 Latest Redskins Player Notes
Jul 18 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins told WFJK-FM on Tuesday that he has no qualms about playing on a year-to-year contract with the Washington Redskins, one day after the deadline passed for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term deals. Cousins, who will make $23.9 million this season, and the Redskins can't negotiate a long-term deal until the season ends by virtue of being unable to come to an agreement by Monday's deadline. After the deadline, Redskins president Bruce Allen delivered a statement that said the team offered Cousins a contract with $53 million in fully guaranteed money -- and $72 million guaranteed for injury. Cousins threw for 4,917 yards with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2016 and also posted a 97.2 passer rating last season. Cousins' 12,113 yards in five seasons with Washington ranks sixth on the franchise's all-time passing yards list. He is 239 yards behind Billy Kilmer for fifth.


Jul 17 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins became the first signal caller to play under the franchise tag for a second consecutive season after failing to sign a long-term deal. Cousins, who will earn $23.9 million this season, and the Redskins can't negotiate a long-term deal until the season ends by virtue of being unable to come to an agreement by Monday's deadline. The 28-year-old is open to working a deal with the Redskins after this season, a source familiar with the situation told ESPN's Adam Washington offered Cousins a five-year deal worth approximately $20 million per season earlier in the offseason with "low guarantees," ESPN reported, citing a source.


Jul 16 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins is not expected to sign a long-term deal by Monday's deadline to sign franchise players to long-term contracts. If Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline passes with no long-term contract, Cousins is open to doing a deal with the Redskins after this season, a source familiar with the situation told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Redskins could make a last-minute push to get a deal done with Cousins, who was franchised for the second consecutive year. Cousins, who turns 29 on Aug. 19, wants to play this season under his franchise tag, worth $23.94 million.


Jun 14 2017 - DeAngelo Hall
  S DeAngelo Hall agreed to restructure his contract and take a pay cut to return to the team for a 14th NFL season. The 33-year-old Hall was set to make $4.25 million as a base salary in 2017 and had a salary cap hit of $5.1 million. He is recovering from a torn ACL and may not be able to participate in training camp. Hall told reporters at the Redskins' facility on Wednesday that he agreed to the pay cut this week. He did not share the details of the new deal, but the Washington Post reported that his salary will decrease to $2.3 million, with a $500,000 bonus if he makes the Pro Bowl.


May 31 2017 - Terrelle Pryor
  WR Terrelle Pryor admits he and quarterback Kirk Cousins will have to work on their timing throughout the offseason. Cousins has never had a target as big as the 6-foot-4 Pryor. So far, so good. On Wednesday, they tested Washington's cornerbacks early. Pryor went deep and made a leaping catch for a touchdown over Bashaud Breeland during 11-on-11 drills. "Terrelle is a different guy when he is running," Gruden said. "He is such a long strider that it doesn't look like he is running that fast. So we have underthrown him like a dozen times already in two weeks. So it is just a matter of the quarterbacks getting used to it. Once he gets his feet churning, he's fast, so they've got to trust that he's going to go get it."


May 26 2017 - Fabian Moreau
  CB Fabian Moreau, a third-round pick, signed with the Washington Redskins on Friday. Moreau, 23, is recovering from a torn pectoral muscle he suffered at his pro day in March. He is expected to make a full return to the field sometime in late August or early September. The cornerback out of UCLA was projected to be selected in the first or second round before the injury and went 81st overall to the Redskins. In 2016, he made 31 tackles with 12 passes defensed and two interceptions for the Bruins.


May 24 2017 - Kendall Fuller
  CB Kendall Fuller, overwhelmed at times as a rookie, is another year removed from microfracture knee surgery early in his junior year at Virginia Tech in 2015. That limited his work last offseason and the Redskins kept close watch on their third-round draft pick. He had his struggles after taking over as the slot corner, though. On Wednesday, Fuller alternated between slot corner, outside corner, and free safety. He made a nice read and breakup on a 50-yard pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins to wide receiver Terrelle Pryor in the end zone during 11-on-11 drills.


