Redskins Release DL Terrell McClain, A.J. Francis

Redskins Release DL Terrell McClain, A.J. Francis

The Washington Redskins have released DL Terrell McClain, who played only one sub-par year in Washington. I panned the signing at the time, writing that the former Dallas Cowboy was a mediocre player who was given far too much money, four years and $21 million. The writing was on the wall after McClain’s poor 2017 season, when the team renegotiated his contract to remove his guaranteed base salary for 2018. McClain will count $3.75 million against…

Also read Grading the Redskins 2018 Draft Class, Rounds 1-3 Round 4, 109 overall — S Troy Apke, Penn State I had to check myself after I saw this pick. It’s clear the Skins front office has a plan when drafting mid-round defensive backs — they go for athletes and then try to get them coached up. This is what the Skins did last year when they took Montae Nicholson in the fourth round of…

Also read Grading the Redskins 2018 Draft Class, Rounds 4-7 ROUND 1, 13 overall — DL Da’Ron Payne, Alabama I was pounding the table for Da’Ron Payne for months so I can’t claim to be anything but happy about this pick. His pass-rushing skills are mostly based on brute strength and athleticism at this point, but that’s why  DL coach Jim Tomsula is paid the big bucks. However, Payne should be an elite run-stopper from…

Redskins trade down in 2nd round, select RB Guice

The Washington Redskins held the 12th pick in the 2nd round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but declined to use it, instead sending the pick to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for the 27th pick in the 2nd round and a third round pick. With the 59th overall pick in the Draft, the Skins selected LSU RB Derrius Guice, a college superstar who saw his draft stock plummet in the hours before the Draft….

Redskins coming up in second round, trade down with 49ers

Redskins coming up in second round, trade down with 49ers

The Washington Redskins traded down in the second round with the SF 49ers.  Redskins traded the 44th pick to the 49ers in exchange for the 59th pick and picking up the 49ers third round pick, the 74th overall pick. The trade makes sense for the Redskins, as they always desired to gain a third round pick back, which they lost in the trade with Kansas City for QB Alex Smith. The big question is what…

Payne is 6’3″ and 311 pounds, with 33″ arms and capable of playing anywhere along the defensive line. When Allen left for the NFL, Payne took over as the dominant force on…

Redskins sign NT Phil Taylor

The Washington Redskins signed oft-injured nose tackle Phil Taylor, who turns 30 this weekend, to a one-year contract with undisclosed financial terms. The Redskins were counting on Taylor as their starting nose tackle in 2017, but he tore his left quadriceps in a preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals, ending his season. Taylor was a first round pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2011, but he has not played in an NFL game since 2014,…
