The Redskins also hosted Georgia running back Sony Michel Wednesday, the last day teams could host potential draft picks. The Redskins have expressed an interest to try and upgrade at running back and have shown strong interest in other backs, notably LSU's Derrius Guice. The question becomes when would they pick one -- if indeed they do. At 13 it might be too high for Guice and 44 might be too low for the backs they would consider upgrades. They went to dinner with Guice the night before his Pro Day and also hosted him at Redskins Park. They also hosted Ronald Jones II after attending his makeup Pro Day.

The Redskins also hosted offensive lineman Billy Price on Tuesday. Price was a standout center at Ohio State, but also can play guard. Price could be drafted in the late first or early second round, so he might be gone by the time Washington makes its second-round pick, the 44th choice overall. Price suffered a partially torn pec muscle at the combine, but he's expected to be ready before training camp.

Defensive lineman Vita Vea will visit with the Redskins Wednesday, the last day teams can host prospective draft picks. The Redskins have a strong interest in Vea as well as Da'Ron Payne, who also had visited. Numerous sources caution against putting too much into the visits, but it's still a sign of a certain level of interest. Both players would help the Redskins stop the run; the question for each will be about their ability to impact the pass game as well.

The Redskins re-signed veteran offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom, the team announced. They initially signed him in late October during a flurry of line injuries. He started three games at center, but also can play guard and would mostly provide experienced veteran depth inside. The Redskins remain interested in re-signing guard Shawn Lauvao as well, but nothing has yet been finalized.

As expected, the Redskins picked up the fifth-year option on guard Brandon Scherff, a source confirmed. That's not a surprising move at all (one first reported by SI.com) because of how well Scherff, a two-time Pro Bowler, has played his first three seasons. The key will be whether or not the Redskins extend him. His name was always included when Redskins officials would discuss Kirk Cousins' contract; they wanted to have enough room not only for a good quarterback but to extend players such as Scherff. It's hard to imagine them letting him get away. He's the exact sort of guy teams like to have: good, hard-working and no trouble for coaches.

Linebacker Ryan Anderson will be one to watch this summer. At season's end, coaches talked about him needing to re-shape his body. That's what teammate Ryan Kerrigan saw from him today. "You can tell there's been a change in a good way," Kerrigan said. "Not to say he was doing the wrong things before, but he's doing the right things more frequently and with more consistency."

Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said on a conference call that re-signing Zach Brown is "huge. He obviously was having a tremendous season and unfortunately missed the last three to four games with an injury and he was still top four in the NFL in tackles. It goes to show you the kind of production he brings to the table. You have to have big thumpers who can run in the middle of the defense and that's what he is."

Redskins tight end Vernon Davis said in a conference call that quarterback Alex Smith's game has evolved. The two were teammates in San Francisco from 2006-2012. “His game has elevated. I mean, dramatically. And I say that because of his ability to get in and out of the pocket. He gets the ball downfield. He just places the ball where it needs to be and doing it effectively. Going into his 14th year and to see him playing the way he's playing, it's unbelievable.”

Redskins tight end Vernon Davis said after 12 seasons he hasn't lost his passion for the game. "When I lose that desire, I know it's all over for me. As of yet I haven't lost that desire to go outside and run up and down the field. I feel like a kid all over again."

Running back Derrius Guice is visiting Redskins Park Monday, a source said. Guice had posted on Instagram Sunday night that he was in Washington, D.C. so this isn't a big surprise. The Redskins have been deeply interested in Guice; team president Bruce Allen had dinner with him the night before his pro day at LSU. The question remains as to whether or not they'd use the 13th overall choice on him.They do like a handful of other players in that spot, too. And they could always trade back and then take Guice, if that's who they desire. But they clearly have serious interest in him. Upgrading the running back position will be a priority entering the draft.
