with Bell and Brown. The Steelers had arguably the best WR and RB in the league at the moment and effectively ran them out of town. A master course in personnel mismanagement— Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) March 8, 2019
Steelers have no one to blame but themselves for the Antonio Brown mess. January 2017 was one long story about AB live streaming Tomlin in the locker room, AB being unhappy, AB caring only about his stats. February 2017, the Steelers made him the highest-paid receiver in the NFL. pic.twitter.com/0wpu9Mk51s— Michael David Smith (@MichaelDavSmith) March 8, 2019
Another source on a potential Antonio Brown-to-Buffalo trade said it will not happen. “I don't think the Bills trade was ever close to happening,” said one source involved in those talks. Steelers snd Bills briefly talked but “this is an old story. It was dead on Wednesday.”— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 8, 2019

It would appear that yesterday, Nate from Barstool was more accurate/reliable than 'NFL Network Insider' Ian Rapaport.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) March 8, 2019

Does anyone get more shit wrong than this guy?— JoeGlo (@JoeGlo1) March 8, 2019
Update should read: Schefter said it was BS. https://t.co/jdjhucyYTJ

Broncos' proposal would give a team the option once during the fourth quarter to bypass kicking off and attempt to retain possession of the ball by converting a fourth-and-15 play from its own 35-yard line.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) March 9, 2019
The Redskins made the Belichick proposal: All plays during a game would be subject to potential replay review under the coaches' challenge system.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) March 9, 2019
Chiefs are proposing that each team be guaranteed of a possession in overtime; that overtime be eliminated in preseason games; and that the coin toss for overtime be eliminated and instead give the option to the team that won the coin toss before the game.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) March 9, 2019
to be clear: I've heard multiple times how they'd like to have Crowder back. gets open quickly. there's a difference between Crowder and Quinn. Doesn't mean other can't be good, but one is now.— John Keim (@john_keim) March 8, 2019

Skins did not contact... But Weddle is a SoCal guy so this is a good move for him. Rams are kind of good too. https://t.co/Hlux3Ik9Oe— John Keim (@john_keim) March 8, 2019
If the Michael Bennett-to-New-England trade is finalized - and it is expected to be - Patriots and Eagles will swap 5th- and 7th-round picks in the 2020 draft, per a league source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 8, 2019
Eagles get a 5th; Pats get Bennett and a 7th.
Tracking Adrian Peterson’s situation, if he doesn’t stay in Washington, I would mark the #Bears as a potential team to watch. Depending on what happens with Jordan Howard and the RB market, of course. Brad Childress is close with Matt Nagy. A thought for down the line, anyway...— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 8, 2019
Honestly, I rather him compete for a Super Bowl than mentor Guice. https://t.co/nK9apTxToV— manny benton (@manny_benton) March 8, 2019
Per source, the Giants are trading DE Olivier Vernon to the Browns for a player.— Dan Graziano (@DanGrazianoESPN) March 8, 2019
Today's trade sending Vernon to the Browns opens up the real possibility that the Giants spend the 6th pick on a DL/pass rusher rather than quarterback.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) March 8, 2019
Two hours later the birthday boy gets traded to the Giants. https://t.co/WtaOc9rr0Y— Breaking Burgundy 2.0 (@TSCRedskins) March 8, 2019
Giants GM Dave Gettleman speaking at the Combine a few days ago:— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) March 8, 2019
Question: Will Olivier Vernon be on the team this year?
Gettleman: “Again, we’re in the evaluation process. I hope I’m with the team this year.”
Jags are clearing a lot of cap space, definitely could now go after Foles. They have created some holes though so it will be interesting to see how they fill them.— Steve Shoup (@Steveospeak) March 8, 2019
Would have to think he's a #Redskins target for LG despite the injury last year. Would also want a younger option to develop, but if he's your starter for '19 that's a good thing. https://t.co/1Tq7cVIker— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) March 8, 2019
T.J. was always great. Never quite worked out in Detroit. Injuries a big part of that. https://t.co/y11jsiKoTv— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) March 8, 2019
Speaking of salary cap maneuvers, this was a vague response fron Jay Gruden in Indy on whether he anticipates possible cap casualties Josh Norman and Vernon Davis back. #Redskins pic.twitter.com/Kr9cjyrwk0— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) March 8, 2019
A couple of things to remember as teams -- including the #Redskins -- ponder releasing players to clear cap space. Clubs can only designate two players as post June 1st designated releases and the cap space created cannot be used until June.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) March 8, 2019
Many of the players released today were part of the 2016 & 2017 free agency classes. Meaning, those UFAs signed next week stand a good chance of being released 2-3yrs from now. This is why 2yr & 3yr Cash are far more important metrics than the large APYs you'll hear next wk.— J.I. Halsell (@SalaryCap101) March 8, 2019

More from Van Pelt: "Maybe you want someone you think can attract a younger demo. You know what would do that? A team that wins games. Because you know what young people like? Things that are good. Steve Buckhantz is, and he has been for 22 years. Figure it out.”— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) March 8, 2019

Antonio Brown on his Instagram live: "Hey I'm about to announce my new team in like a little bit alright... Something positive is about to be happening real soon, trust me. Stay by the phone... Big announcement coming soon. Big announcement coming soon! Mr. Big Checks."— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 8, 2019
Went to see Captain Marvel and Antonio Brown did not get traded to the Redskins during it, so I consider my day a success.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) March 8, 2019
Did the ESPN security guy try to throw Belichick out of the set right after the Superbowl ended? pic.twitter.com/nsEEoM1Jg8— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) February 4, 2019
Sometimes it's the trades you don't make....Andre Burakovsky looked ticketed for Edmonton or some such place. He has 4 goals and 2 assists in past 7 games for #Caps. They now have some scoring depth if someone gets hurt in playoffs. And someone will get hurt in the playoffs.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) March 9, 2019
Final: VCU 75, Saint Joseph's 63. VCU finishes the regular season with a 12-game win streak, a 25-6 overall record and a 16-2 record in A-10 play.— Wayne Epps Jr. (@wayneeppsjr) March 9, 2019
Marcus Evans led the way with 23 points tonight. Issac Vann added 15.
