The Redskins want to get a deal done with Brandon Scherff, and haven’t been shy about their desire to lock up the Pro Bowl offensive lineman. There have been reports that the team has discussed an extension with the teams Pro Bowl right guard. The team exercised the 5th year option for the guard they used the 5th overall pick in the 2015 draft on. He will play this year for $12.525 million. He will be a free agent next year unless the Redskins lock him up now, or use the franchise tag on him after the season.

Brandon Scherff’s 2018 season ended in Week 9 after he suffered a torn pec that landed him on injured reserve. The Redskins offensive line has been decimated with injuries over the last few years, and Sherff’s name was added last year. The Redskins have a stud at RG, and a lot of question marks on the rest of the line. They also have a lot of money tied up at the tackle positions, and there are reports that LT Trent Williams wants a new deal. The Redskins can’t pay everyone, so is Brandon Scherff worth getting paid like a top guard in the NFL?
