Gruden said Ereck Flowers is playing tackle bc the team doesn’t have enough. Still expects him to be a guard and then backup swing tackle— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) May 29, 2019
Gruden says Moreland had the turnover we saw the first day and the three today, but they’ve shut him out in between.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) May 29, 2019
That said, he’s made his presence felt. Gruden also says watching him run with the ball makes him excited about his punt return potential.

Gruden said Landon Collins started doing on field stuff yesterday. #Redskins— George Wallace (@GWallaceWTOP) May 29, 2019
Jay Gruden said they started working Landon Collins in yesterday, but still being careful with him. Said it’s nice to see him on this side as opposed to in a NY jersey. Will really see what he can do when they get in pads. #redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) May 29, 2019
Jay Gruden on Dominque Rodgers Cromartie last season: I can imagine why he’d leave the Raiders. Jon will do that to people.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) May 29, 2019
Jay Gruden on DRC:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) May 29, 2019
“I get why he’d want to retire from the Raiders. Jon does that to people.
I’m kidding. Please don’t make that a headline.”
Jay Gruden says HBO would be crazy not not pick his brother’s Raiders for Hard Knocks. It seems his best plea to keep the snow away from the Redskins.— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) May 29, 2019
Gruden said he doesn’t mind if the Redskins do Hard Knocks but thinks HBO should go with the Raiders and do the Skins in 2020. I asked what happens if Skins make playoffs - Gruden: “If we miss the playoffs I won’t be here next year”— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) May 29, 2019
#Redskins Coach Jay Gruden hilariously pitches the #Raiders as the team HBO should feature this summer on Hard Knocks. “If they were smart, they would go to Oakland,” he cracked. pic.twitter.com/GwybiKCUUL— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) May 29, 2019
