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.

Redskins twitter feed:
Terry McLaurin’s 82.4 @PFF grade is 5th amongst all NFL wide receivers. “He has played 90.3% of Washington’s offensive snaps through Weeks 1 and 2, a figure that leads all at his position.”— Redskins Realm (@SkinsRealm) September 17, 2019
Will be interesting to see how the O develops. Passing attack better much faster than I anticipated. Designs excellent. A LOT left on field first two games. New Qb. Other new parts. Ok.. If they start to hit those, will be interesting. But D, run game must improve. Otherwise...— John Keim (@john_keim) September 17, 2019
It’s on all of them, coaches and players. Can’t leave big cutback lanes etc. can’t play 10 yards off WR on 1st and 10 (coaches typically don’t tell how far off to play). Win 1-1s. And yes Coaches need to do better creating pressure thru design etc. Will take them all. https://t.co/yrtcNKJkB0— John Keim (@john_keim) September 17, 2019
This is among the things they like about kelvin Harmon. Blocks well. See it a lot. (Wondered if tip-off for a run when he’s in game. Checked and no: of his 17 snaps, 12 dropbacks/5 runs) pic.twitter.com/J8Qp9Ih1jc— John Keim (@john_keim) September 17, 2019
For the how-can-u-not-rip-the-scheme-every-play crowd: yes I’d like to see more movement up front; stunts; get 90 stunting inside etc. help more. Agree. but a 4 man pass rush with 3 first round picks also should win some 1-1s.— John Keim (@john_keim) September 17, 2019
Of course, they aren't good enough when you're in 3rd/14 or 2nd/20 because of holding, false starts or getting ambushed at the LOS. https://t.co/iTRafEweLk— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 17, 2019

So Finlay is now reporting Trent Won't come back to the Skins...period. There are still a bunch of LT needy teams out there...— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) September 17, 2019
Jax - They need help but may not be contenders
Denver - Bolles was horrid
49ers - Staley broke his leg
Browns - they would love TW
Pats - just because
#Redskins not wanting to trade 2020 1st-rounder for #Minkah or #Ramsey is understandable but not in accordance w/ being "close." Won't trade Trent when doing so is best long-term play but also won't trade for quality CB for struggling 2ndary? Be all in or all out; not the middle.— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) September 17, 2019
This is also another example of how the #Redskins constantly mis-judge their employees & just think they'll cave instantly.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 17, 2019
Even if they win this, an angry bear is going to be on the prowl.
IF THEY WIN. https://t.co/6QBrEC1ExM
One thing that has been pointed out by an NFL person: The 49ers play at Washington Oct. 20 and the trade deadline is Oct. 29. Seems doubtful that Daniel Snyder would want to see Trent Williams in a 49ers uniform playing his team at FedEx Field.https://t.co/zBRDsTQ0Dx— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) September 17, 2019
"I was told that with the whole Kirk Cousins thing. Kyle wanted Kirk Cousins. He would've traded one of those  first-round picks, maybe even No. 2 overall and the Redskins wouldn't even talk to Kyle." https://t.co/874zESDnlL— Jake Russell (@_JakeRussell) September 17, 2019
Kinda breaking news...

At this point the #Jets best course of action with Johnson is to find a trade partner and see how much of his salary they will eat. Pay the balance as a bonus and walk away.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) September 17, 2019
I'm going to try and be more positive about the Skins. That doesn't mean less critical, naive or delusional. But if I can't enjoy the few things going on (McLaurin, AP's TD, passing game) football is going to drive me mad.— The Burgundy Ghost (@HmBrewer72) September 17, 2019
Donald Penn was really good on Sunday, he had the 5th highest pass-blocking grade of the week with an 87.8 and didn't allow a single pressure, per @PFF.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) September 17, 2019
Just another reason to trade Trent to any of the dozens of teams in desperate need of a tackle. #HTTR
We’re a ways away from the offseason but the Skins will have some big decisions to make with that right side. Scherff has had his elite flashes but he doesn’t look like he’s playing with a big contract on the line. And Moses, well...... https://t.co/xzRyVQsJpt— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) September 17, 2019
The Redskins worked out QB Wilton Speight, QB Tanner Lee, WR Pharoah McKever and TE A.J. Derby, per source...— John Keim (@john_keim) September 17, 2019

