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.

Jon Bostic with the first INT of today’s open sessions Case Keenum tried to hit Chris Thompson for the screen. Thompson bobbled the pass and Bostic who was all over the play, concentrated and hauled it in #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) June 11, 2019
Deshazor Everett just jumped the route and pick-6’d Keenum. The Redskins have had some problems in the red zone here and there— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) June 11, 2019
Dwayne Haskins’ biggest fan waits for an autograph. pic.twitter.com/ONy0tTEJie— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) June 11, 2019
Apologies: he said he’d be in Paris for a few days. He will be going there on the 23rd. Said it will be his big getaway. https://t.co/geOpMLczLh— John Keim (@john_keim) June 11, 2019
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said they threw a lot of concepts at Dwayne Haskins this spring. “Long way to go but I like where he’s at,” Gruden said.— John Keim (@john_keim) June 11, 2019
Gruden hopes Haskins will be more natural when calling plays in training camp. Haskins is still getting used the verbiage on the NFL level.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) June 11, 2019
“A long way to go, but I like where he is at.” — Jay Gruden on Dwayne Haskins, who had a handful of impressive throws during today’s OTA. Below is Gruden’s entire response to my question about Haskins using the time between now and camp to his advantage. #Redskins pic.twitter.com/kEb08mkOc1— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) June 11, 2019
Donald Parham and Jermey Sprinkle have had some nice catches in the red zone today. Both physical and used their size— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) June 11, 2019
Vets have cleared out after last week’s mandatory mini-camp. Missing at today’s voluntary OTA:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) June 11, 2019
Others like Jordan Reed are not on the field thanks to injury. Trey Quinn (hamstring) is back.
Nicholson also acknowledged that injuries hampered his performance last year. He mentioned an ankle, hip and shoulder in addition to lingering symptoms from a bad concussion the year before. He’s all good now, though. #Redskins https://t.co/NxjGmUeu4a— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) June 11, 2019

Special Teams coach Nate Kazcor at the podium. He says the top 3 traits for a special teams player are:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) June 11, 2019
Says Terry McLaurin is the epitome of those three things.
He was drafted in part because he was the best special teams player in the draft. Yes, you do. https://t.co/kSfzq0jfCD— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) June 11, 2019
No Trent Williams update. Gruden simply said he expects everyone to be in Richmond for training camp.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) June 11, 2019
Gruden at the podium. He says Geron Christian hasn’t had a setback. The plan was always to bring back him back slowly. Christian has work to the side this offseason after tearing his MCL last year.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) June 11, 2019

This was the most telling quote from Pat Shurmur today. My sense is deep down he really would prefer to play the QB who gives the #Giants the best chance to win. If he were convinced that is and will be Eli, he could have said that. He didn’t. https://t.co/MYeNckvsP6 https://t.co/Rs9j0VheTp— Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardoNFL) June 11, 2019
Be interesting to see how Rudolph deal is structured. Vikings were desperate for cap space but they are really locking into this specific group of players— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) June 11, 2019
Reports of four-year, $36 million extension for Kyle Rudolph without more detail as to guarantees, cash flow, and structure make me wonder how real the $9 million per year new money average is.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) June 11, 2019
All the Steelers expected at minicamp today, for a change https://t.co/7pd8rub9iv— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) June 11, 2019
I had NFL teams tell me that Jadeveon Clowney was on the trade market during draft week which is not a surprise after the trade haul landed by Seattle for Frank Clark. It's hard to imagine a scenario where the Texans give Clowney a ton of guaranteed money with this knowledge.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) June 11, 2019
Rams' reluctance to sign QB Jared Goff to new deal doesn't mean they don't want him for the long haul, according to coach Sean McVay https://t.co/X6zsdCUGzb— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) June 12, 2019
Has two years left on his deal (this year plus the option for '20). So not exactly a "sound the alarms" situation. Unless someone makes it one. https://t.co/hiwt821jAz— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) June 11, 2019
The return of Travis Frederick should significantly improve the Cowboys’ offensive line!— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) June 12, 2019
He lands at No. 29 on the PFF50, despite not playing a single snap last year. PFF's @PFF_Chichester explains why he's the anchor of Dallas' o-line: https://t.co/hF6DalCVnc pic.twitter.com/wLsI1khsi3
A commercial real estate agent looking for a change of pace after 18 years on the job thought about getting a gig in the sport that he loved — football — but didn’t know how to go about it or what to do.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) June 11, 2019
So, the real estate agent, also the son of a Philly-based football coach...

And now Mayock’s first training camp as @raiders GM will be chronicled by @NFLFilms Hard Knocks.
Only in the NFL.
Good thing here for young people to watch -- "The Turk" from the 2001 Ravens, shown during Hard Knocks, was just introduced as GM of the New York Jets.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) June 11, 2019
