Sunday Slop: Redskins news of the day

A look at the top Redskins stories of the day

In response to this exchange, Hart chimed in and pleaded with him to “Come on home bro #HTTR”. Hart, a D.C. native and long-time Redskins fan, is not the only one who has been looking to help the Redskins with their player recruitment.

Breaking down the Redskins roster entering the offseason |

The Redskins signed Bostic during OTAs in May after projected starter Reuben Foster was placed on Injured Reserve with a knee injury. The 28-year-old journeyman became the main play caller within the Redskins defense and was one of the most productive on the unit. He finished the season as one of three Redskins with at least 100 tackles.

2020 NFL Scouting Combine: Biggest questions for top 5 QBs |

The combine will provide the first opportunity for NFL doctors to examine Tagovailoa, who won’t be ready to work out in Indy but intends to hold a personal pro day before the draft. So, while all signs are good so far, each team — with its own doctors, and its own level of risk tolerance — will be able to come to its own conclusions about how well Tagovailoa’s hip will hold up, whether there are long-term risks such as arthritis, etc. “If you’re going to bet your job on [drafting him], you better be damn sure that he checks every other box, because there’s a lot of things to nitpick on with this guy — most importantly, the injuries,” an AFC executive said. “He’s a 6-foot quarterback who’s 230 pounds with a (dislocated) hip and it just doesn’t add up.”

WASHINGTON REDSKINS: Amari Cooper, wide receiver

There might be other enticing receiving options on the market (A.J. Green, 31 and Emmanuel Sanders, 32), but the 25-year-old Cooper fits best because of the years he still has ahead of him. If Dallas can’t find a way to keep Cooper, the Redskins should pounce on their division rival’s loss. Cooper would create an excellent one-two punch at the position for Dwayne Haskins to work with, teaming with Terry McLaurin to create a duo that can attack all parts of the field. With $53 million in projected cap space, Washington will have the spending power necessary to add a key playmaker to its young roster.

2020 NFL Scouting Combine Preview |

Other WRs to watch: K.J. Hill of Ohio State (6-0, 192) might not blow anyone away with his 40 time, but he should look good during receiving and agility drills. Hill did nothing but improve over his four years and looked solid at Senior Bowl practices. Denzel Mims of Baylor (6-3, 206) is another intriguing receiver prospect. His name has been all over various mock drafts, so the Combine is crucial for him to pull away from the pack.
