Fletcher and Garcon active

Here are the Redskins' inactives today

QB Rex Grossman
WR Dezmon Briscoe
CB Richard Crawford
CB Jerome Murphy
G Adam Gettis
OL Maurice Hurt
DE Coug Worthington

This means that London Fletcher will play his 235th straight game and that Pierre Garçon will be in the lineup. Both players were listed as questionable.

For the Cowboys, running back DeMarco Murray and nose tackle Jay Ratliff are inactive. Left tackle Tyron Smith is active but he is unlikely to start.

First Redskins player cracks top half of 2017 NFL Top 100 list

First Redskins player cracks top half of 2017 NFL Top 100 list

Watch a lot of football and few would argue Trent Williams is the best player on the Redskins. As a tackle, his position does not lend itself to many statistics, but listen to players inside and outside of the Redskins locker room and it's easy to understand just how good Williams is.

The proof came when Williams landed 47 on the NFL's Top 100 list, as voted by NFL players.

Named to the Pro Bowl the last five seasons, Williams missed four games due to suspension in 2016 but was rated as the best left tackle in football by Pro Football Focus. 

Williams joins Kirk Cousins, Jordan Reed and Josh Norman on the Top 100 list. Cousins landed 70th on the list, Reed at 65 and Norman at 59.

Last week, Jay Gruden explained that Williams was not present at Redskins OTAs but the head coach expected his tackle was working out on his own.

Redskins Playbook: When to expect a new GM to replace Scot McCloughan?

Redskins Playbook: When to expect a new GM to replace Scot McCloughan?

The Redskins fired GM Scot McCloughan in early March when the 2017 NFL season technically began at the start of the free agency period. The move was made clumsily, at best, though the team was able to navigate free agency and the NFL Draft with much success.

With a few more weeks of team activities until the quietest period of the NFL calendar begins in mind-June, might the Redskins hire a new general manager?

Last week, team president Bruce Allen said the Redskins have spoken with more than 10 front office candidates and that Washington could make as many as three new hires. Allen did not provide a timeline for the moves.

Looking at the calendar, it would make sense for the Redskins to announce new hires around the conclusion of minicamp on June 15. The Redskins won't have another official team activity until training camp opens in late July in Richmond. It's also possible that new hires will be made during that quiet period, though for many, that month long period is about the only true remnant of the NFL offseason.

Don't expect a new outside hire to get the title of general manager. That seems much more likely to be an internal promotion, likely fro Eric Schaeffer, Alex Santos, Doug Williams or Scott Campbell. Washington will likely add to the front office, like Allen suggested.
