Growing up in a military family, @RiverboatRonHC knows that “it’s all about the mission.” With the #Redskins, that means building a sustainable winning culture as they pursue Super Bowl championships. #Redskins https://t.co/T10MiYz4y0— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 20, 2020

But where does he fit in with Fuller, Darby, Moreau, and now Colvin on the roster?— Billy G. (@Billy_el_flaco) May 20, 2020
As for the changes in the secondary, Collins said he'll miss Josh Norman and "Dunny," but he's looking forward to the new group. Knows a few of them already, and for the kids he's told them his line is open so ask away.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) May 20, 2020
Collins thinks Young's addition along with a defensive line rotation with really help Ryan Kerrigan: "When Ryan has fresh legs, we all know what he can do."— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) May 20, 2020
Had this chat with coaching buddy yesterday. Single high safety league. 12 personnel gives you better angles in run game and helps you handle force player with bigger body. Plus, you can play matchups in passing game. It’s going to be popular. https://t.co/rWcbIAWIiA— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) May 20, 2020

More on what to expect from Jay Gruden's offense ⤵
If the NFL needed to adjust the start date, I've seen the following plan proposed:— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) May 19, 2020
- wk 1 becomes wk 18
- wk 2 game slots into prior bye wk
- wk 3 & 4 are cancelled
Start date shifts back 1 month & season is 14 wks long.
This absolutely benefits some teams more & hurts others.
The Chiefs would no longer have to play in Baltimore on Monday night nor host the Patriots.— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) May 19, 2020
The Redskins would no longer face the Browns & Ravens.
On the other end the Jaguars would lose their two easiest opponents (Bengals & Dolphins).
Arizona would lose the Lions & Panthers. pic.twitter.com/ELgRurpDul

The lawsuit claims the woman previously asked the NFL player why he wore a face mask. He said it’s due to the growing COVID-19 concerns. The woman said he looked “frightening” with the mask on.— Master (@MasterTes) May 20, 2020
The NFL player also claims the woman was intoxicated and taking perscription pills.
