The Redskins proposal to stop using the color rush jerseys for Thursday night games might get tabled until May, team president Bruce Allen said. The Redskins introduced the bylaw change and used two words as the reason why: garish uniforms. But Allen said the league might not vote on the measure in Phoenix this week, instead waiting until meetings in May.

Redskins president Bruce Allen re-iterated Sunday night from Phoenix that the team does not want to trade quarterback Kirk Cousins and still believes it can work out a long-term deal. There have been no new offers in a month, one source said. But Allen pointed to options the team has to keep Cousins around for 2018 as well – the franchise tag at $34.5 million or the transition tag at $28 million. Allen said he would not trade Cousins just to get something in return. If he leaves via free agency after 2018, then the Redskins would only receive a third-round compensatory pick.

Redskins president Bruce Allen declined to get into specifics over why the team fired general manager Scot McCloughan. He didn't want to talk about the anonymous quote in the Washington Post citing McCloughan's drinking. "I've never partaken in that," Allen said of anonymous quotes.

Wise calls for Washington to hire black GM (2:17)

Former Redskins running back Tim Hightower visited Washington today, but no deal is in the works as of now, per a source. Hightower played with the Redskins in 2011, before injuring his knee and missing the next three seasons. He spent the last two years with New Orleans. The Redskins have five running backs under contract. They could add another back in the draft or as an undrafted free agent. The Redskins have used this period to meet with veteran backs before, notably Pierre Thomas two years ago. In much the same way, Hightower likely would be viewed as an insurance option down the road.

Free agent RB Tim Hightower is visiting the Redskins on Wednesday, per source – considering a possible reunion after he played there in 2011 before suffering a torn ACL. Hightower, 30, was out of the NFL for three-plus seasons after that because of an undiagnosed infection. But he has made a remarkable recovery with the Saints over the past two years, combining for 923 rushing yards, 329 receiving yards and nine touchdowns as a backup to Mark Ingram. Returning to the Saints is still an option for Hightower, per source. He also visited the 49ers last week and may take one more visit.

Why the Skins might be just fine at wideout

Replacing DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon with Terrelle Pryor is worrisome, but one offensive coordinator has faith in Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson.

The Redskins have re-signed exclusive rights free agent tackle Ty Nsekhe, the team announced. Nsekhe started four games in 2016 and has become a valuable third tackle behind starters Trent William and Morgan Moses.
