      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mock Drafts, Camps, Roster Predictions, 2018

      Greetings from BBQ. The new year is churning along and the head coach of the Redskins seems a bit frustrated and fans tend to agree. Free agency, the draft, and training camp will be here before you know it. This is our second free agency update for the 2018 offseason. It’s very early in this process and we really don’t know how all of it will unfold. As we get closer to free agency, things will be somewhat clearer. Will Kirk Cousins sign a new long term deal? Will he be tagged with the franchise or transition tender? Is the team going to let him walk? Those are the biggest questions to be answered in the coming weeks.

      Who will we target in free agency? Who will we re-sign? Who will we not re-sign? Who will get released? Feel free to offer your opinions and predictions.

      We take the latest chatter from Redskins Park and media pundits as BBQ tries to formulate what could happen in the coming days, weeks and months.

      Offseason Updates:
      As you know we ended the process of listing free agents from other teams, but this offseason is full of unpredictability. We will list some players of interest this year, but it won’t be a comprehensive list and there is no way we can sign all of them.

      Case Keenum, QB
      Teddy Bridgewater, QB
      Carlos Hyde, RB
      Isaiah Crowell, RB
      Paul Richardson, WR
      Donte Moncrief, WR
      Brice Butler, WR
      Justin Pugh, OT/OG
      Greg Robinson, OT/OG
      Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB
      Demario Davis, ILB
      Sheldon Richardson, DE
      Brent Urban, DE
      DaQuan Jones, DT
      Daniel McCullers, DT
      Benny Logan, DE/DT
      Beau Allen, DT

      This list will grow, shrink, and change quite a bit. Feel free to produce a list of your own – we look forward to it.

      So much uncertainty surrounds what the Redskins will do in the Kirk Cousins saga, but Jay Gruden has now gone on record saying that he no longer wants one year (tags of any kind) deals.

      DC sports media guru Ben Standig has Georgia ILB Roquan Smith mocked to the Redskins in round one.

      Another DC sports media member, Chris Russell, said that the Redskins should’ve given Cousins a transition tag after the 2016 season and likely could’ve matched any offer from other teams. BBQ fully agrees.

      Nick Sundberg is in the running for the Walter Payton Man of the Year in the NFL. He is hoping to win and use the cash reward toward public schools.

      Redskins media seems to be evenly divided on whether Kirk stays or goes. Radio 106.7 in DC thinks a long term deal gets done and NBCS Washington thinks otherwise. BBQ tends to agree with the latter (Rich Tandler, JP Finlay, Brian Mitchell, Chick Hernandez).

      Personal Thoughts:
      The offseason blog for BBQ is now known as “Free Agency, Mock Drafts, Camps, Roster Predictions”. We feel it is a better representation of what is provided in the offseason blog. If you have a better name, then please let our executive secretary or lawyers know.

      BBQ is leaning toward the idea that Kirk Cousins has played his last game in a Redskins uniform. We also believe that we will target several free agent quarterbacks with the ultimate goal of signing Case Keenum.

      See you as we go along.

      Hail To The Redskins!
