NFL Preseason Schedule 2019: Redskins announce preseason opponents

The 2019 NFL preseason is still a few months away, but the Washington Redskins now know who and where they will play when the preseason schedule begins in August.

The Redskins' opponents for the 2019 preseason include the Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, Atlanta Falcons, and Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Tuesday afternoon.

The Redskins will start the preseason in Cleveland against Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr. and the new--look Browns, before returning to D.C. for a date with Jay Gruden's former Bengals team. A road game against the Atlanta Falcons follows, with the annual showdown against the Ravens taking place at FedEx Field to finish up the preseason schedule.

The Redskins last faced the Browns in the preseason in 2015, the Falcons in 2016 and the Bengals in 2017. This will be the seventh consecutive preseason in which the Redskins and Ravens meet.

All four Redskins preseason games will be broadcast on NBC Sports Washington.

The times for the Redskins preseason games have yet to be released.

Browns GM admits trade talks with Redskins' Bruce Allen but 'takes two to tango'

Browns GM admits trade talks with Redskins' Bruce Allen but 'takes two to tango'

As the days inch closer to the NFL Trade Deadline on October 29th, the Redskins still sit with a giant hole on their roster as standout tackle Trent Williams continues his holdout. 

It doesn't have to be that way, but Redskins Team President Bruce Allen has said repeatedly he doesn't intend to trade Williams this year. And judging by the words from Browns GM John Dorsey right, Allen is telling the truth. 

"We’ve had a few conversations,'’ Dorsey said via Cleveland.com. "It takes two to tango."

The indication being Allen rebuffed the conversation, which is similar to what sources said during training camp that at least three AFC teams called to inquire about Williams and were told there was no discussion to be had. Well, the clock is ticking, and as each day passes, it makes less and less sense to have Williams in Washington. Or more accurately, to have Williams under contract with Washington but not actually in Washington.

Cleveland is certainly interested, Dorsey made that clear. At 2-4, his team is underperforming against expectations, and star second-year QB Baker Mayfield has been sacked 16 times in six games. Dorsey knows he needs to bolster the Browns offensive line. 

"It’s a hard position to acquire, especially at this time of year. We’ll make a million phone calls. We’ll constantly work the phones," Dorsey said. "If nothing happens, we’ll move onto the next project. If we think we can improve the position, we’ll make a move if it’s right for this organization."

Compensation will be key as the Williams situation unfolds. The team will want a lot for the seven-time Pro Bowler and some teams might be unwilling to pay with a first-rounder. Williams is under contract for through 2020, but might want a new deal or more guaranteed money in his current contract. 

The calls will keep coming to Ashburn asking about WIlliams. The question will be if Allen will pick them up.

Landon Collins earns NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Landon Collins earns NFC Defensive Player of the Week

The wins just keep piling up in Washington, D.C.

Maybe that's not totally true for the Washington Redskins, but they are certainly moving in the right direction. The NFL announced Wednesday that Redskins safety Landon Collins won the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award after his dominant performance Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

Collins did a little bit of everything in the Redskins' 17-16 win over the Dolphins, recording 12 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and two passes defensed. 10 of his tackles were solo and one was for a loss.

He was the only NFC player this week to record a sack, a pass defensed and a forced fumble.

Collins has now won Defensive Player of the Week four times in his career. He received the first three honors while a member of the New York Giants and had not won the award since Week 11 of the 2017 season. Collins is the first Redskin to receive the award since linebacker Keenan Robinson in Week 7 of 2014.

He is enjoying a strong start to his first season with the Redskins, as Collins is tied for third in the NFL and tied for second in the NFC for solo tackles. Collins is tied for seventh in the NFL and sixth in the NFC for combined tackles as well.

With Washington, D.C. in the winning spirit lately, between the Nationals getting to the World Series and the Mystics winning the WNBA Finals, hopefully Collins' and the Redskins' Week 6 performances are signs of more to come.
