Redskins' Brandon Scherff: Stuck without extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherff and Washington were unable to come to terms on a long-term deal prior to the July 15 deadline, Nicki Jhabvala The Frederick News-Post reports.

Scherff is now locked into playing the 2020 season via a one-year, guaranteed $14.8 million salary. He and Washington won't be eligible to revisit contract negotiations until the end of the 2020 regular season, and the team will have the option of placing a second, higher cost franchise tag on Scherff again in 2021. Since joining the franchise as the fifth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Scherff has been named to three Pro Bowls and solidified himself as one of the league's top interior linemen.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherff agreed Tuesday to sign his franchise tender with Washington, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 28-year-old guard is thus in line to earn more than $15 million in 2020. Scherff joined Washington in 2015, after the team selected him fifth overall in the NFL Draft. The 6-foot-5, 315-pounder has earned three Pro Bowl nods (2016, 2017 and 2019) to date.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherff (shoulder) was given the franchise tag Saturday by the Redskins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This felt like an inevitable conclusion given Scherff has emerged as one of the best guards in the NFL and had not yet come to terms on a new deal. The Redskins will now have ample time to negotiate an extension with their 2015 first-round pick.

A Pro Bowler in 2016 and 2017, Scherff was limited to eight games last season after a torn pectoral muscle sent him to injured reserve in early November.

Scherff is locked in as the starter at right guard.

Casey Dunn is listed as the official backup at both guard positions.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherff is expected to have torn his pectoral in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, but he'll have an MRI on Monday to confirm, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Scherff exited with his injury on Sunday and it was initially thought to be a shoulder issue. If he does have a torn pectoral, he'll be done for the season. Casey Dunn is likely to slide into the starting lineup if Scherff is ultimately ruled out for an extended period.
