Josh Wilson Restructures Deal with Washington Redskins
April 26th, 2013 at 6:24 PM
The Washington Redskins have restructured cornerback Josh Wilson's contract and will save approximately two million against the cap. He finished last season with 74 tackles, one sack, and two interceptions in a much maligned Redskin's secondary.  Wilson came over from the Baltimore Ravens after the 2010 season, and is entering his...

Washington Redskins Address Secondary, Sign Cornerback E.J. Biggers
March 20th, 2013 at 1:17 PM
Washington Redskins fans have been pining for some cornerback help this offseason.  It seems they have finally received that help.  The team has reached an agreement with E.J. Biggers, according to the Washington Post. Biggers was a seventh round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Western Michigan University.  He...

Washington Redskins to Part Ways with Cornerback DeAngelo Hall
March 11th, 2013 at 4:34 PM
DeAngelo Hall, the outspoken cornerback of the Washington Redskins, has been released by the team according to a text sent to ESPN's Josina Anderson.  He had two years remaining on a six-year, $54 million dollar deal. The writing was on the wall yesterday after the Redskins resigned several of their own...

Washington Redskins Release CB D.J. Johnson
February 6th, 2013 at 1:35 PM
It seems as if the Washington Redskins aren't wasting time in getting the offseason underway.  The team announced today that it has waived cornerback Domonique "D.J." Johnson. Washington signed the former Jackson State product to their practice squad in Week 8 of the regular season.  A rash of injuries and suspensions...

A Big Win for the Redskins Could Spark Big Things to Come
November 20th, 2012 at 11:19 AM
***PHOTO1***  Thankfully I was wrong about the Redskins with my last article in which I thought the Eagles might rally around rookie quarterback Nick Foles.  My reason behind that theory was sound, the Redskins love to make first time starters look like Hall of Famers.  However, this was not the case...

A Case for the Washington Redskins to Part from DeAngelo Hall
October 31st, 2012 at 4:38 PM
Production has always had value in the NFL, but there comes a time when a player's attitude nullifies it. For DeAngelo Hall, that time has come and gone, and should once again be considered. He's the one remaining "me guy" left on the roster and it might be time to...

The Redskins at St. Louis is an Extreme Example of the NFL Needing to Bring Back the Regular Officials
September 18th, 2012 at 9:51 AM
***PHOTO1*** Unlike some folks out there I'm not going to blame the Redskins 31-28 loss to the Rams on the officials.  The officiating on both sides was horrendous.  However, I will say the outcome would have been completely different had the regular NFL Refs were overseeing this game. For one thing...

Washington Redskins Hope to Add Versatility to Their Defensive Backfield with New Defensive Backs Coach Raheem Morris
June 6th, 2012 at 5:33 PM
It's safe to say that the Redskins got a pretty good deal when, fresh off a head coaching job, they snagged Raheem Morris to be their new defensive backs coach, even more so considering he was offered a defensive coordinators job for the Minnesota Vikings. Morris has earned a very good...

Washington Redskins Sign Cedric Griffin, per Josina Anderson
March 16th, 2012 at 3:00 PM
According to Josina Anderson, Cedric Griffin's agent, said that Griffin has agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins, worth up to $2.5 million dollars. That's another risk/reward bargain for the Redskins; much like the Brandon Meriweather contract. And go figure, it's another secondary player. ***PHOTO1*** (Heywardy-Bey, post Cedric Griffin hit) Cedric Griffin played all 16 games last season,...

Washington Redskins Would Be Crazy not to Address Cornerback in Free Agency
February 14th, 2012 at 5:06 PM
There's a wealth of cornerbacks entering free agency this year and they come in a wide range of skill sets, with varying price tags. In such a flooded market, as Rich Tandler points out -- "supply and demand," -- their respective contract values will decrease; meaning the Redskins would be crazy not to address the position in free agency. ***PHOTO1*** Whether the Redskins feel the need...

