Redskins Leaning Chase Young At No. 2 Overall

Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera made it sound as though the team is leaning heavily toward selecting Ohio State defensive end Chase Young with the second overall pick in this month's draft. It's been their expected pick all along ever since analysts starting doing mock NFL drafts. Will another team desperate for a quarterback step up and overwhelm the 'Skins with a trade to move back? It's possible, but we'll have to wait until later this month to find out. Washington could certainly use a game-changing pass-rusher off the edge, which is exactly what Young should be at the next level.

Redskins Excited About Logan Thomas

Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera said that tight ends coach Pete Hoerner is really excited about tight end Logan Thomas because of his smarts, savvy and athletic ability. Thomas made the switch from quarterback to tight end several years ago, but he's still in the process of learning the position. The 28-year-old former fourth-round pick of the Cardinals in 2014 had a career-high 16 catches for 173 yards and a touchdown in 16 games (three starts) for the Lions in 2019. Despite the departure of Jordan Reed, Thomas will likely be behind Jeremy Sprinkle for aerial targets in 2020, putting him off the fantasy radar in this rebuilding offense next season. But he's a name to mark down in dynasty/keeper leagues.

Antonio Brown Charged In Florida Assault

Free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown was charged with felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief charges for an alleged January assault that resulted in the former All-Pro's arrest. The misdemeanor battery charge states that Brown was "actually and intentionally striking" a delivery truck driver against his will. It's possible the state of Florida will offer him the chance to work out a plea deal. The NFL opened an investigation of Brown in the fall when his former trainer Britney Taylor accused him of rape and sexual assault in a civil lawsuit. No matter what transpires with Brown's charges, he's expected to be punished by the NFL, and it remains to be seen if any team will give him another chance in 2020 or beyond.

Brandon Scherff Signing Franchise Tender

Washington Redskins three-time Pro Bowl offensive guard Brandon Scherff is signing his $15-plus million franchise tender on Tuesday, according to a source. If there is a training camp, he will be required to be there. Scherff, 28, has missed most of the past two seasons due to injuries -- 19 games played over that span -- but he is one of the better offensive guards in the NFL when he's on the field. Locking him up long-term is next on the agenda for Washington, and his services will be needed on the offensive line with young quarterback Dwayne Haskins under center.

Ronald Darby Agrees With Redskins

The Washington Redskins agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with cornerback Ronald Darby on Sunday, according to a source. Darby will likely compete for a starting spot in D.C. The 26-year-old former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2015 spent the last three seasons in Philadelphia, but he played in just 28 games over that span due to various injuries. Darby had 37 tackles (34 solo), two interceptions and 11 passes defensed in his 11 games played for the Eagles in 2019. Washington's defense will try to improve on their showing from last season, and having head coach Ron Rivera should help them in that effort.
