Redskins HC Jay Gruden says he’s still hoping to get RB Samaje Perine involved int heir offense, even though he’s struggled to carve out a role and will have Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice to compete with. 

“The guy I want to see, who everyone thinks is in my doghouse, is Samaje,” Gruden said, via “Samaje has not gotten the opportunities, I’m upset about that; that’s my fault. But I have not given up on Samaje. He’s young; he’s strong; he’s physical. And I need to see him take that next step, and I have to give him that opportunity to do that, and it’s going to be hard with Guice and AP in there to get him the ball. That’ll be a tough dynamic, but I have to get that done.

  • According to Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, the Redskins are more desperate for a quarterback than they’re letting on. 
  • Freeman mentions that Washington could trade up to select Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins
  • Washington is also worth watching as a destination for Cardinals QB Josh Rosen.
  • According to Albert Breer, the Redskins have done homework on the quarterbacks and could consider trading up for someone like Dwayne Haskins.