May 24 2017 - Trent Williams
  LT Trent Williams skipped the OTAs this week. The Redskins aren't concerned. Williams is doing the same in Oklahoma. He recently signed a lucrative contract extension and so his absence isn't related to a holdout over money. He is expected back for next week's OTAs.


May 24 2017 - Jordan Reed
  TE Jordan Reed skipped the first week of OTAs. The Redskins aren't too concerned, however. Reed chose to remain in Miami, where he's working with a personal trainer. He recently signed lucrative contract extensions and so his absence isn't related to a holdout over money. Reed is expected back for next week's OTAs.


May 24 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins echoed recent comments from team president Bruce Allen that contract talks remain "positive" as the July 15 deadline approaches. Cousins will play under the franchise tag for a second straight season ($23.9 million) if he and the team do not agree to a new long-term deal. That makes the next seven weeks critical to his future with the franchise. "It's a process," Cousins said. "Nothing happens right now. And as one person told me -- deadlines do deals. That's just kind of a rule in negotiating. And so why would something happen way before a deadline? It just doesn't make sense. I'm not in a hurry. They're not in a hurry. We'll just see how things go. I'm being patient."


May 24 2017 - Junior Galette
  OLB Junior Galette appears ahead of schedule in his return from a second consecutive torn Achilles tendon. He hasn't played since 2014 with the New Orleans Saints. Galette tore his left Achilles in August 2015, shortly after signing with Washington, and his right Achilles just before training camp last July. But on Wednesday, Galette took some snaps in 11-on-11 drills with the nickel package. Gruden had said Galette was unlikely to participate in team drills during OTAs. "Yeah, I wasn't expecting to see Junior a whole lot this time of year, really. We're trying to get him healthy," Gruden said. "But he's been out there working and he's done a nice job. "He knows he's got a little ways to go, but you can still see that he's got the quick twitch, which you really need off the edge. He can bend, and now as far as stamina goes, he's going to continue to work to get in shape."


May 22 2017 - Matt Jones
  RB Matt Jones was not at the first organized team activities session this week. Jones, a third-round pick in 2015 and the starting running back at the beginning of last season, was not active after Week 7 in 2016. The Redskins also drafted a running back this year (Oklahoma's Samaje Perine). Fumbles have overshadowed Jones' contributions during his first two seasons. He has eight fumbles (six lost) on 243 carries during 20 NFL games. That includes one inside the 5-yard line last Oct. 23 at Detroit -- a game the Redskins lost 20-17 that ultimately cost them a playoff berth. "That's something that Matt Jones will have to answer," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. "This is a voluntary deal, as we all know. I can't force the issue on anybody. If he's disgruntled in any way, shape or form, it's news to me."


Apr 27 2017 - Morgan Moses
  RT Morgan Moses agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Washington Redskins that will make the former third-round pick one of the highest-paid at the position. Moses, a 2014 draft pick out of West Virginia, could average more than $10 million per year on his new contract, which would rate behind only Lane Johnson of the Philadelphia Eagles among right tackles. Johnson makes $11.252 million per year, ahead of Detroit Lions right tackle Ricky Wagner ($9.5 million) and Bryan Bulaga of the Green Bay Packers ($6.75 million).


Apr 24 2017 - Will Compton
  LB Will Compton signed his tender contract, the Redskins announced Monday. Compton's deal for the 2017 season is worth $1.8 million, according to ESPN. Compton, 27, was voted the team's defensive captain prior to last season. The 6-1, 238-pound Compton registered a career-high 104 tackles in 2016 -- his third full season with the Redskins. He had five passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and one interception while starting 15 games.


