A look at the top Redskins stories of the day

Jay Gruden mostly dismisses the idea of trading Trent Williams | NBC Sports

Washington would be crazy to trade Williams, the team could never reap dollar for dollar value with a player as good as Trent. That said, if Williams fully commits to not coming back, the Redskins need to consider their options.

Training camp notes: Landon Collins 1-handed interception steals the show | NBC Sports

  • Vernon Davis led the offense in yards per catch in 2018, and while guys like Sims, Terry McLaurin and Paul Richardson could each have that title in 2019, don’t count out Davis. The tight end is still able to get behind defenses, and he did so again on Saturday by scoring on a long strike down the middle of the field. That’s been a common sight so far.

Redskins QB situation: Is it the quarterback or the offensive line to blame? | NBC Sports

Whether it was the QBs - Colt McCoy, Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins - or the offensive line to blame is a matter of interpretation. It’s a bit of a chicken and egg situation. The quarterbacks weren’t accurate, but barely had time to throw. Maybe if they had more time, the throws would have been more accurate.

Keenum began his final 11-on-11 session with a long touchdown pass to Brian Quick on a post route, but the throw came after edge defender Jordan Brailford burst into the backfield for a would-be sack. From there, Keenum connected with Robert Davis but then capped his day with two straight incompletions in the red zone.

Rookies in Richmond: Ross Pierschbacher | Redskins.com

“It’s tough, I’m just coming out here just working hard every single day,” Pierschbacher told Redskins.com after Day 4 of training camp Sunday. “Just kind of nose to the grindstone, try to get better and figure out little things to work on and improve on every single day. Especially for a rookie guy like myself, there’s a lot to improve on.”
