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.

While NFL business is mostly on hold in CBA limbo, teams are still attempting to get deals ready. The #Redskins, for instance, are working to lock up Pro Bowl G Brandon Scherff long-term to avoid franchise tagging him, sources say. The Cardinals did the same with DJ Humphries.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 6, 2020
From NFL Now: The interest in #Redskins LT Trent Williams has picked up now that his trade request has gone public, but Washington wants fair compensation in order to trade him. What now? pic.twitter.com/qzdbfWaCl4— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 6, 2020
Chatted with Trent Williams tonight. Per earlier reports, the Skins contacted his agent and gave permission to seek a trade. Trent feels relief and told me physically he feels amazing. Doesn’t know what the future holds but excited to see what’s next. #redskins— Chick Hernandez (@MrChickSports) March 6, 2020
The #Browns have need & cap space. They were interested last yr prior to deadline. Williams is much younger than Peters, has ties to Callahan, & Clev thinks they're "close". They have 4 picks in first 3 rds. Also remember report that #Redskins had interest in Denzel Ward. https://t.co/X0iynOwZWM— Kevin Sheehan (@kevinsheehanDC) March 6, 2020
Just so "some" people don't get confused - these are just the teams I feel have a need at LT, and the draft capitol they currently have(not what they would give) https://t.co/OxLGLcTCEh— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) March 6, 2020
Gut feeling:— Ken Burgundy (@BurgundyBurner) March 6, 2020
Cleveland will offer a third rounder and TE David Njoku for Big Trent and the Redskins will accept the trade.
.@Redskins @TrentW71 @NFL is 31 years old and after a year off presumably as healthy as he has been in a long time. This was wk 17 of 2018. In a draft that features a lot of “blue chip” OT prospects, are any better than #TW71? You makes the trade? #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/qq32WEFihc— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) March 6, 2020
If I’m the #Redskins and no common ground can be found with Trent Williams... I talk to the Browns & Jets.— Chad Forbes (@NFLDraftBites) March 6, 2020
Ask both for their young Tight End (Chris Herndon or David Njoku) plus a 2020 2nd Round Pick.
Note, I would exhaust every effort to find common ground 1st.

Sounds like they want him around. Probably work a new deal that lowers the cap hit this year and gives him extra security in future years.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) March 6, 2020
The Redskins ran 885 offensive plays last season, which is the league's second-lowest mark since 2007. pic.twitter.com/3k2hJR5xND— Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) March 5, 2020
“There aren’t too many players with his physical profile, athleticism and history of production coming out of the collegiate ranks.”— PFF WAS Redskins (@PFF_Redskins) March 6, 2020
Which player would be a perfect fit for the #Redskins?
Haskins + Chase Young >>> Tua and I don’t think it’s particularly close.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) March 6, 2020
This whole storyline screams smokescreen. It’s gotta be trade bait just to see what teams will give them, because it would take a LOT for them to pass on Young.
I'll buy my scherff Jersey if this gets done.— James FitzGerald (@GMDfitz7765) March 6, 2020
Bad news for the rest of the NFL: Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes said he didn’t learn how to read defenses until halfway through last season. More on Saturday’s The Shop: Uninterrupted on HBO. https://t.co/h3kL9ocpLC— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 6, 2020
One name that has been discussed in trade talks: #49ers speedy WR Marquise Goodwin. The deep threat is due roughly $10M over two years, so his contract can be traded. Meanwhile, SF’s young core of WRs is emerging.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 6, 2020
Jets’ Quinnen Williams was arrested Thursday night for criminal possession of a weapon after attempting to board a flight at LaGuardia while carrying a Glock 19 handgun.https://t.co/BS0SxZgzhg— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 6, 2020
Been a rough start for Williams in NY. I'll chalk this up to him not getting the support needed to understand different laws.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) March 6, 2020
Union, agents, and teams all have a responsibility here. Doing a 1 day seminar is all well and good but most of it is going to go in one ear and out the other.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) March 6, 2020

Aaron Rodgers says on @WildeAndTausch he sent an email to every single Packers player educating them on the proposed CBA and got "next to no responses." Called it "disheartening."— Matt Schneidman (@mattschneidman) March 6, 2020
Nothing makes me eye-roll at your collective existence faster than speaking in certainties about the NFL Draft— Ben Fennell (@BenFennell_NFL) March 5, 2020
Saints putting money where mouth is: they’re planning to place 1st-round tender on restricted FA QB Taysom Hill, per source, meaning NO will have a chance to match any offer sheet he signs with another team or get back a first-round pick. Saints plan to re-sign him soon anyway.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 6, 2020
I thought he had a good season. You obviously think different. It takes just one team to take him off the market. That’s free agency— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) March 6, 2020

The #Titans are spending today in one of the affected Nashville neighborhoods to lend a hand in the cleanup, offer supplies and provide lunch to volunteers and residents. Very cool. https://t.co/z0cctFO0yy— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 6, 2020

Is there a generational talent in this upcoming draft? More than one? pic.twitter.com/dloUheRHsX— Around The NFL (@AroundTheNFL) March 6, 2020
O M G ... running with resistance. Incredible. How could anyone else do this? And with muscles!?!?!?. Oh my https://t.co/PmoCUQRom4— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) March 6, 2020
The #Colts won’t tender WR Marcus Johnson as a restricted free agent, so he’ll hit the market. Had six starts last year and a big game against the #Buccaneers (three catches for 105 yards and a TD) so he could garner decent interest.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 6, 2020
Pssh, who drafts a QB to sit for three years behind a future Hall of Famer? https://t.co/5a63eDCz3P— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 6, 2020
Completion percentage declined significantly from '18 to '19. I thought this was due to QB injuries, but over 2/3s of the league had a lower comp% in '19 than in '18.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 6, 2020
PHI, IND, CAR had the biggest dropoffs.
