ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim does not view seventh-round pick Keith Marshall as a threat to Matt Jones' workload this season.

A size-speed specimen who spent most of his college career injured, Marshall went back on the shelf this spring after running behind someone named "Mack Brown" at rookie camp. Marshall is talented enough to make up ground quickly in August, but he hasn't given any reason to buy into him as an NFL player just yet.

Redskins waived/failed physical DB Kyshoen Jarrett.

Unless he is released with an injury settlement later, Jarrett will likely spend 2016 on the Redskins' injured reserve list. A sixth-round steal out of Virginia Tech last year, Jarrett shined as a hybrid safety-slot corner before suffering from nerve damage in his shoulder and neck. He was reported to have lost 30 pounds in April. There is fear Jarrett's career is in danger.

Redskins OLB Junior Galette has suffered another torn Achilles' tendon, and is done for the season.

Galette's second year as a Redskin will end the same as his first: With zero snaps. Per PFT, Galette tore his right Achilles'. It was Galette's left Achilles' that cost him all of 2015. Headed into what would have been his age-28 season, Galette's career is now in serious doubt. It's an on-paper blow for the Redskins' thin pass rush, but realistically DC Joe Barry should never have been counting heavily on Galette considering his off-field and injury histories.

Redskins TE Derek Carrier (knee) could open the season on reserve/PUP.

Carrier is seven months removed from tearing his ACL. He isn't going to be rushed back with Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen returning. Carrier will compete for a backup role when healthy.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim projects Jamison Crowder as a starter ahead of first-rounder Josh Doctson.

The Redskins have spent the offseason raving about their second-year slot man, leaving another obstacle for Doctson to hurdle as he hunts for rookie year snaps. We still wouldn't be surprised if Doctson eventually nudged by Crowder, or even Pierre Garcon, in three-receiver sets, but these aren't artificial hoops. Doctson should be viewed more as a Dynasty league stash than immediate re-draft contributor in fantasy leagues.

Profootballtalk.com reports Redskins GM Scot McCloughan did not meet Kirk Cousins' asking price in long-term talks because McCloughan believes he can find a cheaper replacement for Cousins "at some point in the next year or two."

In other words, the Skins view Cousins as a replacement-level quarterback. Specifically, Florio wrote McCloughan "believes he can find a comparable quarterback who will be much cheaper than Cousins, at some point in the next year or two." Florio reported Cousins wanted $44 million guaranteed at signing, far more than the $24 million McCloughan was willing to commit. As much as any quarterback in the league, Cousins has a ton riding on the 2016 season.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Redskins' best long-term offer to Kirk Cousins before Friday was worth $16 million per year.

Friday was the deadline for teams to sign franchise players long term. GM Scot McCloughan wasn't willing to exceed $16 million annually and was offering only $24 million guaranteed. Letting Cousins play out this season on his $19.953 million tag could be best for both parties. The Redskins will get another full year to evaluate him and Cousins will have another season of tape with one of the NFL's top pass-catcher corps, which he could conceivably parlay into a monster deal with Washington or someone else in 2017.
Jul 17 - 1:04 PM

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler reports the Redskins will not reach a deal with franchise player Kirk Cousins before Friday's deadline.

He'll become the first quarterback to play under the franchise tag since Drew Brees in 2005. The Redskins reportedly offered Cousins $16 million annually with up to $24 million guaranteed but that wasn't enough to close the gap. He's seeking a deal that would pay him at least $44 million over the first two seasons. The 27-year-old will earn $19.953 under the franchise tag in 2016.
Jul 15 - 3:28 PM

Profootballtalk confirms the Redskins are not expected to reach an extension with franchise player Kirk Cousins ahead of Friday's deadline.

PFT reported as such last week, and nothing has changed over the past seven days. Cousins is betting on himself, and the Redskins are making him prove his 2015 was not a fluke. It's a sensible strategy from both sides.
Jul 14 - 4:38 PM

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler is "100-percent confident" Spencer Long will open the season as the Redskins' starting left guard.

Fellow CSN Mid-Atlantic writer Tarik El-Bashir disagrees, believing instead Shawn Lauvao (ankle, foot) will earn the starting job. Lauvao did not participate at any point in the offseason program, however, and there are serious questions about his health coming off five surgeries to repair various lower-leg issues. 2015 fourth-rounder Arie Kouandjio could also get a look in training camp.
Jul 9 - 1:49 PM

A source with "knowledge of the situation" tells Profootballtalk there will be no long-term deal between the Redskins and franchise player Kirk Cousins before the July 15 deadline.

Per the source, even further negotiations are unlikely. This has been the expectation for months. Cousins is comfortable playing under his $19.953 million tender, while the Redskins — wisely — want to see him repeat his 2015 before handing out a cornerstone player contract. Cousins turns 28 next month.
Jul 8 - 1:03 AM

The Washington Post reports Redskins OLB Junior Galette "(looked) explosive" in padless offseason practices.

Galette is questionable for the start of training camp, but has been progressing without setbacks. GM Scot McCloughan said his "explosion" was already back in April. Galette will be 11 months removed from going down when Washington reports. Galette notched 10 sacks in 2014 for the Saints.
Jul 5 - 2:51 PM

The Washington Post's Mike Jones reports franchise-tagged QB Kirk Cousins and the Redskins have "made no strides toward an agreement."

Jones reports the Redskins will make another push before the July 15 deadline, but "there’s not a high level of optimism that those efforts will prove successful." ESPN's Adam Schefter agrees, recently saying the deal will prove "too difficult" to get done. Franchise tagged players tend to sign long-term deals on deadline day, but this situation is trending in the other direction. It would not be surprising if Cousins played out this year under the tag.
Jul 5 - 11:29 AM

RealRedskins.com believes Shawn Lauvao could be released if he doesn't win left guard duties.

The injury-prone veteran is competing with Spencer Long. Lauvao underwent five surgeries after landing on injured reserve with a foot issue last year, and struggled mightily before going down. Lauvao will probably be eased into camp, giving Long a leg up.
Jul 4 - 2:20 PM

CSN Mid-Atlantic reports David Bruton is getting the "first crack" at the Redskins' strong safety job.

Rich Tandler said Duke Ihenacho would have to be "clearly superior" in training camp to unseat Bruton, who started just eight games in his seven years with the Broncos. He does have a fourth-round pedigree, however, and showed well as a short stint as a starter before breaking his leg last season. DeAngelo Hall is locked in at free safety.
