Bullet points: Davis his own lawyer in legal flap

Some quick Redskins nuggets to get your Friday morning going.--Fred Davis is in a strange legal dispute with a woman whose business card says she is a celebrity broker. The Washingtonian is reporting that Davis is representing himself as the woman, 33-year-old Makini Chaka, is trying to get a temporary restraining order and wants damage due to Davis a;lskdjf malicious, willful and intentional assault, injurious falsehood and civil conspiracy.Go give the bizarre story a read.--The NFL announced that TV doubleheader games will started at 4:25 instead of 4:15 in order to prevent overlap with earlier games. Since I dont have to deal with deadlines like my print brethren do Im fine with the change. It will mean that when CBS has the doubleheader game, 60 Minutes frequently will start a full 60 minutes late.--Today The 53 is about quarterbacks. I suppose I should try to manufacture some suspense here but its hard to see them going with anything other than the obvious three. Give it a look this afternoon anyway.--The youngest Redskin is Richard Crawford, who will turn 22 on August 1. The oldest, by a comfortable margin, is Sav Rocca. He is 38 years and seven months old, about a year and a half older than London Fletcher, who turned 37 last month.Also, try to stay cool and hydrated today, 10 runs not enough for the Nats and the Wizards draft Bradley Beal to team with John Wall in the backcourt.Days until: Rookies report 17; training camp 27; preseason opener @ Bills 41; Redskins @ Saints 72; home opener vs. Bengals 86

Jordan Reed missed OTAs Tuesday but was still putting in work with Chad Johnson

Jordan Reed missed OTAs Tuesday but was still putting in work with Chad Johnson

Jordan Reed was reportedly absent from the Redskins' voluntary OTA practice on Tuesday, but a picture on Twitter shows the stud tight end didn't skip the session just so he could lounge around on the couch.

Chad Johnson, expert on all things such as repeatedly hauling in footballs and transforming the end zone into the 18th green at Augusta National, posted this photo of him, Reed and one other fellow, presumably following a workout:

For those who want to freak out that Washington's top offensive threat didn't show up in Ashburn for his team's OTAs, it's important to remember that 1) it was not required and 2) judging by that snapshot, Reed has had no trouble staying in football shape on his own or finding people to hone his craft with.

By the way, peep that hashtag from Johnson. When a six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro uses the word legendary to refer to someone else, that someone else should feel pretty good about himself.

Josh Norman lands in NFL Top 100 for second straight season

Josh Norman lands in NFL Top 100 for second straight season

Josh Norman is the third Redskins player voted to the NFL Top 100 list for 2017 (so far). The annual ranking, voted on by current NFL players, unveiled No. 60 through 51 on NFL Network Monday night. 

Norman landed at No. 59, joining teammates Jordan Reed (65) and Kirk Cousins (70). This marks the second straight season that the cornerback was voted into the Top 100 by his peers. 

In 2016, Norman was ranked No. 11 on the heels of a Super Bowl berth with the Carolina Panthers. 

The 2016 season was Norman's first with the Redskins, signing a $75 million contract to come to Washington after being released by the Panthers. 

He started all 16 games for the Redskins and finished the season with 67 tackles, 19 passes defensed and three interceptions. Two of those picks came in the same game against the Bears in Week 16. 

Norman enters the 2017 season as the team's top corner and one of the leaders of the defense, which saw a change of coordinator with Greg Manusky replacing Joe Barry.
