Redskins Not Interested In Dez Bryant?

Twenty-eight NFL teams are now heading into Week 2. Dez Bryant remains unemployed. However, the wide receiver’s made sure to keep social media followers informed on his thoughts about potential fits this offseason and continued to do so Sunday.

One of the teams Bryant name-dropped, however, doesn’t appear to have him on its radar. The Redskins are not interested in bringing in Bryant, despite having multiple depth receivers suffer recent injuries, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington tweets.

This is not the first time Washington’s surfaced as a confirmed non-Bryant suitor, but that hasn’t changed since the offseason. Washington’s dealing with injuries to backups Trey Quinn, Cam Sims and Maurice Harris, per Finlay, who instead foresees a possible reunion with Brian Quick rather than anything transpiring on the Bryant front.

Quinn, a rookie seventh-rounder, and Sims each suffered high ankle sprains during the Redskins’ win over the Cardinals and are out for the foreseeable future. A concussion left Harris inactive Sunday. These three comprise the Redskins’ backup contingent behind Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson. So, Washington will certainly have to make a move at receiver this week.

Bryant expressed interest in joining an NFC East team in order to exact revenge on the Cowboys, whose post-Bryant receiving passing game did not debut well on Sunday, but he’s also turned down two contracts — from the Ravens and Browns. The 29-year-old pass-catcher continues to wait, while at the same time expressing interest in certain situations.

Redskins Sign 14 Undrafted Free Agents

The Redskins are the latest team to ink a crop of undrafted free agents, as they’ve agreed to sign the following 14 players:

Cobbs may be the most notable name on Washington’s list of undrafted free agents, as he was originally viewed as a possible Day 2 pick when he declared for the draft earlier this year. The 6’4″ Cobbs initially broke out for the Hoosiers during the 2015 campaign, when he posted 60 receptions and averaged 17.3 yards per catch. An ankle injury forced Cobb to take a medical redshirt in 2016, but he posted 841 yards and eight touchdowns during his most recent season while earning first-team All-Big Ten honors.

Blanding, meanwhile, led all draft-eligible safeties with 29 run stops, according to Austin Gayle of Pro Football Focus, who listed Blanding among the UDFAs with the best chance to make an impact during their rookie campaigns. The ex-Cavalier managed at least 60 tackles in each of his four collegiate seasons, and put up four interceptions during his senior year.
