After losing multiple key contributors on both sides of the ball, the Washington Redskins are keeping one of their own. According to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington, the Skins have re-signed former Pro Bowl linebacker Zach Brown.
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the deal is said to be worth up to $24 million for three seasons.
The former 49er becomes the Browns’ lead back (for now), joining QB Tyrod Taylor in a new-look backfield. However both players could be bridge and/or backup options if GM John Dorsey is able to get Saquon Barkley and/or a rookie quarterback with his pair of top-five draft selections.
Jerick McKinnon agrees to a four-year, $30 million deal with the 49ers.
The Vikings’ third-down back now likely assumes the same role in San Francisco and may get the bigger role he covets given Hyde is on his way out of town. The Niners currently have no clear-cut starter, but Kyle Shanahan tends to employ multiple backs.?
The Lions drafted Whitehead in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Temple. The Lions have added linebackers Devon Kennard and Christian Jones in free agency, making Whitehead expendable.
The addition of Whitehead would be the first on the defensive side of the ball for the Raiders this offseason.
Ninety-five percent of the questions have been football-related with me, or about his personality, Riley says.
Responsibilities at the line of scrimmage, protections, the stuff that’s tough to pick up on film. Communication in the meeting room, installing new plays.
I haven’t been asked a whole lot about the off-the-field stuff. They asked how he handled that stuff behind the scenes. I think they’re interested in the aftermath, when he did have a mistake, how did he handle it and how was it received by the team.
