The Redskins have "made inquiries" about restricted free agent WR Andrew Hawkins.
"Baby Hawk" has a coaching staff connection in D.C. after playing the past three seasons under ex-Bengals OC Jay Gruden. As Cincy only extended him an "original pick" tender -- and Hawkins was originally undrafted -- the Redskins would not have to fork over draft pick compensation were they to sign him to an offer sheet, and the Bengals failed to match. Hawkins is pint sized at 5-foot-7, 180, but when healthy is one of the most exciting players in the NFL.
Dianna Marie Russini of NBC Washington reports free agent ILB Perry Riley will re-sign with the Redskins.

There are no details available, but Riley has been a priority for the Skins to re-sign since the end of last year. Riley was originally targeting "Dannell Ellerbe money," or nearly $7 million annually. Unless Dan Snyder is ponying up one of his classic overpays, Riley ought to come in closer to $5 million a year.