Apr 21 2017 - Chris Thompson
  RB Chris Thompson, a restricted free agent, signed his contract tender from the Washington Redskins. Friday was the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams, but Thompson did not sign with anyone else since being tendered by the Redskins. The 5-foot-8, 195-pound Thompson has appeared in 35 career regular-season games since joining the Redskins as a fifth-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft out of Florida State. In his first four NFL seasons, Thompson had 106 carries for 584 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He also caught 90 passes for 616 yards and five TDs.


Apr 14 2017 - Trent Murphy
  LB Trent Murphy will miss the first four games of the 2017 season due to a suspension, the NFL announced in a statement on Friday. Murphy was suspended for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. The 26-year-old will be allowed to participate in offseason camp and preseason games. Murphy recorded nine sacks in 2016 -- the most productive season of his three-year career. The Stanford product owns 15 career sacks and 112 combined tackles.


Apr 11 2017 - Junior Galette
  LB Junior Galette was arrested Friday and charged with disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police during a spring break festival. Galette, 29, was allegedly in a fight and ran away from police during a concert at MGM Park during the annual Black Beach Weekend in Biloxi, Miss. He was released after posting a $500 bond. "We are aware of the incident. We are gathering information and will refrain from making any further comment," Redskins senior vice president of communications Tony Wyllie told ESPN.com in a statement.


Apr 3 2017 - Zach Brown
  LB Zach Brown agreed to a one-year deal with Washington. Brown enjoyed a Pro Bowl season with the Buffalo Bills in 2016, collecting a team-high 149 tackles that ranked second in the NFL. The 27-year-old also had four sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles. Brown could could play a significant role in upgrading a Washington defense that struggled against the run last season.


Mar 24 2017 - Brian Quick
  WR Brian Quick signed with the Washington Redskins as an unrestricted free agent on Friday. Quick is the second free agent receiver to sign with the Redskins this month, joining Terrelle Pryor. The Redskins lost starting wide receivers DeSean Jackson (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (San Francisco 49ers) via free agency. Quick, 27, is entering his sixth NFL season after originally entering the league as a second-round pick (33rd overall) of the St. Louis Rams in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Appalachian State. He appeared in 67 games (23 starts) with the Rams, compiling 105 receptions for 1,499 yards and 10 touchdowns.


Mar 20 2017 - Ty Nsekhe
  OT Ty Nsekhe was re-signed by the Redskins. Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team for Nsekhe, who started four games at left tackle last season while Trent Williams served a suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Nsekhe, who was an exclusive rights free agent, appeared in all 16 games last season.


Mar 16 2017 - Chris Carter
  LB Chris Carter signed a contract with the Washington Redskins on Thursday. Carter split last season with the Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts.


Mar 15 2017 - Vinston Painter
  OT Vinston Painter re-signed with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday. Painter has appeared in eight regular-season games in the NFL -- five with the Redskins last season and three with the Cleveland Browns in 2014. A sixth-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos out of Virginia Tech in 2013, the 6-4, 322-pound Painter was claimed by Washington on waivers last preseason.


Mar 15 2017 - Ziggy Hood
  DE Ziggy Hood re-signed with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday. The 6-foot-3, 305-pound Hood appeared in all 16 games (starting 14) for the Redskins last season, registering 33 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. Hood, 30, has appeared in 114 career regular-season games since the Pittsburgh Steelers selected him in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He has recorded 13.5 sacks among his 197 career tackles.


Mar 14 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins denies he asked Redskins owner Dan Snyder for a trade, saying he only sought to find out the team's plans for him. The Redskins placed the franchise tag on the 28-year-old quarterback for the second consecutive season, and Cousins signed the $24 million tag last Friday. But reports indicated Cousins had asked Snyder to be dealt. "I did inquire if there was any interest in trading me to get an understanding of their perspective," Cousins told ESPN. "The answer I got back was Mr. Snyder communicated his belief in me and desire for me to remain a Redskin."


Mar 10 2017 - Terrelle Pryor
  WR Terrelle Pryor Sr. signed with the Washington Redskins on Friday. Pryor signed a reported one-year deal worth a $8 million. Last season with the Cleveland Browns, the 27-year-old Pryor appeared in a career-high 16 games with 15 starts at wide receiver. He led the Browns in every receiving category, recording 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. He added eight rushing attempts for 21 yards and a TD.


