A healthier Keenan Robinson adjusts to larger role as leader of defense

Outside linebackers coach will not keep his position under new defensive coordinator Joe Barry.

Jay Gruden says the Redskins will continue to use a 3-4 defensive front, but mix up how they deploy it. Plus some early thoughts on which assistants and players stay.

The fifth-year inside linebacker believes that both he and Washington’s defense as a whole will take significant leaps forward this season.

Jay Gruden wanted to find coaches he had worked with in the past, and others from a wide range of backgrounds.

Taking questions for an hour, the first-year head coach discussed a wide range of topics from the QB to his staff and everything in between.

Team also announces that it's keeping Jacob Burney as defensive line coach and has hired Kirk Olivadotti as inside linebackers coach.

Former longtime assistant had been at the University of Georgia the last three seasons.
