A few quick nuggets to get your Tuesday morning started:
--There are eight players eligible for the supplemental draft and one of them, Josh Gordon, was a wide receiver at Baylor with Robert Griffin III. But I wouldn’t look for the Redskins to take him. Besides receiver being a very crowded spot already, Gordon was suspended after a drug arrest at Baylor. The Redskins have their fill of that issue and it is doubtful they will add another. We’ll take a closer look at the others when the draft gets closer.
--I was a lot more wishy-washy than I usually am when predicting who will make the team on the offensive line. The last two spots are going to be tough to pick and it may come down to a matter if deciding on potential vs. experience. Things may get more clear when they put the pads on in training camp.
--I had a reader ask me about the possibility of signing Nick Collins, the ex-Packers safety who had spinal fusion surgery last fall. He’s a quality player and only 28 but the neck surgery is the obvious issue. They say he has been cleared to play but the Redskins, and many other teams, aren’t inclined to take the risk. I understand that Collins’ surgery was done to different vertebrae than was Peyton Manning’s and that Collins’ was in a risker area.
--Fred Davis has signed his franchise player tender and the deadline for him to sign a long-term deal is July 16. It is, however, extremely unlikely that Davis will be getting a new, multi-year contract. He is going to have to demonstrate that he can stay out of trouble before the Redskins are going to write him a big signing bonus check.
