Predicting the members of the Redskins practice squad for 2019 after roster cuts
WR Darvin Kidsy
It makes sense to keep a couple of receivers on the practice squad given the unproven nature of the group. Kidsy makes sense as the complement to Cam Sims.
Kidsy was solid early on in the preseason and it really looked like he would have a chance to emerge as a top backup. He had chemistry with Dwayne Haskins, inside/outside versatility, and special teams ability.
However, Kidsy faded a bit as the preseason went along. Guys like Steven Sims Jr. and Robert Davis were able to pass him on the depth chart. As a result, he wasn’t able to make the final roster, but another year of practice squad seasoning could be good news for him.
Jehu Chesson could also occupy this spot if the Redskins want to keep a special teams ace around, but Kidsy’s upside as a pass-catcher is simply better. For that reason, he gets the nod here.
This is a pretty solid practice squad and the ‘Skins could elevate some of these guys after they place certain players on injury lists. We’ll see how this unit shakes out, but this wouldn’t be a bad result for the Redskins.
