With receiver group in flux, might Redskins make run at Alshon Jeffery?

With receiver group in flux, might Redskins make run at Alshon Jeffery?

It seems likely the Redskins stand to lose one or both of receivers DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon in free agency. That could mean more than 2,000 yards receiving exiting the offense, a significant blow.

Could Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery come to Washington and cushion the blow?

Multiple reports say that Chicago will not put the franchise tag on Jeffery, which means the 6-foot-4 receiver will hit the open market when free agency opens in a little more than a week. Coming off consectuive injury-marred seasons, still expect the market to be ripe for the former South Carolina star.

A five-year veteran that will turn 28 in August, Jeffery posted more than 2,500 receiving yards in the 2013 and 2014 seasons to go with 17 touchdowns. An extremely gifted red zone receiver, Jeffery is one of the best in the league at high-pointing the football and coming down with circus catches. His last two seasons, however, the Bears wideout only played in 21 of 32 games and his numbers dipped dramatically: just over 1,600 yards and six TDs combined.

Though Washington will likely lose at least one of Garçon or Jackson, and very possibly both, that does not necessarily make Jeffery a prime target. 

Expect cost to be a major factor as the Chicago receiver will likely command the top free agent payout at the position. And his recent injury history could be a factor as well. 

Further, the Redskins must believe they have a No. 1 receiver already in house in Josh Doctson. The No. 22 overall pick in 2016, Doctson hardly played as a rookie due to an Achilles injury but appears to be progressing well in his rehab. At 6-foot-2 and extremely athletic, Doctson was drafted to be a prime red zone target with the ability to go up and get TDs.

Capitals a bit healthier as they prepare for Rangers

Capitals a bit healthier as they prepare for Rangers

NEWARK—Monday’s practice at Prudential Center began with three of the Caps’ injured players on the ice.

Winger T.J. Oshie and defensemen Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen started as full participants in the session, which is ongoing.

There were no minor-league call ups present.

Oshie (upper body) skated as the right wing on the third line rather than his usual spot on the top combination. He left practice about 30-minutes into the session, which was planned.  

Orpik and Niskanen, meanwhile, were part of seven-man rotation on the blue line.

Coach Barry Trotz and the players are expected to address reporters at the end of practice.

The Caps are practicing at the Devils’ practice rink en route to New York, where they’ll face the Rangers on Tuesday.
