For the end of May there is plenty to talk about at Redskins OTAs.
From Josh Doctson to new coaches, Matt Jones, and much more, here is a collection of the three best quotes from the week.
- Calming fears - Josh Doctson sat out the second half of Wednesday's OTA session, and immediately, fans on social media started to freak out. Doctson missed the bulk of his rookie season with a lingering Achilles injury, and it all began last year during OTAs. Jay Gruden tried as quickly as he could to shut down that thought process.
It had nothing to do with that, don’t worry.
- Roster battle - The Redskins signed Brian Quick this offseason to bolster their receiving group, but don't be so sure about his roster spot. The team has Terrelle Pryor, Doctson and Jamison Crowder as roster locks, and coaches like and know Mo Harris and Ryan Grant. Where does that leave Quick? Gruden talked about it.
We have a number of receivers that are battling. If we played tomorrow, we could only dress five, it would be a really, really hard decision right now. So special teams will become part of that obviously but we have got great options right now and it’s a matter of keeping them healthy and giving them all opportunities from now until the fourth preseason game after training camp and seeing who the best ones are, who makes the most plays.
- Traveling man - Last season much noise was made about the defensive decision not to have Josh Norman cover opposing team's top wideouts. New defensive coordinator Greg Manusky seemed to sign a different tune about letting Norman "travel" with top WRs rather than just play left or right corner.
There is some people – from the perspective of a corner – it’s hard for them to travel at times, but will we do that? Yeah.
Bonus quote: Zach Brown, after revealing he enjoyed Baywatch the Movie, asked if he would vote for The Rock for President, "I don’t know about that one."
