      The 2017 NFL offseason is officially here. With the first day of no football, BBQ will take a look at intriguing free agent targets for the Redskins. While we don’t officially list them in the regular periodical free agency updates, we simply want to list some players of note.

      Will the Redskins sign any of them? Possibly. It will depend on who the team retains, releases, re-signs, or declines to re-sign. We are listing this group only once (today) and the team ...

      Today we bring you the second mock of the 2017 offseason and it features nine draft choices.

      Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2017(Continual Updates)

      Greetings from the offices of BBQ World Headquarters.

      Today we bring you the first mock of the 2017 offseason and it features nine draft choices. The original plan was to post one mock in January and another one in February, but we could post an additional mock or two before the beginning of free agency in early March. The need for two new coordinators may make the extra mocks necessary.

      There are 14 other Redskins FA's besides Kirk Cousins this year. The Kirk thing has been an ongoing debate in several other threads so I'm just looking for thoughts on these other players.
      Granted many decisions will be based on the draft but where might these guys fit in if at all.

      From the top (2016 contracts) down per Spotrac: (link: 2017 NFL Free Agents Tracker | Spotrac)

      2 WR's Pierre Garcon (30) & DeSean Jackson (30): Pierre was at $8.5M and DeSean ...

      On the injury update:
      “I didn’t get the injury report. I’ll get it to y’all later.”

      On the mood in the locker room and his message to the team:
      “It’s over. We played a very good team today and we didn’t get it done, then just like that your season’s over. You just got to say goodbye. So hopefully we’ll see y’all next year, appreciate their hard work. They all did work hard, played hard. Just weren’t good enough. Just didn’t get it done today.”

      On Giants taking away the run game:
      “They’re a good run defense first of all. Got to give the Giants credit, Coach [Ben] McAdoo. We knew they’d have their team ready to play, and we just didn’t get enough good run lanes for our ...