Mar 10 2017 - D.J. Swearinger
  S D.J. Swearinger signed with the Washington Redskins on Friday. Swearinger signed a three-year, $13.5 million with $9 million guaranteed. The 5-10, 205-pound Swearinger is entering his fifth NFL season after initially being selected by the Houston Texans in the second round (57th overall) of the 2013 draft. He has appeared in 59 career regular-season games with 35 starts for the Texans (2013-14), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2015) and Arizona Cardinals (2015-16), totaling 222 tackles, 19 passes defensed, 11 tackles for loss, six interceptions, five forced fumbles, three fumbles recovered and 3.0 sacks. Last season, the 25-year-old Swearinger appeared in all 16 games for Arizona, starting the final 12. He posted career highs in solo tackles (56), passes defensed (eight), tackles for loss (five), interceptions (three) and sacks (2.0).


Mar 10 2017 - Stacy McGee
  DL Stacy McGee signed with the Washington Redskins on Friday. McGee agreed to terms on a five-year contract worth $25 million with $9 million guaranteed. The 6-3, 310-pound McGee (6-3, 310) is entering his fifth NFL season after initially being selected by the Oakland Raiders in the sixth round in 2013. McGee has appeared in 51 career games (18 starts), compiling 63 tackles, five tackles for loss, 3.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumbles recovered. McGee, 27, recorded career highs in starts (nine), tackles for loss (three), sacks (2.5) and forced fumbles (two) despite being limited by injuries to nine regular-season games last season with the Raiders. He returned for the team's AFC wild-card playoff game against Houston, contributing two tackles.


Mar 10 2017 - Terrell McClain
  DL Terrell McClain officially signed with the Washington Redskins. McClain's deal is for a reported four years and worth $21 million with $11 million guaranteed. The 6-foot-2, 302-pound McClain was originally selected by the Carolina Panthers in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He has appeared in 62 career regular-season games (27 starts) for the Panthers, New England Patriots, Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys. For his career, the 28-year-old McClain owns 90 tackles, eight tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, three fumbles forced and two fumbles recovered. Last season, he made 15 starts and posted career highs in tackles (40), solo tackles (21), sacks (2.5) and forced fumbles (two).


Mar 10 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins officially signed his one-year franchise tender with the Redskins on Friday for the guaranteed salary of almost $24 million this season. It was the second straight year that the franchise tag was used on Cousins, who received the non-exclusive franchise tag in 2015.

Mar 10 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins asked Redskins owner Daniel Snyder for a trade without a long-term contract in place, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on Thursday, citing league and team sources. Snyder told Cousins that he should not anticipate a trade, according to the report. Cousins is prevented from negotiating with teams under the exclusive franchise tag that was placed on him Feb. 28. It was the second straight year that the franchise tag was used on Cousins, who received the non-exclusive franchise tag in 2015.


Mar 8 2017 - Vernon Davis
  TE Vernon Davis re-signed with the Redskins on a three-year deal worth a reported $15 million. The 6-3, 248-pound Davis is a veteran of 164 career regular-season games, including 154 starts. For his career, he owns 505 receptions for 6,424 yards and 57 touchdowns. Last season, the 33-year-old Davis appeared in all 16 games in his debut season with Washington, making 14 starts. The Washington, D.C., native recorded 44 receptions for 583 yards with two receiving touchdowns in 2016, his 11th NFL campaign.


Feb 28 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins had the exclusive franchise tag placed on him Tuesday, the Washington Redskins announced. Under NFL rules, the Redskins can negotiate with Cousins on a long-term contract extension until July 15. If a deal is not reached, Cousins will make $23.94 million for the 2017 season. Because Washington applied the exclusive tag to Cousins, he is not allowed to negotiate with other teams. Before being tagged, Cousins had reportedly expressed interested in a reunion with former Redskins offensive coordinator and new 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. Cousins is entering his sixth NFL season after throwing for 12,113 yards, 72 touchdowns and 42 interceptions in five previous seasons with Washington.


