ESPN's John Keim reports the Redskins may not be willing to meet free agent ILB Zach Brown's asking price.

The Redskins want to keep Brown but there's a "decent gap" in contract talks between the sides. After settling for a prove-it deal, Brown is looking to cash in coming off another strong season. Brown could push for $7 million annually.

Redskins signed OG Orlando Franklin to a reserve/future contract.

Franklin spent most of the year out of the league before signing with the Redskins in October. He was released after one appearance, making him eligible for a futures deal. Franklin was a six-year starter prior to this season and provides veteran insurance with Trent Williams recovering from knee surgery. It's a low-risk flyer for Washington.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes impending free agent Terrelle Pryor is a "fit" for Cleveland.

Pryor left Cleveland last offseason, reportedly turning down the same deal the Browns gave Kenny Britt (four years, $32.5 million), and joined the Redskins only to catch 20 balls for 240 yards and one touchdown before being sent to I.R. in November. After the season, he replied to a Duke Johnson post on Instagram, saying he hoped to see him again in 2018. Pryor is a coach's pet of Hue Jackson, and a reunion makes all the sense in the world for both Pryor and the Browns.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim reports the team will try to re-sign impending free agent WR Ryan Grant.

Per Keim, the team likes the 27-year-old wideout "a lot." It's hardly a surprise, as Grant has been a teacher's pet-type under coach Jay Gruden. Consistently utilized as the No. 3 in 2017, Grant caught a career-high 45 passes. In reality, he is best served as a No. 4. Keim reports the team wants to add a burner opposite Josh Doctson.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's JP Finlay reports Jamison Crowder is open to a contract extension with the Redskins.

Crowder has one year left on his rookie deal at around the league minimum, so of course he'd be open to a new deal. He reportedly "likes it" playing in D.C. for coach Jay Gruden. Crowder had his best season in 2016 and took a step back this past year while playing through multiple injuries. Crowder really got off to a horrid start but was able to turn it on the second half of the year when Jordan Reed was out and Terrelle Pryor had been phased out of the offense.
Jan 10 - 10:24 AM

Redskins RT Morgan Moses' ankle operation will take place on Wednesday.

Moses' operation is not expected to come with a lengthy recovery timetable, suggesting it's just a scope. There's a chance he's ready for the start of OTAs.
Jan 9 - 6:54 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden suggested he wants the final decision on Kirk Cousins' long-term future to be made this offseason.

Cousins has played the last two seasons on the franchise tag and conceivably could be tagged again this spring despite what would be an exorbitant price, but Gruden appears ready to get off the roller coaster. "I think something has to be done," Gruden said. "I think you want to have a quarterback in here that’s going to be here. And hopefully that is Kirk, and if not, we have to move on and do what we have to do as an organization." Gruden was not at all effusive with his praise for Cousins following the season, but these comments suggest he would support the kind of big-money deal it will take to sign the quarterback long term.
Jan 8 - 9:31 AM

Kirk Cousins said he would sign his tender if the Redskins assign him the franchise tag in 2018.

"I need to work, I need to get better," said Cousins. "I'm okay with the one-year deal. It doesn't scare me a lot." Cousins has played under the franchise tag each of the last two seasons and seems content to keep going year-to-year with his contract. If the Redskins were to slap the franchise tag on Cousins for a third time, the quarterback would earn a whopping $34.47 million in 2018. Even if the Redskins had the cap space, it's unlikely they'd sink that much money into a quarterback turning 30 who has never even won a playoff game. As he has the last two offseasons, Cousins will again be the talk of free agency.
Jan 5 - 1:28 PM

Redskins signed QB Stephen Morris to a reserve/future contract.

A 2014 UDFA, Morris had an excellent preseason for the Colts. Even if the Redskins allow Kirk Cousins to walk in free agency, Morris' best-case scenario for 2018 will be No. 3 duties.
Jan 2 - 4:12 PM

Chris Thompson (broken leg) said he will be ready for training camp.

Thompson had surgery to repair a broken right fibula in early December. He was given a four-to-six month timetable after the procedure, which makes him questionable for the offseason program but a near lock to be ready for training camp. Washington has questions on early downs, but Thompson is locked in as the passing-down back.

Redskins signed RB Kenny Hilliard, OL Alex Balducci, DL Tavaris Barnes, TE Chris Bazile, OL Cameron Jefferson, OL John Kling, LB Alex McCalister, LB Cassanova McKinzy, DL Ondre Pipkins, DB James Sample and S Orion Stewart to reserve/future contracts.

A third-year seventh-rounder, Hilliard was briefly on the Redskins' 53-man roster this season. He took the rock four times for 11 yards in the preseason.
Jan 1 - 3:09 PM

Redskins signed CB Quinton Dunbar to a three-year, $10.5 million contract through 2020.

The deal apparently includes $5.25 million guaranteed. Dunbar had been headed to restricted free agency. Pressed into four starts on defense, Dunbar played 372 snaps in 2017. A 2015 UDFA, he has three career picks. He helps out on special teams in addition to providing depth on D. Benched as slot corner in 2016 before something of a 2017 rebound, Dunbar could get a starting opportunity in 2018.
Jan 1 - 2:46 PM

Redskins RT Morgan Moses will undergo ankle surgery this offseason.

Moses suffered an apparently serious ankle injury in Week 13, but he did not end up missing any games. He is expected to have the operation early in January, giving him a good shot to be healthy for the offseason program.

Kapri Bibbs rushed 12 times for 47 yards and caught 8-of-9 targets for 53 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Giants.

Samaje Perine left early in the first quarter, so it was all Bibbs in this one. He responded by leading the team in both receptions and receiving yards. Added to the active roster ahead of Week 15, Bibbs showed well enough over the final three games for the Redskins to bring him back, although they are unlikely to offer even the lowest tender to the restricted free agent.
Sun, Dec 31, 2017 06:54:00 PM

Vernon Davis hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 20 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Giants.

Davis came out of the gate hot, going over 55 yards in all but one game from Week 3 to Week 11, but the 33-year-old faded down the stretch. He caught just 10 passes total over the final six games and did not haul in more than two in any game during that span. Despite the late downturn, Davis has proven himself to be a valuable backup for oft-injured starter Jordan Reed and should fill that role again next season.
