Here is what you need to know on this Saturday, April 12, 26 days before the NFL draft.

Nickel coverage

Here are the top five players trending on Redskins Talk this week.

Robert Griffin IIIThe logo. Among fans, the two camps are “hate it” and “don’t care”.

Ryan Clark—Yes, he talked about “the logo” in an appearance on ESPN. His comment? “So what”. In the same appearance he also mentioned that Griffin was leading the way in sprints during the workouts that started this week.

DeSean Jackson—Again, Redskins Nation is a house divided here, over Jackson’s absence from the start of team workouts. “It’s a terrible start” was one opinion and “who cares” was the other. Clark, who went to Connecticut to work his “other” job on the ESPN set after attending the first two days of the conditioning sessions, was in the “who cares” on this one, too.

Jay Gruden—Although he can’t yet get out of the field with his players yet, the new coach was able to meet with his players and talk about football.

Rob Jackson—Everyone was wondering why it took the Redskins so long to bring him back and if he will get a bigger role than he got during his disappointing 2013 season.

In case you missed it

    Rich: Is there a list of all the Redskins who have missed any time of the Work Outs to date, or is D Jackson the only one to miss time?

      Deangelo Hall missed as well I believe he had a family trip scheduled prior to resigning with the team or knowing the OTA dates.

      There is not a list because the workouts–that’s what they are, conditioning workouts, no plays being run–are voluntary. No media there to take attendance. Not sure what we would report if we found someone missing because they are, you know, voluntary workout.

      I do know that Hall was a Disney World because, I think, his kids’ spring break was this week. And Clark went to Bristol to work his other job at ESPN after the session on Tuesday.

      Voluntary workouts, people. Give it a rest.

        That was my point, if the press was going to report on D Jackson missing the voluntary work outs, then why didn’t they report on all the guys who missed? Not sure where I read about D Jackson missing, it could have been a Philly reporter who wrote the story I read but it sure did take a dim view of him missing it. As for me my only concern was what kind of shape LeRibues was in and most reports I have seen said he looked good. Archives
