The 2019 NFL season is still months away, but moves right now will have a big impact on the Washington Redskins season.

Here is a rundown of the key free agent moves and transactions around the league that will affect the Redskins in 2019.

REDSKINS MOVES

OL Ereck Flowers

The Giants' first-round pick in 2015, Flowers never lived up to his potential in New York and was released last October. After a brief stint in Jacksonville, Flowers joins the Redskins on a reported one-year, $4 million deal.

WR Brian Quick

The veteran wideout is back for a third season in Washington, his agency announced Monday. Quick started three games for the Redskins in 2018, catching three passes. 

RB Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson, after revitalizing his career in 2018, has re-signed with the Redskins, Craig Hoffman confirms. (contract details).

QB Case Keenum

Even before the NFL's "legal tampering period" began, the Redskins added a quarterback via a trade with the Denver Broncos, sending a sixth-round pick in the 2020 draft for Case Keenum and a seventh-round pick in 2020.

Landon Collins

Washington made an early splash in free agency, signing Landon Collins to a massive six-year, $84 million deal with $44.5 million in partial guarantees. The Redskins were able to get the deal done despite their salary cap crunch thanks to some contract wizardry, and the hard-hitting safety will only carry a $4 million cap hit in 2019.

CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Fresh out of retirement, the Redskins made a shock announcement on Friday March 15 they have signed the soon-to-be 33-year-old cornerback

RB Byron Marshall

106.7 The Fan's Craig Hoffman reported the Redskins have tendered Byron Marshall and the running back accepted (contract details).

REDSKINS LOSSES

OT Ty Nsekhe

A versatile reserve lineman for the Redskins over the last four seasons, Ty Nsekhe signed a reported two-year, $14.5 million deal ($7.7 million in guarantees) with the Bills. 

WR Jamison Crowder

The Redskins lost Jamison Crowder, their fourth-round pick in 2015, who signed with the New York Jets (contract details).

OLB Preston Smith

On the second day of the tampering period, Washington lost pass rusher Preston Smith to the Green Bay Packers (contract details).

S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

After coming over in the middle of the 2018 season in a trade with the Packers, Clinton-Dix heads to the Chicago Bears (details). 

WR Maurice Harris​

The Redskins decided not to tender the 26-year-old wide receiver, who was scooped up by the Patriots (details). 

MISSED OPPORTUNITIES​

RB Le'Veon Bell

The Redskins were reportedly a "possible" landing spot for the former Steelers running back, but Bell ended up with the favored Jets, agreeing to a four-year, $52.5 million deal ($35 million guaranteed) to join New York.

ILB C.J. Mosley

Washington was in the market for the top inside linebacker, but after making a significant financial commitment to Landon Collins, fell out of the race for C.J. Mosley, who signed a massive five-year, $85 million deal ($51 million guaranteed) with the Jets.

WR DeSean Jackson

Former Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson heads back to another of his former teams in a trade that sent him from the Buccaneers to the Eagles. 

WR John Brown

In need of offensive weapons, wide receiver John Brown may have been a fit in Washington, but he signed a three-year, $27 million deal with the Buffalo Bills.

WR Cole Beasley

Redskins get a boost with Cole Beasley leaving their NFC East rivals in Dallas, but nothing more as the slot receiver signed a deal worth $29 million over four years in Buffalo.
