      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2019

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

      Free Agency is not over and there are occasional rumblings here and there. This is our latest free agency update for the off-season and the 2019 season continues to inch closer.

      As free agency continues to a certain degree, things will become much clearer over the summer. Will Alex Smith ever return from a brutal injury? Does Case Keenum start on day one or will it be Dwayne Haskins? What kind of changes will we see to the roster? Those are some of the biggest questions still to be answered in the 2019 off-season.

      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.

      Re-structure Contract Candidates:
      Alex Smith, QB
      Jordan Reed, TE
      Josh Norman, CB

      2019 Dead Money Contracts:
      DJ Swearinger ($1.33M)
      Orlando Scandrick ($500K)
      Zach Brown ($3M)
      Stacy McGee ($2.4M)

      Off-Season Updates:
      The current Redskins cap room currently stands at $9.88M for 2019. When Montez Sweat and Terry McLaurin sign their contracts, the Redskins will have a cap at $8.9M. Re-signing Brandon Scherff will provide more cap room. Releases and re-structures will also increase the cap room.

      If Josh Norman is released, he would count $3M in dead money for 2019. Cutting him would save $11.5M. Overall savings would be $8.5M. However, BBQ doubts he will be released.

      We know absolutely nothing on Alex Smith, but he will obviously not return in 2019. Will he be ready for the 2020 season? Is his career over? Will he retire? Will he give the Redskins any cap relief? No one knows, but we’ll stay on top of it.

      The extension given to Matt Ioannidis was for three years. He was set to be a free agent next year.

      Personal Thoughts:
      Here is a list of remaining players that I would like for the Redskins to consider in free agency. Not all of them can be signed, but these are a few I like.
      Tre Boston, FS, Arizona
      Shane Ray, OLB, Denver
      Michael Crabtree, WR

      In Conclusion:
      The free agency updates will continue as new information is available.
