NFL: Washington Redskins-Training Camp Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

It was Brandon Scherff's turn at the podium following training camp practice. He wouldn't answer questions about the ongoing contract negotiations with the Redskins. He had talked to Trent Williams and hopes he returns to the team. He emphasized the team's need to work on communication. He also said he is fully recovered from the torn pec that ended his season, and he is stronger than ever.

Donald Penn:

“He’s a big vet. We’re happy to have him on our team. He’s a huge vet, he’s a hard worker and we know we’re going to get the best out of him.”

Hugh Thornton:

"He ask a lot of questions. He’s just trying to know the offense and know the technique that we use for Coach [Bill] Callahan (Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Line Coach). He’s working hard and he’s just trying to figure things out.”

Rookie OL:

"Wes is doing really well. He’s light years ahead of where I was as a rookie. It’s kind of nice he played left guard in college, so he’s got to just step up there and play left guard now. He’s used to everything he’s just got to know the communication. I told him, when I was a rookie that it was hard. I was making a lot of mistakes, but you just got to; like Coach Callahan says you got to let the first one – if you make a mistake you got to let it go and move onto the next one. Ross Pierschbacher is doing an amazing job. I’ve known Ross since college because I took him on his official visit at Iowa. He’s coming along really well for us.”

Working with 3 QBs:

“I would say communication and cadence. Each one of them has a different cadence so our timing point on when to get off the ball on each quarterback is a little different. And, you know, we just kind of got to work at that each and every day on whose going to be working with us. We’ve just got to make sure we get the cadence down.”

Ereck Flowers:

“Oh yeah, yesterday he came up and talked to me about how to do certain things because pretty much at tackle if you don’t know who to block you just block the end, so guard is a little bit more of a mind game and I said I’ll help him whenever he wants.”

Morgan Moses:

"It’s awesome, you know, Morgan’s a great guy. He was the first guy when I got to the Redskins to pull me under the wing and pretty much help me out with whatever I needed. It’s kind of nice being there for five years playing side by side – we kind of know each other’s tendencies without communicating, so that’s nice we can kind of play ahead of the game.”

New contract:

Trent Williams:

Bill Callahan:

"There is no better coach to have then Coach Callahan. He pretty much slows everything down for them and just talks to them. I told him, when I was a rookie he did the same thing for me to help me catch along. He puts you all in game situations during post practice, pre-practice, that is all we are working on is the looks we are going to get from a defense and the adjustments we have to make off of it. He just dumbs everything down to slow motion speed so that you can get the fundamentals and techniques that you need to do to get that block.”

Stronger than ever:
