    • Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2017 (Continual Updates)


      Here are some updates as we get closer to training camp this week.

      Rob Kelley is in much better shape than last season. He likes fast food a lot, but is now eating healthier.

      If the Redskins keep six receivers on the roster of fifty-three, it could come down to rookie Robert Davis and veteran Brian Quick for that sixth spot.

      BBQ believes that WRs Maurice Harris and Ryan Grant are locks to make the roster.

      Junior Galette says that he is in the best shape of his life and is quicker than ever. Let's hope so.

      DeAngelo Hall will be on the PUP list when camp opens. BBQ thinks he will eventually go to IR and miss what will be his final season in a Redskins uniform.

      Houston Bates will be on the PUP list when camp opens.

      Junior Galette would love to be a starter this season, but look for him to be in the lineup for pass situations only. He will be a pass rush specialist.

      If Zach Brown masters the defense quickly, don't be surprised if Mason Foster moves to the Mike position and moves Will Compton to reserve status.

      Many people thought Tress Way was a bit off last season as he averaged just over thirty-seven yards a punt over the first eight games. He averaged 40.5 in the second half of the season - a definite improvement.

      Jordan Reed could become the best tight end this season if he remains healthy for the entire season according some in league circles.

      Peter King thinks it is very possible that the Redskins will apply the $34M tag next year on Kirk Cousins. BBQ thinks it will be the $28M transition tag, but only if he has another good season.

      Fabian Moreau and Montae Nicholson will likely start camp (and possibly the season) on the NFI list.

      Don't count out DT Joey Mbu making the roster. At 6-3, 325 he has added about twenty pounds of muscle to his frame. At the very least, he is a lock for the practice squad.

      Houston Bates (starting camp on the PUP list) is considered to be on the bubble, but he could earn a spot on the roster if Junior Galette stumbles again.

      BBQ recommends that you keep an eye on the following players during this preseason: Martrell Spaight, Anthony Lanier, Keith Marshall, Joey Mbu, and Matt Jones (yes, he is still around).

      Football analyst Pete Prisco of CBS says that Kirk Cousins is the most overrated player on the Redskins roster and Morgan Moses is the most underrated.

      According to John Keim, players who need to step up in 2017 include Bashaud Breeland, Nate Sudfeld, Preston Smith, Ryan Grant, Josh Doctson, Rob Kelley, and Junior Galette.

      The Redskins announced a new multi-year partnership with PepsiCo. Cans of Pepsi with the Redskins logo and bags of Tostitos with the same will appear in DC area stores this fall.

      Interesting question for today. Should the Redskins put in a waiver claim for Lucky Whitehead?
