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.

Adrian Peterson said he spoke with Trent Williams.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 5, 2019
Meaning in town.
Said Trent was dealing with some personal matters. Beyond that, unknown.
Gruden again coaching for his job... 4th QB to open season in his 6 years. "there are plays we've seen for six years [that] they've only seen for six months. It's like, 'How do you not know this?' It's like, 'Well, s--- I don't remember that play.' https://t.co/DGIUsDcMpJ— John Keim (@john_keim) September 6, 2019
A caller just now: "We're going to kick ass all season and go 9-7."— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 6, 2019
That's how beaten down #Redskins fans are.
Is there a double standard in the coverage, chatter with the Redskins & owner Daniel Snyder especially compared to other franchises in town? Yep. After 20 years of fumbles, they've earned that rep. It's why offering credit when deserved never comes easy.https://t.co/bcND9TJIWp— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 6, 2019

For what it’s worth, Ryan Kerrigan has recorded exactly 11.5 sacks in his career against all three division teams (PHI, NYG, DAL). He will look to kickstart 2019 with a big game Week 1 against the Eagles.— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) September 6, 2019
Redskins CBs: With Fabian Moreau considered unlikely for Sunday, the coaches are debating between Jimmy Moreland (JMU) and Greg Stroman (VT) for the final starting spot.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) September 5, 2019
Jordan Reed practicing. Fabian Moreau is not. Jay Gruden called Moreau a “long shot” to play Sunday earlier this week and he said Friday would be an important day for him. So he’s seemingly out. We’ll get confirmation later #Redskins— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 6, 2019
Dwayne Haskins on Terry McLaurin: "Baller. He's gonna have a good game... I love him, coaches love him, Case loves him. So I'm sure he's going to get a lot of targets on Sunday."— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) September 5, 2019
Running back Adrian Peterson said he talked to Trent Williams last night. In person. Do not take this as some sort of sign that the end is near. Did not seem to be about that. Trent does have a home here after all. Anyway, they chatted.— John Keim (@john_keim) September 5, 2019
Here’s Adrian Peterson on being a backup at the end of his Hall of Fame career. pic.twitter.com/pLZaOYbcKs— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) September 5, 2019
Thanks... he is definitely a key component. Was mentioned a lot this summer because of his play. Right now Payne/Allen overshadow but reason for optimism about the D is the DL and it’s talented depth...huge. https://t.co/szgkyEVDK3— John Keim (@john_keim) September 6, 2019
Redskins are a top 10 defense in the NFL!— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) September 5, 2019
Don’t @ me
Baugh came to the #Redskins as a rookie in 1937 and *established the franchise in D.C.*, taking them to 5 title games in the next 9 seasons and winning 2. Silly not to rank him No. 1. Not even that close. https://t.co/4KJmjkULOA— Dan Daly (@dandalyonsports) September 6, 2019
Best line of the week is Ravens -7 vs. hapless Dolphins -- but Redskins at +10 have to be close.— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) September 6, 2019
If defense comes out hot and Gruden doesn't abandon run game it will be a one score game. For some reason I think Gruden has finally realized running the ball is his friend https://t.co/Uo5cQ4JWpx
Was looking over some numbers and I wonder if the Colts felt they could be in danger of not hitting the 89% spending limit by the end of next season. That might explain the surprising decision to reportedly forgive all of Lucks payback and to do the big 1 year deal for Brissett— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) September 4, 2019
Already have 1.5 sacks. I got a feeling he will end up with 10+— Donnell Wilson (@Nelford) September 6, 2019
Full Tramon Williams quote on Mitch Trubisky:— Matt Schneidman (@mattschneidman) September 6, 2019
"We wanted to make Mitch play quarterback. We knew they had a lot of weapons, we knew they were dangerous, we knew all of those things. But we knew if we could make Mitch play quarterback, that we’d have a chance."
Trubisky was always going to take longer to develop, had significantly fewer reps in college...but he's rapidly getting toward "ain't it" territory.— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) September 6, 2019
If you're curious, there was not a single 1st & 40 in any game last season ...— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) September 6, 2019
... And the Bears are now up to 7 punts and a turnover on downs over their last 8 drives.
September is the new preseason.— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) September 6, 2019
The Bears defense is like that one really good player in your pickup game at the park who totally carries your team, but then he dishes it outside to Mitch for an easy three and he airs it over the backboard.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 6, 2019
Bears’ drives tonight:— Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 6, 2019

I don’t think anybody can come out of this game being super high on either team.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 6, 2019
If anything, tonight just hyped up a lot of Vikings and Lions fans because there’s some blood in the water. https://t.co/j41ciTfM5Z
Bears-Packers reactions:— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 6, 2019
1 Mitch Trubisky doesn't pass eye test.
2 GB finally spent $ in FA. Paid off on D.
3) Ugly game. Good night for the Vikings.
4) I wish Skins-Bears was next weekend.

