All atwitter 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.

He'd be who I'd target if it wasn't for his injury history— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) February 21, 2020
2 surgeries in 15 years of playing ball... people think just because they were back to back early in my NFL career that my career is over or that I’m a bust... just wait for it !!— 2️⃣9️⃣ (@DhaSickest) February 22, 2020
Important Update: Mekhi Becton is winning me over— Jon Ledyard (@LedyardNFLDraft) February 20, 2020
yeah I agree with that. 2010 had the high upside talent comparable, but not the depth of this class. It's pretty crazy to have both.— Steve Shoup (@Steveospeak) February 21, 2020
I'd say WR is similar, but obviously we saw this in the 2014 WR class with both the upside and depth.
It's not even March and I'm tired of the draft talk.— (@bentleyhaskins) February 21, 2020
I loved the mystery of draft talk in 2019, doing mocks, arguing, etc.
Chase Young has officially ruined Redskins draft talk for me, just like he will ruin NFC East QBs for 10 years.
Despite the report yesterday regarding Trent Williams, I’m being told that the Redskins are still far away from getting Trent back.— Redskinstoday (@redskinstoday_) February 20, 2020
Redskins TE1 as of right now is.... pic.twitter.com/dy3BuVpHuU— Redskinstoday (@redskinstoday_) February 20, 2020
Before getting excited... need to see him on the field. Until that time...he was slept on because he couldn’t play. If I’m the Skins I’m bringing in another young RB without an injury past. Need healthy legs in the mix here.— John Keim (@john_keim) February 21, 2020
Your reaction to the news that Trent Williams is reportedly likely to return to the #Redskins “because of Ron Rivera” is...— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) February 20, 2020
From NFL Now on @nflnetwork (on through 3p Eastern): The CBA terms on the table right now are better in many ways than the previous agreement. But they‘re not good enough for some at the NFLPA. An interesting afternoon lies ahead. pic.twitter.com/RP2yYLBWYU— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 21, 2020
A closer look at the NFLPA's current CBA approval process and the relevant language from the union's Constitution https://t.co/XmCkEwxKMC— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) February 21, 2020
The date(s) for the NFLPA's potential vote of all players on the proposed CBA is not set yet, source says.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) February 21, 2020
With healthy debate on players union conference call over 17-game proposal, it was level-headed Broncos rep Brandon McManus who spoke up and suggested face-to-face meeting w/everyone next week in Indy to better read the room. Great idea by McManus and player leadership. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) February 22, 2020

My guess is the one this week may be a deadline to play under new rules (more P5 salary this year, only 1 tag, $100M pc bump) this year unless they just do something wacky with the cap this year to protect teams.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) February 22, 2020

—Teams would now be able to activate a third player off IR during the season
—Teams could shuttle a few players from the practice squad (which expands to 14 players in 2022) to the active roster and back without having to waive them
Regarding CBA players vote on today.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 21, 2020
Rosters would increase to 48 players from 46 on gameday, with overall rosters going to 55 from 53; practice squads would increase to 14 players in 2022, and 12 this year, up from 10.
Teams would be allowed to bring back 3 players from IR.
I really like the new practice squad rule. It should allow teams to be more willing to promote players to the active roster for a game or two without fear of losing them to waivers. https://t.co/0OLU86EYmX— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) February 21, 2020
If the NFL goes to a 17-game season, the NFL has told the NFLPA that the 17th game would not be all international games. So teams likely would alternate between seasons with eight and nine home games.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) February 21, 2020
If you have nine home games one year, you’ll have eight the next. That’s the current plan. No idea how they’d be able to pull that off with all the things that go into scheduling but apparently they believe they can do it. https://t.co/3BEjLtrC8y— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 21, 2020
Im sure its been communicated but its possible (maybe probable actually) that the union side feels its a very vocal minority and that they can kind of shut that down with some sweet talking to the majority of the group.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) February 21, 2020
But again, when a contract vote is imminent, the No's pound the floorboards and the Yes' walk on tiptoes.— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) February 21, 2020
