Chris Baker made fun of Will Compton making NFL most attractive list, what happened next was savage

Chris Baker made fun of Will Compton making NFL most attractive list, what happened next was savage

One of the best parts of spending time in NFL locker rooms comes from listening to players interact like normal friends and co-workers. Generally, that means a lot of making fun of one another, just like an office or job site. 

Being the middle of February, the Redskins aren't in Ashburn every day to make fun of each other, so some of the chop busting spills onto social media. Washington linebacker Will Compton was recently named to the NFL's most attractive list by Fanatics.com. That would have led to a serious amount of ribbing in the locker room, but considering it's the offseason, Twitter took care of it. 

Things started with this innocuous tweet from @Redskins.

Then Chris Baker dropped a simple reply. 

Compton's retort was full-out savage. 

Remember, Compton and Baker are friends, and the defensive lineman enjoyed the linebacker's burn.

Besides, with Baker staring at unrestricted free agency, he's probably much more focused with landing on Pro Football Focus' 10 under the radar free agents list. PFF wrote, "Baker gets consistent pressure on the quarterback, but is an even better run defender, as you’ll rarely find the veteran out of position." Traits like that will get Swaggy paid, either in Washington, or elsewhere.

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."
