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

      Greetings from BBQ. We hope your week is going well. The combine for 2018 has passed into the history books and we will have a prospects update on Thursday.

      Free agency, the draft, and training camp will be here before you know it. March 14 will be here quickly as well and all the trades, re-signings, tags, releases, new free agents, and re-worked contracts will be known.

      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.

      Free Agents Re-signed:

      Alex Smith, QB (Four Year Extension, Five Years Total)

      Terrelle Pryor, WR – (Very Likely Walks)
      Shawn Lauvao, OG – (Very Likely Walks)
      Niles Paul, TE/ST – (Will Not Return)
      Spencer Long, OG/C – (Very Likely Walks)
      Ryan Grant, WR – (Unknown)
      DeAngelo Hall, FS – (Very Likely Retires)
      Arthur Jones, DT – (Probably Walks)
      Zach Brown, ILB – (Possibly Walks)
      Bashaud Breeland, CB – (Very Likely Walks)
      Will Compton, ILB – (Very Likely Walks)
      Trent Murphy, OLB – (Likely Walks)
      Junior Galette, OLB – (Unknown)
      Chris Carter, LB/ST – (Unknown)
      Tony Bergstrom, C – (Very Likely Walks)
      Brian Quick, WR – (Likely Walks)
      Zach Vigil, ILB – (Possibly Re-signs)
      Phil Taylor, DT – (Unknown)

      Possible Release Candidates:
      Keith Marshall, RB – (Cap Savings, $33K – Dead Cap, $538.6K)
      Byron Marshall, RB – (Cap Savings, $630K – Dead Cap, $0)
      Jordan Reed, TE – (Cap Savings, $5.2M – Dead Cap, $5.4M)
      T.J. Clemmings, OT – (Cap Savings, $705K – Dead Cap, $0)
      Arie Kouandjio, OG – (Cap Savings, $705K – Dead Cap, $0)
      Demetrius Rhaney, C – (Cap Savings, $705K – Dead Cap, $0)
      A.J. Francis, DE – (Cap Savings, $705K – Dead Cap, $0)
      Su’a Cravens, SS – (Cap Savings, $1.36M – Dead Cap, $1.7M)

      Offseason Updates:
      Multiple reports suggest that the Redskins are looking to trade Su’a Cravens.

      Kirk Cousins to the Vikings looks very likely now. Reports suggest he will get a fully guaranteed $90M contract for three years.

      The Green Bay Packers are reported to have an interest in adding pending free agent Trent Murphy and a deal could be struck in the opening hours of free agency.

      The new cap for 2018 is $177.2M.

      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.

      Dion Lewis, RB
      Isaiah Crowell, RB
      Paul Richardson, WR
      Donte Moncrief, WR
      Josh Sitton, OG
      Luke Joeckel, OG
      Nigel Bradham, OLB
      Dee Ford, OLB
      Preston Brown, ILB
      Demario Davis, ILB
      Jon Bostic, ILB
      Benson Mayowa, DE
      Dontari Poe, DT
      Sheldon Richardson, DT/DE
      Muhammad Wilkerson, DE/DT
      Bennie Logan, DE/DT
      Beau Allen, DT
      Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, CB
      Aaron Colvin, CB

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

      With the new extension for Alex Smith as he joins the Redskins, we have learned that the total deal is for five years (four year extension).

      With Allen Robinson heading to the Chicago Bears and Sammy Watkins to the Chiefs, Paul Richardson becomes the top free agent wide receiver target of the Redskins according to John Keim.

      J.P. Finlay believes the Redskins will be aggressive in free agency this year, a departure from the norm under Bruce Allen. Expect the targets to be players coming off of rookie deals and younger players.

      Personal Thoughts:
      While it is tough to lose Kendall Fuller, the quarterback position is now settled for the next few years. Kirk Cousins never had any intention of signing a long term deal here. It is time to move forward.

      BBQ believes that if Su’a Cravens is not traded, Bruce Allen will hold on to him until the final cuts.

      BBQ believes that a quarterback will be selected by the Redskins in the middle rounds of the upcoming draft.

      See you as we go along.

      Hail To The Redskins!
