  OL Tony Bergstrom was re-signed by the Redskins, the team announced Monday..Bergstrom, 31, was signed by the Redskins on Oct. 23, 2017, after he was released by the Baltimore Ravens. He played in four games for the Ravens last season and nine for the Redskins. All three of his starts last season came with the Redskins.


Apr 16 2018 - Brandon Scherff
  G Brandon Scherff had his fifth-year option picked up by the Redskins, the team announced Monday. Scherff, 26, is now under contract through the 2019 season, and, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Scherff's $12.5 million option for next season would make him the league's second-highest-paid guard. The No. 5 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Scherff has already been selected to two Pro Bowls in his three pro seasons. He has started every game in which he has appeared since joining the Redskins, giving him 46 regular-season starts and one postseason start.


Apr 16 2018 - Ty Nsekhe
  OT Ty Nsekhe signed his second-round tender with the Washington Redskins, the team announced Monday. Terms were not disclosed by the team, but NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported that the versatile offensive lineman is slated to earn $2.914 million in 2018.


Apr 13 2018 - Otha Peters
  LB Otha Peters was released by the Washington Redskins on Friday.


Apr 6 2018 - Kevin Hogan
  QB Kevin Hogan was acquired by the Washington Redskins along with a 2018 sixth-round pick (No. 205 overall) from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2018 sixth-round pick (No. 188 overall). The 6-foot-3, 218-pound Hogan was drafted out of Stanford by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fifth round (No. 162 overall) in the 2016 NFL Draft. He never played for the Chiefs and after being released he signed with the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 5, 2016. Hogan appeared in eight games with one start for Cleveland, completing 60 of 101 passes for 621 yards and four touchdowns, in addition to rushing 18 times for 176 yards with one touchdown. At Stanford, he holds career records for 10,634 total offensive yards, 36 victories by a quarterback and 1,249 rushing yards by a quarterback.


Apr 5 2018 - Kevin Hogan
  QB Kevin Hogan has requested and received permission for his agent to seek a trade from the Cleveland Browns, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Hogan is bidding to join fellow quarterback Cody Kessler in finding his way out of Cleveland, which traded the latter to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week for a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick.


Apr 3 2018 - Phil Taylor
  DL Phil Taylor Sr. was re-signed by the Washington Redskins, the team announced Tuesday. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but the Washington Post reported is a one-year deal. Injuries have plagued Taylor's career. He was scheduled to be a starter for the Redskins last season before he suffered a torn left quadriceps in a preseason game that required surgery and ended his season. The 337-pound Taylor, who turns 30 on Saturday, has not played in a regular-season NFL game since 2014, when he was with the Cleveland Browns.


Apr 1 2018 - Josh Doctson
  WR Josh Doctson has high expections from coach Jay Gruden. Doctson, who recorded 35 receptions for 502 yards and six touchdowns, likely be featured as the top wide receiver this season with the departure of Terrelle Pryor. "The route tree, the ability to line up in different spots, I think Josh will get more opportunities to make plays on 50-50 type balls, which is Josh's strength," Gruden said. "Josh is not a guy, and we knew that coming in, that's going to get five or six yards of separation right away. He's a guy that builds up his speed; he can run, he can adjust to the ball like no other, 42-inch vertical was documented, 41, whatever it is. So that's where he gets the separation, by leaping and adjusting to the ball."


Apr 1 2018 - Jordan Reed
  TE Jordan Reed has great expectations this season, according to coach Jay Gruden. As he has been throughout his career, Reed was hampered by injuries in 2017 while Doctson made strides last year after missing nearly all of his rookie season in 2016 with an Achilles injury. Reed was limited to a career-low six games until going on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. But it was the toe injury during training camp that caused the overcompensation and eventually the strained hamstring. "Jordan Reed is important," Gruden said. "I mean, I think in his absence last year, Vernon Davis did some good things and (Jeremy) Sprinkle got a lot of work there towards the end of the year, which will be helpful to his progression as a player. So that's good news. But Jordan is a special guy. There's not many tight ends in pro football that can do what he can do as far as running the option routes across the middle and breaking people down and then lining up on the outside and beating people deep, across the middle. He's a special talent. He makes us better, without a doubt."


Apr 1 2018 - Jonathan Allen
  DE Jonathan Allen admits to making progress, but he's not sure he'll be ready for a full workload when Organized Team Activities begin in a few weeks. Allen recorded 10 tackles and one sack in five games during his rookie season before being placed on injured reserve with a Lisfranc foot injury. "I'm going to be honest, the OTAs they start like end of April, and this will be my first time, so I would like to think so, but I mean, honestly, there's no way of telling at this point," Allen said, via the team's website. "I feel like I'm going to be in a good spot come OTAs, so I'm excited for that, and right now, I'm just taking it day by day just trying to grind."


Mar 26 2018 - Pernell McPhee
  LB Pernell McPhee signed with the Washington Redskins, the team announced on Monday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed for McPhee, who visited with the Redskins last Monday and was offered a contract a day later. McPhee is joining the Redskins after spending the previous three seasons with the Chicago Bears, who signed him to a five-year contract in 2015.


