Redskins signed third-round OT Geron Christian to a four-year contract.

Christian is an interesting prospect with long arms and solid measurables, but he needs to get stronger. The good news is he should get time to develop behind Trent Williams, Morgan Moses, and Ty Nsekhe. Washington now has their entire draft class under contract.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) said he is "very close" to 100 percent.

Williams is recovering from knee surgery he underwent in December. "I got the go-ahead to kind of do whatever I can without obviously being too aggressive on it," Williams said. "I’ll be ready before camp." Williams remains one of the best left tackles in the league, but he has not played 16 games since 2013 and just 22 the last two seasons. It would be a big boost to Washington's offensive line if he can get in a full season.

Redskins DE Stacy McGee is recovering from groin surgery.

The details are unclear, but the team is unsure if McGee will be ready for the start of training camp. McGee signed a five-year, $25 million deal in March.

Redskins CB Quinton Dunbar has been working with the first-team defense this spring.

Josh Norman is locked in one side, and veteran addition Orlando Scandrick seems destined for slot duties despite a down 2017 in Dallas. With the exit of Bashaud Breeland in free agency, that leaves a spot open for Dunbar, who signed a new three-year deal in January. 2017 third-rounder Fabian Moreau should push him hard for the job. Moreau comes with far greater upside.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden continued to praise WR Trey Quinn to end Washington's final OTA session.

"I’ve been very impressed with Trey," Gruden said. "He’s learning from Jamison [Crowder], which is good, but he can also line up in different spots, so Trey is a guy that we’re going to rely on to be able to play multiple spots." The final pick of this year’s draft, Quinn led the NCAA with 114 receptions in 2017. The initial excitement building for Quinn is a bit ahead of true rookie season expectations as he’ll still be playing behind Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson to begin 2018, but Quinn has made more than a positive impression in his first team activity. He should be a lock for the 53-man roster in a competition with Brian Quick, Maurice Harris and Robert Davis for the remaining wide receiver spots. Crowder is in the final year of his rookie contract, making Quinn a stash in dynasty formats.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said "it's been very exciting" watching second-round RB Derrius Guice catch the football.

Gruden said Guice is "more of a first-, second-down banger" after the draft, but the rookie's performance during the offseason program seems to be changing his mind. Chris Thompson should still be the primary third-down back, but it makes sense for Washington to get Guice involved in the passing game as well, especially on early downs. If he is used as a receiver, Guice will have a great shot to out-play his fourth-round ADP.

NBC Washington's Rich Tandler reports Jamison Crowder and Alex Smith displayed a very good rapport during Redskins OTAs.

Tandler adds that "Smith was very comfortable firing the ball in to Crowder during goal line work." Crowder was a hype sensation at this time last summer, but things got off to a real rocky start as he failed to top 50 yards in five of the first six games and also missed time with injury. Crowder went for 70-plus yards, including 123- and 141-yard efforts, Weeks 8-12 while nabbing all three of his touchdowns the final six weeks. Crowder's short-to-intermediate route tree meshes well with Smith's pass-game tendencies. We were maybe a year early on Crowder.
Jun 6 - 3:05 PM

Coach Jay Gruden raved about seventh-round WR Trey Quinn, calling him a "silent assassin" and a very "quarterback-friendly target."

Quinn was "Mr. Irrelevant" as the last pick in April's draft, but he's far from irrelevant and is even expected to make the team at this point. An LSU transfer, Quinn posted a 114/1,236/13 line at SMU opposite Courtland Sutton. He's a vacuum who catches everything and has exceptional quickness at 5'11/203. Quinn should endear himself to the coaches much like Ryan Grant.

Redskins DE Jonathan Allen (foot) says he's fully healthy.

Allen missed the final 11 games on IR to Lisfranc surgery. He was cleared to practice without limitations at OTAs. Allen graded out positively in five starts before going down last year. With Allen returning and the addition of first-round NT Da'Ron Payne, the Redskins are hoping for improved defensive line play.
Jun 2 - 2:22 PM

Josh Doctson said he's more comfortable and confident heading into 2018.

The 22nd overall pick in 2016, Doctson's rookie year was essentially lost due to ongoing Achilles' issues. He was able to stay healthy and appear in all 16 games last season and overtook Terrelle Pryor as a starter partway through the year. The numbers weren't all there, however, with Doctson posting a 35-502-6 line on 78 targets. The catch percentage needs to come up, and Doctson feels the comfort during a normal offseason for him recovering from no injuries.

According to ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim, Jordan Reed (toe) participated in agility drills at Wednesday's OTA session.

Per Keim, Reed looked "fine" while doing the side-field drills. He's not participating in team work after missing most of last season with injuries and then needing surgery on his toes after the year. Reed is incredibly difficult to trust but remains one of the premier Tier 2 fantasy options at a weak position.

Redskins waived/injured OG Arie Kouandjio.

He'll revert to injured reserve after going down with a torn quad at OTAs. The Redskins signed OL Isaiah Williams to replace Kouandjio.
May 23 - 6:06 PM

Rob Kelley was the first running back through position drills at Wednesday's OTAs.

Kelley was followed by sophomore Samaje Perine and then rookie Derrius Guice. We wouldn't read much, if anything, into this, as the Redskins are likely going by veteran status on the first day of workouts. Kelley spent much of the second half of last season on I.R. with a high-ankle sprain and wasn't very good before the injury. Perine wasn't much better in relief before he also got hurt. This is going to be Guice's backfield on early downs much sooner than later.
May 23 - 12:16 PM

Redskins DB DeAngelo Hall retired after 14 seasons in the NFL.

The No. 8 overall pick of the 2004 draft, Hall was a Falcon for his first four seasons, earning Pro-Bowl nods in 2005 and 2006, and had a brief and ill-fated stay with the Raiders, but he will be remembered as a Redskin. Hall spent the final 10 seasons of his career in Washington, earning an additional Pro-Bowl honor in 2010 and recording 23 interceptions from 2008-13. Injuries limited Hall to just 22 games over his final four seasons, but he still put together a quality career. Hall is reportedly mulling TV and front office job offers.
May 14 - 11:51 AM

Redskins OG Arie Kouandjio suffered a torn quad and will miss the season.

Kouandjio was among the Redskins' final cuts last summer but had to be brought back at midseason when injuries wreaked havoc on the offensive line. He started six games at left guard, playing 424 uneven snaps. Washington is bringing back essentially the same offensive line group it had in 2017.
