Redskins sign Ioannidis to multiyear extension

Thu Apr 18 6:49pm ET

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins have signed defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis to a multiyear contract extension.

The team announced the deal Thursday. Ioannidis started nine games last season and finished third on the Redskins with a career-high 7+ sacks.

Ioannidis, 25, has become a regular in Washington's defensive line rotation after being selected in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. In three NFL seasons, the Temple product has 66 tackles, 12 sacks, two forced fumbles and one recovery in 38 games.

With homegrown Ioannidis, Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, Tim Settle and 2018 pickup Caleb Brantley, the Redskins could have five defensive linemen 25 or younger next season.

Player Notes
DaeSean Hamilton May 22 1:00pm ET

Denver Broncos second-year wide receiver Daesean Hamilton said he is building chemistry with quarterback Joe Flacco during organized team activities. "Were getting all the reps together and building that chemistry. Working with Joe so far has been great. Throughout training camp and OTAs, hes had great command of the offense and is putting us in the right positions as an offense," Hamilton said. The 24-year-old will look to have a bigger role in 2019 after catching 30 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games in his rookie season.

Leighton Vander Esch May 22 12:50pm ET

Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl linebacker Leighton Vander Esch (pelvis) is being held out of organized team activities this week due to a pelvic injury. It's likely nothing serious and the Cowboys are holding him out as a precaution. The 23-year-old proved in his rookie season that he needs to be on the field more often, recording 140 tackles and two interceptions. He'll surely be on the IDP radar in his sophomore season.

Courtland Sutton May 22 12:50pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton is aiming to improve in the red zone heading into his second NFL season. Last year, 176 players had more than Sutton's two red-zone catches (both touchdowns) and 80 wideouts had more than his eight targets inside the 20. Personally in the red zone, I think Im one of the biggest threats that (defensive backs) go against, Sutton said. Every DB that I played against or will play against will probably say the same thing. They might not show it, but they know. At 6-foot-4, 216 pounds, the second-year wideout will be looking to break out with quarterback Joe Flacco now under center.

Greg Olsen May 22 12:40pm ET

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen (foot) said he's been cleared for everything and moved around well during organized team activities on Wednesday. The aging Olsen missed seven games in 2018 and ended on Injured Reserve. He's missed 16 games the last two seasons, but he has the potential to be one of the better fantasy tight ends if he can just stay healthy. Olsen had three straight 1,000-yard seasons from 2014 to 2016. He'll be a risk/reward TE1 in what could easily be his final season in the NFL.

Cam Newton May 22 12:40pm ET

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that there is still no timetable on quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder), but he is "very optimistic" that Newton will be ready by training camp. Newton didn't throw at organized team activities on Wednesday as the team continues to play it safe with him after he had offseason surgery for the second straight year. Shoulder issues will make Newton less desirable in fantasy in 2019, but he still has high upside as a QB1 if he can finally put his arm issues behind him once and for all.

C.J. Mosley May 22 12:30pm ET

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner is aiming to become the league's highest paid linebacker. Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley will make $17 million a year on his new deal. Wagner made $10.750 million per season on his previous deal. He'll turn 29 in June and is entering the final year of his current deal in 2019. Wagner can be a lockdown player in both the run and pass game, but it remains to be seen if Seattle will accommodate his lofty demands for his next deal. He is attending voluntary organized team activities but won't participate without a new deal.

Antonio Brown May 21 7:43pm ET
