To update yesterday’s piece about the little-lamented release of Brandon Lloyd by the Redskins, Vinny Cerrato said that Lloyd was indeed designated as a post-June 1 release. That means that the Skins will get charged with the lion’s share of the $7.4 million in accelerated bonus money in…

    I’m an NFL writer. I’m an NFL guy. But I couldn’t possibly be less interested in the alleged NFL “event” going on this weekend. The combine (I refuse to capitalize it) is all over the sports media. There were some 400 media credentials issued for the gathering, more than one for every player participating. Every…

    Although nobody is calling him “The Rock” any more, the longest-tenured current Redskin will be staying around for while longer. Jon Jansen has agreed to restructure his contract. As most of us know, such a deal generally does not cost the player any money. A payment due to a player is reclassified from one category…