Jan 4 2017 - Stacy McGee
  DT Stacy McGee was limited in practice because of a groin injury and could be available against Houston after being inactive for the last five games.


Jan 3 2017 - Terrelle Pryor
  WR Terrelle Pryor will have surgery on the knuckle at the base of the middle finger of his right hand on Wednesday. He played the last two games with the injury.


Jan 2 2017 - Pierre Garcon
  WR Pierre Garcon topped 1,000 receiving yards for the second time in his career. He caught four passes for 96 yards Sunday to reach 1,041. That is the second-best total of Garcon's career. He had 1,346 yards in 2013 with the Redskins.


Jan 2 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins finished the season with the Redskins franchise record in pass attempts (606), completions (406) and passing yards (4,917). His yardage total ranked third in the NFL in 2016.


Jan 2 2017 - Rob Kelley
  RB Rob Kelley likely will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee later this month after being injured in a Dec. 24 win at Chicago. An MRI exam showed no serious damage and Kelley played in the season finale against the Giants, but he was limited in practice all week and struggled in the game (12 carries, 33 yards).


Jan 2 2017 - Ryan Kerrigan
  LB Ryan Kerrigan had the bone in his right index finger poke through the skin in Sunday's 19-10 loss to the New York Giants. Kerrigan also has a hyper-extended left elbow and a sore knee, but says he likely won't need surgery before OTAs in May.


Jan 2 2017 - Jordan Reed
  TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) was active after missing last week's game. Reed (248) moved past Don Warren (244) for third place on the Redskins' all-time receptions list for tight ends.


Jan 2 2017 - Pierre Garcon
  WR Pierre Garcon caught eight passes for 96 yards Sunday. Garcon and DeSean Jackson both went over 1,000 yards receiving for the season.


Jan 2 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins was intercepted by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie with under 1:30 remaining and the New York Giants defeated the Redskins 19-10 at FedEx Field to eliminate them from playoff contention. Cousins was 22 of 35 for 287 yards, one touchdown and two picks. He was sacked four times.


Jan 2 2017 - Stacy McGee
  DT Stacy McGee sat out Sunday's game with a groin injury. Darius Latham started in his place.


Dec 29 2016 - Chris Carter
  OLB Chris Carter (shoulder) had limited work during Wednesday's practice. Carter did not practice last week and did not play at Oakland. He appears to be trending in the right direction. His status will be updated Friday.


Dec 29 2016 - Terrell McClain
  NT Terrell McClain has an ankle sprain and will miss Sunday's game against the Eagles. He will be ready to go for the playoffs in two weeks.


Dec 28 2016 - Chris Baker
  DE Chris Baker (ankle) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.


Dec 28 2016 - Quinton Dunbar
  CB Quinton Dunbar remains in the NFL's concussion protocol. He was hurt Dec. 19 against Carolina and missed last week's game against Chicago.


Dec 28 2016 - Su'a Cravens
  ILB Su'a Cravens (elbow) did not participate in Wednesday's practice and it looks increasingly unlikely he will return to play in the decisive regular-season finale against New York on Sunday.


Dec 27 2016 - Terrell McClain
  DT Terrell McClain suffered a high ankle sprain against the Lions and will miss the season finale. The Cowboys hope he will be ready for the playoffs in three weeks.


Dec 26 2016 - Chris Carter
  OLB Chris Carter (shoulder) was a pregame inactive for last Sunday's game in Oakland. He did not practice last week, but Carter hopes to be cleared to practice this week and be available for the Jacksonville game.


Dec 26 2016 - Will Blackmon
  FS Will Blackmon's 79-yard interception return against the Bears on Saturday was Washington's longest since 2010 in a game also against Chicago.
