34 Redskins on the bubble

And there are some who currently are on the roster who have as much of a chance of being one of the final 53 as your or I do.The rest of the players on the 90-man roster are on the bubble. Their fates will be determined over the 18 days between now and the final cutdown on Aug. 31.I thought it would be useful to identify the players who I view as being on the bubble and see how my list matches up with yours.

Don't believe trade hype: Bruce Allen insists Kirk Cousins will be Redskins quarterback in 2017

Don't believe trade hype: Bruce Allen insists Kirk Cousins will be Redskins quarterback in 2017

Kirk Cousins will be the Redskins quarterback in 2017. Period. At least that's the word from team president Bruce Allen.

"That's why we franchised him," Allen said of Cousins.

Asked about numerous trade rumors and reports on the Redskins single season passing record holder, Allen dismissed them all.

"I can't keep up with the rumors," Allen said. "Kirk and I have talked almost a dozen times this offseason, and we get to laugh when we hear these different rumors. We haven't talked to anyone."

Allen has spoken with Cousins representatives a number of times this offseason, and the organization still wants to get a long-term deal done with their passer. 

"Our goal from the beginning has been long-term," the team president said. "I'm still hopeful and confident we'll do it."

The team could again use a tag on Cousins, an option Allen mentioned.

Exclusive: Redskins' Bruce Allen answers questions on Scot McCloughan's firing: 'We needed clarity'

Exclusive: Redskins' Bruce Allen answers questions on Scot McCloughan's firing: 'We needed clarity'

PHOENIX -- The Redskins suffered a public divorce when the team dismissed Scot McCloughan from his general manager position earlier this month. Bruce Allen, speaking with CSN in Phoenix at the NFL Owner's Meetings, explained just how hard the decision was.

"It was difficult because his father and brother and I worked together for a number of years with the Raiders and enjoyed success together. When I brought [Scot McCloughan] to the Redskins obvisouly I was hoping for a good marriage. It is disapointing."

Allen said his organization needed clarity once free agency opened up, and removing McCloughan provided that.

"I thought on the first day of the league year [March 9], the free agents we were bringing in, we needed clarity. And for our scouts to continue the good work we were doing we needed clarity for the season," he said. "The opening day made the decision."

Interstingly, Allen unequiovocally explained that McCloughan can go work elsewhere in the NFL.

"We hope it works out for Scot because now he can be hired by teams before the draft. He's available, and wish him the best."

Allen would not comment on any personal issues with McCloughan.

"I would never go into the personal conversations."
