    • Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2017 (Continual Updates)

      Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2017 (Continual Updates)

      Greetings from BBQ. Today we have the latest free agency update and there are several changes.

      The offseason pickup truck is plowing ahead in the free agency snowsqualls of 2017. The combine came to a close on Monday and later this month we will have the first mock of March as we countdown to the draft. After free agency simmers down, the mocks will increase in frequency until the very moment we reach the first round.

      We will look at our own free agents including those who are re-signed, released, and those who may not return. We will list candidates to be released and the cap savings/hit. We’ll provide updates as needed.

      We will no longer list free agents from other teams, just team needs for the Redskins.

      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. Who will the Redskins target, re-sign and release? Feel free to offer your ideas on free agency and the draft.

      Team Needs:
      Free Safety

      Niles Paul, TE – (Unknown - $2.0 Mil saved if cut)

      Silas Redd, RB – (Released)

      Offseason Updates:
      The Redskins have announced the offseason practice schedule:
      Rookie Camp
      May 12-14
      May 23-25
      May 30-June 1
      June 5-8
      Veterans Mini Camp
      June 13-15

      The Redskins are still rumored to be in the mix for Dontari Poe.

      The Redskins now have about $11.6M in salary cap room. Expect some cuts in the coming days and weeks. Also, expect a restructure or two. Obviously, a new contract for Kirk Cousins would likely add about $10M in cap space – if it happens.

      With the hiring of Torrian Gray as the new DB coach (via Florida and Virginia Tech), look for a substantially huge improvement from the corners and safeties. Many of his former players are in the league and several are expected to be drafted (some highly) in 2017.

      DE/DT Bennie Logan arrived in town last night. He is still in Ashburn. Expect a contract soon and possible signing.

      Expect Morgan Moses to get a contract extension in the offseason.

      New DE/DT Stacy McGee is a good player and could see plenty of rotational time. Not a starter, but a solid player.

      Personal Thoughts:
      With the retirement of Kory Lichtensteiger, my likely to be released list has narrowed to DeAngelo Hall.

      If the team releases DeAngelo Hall, BBQ wouldn’t mind seeing him in a front office role.

      Hail To The Redskins!
