The Redskins may be commencing talks on a three-way trade that would send Kirk Cousins to the 49ers and bring Tony Romo to the Redskins, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
His tweets were light on detail, here they are:

The first thing to note here is that this is far from a done deal. Rapoport mentions “playing it forward” based on inquiries that have been made. For every deal that gets done there are dozens and dozens of inquiries.
Also, there is more to fill in here than just the 49ers getting Cousins, the Redskins getting Romo, and the Cowboys getting picks.
Even though Cousins’ contract situation makes his value hard to judge, the it clearly is more than just a swap for Romo, who will turn 37 next month and has played just five games in the past two seasons.
Again, this is not close to being done, it is just a “potential” deal. But a reporter with Rapoport’s credentials isn’t going to just make up something like this out of thin air so there must be some fire, if only a tiny flame, to go with the smoke.

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.
Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.
In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.
It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.

Special thanks to Redskins Nation for the video.
Three weeks from right now, Kirk Cousins will either have a new long-term deal or he will be playing on the tag. Which will it be?
Thanks for participating. Feel free to leave your comments here on the site or just respond to the tweet. Thanks.
