Redskins' 53-man roster finalized--for now

Redskins' 53-man roster finalized--for now

The Redskins have finalized their 53-man roster at least for today. There could be changes if they add players who were released by other teams so the bubble players can’t rest easy just yet.

Here is the roster as it stands tonight. The team can begin signing players to the 10-man practice squad after waivers are cleared at noon on Sunday.

Starters are in bold.

Offense

Quarterback (3): Kirk Cousins, Robert Griffin III, Colt McCoy

With this morning’s report that Griffin will stay, this was set.

Offensive line (10): Trent Williams, Shawn Lauvao, Kory Lichtensteiger, Brandon Scherff, Morgan Moses, Tom Compton, Spencer Long, Arie Kouandjio, Josh LeRibeus, Ty Nsekhe

This is an overload; one could be released if the team picks up a third tight end

Wide receiver (6): Pierre Garçon, DeSean Jackson, Andre Roberts, Ryan Grant, Jamison Crowder, Rashad Ross

Ross wasn’t on many peoples’ radar before training camp started but he forced his way onto the roster with a strong preseason.

Tight end (3): Jordan Reed, Derek Carrier

Either Tom Compton is going to be the third tight end or they will find somebody on the waiver wire. Reed is injury prone and Carrier has only been here a few weeks.

Running back (4): Alfred Morris, Darrel Young, Matt Jones, Chris Thompson

This has been set in stone since the start of training camp. Undrafted rookie Trey Williams could be a practice squad candidate if he clears waivers.

Defense

Defensive line (7): Jason Hatcher, Terrance Knighton, Stephen Paea, Chris Baker, Ricky Jean Francois, Kedric Golston, Frank Kearse

They have gone with seven on the DL in most years but I think they need an extra linebacker to help on special teams.

Outside linebacker (4): Ryan Kerrigan, Trent Murphy, Preston Smith, Jackson Jeffcoat

Jeffcoat played pretty well when moved to the active roster late last year due to injuries. He got an opening to the roster when Junior Galette was injured and he took advantage of it.

Inside linebacker (4): Perry Riley, Keenan Robinson, Will Compton, Martrell Spaight

The Redskins could be looking for another linebacker on waivers.

Cornerback (5): Chris Culliver, DeAngelo Hall, David Amerson, Justin Rogers, Deshazor Everett

Bashaud Breeland will not be on Week 1 roster due to NFL suspension.

Safety (5): Dashon Goldson, Duke Ihenacho, Jeron Johnson, Kyshoen Jarrett, Trenton Robinson

A total of 10 defensive backs is a little heavy; they could release one to make room for another linebacker.

Specialists (3): LS Nick Sundberg, P Tress Way, PK Kai Forbath

Forbath brushed off a challenge in training camp and this was set.

The numbers: 25 offense, 25 defense, 3 specialists; 16 new to the Redskins organization in 2015 including seven draft picks

Third-round pick Fabian Moreau signs with Redskins, all draftees now under contract

Third-round pick Fabian Moreau signs with Redskins, all draftees now under contract

By: Caroline Brandt, @carolinewbrandt 

The Redskins have a lot to feel good about going into Memorial Day weekend. Fabian Moreau, a cornerback out of UCLA and the Redskins' 81st pick, has officially signed with the team.

The 6-foot, 200-pound CB tore his pectoral muscle during the bench press at his pro day, but he recently told Redskins Insider JP Finlay that his rehab is going well. There is hope Moreau could return to the field in August or September.

All 10 of Washington's draft picks this season are now under contract with Moreau's signing.

The Redskins' 2017 draft class includes:

  1. Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama (No. 17 Overall, Rd. 1)
  2. Ryan Anderson, OLB, Alabama (No. 49 Overall, Rd. 2)
  3. Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA (No. 81 Overall, Rd. 3)
  4. Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma (No. 114 Overall, Rd. 4)
  5. Montae Nicholson, S, Michigan State (No. 123 Overall, Rd. 4)
  6. Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas (No. 154, Rd. 5)
  7. Chase Rouiller, C, Wyoming (No. 199, Rd. 6)
  8. Robert Davis, WR, Georgia State (No. 209, Rd. 6)
  9. Josh Harvey-Clemons, S/LB, Louisville (No. 230, Rd. 7)
  10. Joshua Holsey, CB, Auburn (No. 235, Rd. 7)