The Eli Manning era is over, it appears.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 17, 2019
The Giants are benching the best QB in franchise history. With Manning as starter, New York won a whopping 116 of 232 games. Without Eli, the Giants have only gone 576-482-33 in franchise history.
Eli Manning is sent to the bench with a career record of 116-116. Timing is everything.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) September 17, 2019
The reason all of your favorite anti-QBWINZ NFL analysts are pointing at Eli’s career win percentage and shouting is that lots of people have shouted “HE’S A WINNER” at us for very many years— Ty Schalter (@tyschalter) September 17, 2019
Who is it to say that Haskins was commenting on the QB situation in NY? Maybe he had a really good breakfast this morning and was like "sheesh, that was some really good eggs benedict" I would be in the same boat https://t.co/Xn9YkQtied— Justin Penik (@JPenik74) September 17, 2019
One thing about the Daniel Jones news. I can assure you, if he struggles, the people who pushed for months for him to start early, will get amnesia and go into the Witness Protection Program. I've seen this play before.— Dan Leberfeld (@jetswhispers) September 17, 2019
Should be less than that. Of his 17m, 5m came as a roster bonus I believe and 500kbas a workout. So about 675k a week— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) September 17, 2019
If Eli never starts another game, he will end up with the exact same career wining percentage (.500) as Jim Plunkett, the exact same number of Super Bowl wins (2), and the exact same number of top-3 seasons (zero).— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 17, 2019

Per rival clubs, the asking price for Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey is two first-round picks.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 17, 2019
That's a starting point. And added to what it'd cost to extend Ramsey, it's a lot. But it's not totally crazy, given what Seattle got for Frank Clark and Miami got for Laremy Tunsil.
There are teams interested in trading with the Jacksonville Jaguars for Jalen Ramsey. This is what I am told has been offered so far: a 1st in 2020 & 5th in 2021 from an NFC Team and a 1st in 2020 & a player from an AFC Team— Dianna (@diannaESPN) September 17, 2019
Watching this Jalen Ramsey presser -he would be a sports talk radio dream to deal with in Washington.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 17, 2019

Jalen Ramsey strikes me as the kind of guy who becomes a problem for the type of coach who goes around looking for players to become problems.— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) September 17, 2019
Jalen Ramsey: "I have nothing bad or negative to say about anyone in the building. I don't want to speak on it or give too much detail. I will let God do his work."— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 17, 2019
Asked why he wants out of Jacksonville, Ramsey said: "I'm super excited to play this Thursday....if I'm still here"
This is going to be a really long season. But they're doing it Astros style. Bet they're good before the teams who refuse to do this are. https://t.co/QNngiH2uRY— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 17, 2019
If the #Dolphins end up coaching the Reese’s Senior Bowl it’s an incredible opportunity with 7 picks in the first three rounds. Coaching in the @seniorbowl is a HUUUUUGE advantage in the draft if a staff does it right. #TheDraftStartsInMOBILE— Jim Nagy (@JimNagy_SB) September 17, 2019
With the trade of Fitzpatrick to the Steelers official the Dolphins are now up to $55M in dead money this year and have the early lead in 2020 dead money at $11.9M. All the moves should have them over $110M in cap space next year— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) September 17, 2019
Stephon Tuitt: 26— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 17, 2019
TJ Watt: 24
Devin Bush: 21
Minkah Fitzpatrick: 22
A lot of defensive coordinators around the league would give their left nut to have a young core like that.
I’ve been wrong on Dak the most, probably.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 17, 2019
Yes, having Amari and Kellen helps, but Dak *himself* looks like an entirely new quarterback. I’m not sure when it all clicked, but it did. https://t.co/lpIbud98pj
I know we all like to HOPE for young quarterbacks to make that fabled second year jump, but rarely is that jump this pronounced.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 17, 2019
Literally every single fatal flaw he exhibited last season looks drastically improved.
Every. Single. One.
That’s a testament to hard work, folks.
One important salary cap note for those looking to use the June 1 designation next year on players with big dead money numbers- unless a new CBA is signed the June 1 doesnt exist in 2020. All cap taken in 2020 no matter when cut— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) September 17, 2019
