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


      Greetings from BBQ. Welcome to April as we continue forward toward the draft later this month. Today we have the latest free agency update and there are several changes.

      The offseason tugboat is powering through agency, 2017. Tomorrow will bring the first mock of April as the countdown to the draft continues. As 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
      Wide Receiver
      Defensive Line
      Inside Linebacker

      Suspension:
      Silas Redd, RB – (Released)

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

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

      Johnathan Hankins may or may not be on the radar at this time. Interest for him has dried up around the league – an indication that he is seeking too much money.

      Personal Thoughts:
      I now think DeAngelo Hall will do a major restructure of his contract.

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

      Hail To The Redskins!