Mar 16 2018 - Zach Brown
  LB Zach Brown re-signed with the Washington Redskins, the team announced. Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the Redskins, but multiple media outlets reported that it was a three-year, $24 million contract. Brown, 28, has played on one-year contracts each of the past two seasons. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2016, when he had 97 solo tackles, 4.0 sacks and one interception while starting all 16 games for the Buffalo Bills.


Mar 16 2018 - Zach Brown
  LB Zach Brown reportedly re-signed with the Redskins by reaching agreement on a three-year, $24 million deal, according to multiple media outlets. Brown, 28, has played on one-year contracts each of the past two seasons. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2016, when he had 97 solo tackles, 4.0 sacks and one interception while starting all 16 games for the Buffalo Bills. Last season with the Redskins, he started all 13 games in which he played and collected 84 solo tackles and 2.5 sacks.


Mar 15 2018 - Paul Richardson
  WR Paul Richardson signed a contract with the Washington Redskins, the team announced on Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the Redskins, but multiple outlets reported on Tuesday that the contract is for five years and $40 million -- with $20 million in guarantees.


Mar 14 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith became a Redskin on Wednesday when his trade from the Kansas City Chiefs became official. The deal could not be announced until Wednesday, when the new league year began, although reports surfaced that Smith was heading to Washington on Jan. 31. Smith reportedly is getting a four-year contract according to ESPN, which also reported the extension when the trade was initially reported. He will be introduced at a press conference on Thursday.


Mar 12 2018 - Ty Nsekhe
  OT Ty Nsekhe was retained Monday by the Washington Redskins, who announced they placed a second-round tender on the restricted free agent. Nsekhe, 32, has appeared in 42 career regular season games with 11 starts. In 2017, he appeared in 11 games for Washington, making five starts in the final six weeks of the season.


Mar 12 2018 - Dustin Hopkins
  K Dustin Hopkins has re-signed with the Washington Redskins, the team announced Monday. Hopkins, who could have been an unrestricted free agent, has made 83.9 percent of his field goal attempts (73 of 87) with the Redskins. He was 14 of 17 last season, missing half of the season because of a strained hip muscle.


Mar 10 2018 - Paul Richardson
  WR Paul Richardson's breakout season may be too costly for the Seattle Seahawks and he alluded to it in a social media post Saturday. Richardson is set to become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday after making 44 catches for 703 yards and scoring six touchdowns while starting 13 of 16 games. All were career highs for Richardson, who recorded two touchdowns in his first three seasons. Last season, Richardson was paid roughly $1.5 million in the final season of his rookie contract. According to ESPN 710 in Seattle, the Seahawks are unwilling to pay more than $5.5 million to retain Richardson. That report and with free agency days away, prompted Richardson to tweet: "One thing I do know is I had a ball in Seattle!"


Mar 6 2018 - Deshazor Everett
  S Deshazor Everett was signed to a multiyear contract. Everett started eight of the 14 games in which he played in 2017 and recorded five passes defensed and one forced fumble. He got his only career interception in 2016 when he played in 16 games for Washington but had no starts.


Feb 27 2018 - Pernell McPhee
  LB Pernell McPhee and safety Quintin Demps were released on Monday. By releasing McPhee and Demps, the Bears have approximately $62.7 million in salary cap space with two-plus weeks before free agency begins on March 14. Cutting McPhee results in about $7.1 million in cap space and shedding Demps gives the Bears about $3 million in cap space.


Feb 17 2018 - DeAngelo Hall
  S DeAngelo Hall said he would welcome back fellow Washington Redskins safety Su'a Cravens, but there's still an element of trust that needs to be addressed. The NFL granted Cravens his request for reinstatement earlier this week. The Redskins had placed the 22-year-old Cravens on the reserve/left squad list in September after leaving the team, which left him ineligible to play for the entire season. "I definitely think there's room for Su'a on this roster, but he has to prove to the guys in that locker room that he's here for the right reasons, you know what I mean, and he wants to fight with them and he wants to go to battle," Hall said in an interview with Washington's 106.7 The Fan, via CBS DC. "Guys have to believe he's gonna be able to be counted on, and I think this organization has to believe that, because there's nothing worse than having a guy that you have bled with and fought with and trained with, and when it's time to go to battle, they walk away. That's a tough thing for a lot of guys in this locker room to just look past."


Jan 31 2018 - D.J. Swearinger
  S D.J. Swearinger sounded off over social media on Wednesday after learning that the team included cornerback Kendall Fuller as part of the agreed-upon trade for quarterback Alex Smith. After initially wondering whether Tuesday's deal -- which included the Redskins receiving a third-round pick -- was a joke, Swearinger's comments over Twitter became more pointed. "Never Saw Any (expletive) Like This In My Life!!" Swearinger tweeted. "Idc who i rub wrong because you never sat in a meeting nor put in work with my dawg!! People say they wanna win right but you throw away your best defender!?!? Somebody you can set a standard with?!?! #Defense will win championships!!" Swearinger also wrote that the Redskins took a "Major Step down from the best slot corner in The Game!!" before deleting both tweets.


Jan 25 2018 - Mason Foster
  LB Mason Foster signed a contract extension, the team announced Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the Redskins, but NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported -- citing Foster's agent -- that the two-year deal was worth up to $7 million. Foster was limited to playing in just five games this season after sustaining a torn labrum in his shoulder in Week 2. He recorded 31 tackles, an interception and half a sack in 2017.
