    Today, for the first time in almost a week, Dan Snyder dusted off the checkbook and signed a player. It was the Redskins’ second signing of the free agency period and, like the first one, backup quarterback Todd Collins, the player wore the burgundy and gold last season. In fact, Rock Cartwright has been a…

  2. Goodell gets it

    Comments Off

    A year ago, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell decided that his league was at risk of gaining a reputation as a collection of thugs. Sweeping changes in the code of conduct and stiffer penalties for violating those standards came into effect almost overnight. Tank Johnson of the Bears and Chris Henry of the Bengals felt the…

    The Washington Redskins’ newfound commitment to finding new talent through the draft may get a lot easier. According to a source very good at predicting which teams will get which compensatory picks in the upcoming NFL draft the Redskins may receive as many as three extra selections in the April 26-27 draft.

    Lance Briggs thought he had a new team—the Washington Redskins. Shortly after he agreed to terms with his current team, the Chicago Bears, Briggs revealed that he believed that he was D. C. bound. “I didn’t think I was going to be a Chicago Bear. I actually thought I was headed to Washington,” Briggs said.…

  8. Briggs staying put

    In the instant information age, instant analysis can instantly be rendered useless. As soon as I uploaded the Briggs post, word came in that he had re-upped with the Bears. I was right about one thing though—he didn’t get the guaranteed money he was looking for. The six-year, $36 million deal reportedly contains just (just?)…

  9. Redskins in pursuit of Briggs?

    Almost as soon as I uploaded my last post about the Redskins becoming smart in free agency, a report on ESPN stated that Chicago linebacker Lance Briggs will be going to Redskins Park for a free agency visit. According to multiple reports prior to the onset of free agency, Briggs and agent Drew Rosenhaus are…

  10. What did Vinny say?

    What did Vinny say? “We’re being smart,” Cerrato said. “We’re not just going out there and throwing money around.” Say what? The irony here is that the Redskins have been the kings shoveling out the long green. In three of the past five years (2003, 2004, 2006) they hit the market early and often. Some…

  14. All’s quiet in Ashburn

    We’re about 18 hours into the NFL free agent signing period and the sounds of silence are emanating from Redskins Park. Well, near silence anyway. The Redskins did ink quarterback Todd Collins to a three year deal that will be worth at least $9 million ($3 million guaranteed), perhaps more with incentives. He signed the…

  16. Lloyd: Skins will pay later

    The Redskins will cut now, pay later. 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…

  20. Later, Lloyd

    Feb 27, 2008, 1:42 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Washington Redskins handed Brandon Lloyd his walking papers today two years after giving up third- and fourth-round draft picks for the right to sign him to a contract that had $10 million in guaranteed money. The trade and signing turned out to be a very costly mistake. Lloyd caught 25 passes for the Redskins.…
