Redskins agree to terms with former Rams wide receiver Brian Quick

The Redskins agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Brian Quick. 

Quick has spent his entire five-year NFL career with the Rams franchise, moving with the team from St. Louis to Los Angeles last season. A second-round pick in 2012 out of Appalachian State, Quick's best season came last year when he caught 41 passes for 564 yards and three touchdowns. 

In five seasons, Quick has started 24 games and racked up nearly 1,500 receiving yards on 105 catches and 14 TDs.

The Redskins lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon earlier this offseason to free agency, and those departures leave a big hole in the Washington offense. Jackson and Garçon accounted for more than 40 percent of Kirk Cousins' passing yards in 2016.

Quick's arrival will not offset those losses, but he does continue a trend for Washington this offseason: big receivers. The 'Skins signed Terrelle Pryor earlier in free agency. Pryor goes 6-foot-6. Quick is listed at 6-foot-3. Remember, Josh Doctson should be healthy this fall, and he runs 6-foot-2. 

Of the departed wideouts, Garçon was taller, still just 6-foot. Jackson was generously listed at 5-foot-10.

Redskins activate TE Reed off of the PUP list

 

The Redskins have struggled on offense in the preseason. The good news is that they are getting one of their best offensive players back to work.

The team announced that tight end Jordan Reed has been activated off the physically unable to perform list (PUP). He was placed on the list at the start of training camp with a toe injury.

At first coach Jay Gruden indicated that the injury would be a short-term problem but as it turns out he spent 24 days on the PUP list.

Reed made the Pro Bowl last year despite missing a total of four games with a shoulder injury and with a concussion, He caught 66 passes for 686 yards and six touchdowns.

His removal from the list means that he can start practicing with the team immediately. Reed would be eligible to play in the Redskins’ preseason game against the Bengals next Sunday. However, given how cautious the team has been with his injury and his value to the offense it seems likely that he will not take the field for a game until the Redskins’ season opener against the Eagles on September 10.

WWE icon Jim Ross really loves Redskins running back Samaje Perine

WWE icon Jim Ross really loves Redskins running back Samaje Perine

Redskins fans don't quite know what they're going to get out of rooking running back Semaje Perine, but legendary WWE icon Jim Ross certainly does. 

Ross, a University of Oklahoma fan, saw a lot of Perine when he was a star on the Sooners.

Ross recently went on CSN to let the people know what, exactly, they were getting from the Oklahoma product. Here's the list of accolades, in no particular order, that Ross has for Perine:

- Restaurant quality running back

- tougher than a 2$ steak 

- a man's man

- all man (which is different than being a man's man, somehow)

- a yard wide (?)

You can see the whole thing here, with Ross coming in at the 1:22 mark.
