It's the dawn of a new beginning in Washington, as the Kirk Cousins era is over and Alex Smith takes the reigns. They need to really stock up on some skill players if they want to compete with the Philadelphia Eagles coming off their first Super Bowl win.
Looks like the Redskins have their sights set on one of the top wide receivers available in free agency in soon-to-be former Jacksonville Jaguar Allen Robinson.

Robinson missed almost all of the 2017 campaign with a torn ACL, but he is still only 24 years old and has proven he can be an elite wide out. Before a bit of a down year in 2016, Robinson went off for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015.
Today is the deadline for the Jags to franchise tag Robinson, and it looks unlikely that will happen, so he'll hit the free agent market.

The Redskins, after a failed experiment with Terrelle Pryor, have Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder as their leading wide receivers, and that's a pretty solid duo.
Adding Robinson to the mix would allow Crowder to move to the slot, making that trio one of the most dynamic in the NFL.
