The Washington Redskins have have exercised the fifth-year option on Guard Brandon Schreff, per Senior NFL Reporter Albert Breer.
Per source, the Redskins have exercised the fifth-year option on two-time Pro Bowl G Brandon Schreff. He's now under contract through 2019.

It’s a relief for Redskins fans to know that their two-time Pro Bowl Guard will be with them for at least the 2019 season. The Iowa Hawkeyes product has missed two games since being drafted in first-round in the 2016 NFL draft. A knee injury caused Schreff to miss two games in the 2017 season.
Pro Football Focus ranked Schreff 8th amongst all NFL guards.
Schreff could very well be the highest paid guard in the NFL, if the Redskins agree to a long-term deal. As for now the Redskins turn their focus on who they will draft, which is just 10 days away.
