Running backs shine in Washington Redskins first preseason game

The Redskins ended an eight-game losing streak, or at least that’s how it felt. Jay Gruden, in his debut, managed an offense that spread the ball to twelve different targets. Yet it was the running game that truly lead the charge. Kirk Cousins’ stock once again rose in a battle against Ryan Mallet, the other apparent poster child for tradable back-ups in the NFL. Cousins, of...

Jordan Reed, Fred Davis questionable, Redskins should draft a tight end

Sometime in late October, tight end probably wouldn’t have seemed like a big “need” position for the Redskins. With Jordan Reed beginning to emerge as an elite TE receiving threat, Logan Paulsen as a solid all-around player, and Fred Davis as a quality option who just seemed to be in the Shanaclan dog house, Washington’s tight end requirement appeared to be filled quite nicely...

Redskins’ Top 5 tight end options In Free Agency

Well, Fred Davis’ latest escapade certainly has created a need for the Redskins at tight end, now didn’t he? There was a slim chance he could have come back, contrary to some opinions, with a new head coach who likes to use tight ends as a security blanket for quarterbacks. We’ve seen him run 2 TE sets in many different ways. He’s had them in tight on both sides, one to each...