Washington Redskin DeAngelo Hall Answers His Biggest Crittic, Himself
November 30th, 2011 at 12:19 PM
***PHOTO1*** Last week after a disappointing loss to the hated Dallas Cowboys, conerback DeAngelo Hall put the majority of the blame on himself.  He said in so many words that he was better than how he played and that he expected better from himself. Over the course of last week a...

Ex-Washington Redskin Carlos Rogers is Having a Career Season, Already
October 11th, 2011 at 9:00 AM
Everybody in Washington remembers Carlos Rogers for his dropped interceptions. Hard not to when his name was normally mentioned in the same sentence as " And that's why they play defense." Not happy in DC, Rogers looked for more money and respect in free Agency last offseason. Jim Harbaugh and the...

Washington Redskins Players Continue to Get Unfair Media Coverage
October 5th, 2011 at 10:14 AM
 ***PHOTO1*** In the NFC East the Washington Redskins have been the whipping boy for the better part of a decade now, and for the most part it's been well deserved. However, this season the media and their constant bashing of the team as a whole as well as individual players has...

DeAngelo Hall’s Comments on Tony Romo Weren’t Hurtful and are Good for the Game
September 23rd, 2011 at 8:00 AM
 ***PHOTO1*** The National Media has picked up on Washington Redskins' cornerback DeAngelo Hall's comments that he (and the Redskins) were going to target Tony Romo's ribs. The sound bit can be heard or read from many places including, Pro Football Talk, Sports Center, PTI, and Sports Illustrated, just to name a few. A...

August 8th, 2011 at 1:42 PM
 ***PHOTO1*** Last week I brought you the All-Time Washington Redskins on the offensive side of the ball along with the men who helped mold the franchise.  This week completes the list with the All-Time defense and special teams. Special Teams: Punter/Kick Returner: This falls under the obvious category but the All-Time Redskin...

Are the Washington Redskins Using Jets Receiver Santonio Holmes as a Smoke Screen?
July 14th, 2011 at 11:50 AM
To figure out whether the Redskins are using him as a smoke screen, you have to first determine his value to the Redskins and see if he fits. The Washington Redskins are in need a true number one wide receiver, but do the Redskins believe that Santonio Holmes can be that guy?  ***PHOTO1***...

Dan Graziano Answers Fan’s Questions on NFC East and Washington Redskins
July 12th, 2011 at 1:52 PM
If you don't know about Dan Graziano, he is a writer for ESPN NFC East and he does a chat every Tuesday at noon. I was lucky enough to get a two questions in with him earlier today. Some of the questions are serious and some are a joke... it's all fun...

Washington Redskins’ Reggie Jones: “I’m Hungry, Healthy, and Ready to Go!”
July 10th, 2011 at 4:09 PM
***PHOTO1*** The NFL is hopefully entering free agency in the next few week and the Washington Redskins are possibly losing two corners who played significant roles last season; Carlos Rogers, who isn't expected to return and Phillip Buchanon, who's future is also up in the air. The thought around the league is that the Redskins will...

Which Mid-Level Cornerback Should The Washington Redskins Consider: Johnathan Joseph or Antonio Cromartie?
July 8th, 2011 at 12:40 PM
***PHOTO1*** When I say Mid-Level, I'm really speaking to the price. Not Revis or Asomugha money, because the skins really do have to many holes. I originally would have liked the Washington Redskins to sign Nnamdi Asomugha, but then Jason LaCanfora reports that it could take $19+ million per year to sign him. The Skins...

Washington Redskins Robbed in The Top 100 or Not?
July 5th, 2011 at 5:18 PM
Wow... I remember thinking the NFL Top 100 was terrible, and that players voting might not really make since, but only one Washington Redskin made the entire list! REALLY! As sad as it is, Donovan McNabb was that player. Unless the Redskins sign one or two major talents, they will most...
