Depth Chart
A talented and physical running back that set the NCAA single-season rushing record (427 yards) in 2014, Perine landed in an interesting spot behind Rob Kelley in the Redskins backfield. With a comparison of Michael Turner by some NFL scouts, Perine does not have the shiftiness of a Le'Veon Bell or the burst of a young Adrian Peterson, but he is a powerful runner similar to Kelley that will fit will in Jay Gruden's rushing scheme. He's the favorite to spell Kelley on early downs and has an outside shot to take over the starting role at some point during the season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Matt Jones fighting for roster spot
Redskins taking six RBs to training camp
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 28, 10:30 am

Washington Redskins
As it stands, the Redskins will carry six backs into training camp next month in Richmond: Kelley, Perine, third-down specialist Chris Thompson, Brown, Matt Jones and Keith Marshall. Jordan wants to see Jones fight to distinguish himself among them. "Matt has played some football and made some plays for us early in his career. So now, it’s about just rekindling what he had before." (Washington Post)

FFToday's Take: Jones was benched midway through last season for fumbling issues and didn't take it very well. The Redskins reportedly attempted to trade Jones prior to the draft and Jones missed voluntary workouts this off-season. For now, he's on the outside looking in at Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Thompson.

Matt Jones awaiting trade or release
No-show for voluntary workouts

Running back Matt Jones remained a no-show as the Redskins kicked off their second week of voluntary offseason practices. The third-year pro isn’t expected to attend any of the remaining five voluntary sessions (two more this week, and three next week). (Washington Post)

FFToday's Take: Jones was reportedly told by coaches that he's no longer in their plans so the running back is working out on his own while he awaits his release. Rob Kelley and rookie Samaje Perine are candidates for early-down work while Chris Thompson is expected to be the third-down back. Jones is talented enough to hook on with another team and should do so at some point this pre-season.
