Jay Gruden said Trey Quinn has the slot spot locked down. Zero surprise considering uncertainty over who would be next.
Quinn is just 72nd on our WR list but will certainly be available later in drafts for anyone who wants to take a shot at any upside. He replaces Jamison Crowder. A few guys will get reps there, including UDFA Steven Sims. Cam Sims said he's worked there too; he's learning all three spots, the tweet went on to say.
Trey Quinn could be in for a big year as the starting slot receiver and No. 1 punt returner. He’s got big cleats to fill as he attempts to replace free agent departure Jamison Crowder, but Quinn, the final selection of the 2018 draft, elicited high praise from both head coach Jay Gruden and wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard for a strong spring performance.
Trey Quinn suffered a high-ankle sprain last September and spent the majority of his rookie season on IR. He's looking like the guy to man the slot in Washington this season and has already received high praise from coach Jay Gruden, as he stated "I'm ready to watch Trey Quinn jump in that slot role and dominate the position. I'm excited for him."
Quinn is someone to watch in training camp and could be a valuable late-round flier, especially in PPR formats.
The Redskins only have 52 players on their roster and therefore only needed six inactives.
Thompson returns to action this week and likely continues to play behind Adrian Peterson in the run game. Thompson should get back to his third down, pass-catching role, but is probably a risky play his first week back.
