Dont we have 2 round 5 picks? Our original and from Stephone Anthony trade?

And we have conditional 6th round from Adrian Peterson
I modify the 5th round pick, but still I don't see a confirmation about Adrian Peterson 6th round.. I know it is conditional, I will add it later once i confirm it.

Thanks for your feedback.

70005 - Dude, Metry is kinda awesome...
Online
Jan 15, 2018 Signed QB Garrett Grayson
For why? Is he really the best camp arm out there? I'd hope we can get an UDFA QB to sign before trying this again. He just never got any better and I want to see what Taysom Hill can do under center. I know the 4th QB is really only signed so we don't wear out everyones' arms in camp, but it just seems like there has to be someone better than Garrett Grayson to man that spot.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orlando_Franklin

On Orlando Franklin's wiki page it says he signed a deal on 1/19/2018 with the Skins, the same day you've got him signing with us. Do you know which is correct? I'm not doubting you or wherever you got the info from, I just can't find anything that lists him as a Saint in 2018 - just the signing from 2017 where we kept him for a week.

Rotoworld has him signing with the Skins on 1/19 as well.

Redskins signed OG Orlando Franklin to a reserve/future contract.
Franklin spent most of the year out of the league before signing with the Redskins in October. He was released after one appearance, making him eligible for a futures deal. Franklin was a six-year starter prior to this season and provides veteran insurance with Trent Williams recovering from knee surgery. It's a low-risk flyer for Washington. Jan 19 - 5:05 PM

Anyway, thanks for all the work you put into this thread every year. It's the only go-to sticky I use in the off-season.