Alright, watching this game a second time is only pissing me off more.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 6, 2019
I'm changing the Monday Film Room topic from Tunsil to...whatever the fuck that mess was last night.
Yo can we get whoever is writing this NFL season to take a crack at a Game of Thrones reboot? https://t.co/AIocF1FDKF— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 5, 2019
According to this report from @JosinaAnderson, Antonio Brown called Mike Mayock "a cracker" before he "unleashed" a bunch of "cuss words" during the altercation at practice. https://t.co/BHcZuVA5SQ pic.twitter.com/5ODynx1jgc— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) September 6, 2019
He’s willing to risk 30 million.. over 54 thousand... let that sink in https://t.co/YcBjbfVRXB— trey wingo (@wingoz) September 5, 2019
Per multiple sources AB problem is directly with Mike Mayock.— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) September 5, 2019
Felt disrespected and talked down to. Felt fines were unnecessary. Felt front office didnt have his back during cryo foot issue
Had to be physically restrained in altercation with Mayock yesterday.
Antonio Brown has been placed on the Physically Unable To Shut The Fuck Up list— Eric Stangel (@EricStangel) September 5, 2019
Honestly, good for Mayock.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 5, 2019
He's the GM. He's the boss. Antonio Brown was expecting to just walk all over his bosses because he's a star and wants special treatment, but Mike won't give it to him.
This sets a precedent for the entire locker room, and I love it. Culture matters. https://t.co/JDew0oDs8Q
I wouldn’t take Mike Mayock to serious either for the simple fact he had the nerves to rank 5 guys higher then me coming out the draft. And we all know how that worked out ♂️. Who Dat tho #letscallaspadeaspade— Michael Thomas (@Cantguardmike) September 5, 2019
“I’m trying to save AB’s career and keep him on the Raiders because no intelligent team would touch a guy who willingly would lose 30 mil and his NFL career over 54k”— Swan Dog (@TheAutumnWind96) September 5, 2019

Antonio Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, provided an update on what is unfolding between Brown and the Raiders.

Regardless of 'weight', it demonstrates two things:— Pickle (@picklepicklemon) September 6, 2019
1) Antonio Brown is, on some level, a racist.
2) He has a severe lack of respect for management.
Big issue holding on to him.
He has $30M reasons to apologize. https://t.co/YtyLv3XqBE— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) September 6, 2019
So basically the Raiders are he laughing stock of the league.— Erik Carpenter (@Erik_Carpenter) September 6, 2019
“No one player is bigger than the team. Except that guy. He can do whatever he wants.”— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) September 6, 2019
That’s what the #Raiders just signaled. Good luck, fellas.
Note to self- no more predictions on what you think will happen in Oakland.— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) September 6, 2019
Somehow Antonio Brown's crew got better access to the Raiders brass than Hard Knocks.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) September 7, 2019
Any chance this was an HBO recording during the helmet saga they were asked not to use and it landed with AB?— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) September 7, 2019
The production value of Antonio Brown's video is almost as amazing as the fact that he has no idea he has done anything wrong.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 7, 2019
So Im guessing the purpose of the video is to show that Brown is a family guy that is more than a football player but nobody cares about that including his team.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) September 7, 2019
Now that Hard Knocks has left town, they’re providing their own content and entertainment - knock on wood. https://t.co/w2SYJEl7Ck— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 7, 2019
Let’s make one thing clear: It took an entire TEAM around AB to put this thing out. He ain’t shoot and edit it himself. There’s a calculated message being put out from his camp.There has been since Day 1 of this saga.The social media drops, his agent interviewed all the time, etc https://t.co/gpFsgMtlCe— Courtney Cronin (@CourtneyRCronin) September 7, 2019
It just seems like @AB84 doesn’t want to play football anymore. All evidence points to that. I can completely relate to his behavior. I behaved the same way...playing the victim and I never had near his talent. Personal accountability is such an attribute. I hope he finds it soon— Ryan D Leaf (@RyanDLeaf) September 5, 2019
