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.

Writing for @Warpath_News on the #Redskins sixth & seventh round selections of Kelvin Harmon & Jimmy Moreland.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) May 4, 2019
Moreland: ""I’m a dog. I’m just a dog."
Harmon was described as having a "big dog swagger" by @LanceZierlein https://t.co/j3z0l5CnUh

Belichick and Saban think these guys should practice tomorrow. In pads no less.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) May 4, 2019
How many days until training camp?— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) May 4, 2019
Excellent chart. 2020 compensatory picks should stabilize for a while by May 7, so stay tuned for an update there. https://t.co/pJdLwv76rZ— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) May 4, 2019
A $75,000 signing bonus kept practice-squad Vikings WR Jeff Badet from joining the Jets after the 2018 season https://t.co/kPosAGZL85— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 4, 2019
I got a look at Jordan Brailford from Oklahoma State while breaking down Steven Sims Jr. It looks like the Redskins might have found a decent player in the seventh round. Only time will tell. #Redskins #NFLDraft2019— James FitzGerald (@GMDfitz7765) May 4, 2019
.@Giants QB @Daniel_Jones10 has a lot of good qualities that haven’t been talked about enough. He is well coached, very tough, and as a walk-on, he is unentitled. I am excited about this prospect. #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/FwJfbVf8PA— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) May 3, 2019
Barely a year after entering the NFL, Josh Rosen already is working on offensive coordinator No. 4 https://t.co/thMheDCbHD— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 4, 2019

Matt LaFleur said he believes it was the team medical staff's call for Rashan Gary to wear the harness on his right shoulder. He suggested it is just precautionary. Gary injured that shoulder last season at Michigan but said on... https://t.co/TS9V7tCEl4 pic.twitter.com/kMwNYx7kkm— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) May 3, 2019
For now, urgency and not friction seems to be the right way to describe the Kyle Shanahan/John Lynch relationship in San Francisco https://t.co/Mp1gkPJASp— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 4, 2019
In the NFC:— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) May 1, 2019
10 teams have a QB with a $19+M cap hit
4 teams have a QB drafted 1st or 2nd overall and on a cheap contract
1 team has Dwayne Haskins
1 team has Dak Prescott pic.twitter.com/1QoRNQyZvy
Finally, here's all 4, sorted from best to worst season.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) May 4, 2019
Once you go outside of their best 5 seasons, Rodgers falls away.
Brady has an edge on Brees for high end play, but otherwise similar.
Manning is tops at most levels, with the gap at seasons 9-11 particularly striking. pic.twitter.com/JNUt7uv64x
Some clear takeaways:— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) May 4, 2019
1) Tarkenton was the best of the group, by a good amount.
2) Esiason had a really good 5-year peak, in particularly '85, '86, '88 and '89. He was on a HOF trajectory after his '89 season -- when he was still just 28! -- but he was inconsistent from there.
Here's every QB to win the AP MVP. HOFers in gold.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) May 3, 2019
Of the QBs in blue, I suspect that Ryan will finish with a better career than all of them. Anderson probably the 2nd-best. And possible/likely Ryan's career will be better than Kelly or Stabler or perhaps Warner/Bradshaw. pic.twitter.com/Kq8sNL94Yb
Ryan has 31 points of Gray Ink ANY/A (described here -- https://t.co/8OYHXZLJWl) -- that's enough to have him in the convo now. He should clear 40 or even 45 by the time he retires.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) May 3, 2019

I know nothing about the protocol of horse racing or the standards of the sport. But how can you not take questions after DQing the winning horse in the Kentucky Derby for the first time in 145 years?— David Aldridge (@davidaldridgedc) May 5, 2019
The KY stewards have put out a statement explaining their unanimous decision to DQ the Derby winner. Maximum Security caused interferance for War of Will, Long Range Toddy & Bodexpress. (Two of those jockeys claimed foul in the race)— Jeannine Edwards (@jeanninee12) May 5, 2019

The Kentucky Derby and the Masters are why you buy a big TV.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) May 4, 2019
I can’t imagine the money swing that just happened for those now cashing a winning ticket for a 65-1 shot. Or that horse atop a trifecta or superfecta.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) May 4, 2019
