Need to Know: NFL Draft talk dominates week's top 5 Redskins posts

Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, May 4, four days before the NFL draft.

Nickel coverage

Here are our five most popular posts from the week that was.

CSN’s Redskins draft board: Inside linebacker—Do the Redskins have London Fletcher’s replacement on the roster right now? They could look to the draft to find a long-term solution.

Draft chatter: Will Gruden want another tight end?—Jay Gruden used two tight ends very effectively in Cincinnati. Will he want the Redskins to take a tag team partner for Jordan Reed in the early going during the draft?

Draft trade back scenarios for the Redskins—The Redskins have only six picks in a deep draft. They could get more by trading back; here are a few possible scenarios.

Five safe draft picks for the Redskins at 34—The Redskins can’t afford to take chances with any of their picks; here are five safe picks who should be there with their top selection.

Who will start at safety for the Redskins?—It’s two questions, really. Who will line up when the season starts? And is there anyone who might overtake the starters as the season goes on?

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Cornerback Dashaun Phillips had a very short return to the Redskins’ active roster.

Phillips, who started the season as the nickel cornerback before being benched and eventually released and moved to the practice squad last month, was re-signed to the roster on Friday. He made the trip to Arizona but he was inactive for the game. The Redskins announced today that he has been released again.

It is possible for Phillips to return to the practice squad if he clears through waivers.

The transaction clears a roster spot for the return of offensive tackle Trent Williams, who has been suspended for the last four games.

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Among all the darkness and depression that has followed after the Redskins' 31-23 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, one bright, shining light has emerged: Jamison Crowder's touchdown celebration.

Late in the third quarter, the second-year wideout was on the receiving end of a 26-yard Kirk Cousins strike, which put his team in the lead on the game's scoreboard by three. However, it's what he did post-catch that put his team in the lead by a far larger margin on the swagboard.

Feast your eyes on this dance, and if you've already seen it, feast your eyes on it again. And again. And AGAIN:

Do you see how much Juju he put on that beat? And did you catch how he gave the ref a little somethin'-somethin' right at the end of the sequence? Calling that flawless would be an insult to Crowder.

Apparently, Jay Gruden was heard screaming at his players in the locker room as they were processing the matchup's result Sunday night. Is it possible he was just loudly complimenting Crowder's moves?
