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

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone here at BGO. We hope your week has been a good one. Hello to everyone on social media. We’d love to have you as a member here and become part of the family.

      Free Agency is not over and there are occasional rumblings here and there, especially with training camp in session. This is our latest free agency update for the off-season as the 2019 season continues to inch closer.

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

      Who will we target in free agency before the regular season arrives? 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, Bon Secours, and media pundits as BBQ tries to formulate what could happen in the coming days, weeks and months.

      Upcoming Dates:
      - Days until the first preseason game: 6
      - Days until the Regular Season Opener (Eagles): 37
      - Days until the Cowboys game: 44
      - Days until the Giants game: 58

      Off-Season Updates:
      The Redskins cap room currently stands at $11.63M for 2019. Re-signing Brandon Scherff will provide more cap room. Releases and re-structures (if they occur) will also increase the cap room.

      We still know absolutely nothing on Alex Smith, but he will obviously not play 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.

      According to DeAngelo Hall, the Trent Williams stalemate centers on the training staff and a few on the medical staff. Williams wants them to be fired and replaced.

      Trent Williams is unlikely to be traded. Compensation late in the preseason would be inadequate. It’s unknown if either side will compromise in any way, but this shows no signs of ending sometime soon.

      Adonis Alexander is struggling in camp and he is in danger of not making the final roster.

      Bryce Love will miss the first six games of the season, but he continues to work on the sidelines in all practices and walkthroughs.

      Danny Johnson and Jordan Brailford also continue to work on the sidelines. No timetable has been announced for their return.

      Cam Sims was briefly injured late in Thursday’s practice. He will be a full participant in Saturday’s practice.

      Montez Sweat injured his ankle during practice on Wednesday. After sitting out on Thursday, he will be a full participant in Saturday’s practice.

      Personal Thoughts:
      Both sides with the Trent Williams fiasco are dug in, but I do believe the training staff needs to be replaced and possibly one or two on the medical staff. Fifty players going to injured reserve in two years speaks volumes.

      Jimmy Moreland is a lock to make the roster. BBQ also believes he is a star in the making.

      Troy Apke is having a better camp than anyone expected, but I need to reserve judgment until the preseason games.

      Jeremy Sprinkle is having a great camp. Is it enough to surpass Vernon Davis on the depth chart? Probably not, but Sprinkle is bringing the heat.

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