Redskins re-signed G/C Tony Bergstrom.

A jack of many trades but master of none, Bergstrom did make three starts for the Skins last year after he was signed around midseason. He can play both guard spots and center but is best utilized in a swing-reserve role.

Redskins exercised RG Brandon Scherff's fifth-year option for 2019.

This is as no-brainer as a move can get. The No. 5 overall pick in 2015, Scherff is one of the best young guards in the league and already has two Pro Bowls under his belt. Washington will likely look to extend Scherff next spring.

Redskins re-signed OT Ty Nsekhe to a one-year, $2.914 million contract.

Nsekhe is a valuable swing option who has started 11 games over the last three seasons. He should play a similar role this year.

Redskins acquired QB Kevin Hogan from the Browns for a 2018 sixth-round pick.

Cleveland is also sending a sixth-round pick, so Washington only moves down 17 spots. It's a low-cost flyer for the Redskins that adds some backup competition for Colt McCoy. Hogan made eight appearances (one start) in the Browns' QB carousel over the last two years, throwing more interceptions (7) than touchdowns (4). He's not a lock for a roster spot.
Apr 6 - 5:44 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns have given QB Kevin Hogan permission to seek a trade.

Hogan is currently third on the depth chart behind new additions Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton, and he will fall even further once the Browns select a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick. Cleveland received a conditional seventh-round pick for Cody Kessler last month. They will be hard-pressed to get even that for Hogan.
Apr 5 - 8:51 AM

Redskins re-signed NT Phil Taylor to a one-year contract.

Taylor, who hasn't appeared in a regular season game since 2014, missed all of 2017 with a torn quad. Former first-rounders get far more second chances than other players. Taylor turns 30 in four days.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Jordan Reed had a "procedure done on his toes."

It explains why he is not expected to participate in OTAs. Reed ended the season on injured reserve because of a hamstring issue, but he was limited by a toe problem during training camp last year. Hopefully this procedure fixes the issue for good, but even if it does, Reed will remain one of the biggest injury risks in fantasy. The tight end has never played more than 14 games in a season.

Redskins DE Jonathan Allen (foot) isn't sure if he'll be ready for OTAs.

"I would like to think so, but I mean, honestly, there’s no way of telling at this point," said Allen when asked if he'd see a full workload in OTAs. The 2017 first-rounder impressed in five games last year before landing on IR with a Lisfranc injury. The Redskins will surely err on the side of caution with Allen, though the talented 23-year-old should be ready well in advance of Week 1.
Apr 1 - 12:51 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said RT Morgan Moses (ankle) will not be ready for OTAs.

Neither will LT Trent Williams (knee). Moses underwent an operation on his ankle in January. He should be ready for training camp.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden does not expect Jordan Reed (hamstring) to participate in OTAs.

Reed ended last season on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury, but that issue should have healed by now, suggesting he underwent some kind of surgery. He missed time last August because of a lingering toe issue. Reed was limited to six games last season.

Redskins signed OLB Pernell McPhee.

McPhee had an offer from the Redskins for nearly a week. He couldn't find anyone to better it. McPhee is coming off a disastrous three-year stint in Chicago after signing a high-dollar deal in 2015. Going on 30, he will work to earn situational pass rusher duties this summer.
Mar 26 - 3:36 PM

Free agent OLB Pernell McPhee is visiting the Falcons on Wednesday.

McPhee has an offer in hand from the Redskins, according to Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz, but it must not be enough to keep McPhee from making other visits. In Atlanta, McPhee could replace Adrian Clayborn, who left as a free agent and signed with the Patriots. McPhee turns 30 later this year.
Mar 21 - 10:26 AM

Redskins signed CB Orlando Scandrick to a two-year contract.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal has a max value of $10 million. Scandrick's play has slipped in recent years, primarily due to injuries. He just turned 31 years old and will replace Kendall Fuller as Washington's slot corner. Fantasy leaguers should proactively start slot receivers against the Skin this year.
Mar 19 - 2:22 PM

Free agent LB Pernell McPhee is visiting the Redskins on Monday.

McPhee joins a long list of defensive players the Redskins have played host to during free agency. This is the first time the former Bear has been linked to any team since being released in February. He appeared in just 36 games the last three seasons with Chicago, recording 14 sacks. He will be 29 when the season begins and is likely looking at a low base contract if someone gives him a second chance as an outside pass rusher.
Mar 18 - 9:58 PM

Free agent CB Orlando Scandrick will visit with the Redskins on Sunday.

Scandrick has spent his entire nine-year career in the NFC East. Washington needs corners after moving on from Bashaud Breeland and makes sense as a landing spot. They've also been linked to Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
