Jay Gruden said in January that February would be a big month for wide receiver Josh Doctson, who missed all of his rookie year with Achilles’ tendon injuries. And as the month draws to a close, the Redskins and Doctson have received encouraging news.

To date, the team hasn't engaged in talks with any of its players with expiring contracts. But a lack of activity doesn't reflect a lack of interest, or that the Redskins are content to let all of those players test the free agent market.

MAILBAG | Almost one week away from the franchise player tag deadline, and there are no indications that Kirk Cousins and the Redskins are any closer on an agreement on a long-term deal than they were back when the season ended in January.

"I think you sign him, and that’s your guy,” says NFL Network analyst and former coach Steve Mariucci.

Washington could stand to upgrade its offensive line, but needs to be smart with its spending.

Here's one likely scenario, and two long shots, if the Redskins move on from Kirk Cousins.

If Washington can't come to an agreement with one or both of its star wide receivers, there are a pair of free agents who mimic their skills and are a bit younger.

Team officials are thinking long term, but still prepared to label the quarterback a franchise player -- just like last season -- if the two sides can't reach an agreement.
