Reed is still in concussion protocol six months after suffering his latest one. https://t.co/bwU4FwvDs1— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) February 17, 2020
Adding to this, Reed can file a grievance if the Redskins release him when he's not cleared. It might be best for the Redskins to wait this out as Reed's contract isn't guaranteed until the start of the regular season. https://t.co/lZ6xGK8cox— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) February 17, 2020
One more note: Yes, he can file a grievance but b/c it's a 2019 injury (he was paid) and b/c his 2020 contract isn't guaranteed, not entitled to 1.2. if cut, might be entitled to extended inj protection in 2021 (last yr of deal). would be around 600K. cutting b4 cleared triggers https://t.co/z9NklqYAmB— John Keim (@john_keim) February 17, 2020
the 1.2 mil is what he's entitled to; if he can pass a physical next month then that 1.2 mil reduced to zippy. So while they can release him now without a settlement, if he failed to be cleared would receive this injury protection. might be semantics.— John Keim (@john_keim) February 17, 2020
Lions have spoken with multiple teams about a potential trade for Pro Bowl CB Darius Slay, per sources. Any team that trades for Slay would have to compensate Detroit and Slay with a new deal. Other teams believe Slay will be traded this off-season, but Lions adamant on value.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 17, 2020
S/o to the young man who waited in line at the @humanecharlotte event yesterday to give me this hand crafted pen that he made. I’m sorry I didn’t get to meet u & thank u personally. #newfavoritepen pic.twitter.com/sy6XUyrDIf— Ron Rivera (@RiverboatRonHC) February 17, 2020
Seeing all the positive posts for Rivera on the Riverboat Ron handle.— George Carmi (@Gcarmi21) February 17, 2020
Has me thinking... when's the last time we let someone graciously leave the organization? Allowed for a positive relationship afterwards?
I hope we don't do Rivera dirty. #Redskins
have been asked a few times about what I think will happen with Ryan Kerrigan. This is the prediction I made a couple weeks ago. Made it for a reason. https://t.co/5ijCNdswSy— John Keim (@john_keim) February 17, 2020
For those who think Washington should just draft Tua and then decide who is better, him or Haskins, this has been tried before! It worked out well for one of the two quarterbacks involved. Not really for the other. https://t.co/fip6C82PfJ— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) February 17, 2020
It did! They flipped Walsh for picks that they used to trade up to take Russell Maryland.— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) February 17, 2020
Some Redskins info: You can expect the team to exercise the option on Adrian Peterson, they like Derrius Guice - just need him healthy, do no expect Jordan Reed back. Talks with Trent Williams are on-going. Dwayne Haskins is their guy. #redskins #httr— Julie Donaldson (@JDonaldsonNBCS) February 17, 2020
The Bradberry information is too specific to just be smoke. He might be a 12:01 signing. https://t.co/V35D49x3rZ— Marshall (@MWharam7) February 17, 2020

Melvin Gordon to @CBSSports on Philip Rivers: “I think he’ll go to the Colts. I don’t know, that’s just my thought. He has Nick (Sirianni) there, the (OC), he came from here. They run the same playbook, so it’d be easy, he could come right in....That’s probably the best fit.”— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 17, 2020
Is there anything in XFL player contracts stopping NFL teams from signing them mid-season?— Zack Moore (@ZackMooreNFL) February 17, 2020
No one can come in and offer Cardale Jones or PJ Walker a couple million guaranteed as a back-up to make them stop playing and get ready for training camp?
Directly from NFL Operations:— Ken Ingalls - Packers Cap (@KenIngalls) February 17, 2020
April 27 - Beginning this date, NFL clubs may request permission to visit with, try out, or sign any player who was under contract to the XFL at the conclusion of the XFL season.
The XFL reached out to Tim Tebow to see if he wanted to play:— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) February 16, 2020
