Medication took care of the pain during the offseason down time but once workouts started in March the bulging disc flared up again. He has yet to…

  3. Jansen, Moss salary cap implications

    When I wrote about Jon Jansen’s release a week ago, I was imprecise in communicating a number that is important when evaluating the move and I’d like to take this opportunity to clarify. I said that by releasing Jansen “the Redskins took a cap hit of some $6 million.” That’s true. The Redskins will take…

  7. Redskins are the NFL’s most mediocre team

    Comments Off

    The 2009 Washington Redskins will be about a .500 team. I say this with confidence and not because I possess a crystal ball that allows me to peer into the future and see events to come with clarity. It’s because I can see the past and recognize that a .500 team is what the Redskins…

    Last week, in its “Whispers—NFC” section, Pro Football Weekly “reported” the following: Would the Washington Redskins take a chance on Michael Vick? Don’t rule it out. Owner Daniel Snyder loves the big splash and might be willing to gamble on Vick, who grew up in nearby Newport News, Va. There’s no question that the Redskins…

    Comments Off

    As the Washington Redskins’ sixth-round draft choice, linebacker Robert Henson knows that he will have to wait his turn to play with the defense and contribute on special teams in the meantime. He has been down that path before. For three seasons at TCU he got three starts on defense and played on virtually every…

    The hay is in the barn for the Washington Redskins. Free agency essentially is over and the draft is done. They went into the process with holes a defensive tackle, defensive end, guard, linebacker, and right offensive tackle. The hole at offensive tackle remains. They could have chosen Michael Oher of Mississippi with their first…

    It’s one thing to climb the mountain and win the championship once. Many teams have done that. The hard part is getting knocked down and then winning it all again. In 1986, Joe Gibbs and the Redskins showed that they could get back to the top. No, they didn’t win the Super Bowl; they had…

    A few observations from today’s Redskins minicamp: As most of you know, I’m not much of a Colt Brennan guy but I have to say that I was impressed during seven-on-seven and 11-on-11 drills. He fired a few intermediate passes over the middle with great accuracy and authority and showed good touch on deep passes.…
