    The Redskins have signed Kevin Barnes, their third-round pick in the draft. Terms were not disclosed. Barnes will battle second-year player Just Tryon for playing time as the dime cornerback. A player will have to be released to make room for Barnes. I will pass along word of that as soon as I hear it.…

    The Redskins Broadcast Network has put together a special that is right up my alley. It’s on Channel 4, NBC in Washington this Saturday, July 25 at 7:00 p. m. It looks pretty good, a definite Tivo alert. Here are the video clip and the release that were sent to me. The bronze statues enshrined…

  3. Classic Camp Battles: 1972 Sonny vs. Billy

    Jul 22, 2009, 5:20 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    This was the very height of the Sonny vs. Billy debate. Jurgensen, a future Hall of Famer, had suffered a shoulder injury in a preseason game the previous year. In came Kilmer, a veteran journeyman who was acquired in George Allen’s first trade with the team. All he did was lead Washington to postseason play…

  4. Zorn to let vets sleep at home

    This story came out last week when I was knee deep in getting the book out, but I do want to address it. According to Jason LaCanfora, now of the NFL Network, Jim Zorn is going to let veteran players–those with four or more years of NFL service—spend the night at home during training camp.…

  5. 53: The Wide Receivers

    Comments Off

    Between now and the start of training camp I’ll be making my predictions about who will be on the final 53-man roster for the Washington Redskins–who’s there, who’s in, who’s on the bubble, and who’s out. The predicted roster will be revised and updated as preseason events warrant. Today, the wide receivers: Who’s here Now:…

    Joe Gibbs appeared on the debut of Mike Wise’s show on WJFK radio yesterday. Among the topics he addressed were the trials and tribulations of Jason Campbell, the quarterback that Gibbs himself handpicked to be the signal caller of the future. And here’s what he had to say (as quoted by Dan Steinberg in the…

  7. Potential Camp Phenom: Robert Henson

    Jul 21, 2009, 9:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    A camp phenom, as discussed in an earlier post, is a player who creates a buzz in training camp. He is generally a rookie who was drafted late in the second day or not at all. Or perhaps it is a guy who has bounced around a few training camps looking for a chance. Whoever…

  9. Classic Camp Battle: 1982 Moseley vs. Miller

    Comments Off

    When the Washington Redskins reported to training camp is Carlisle, Pennsylvania on July 23, 1982, there was considerable uncertainty in the air. A player’s strike loomed on the horizon. Nobody quite knew what to make of the Redskins including the players and coaches themselves. Was their 8-3 finish in 1981 an indicator of better things…

    In the final weeks before grind of training camp, you generally find NFL players in Bermuda, by a lake, sleeping in at home, hanging out in Las Vegas or engaging in just about any activity that does not involve a football. But not DeAngelo Hall. The Washington Redskins cornerback was in Minnesota last week attending…

    They’re as much a part of summer as sunburn, triple-digit heat index readings, and mosquito bites. Every August, young players hopeful of making an instant impact in the NFL pop up at Redskins training camp. These phenoms create a buzz among reporters and the fans.

    A new player added to the mix on an NFL team means that the job of at least one other player is threatened. NFL rosters are a zero sum game. For each opportunity given to a draft pick or free agent signing, one is lost by another, usually older, player. After the April draft I…

    The Redskins’ selection of Jeremy Jarmon came as a surprise to many; to almost everyone, in fact, except for readers of this blog (sorry, on the rare occasions that I get one right I have to toot my horn).

    It’s draft day! Well, sort of. The NFL’s supplemental draft is being held today and the league’s teams will be mailing it in. Actually, they’ll be emailing it in.
