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

      Greetings from BBQ. We hope your week is off to a good start. Free agency now enters a slower pace, but signings will continue and we are still here to cover it all.

      OTAs, the draft, mini camps, and training camp will be here before you know it, but we’re talking free agency now and all the trades, re-signings, tags, releases, new free agents, and re-worked contracts are becoming 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 Obtained:
      Paul Richardson, WR – (Signed Five Year Deal, 3/15/18)
      Sam Irwin Hill, P – (Details To Come)
      Orlando Scandrick, CB (Signed Two Year Deal, 3/19/18)

      Free Agents Re-signed:
      Quinton Dunbar, CB/ST – (Signed Three Year Deal, 1/1/18)
      Mason Foster, ILB – (Signed Two Year Deal, 1/25/18)
      Deshazor Everett, SS/ST – (Signed Two Year Deal, 3/6/18)
      Dustin Hopkins, K – (Signed Three Year Deal, 3/12/18)
      Brian Quick, WR – (Signed, 3/14/18)
      Zach Brown, ILB – (Signed Three Year Deal, 3/15/18)

      Alex Smith, QB
      Kendall Fuller, CB (Traded to the Chiefs)

      Restricted Free Agents:
      Ty Nsehke, OT – Tendered (Second Round Tender, 3/12/18)

      Exclusive Rights Free Agents:

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

      Pending Free Agents:
      Terrelle Pryor, WR – (Signed With Jets)
      Shawn Lauvao, OG – (Unknown)
      DeAngelo Hall, FS – (Very Likely Retires)
      Arthur Jones, DT – (Probably Walks)
      Bashaud Breeland, CB – (Unknown)
      Will Compton, ILB – (Very Likely Walks)
      Junior Galette, OLB – (Very Likely Walks)
      Chris Carter, LB/ST – (Unknown)
      Tony Bergstrom, C – (Very 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)
      Terrell McClain, DE/DT – (Cap Savings, $3.25M – Dead Cap, $3.75M {If June 1st Cut, Spread Over Two Yrs})
      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.

      The Redskins now have $19.3M of cap room and would have small cap ramifications if Terrell McClain is released as a June 1 candidate. The dead cap would be $3.75M, but could be spread out over two years.

      While Johnathan Hankins continues to ponder his future, it is important to note who represents him. Kevin Poston of the notorious Poston brothers is his agent and is widely known for his shenanigans with clients. Keep a watch for developments.

      The new cap for 2018 is $177.2M.

      We have ended the list of potential free agents as the list has dwindled and free agency is now well into a second phase.

      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).

      Personal Thoughts:
      The Denver Broncos are still very interested in Su’a Cravens.

      There is a report that Pernell McPhee will sign with the Redskins soon. Nothing is confirmed and BBQ believes that nothing is certain until a signing takes place.

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

      Even though Bashaud Breeland failed a Carolina physical, BBQ thinks there is no way he returns to the Redskins.

      See you as we go along.

      Hail To The Redskins!
