Early this week, I previewed the 2018 Dallas Cowboys. Now, we are moving on to our nations Capitol, Washington, DC. Last season, Kirt Cousins was playing the 2017 season under the franchise tag playing for a new contract in 2018.

After the Washington Redskins went 7-9 and placed third in the NFC East, the Washington Redskins decided to part ways with the seven-year quarterback out of Michigan State. Now, heading into the 2018 season under fifth-year head coach Jay Gruden the Redskins are searching for Cousins replacement as the starting quarterback position.

Currently on the Redskins depth chart at quarterback is Colt McCoy and Alex Smith who was traded from the Kansas City Chiefs to the Washington Redskins. Another quarterback that was involved in a trade was Kenny Hogan, who for the last two seasons has been the backup quarterback for the Cleveland Browns.

The Washington Redskins don’t have long to find the next starting quarterback for the upcoming 2018 regular season. Their search begins tomorrow when the Redskins take on the Patriots. That game can be seen at 7:30 PM ET on the NFL Network and local broadcasts with the Washington Redskins and New England Patriots. Make sure to check local listings.

Then, after the preseason, the season kicksoff with the Washington Redskins will travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals.

Bills Put O.J. Simpson’s #32 Back in Rotation for First Time Since 1977

O.J. Simpson

For the first time since 1977 the Buffalo Bills have put #32, the number famously associated with O.J. Simpson, back into circulation and new free agent signee Senorise Perry is now wearing the number during OTAs, according to ESPN.

“I thought it was retired, but then I was told it was available. Boom, I took it,” Perry said of the number, according to The Athletic.

“I know the situation. I know that greatness comes with that number, playing in Buffalo. But I’m willing to take anything that comes my way. I’m going into my sixth year, and I know what it takes to get in this league and stay here. With that number on my back, I know I’m doing well for my family.”

Simpson rushed for 10,183 yards and 57 touchdowns, leading the NFL in rushing four times during his nine seasons playing for the Bills, but his post-career life has been marred with numerous troubles with the law and his controversial trial, and outcomes, stemming from the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, which he was acquitted for in 1995, but found liable by civil court for wrongful death.

Simpson, 71, was sentenced to prison in 2008 for armed robbery and kidnapping after entering a Las Vegas hotel room to recover stolen memorabilia items, and paroled in 2017.

“Whatever they do is fine with me,” Simpson said, according to the Athletic. “That’s how I feel. When I played there, I tried to honor the team. Since I left, I always tried to honor the Bills.

“And, to be honest, it’s not something I think about. There’s too much else going on in life.”

Simpson’s number was never retired, although he is on the team’s Wall of Fame at New Era Field.
