  1. Morocco Brown

    May 19, 2008, 9:13 PM EDT

    According to the Washington Post, the Washington Redskins have hired Morocco Brown to be their director of pro personnel. I haven’t posted much of anything about the moves in the Redskins’ front office lately. It’s important stuff, but I just wasn’t sure about what the departure of Louis Riddick from the job that Brown will…

  2. Roster spot #80 filled

    The Washington Redskins got up to the limit of 80 players under contract when they signed defensive back Steve Tate, an undrafted rookie out of Hofstra. Tate played in 42 games in his four years at the university on Long Island, but he started only 12. According to the Hofstra Chronicle, that’s because his versatility:…

  3. Corner backup plan

    I’ve been having an online discussion with some friends of mine about the Washington Redskins cornerback position and I thought it was worth bringing up here. The Redskins have nine corners on their roster: 25 Eubanks, John 38 Holt, Cedrick 32 Jackson, Eddie 22 Rogers, Carlos 27 Smoot, Fred 24 Springs, Shawn 29 Torrence, Leigh…

    From the Washington Redskins Inside Slant in USA Today.com: QUOTE TO NOTE: “Our (special) teams are pretty good. We don’t want to be average at anything. We punted nine times in (the wild-card playoff loss at) Seattle and we didn’t have a 4.5 hang time on any of ‘em. If you line-drive the ball, these…

  7. Roster still has one spot

    The Washington Redskins still have one job opening. I mistakenly said that the Redskins released Jerome Mathis yesterday to make room for rookie defensive end Jonathan Mapu. While Mathis was cut and Mapu was signed, the first event didn’t have to happen to make the second one possible. That’s because the Redskins still have just…

    The Washington Redskins cut Jerome Mathis today, making the roster outlook for the team’s wide receivers much more clear. Here are the 10 WR’s currently on the roster: 12 Kelly, Malcolm 80 Mann, Maurice 16 McMullen, Billy 19 Mix, Anthony 89 Moss, Santana 82 Randle El, Antwaan 11 Thomas, Devin 83 Thrash, James 18 Toler,…

    The one player the Washington Redskins signed as a free agent this past offseason is no longer with the team. The Skins cut wide receiver and kick returner Jerome Mathis today. I don’t think that the reasoning for this goes beyond the fact that they signed Mathis prior to drafting a pair of wide receivers…

  13. Some roster changes still possible

    The Washington Redskins’ roster is about 96% complete. Of the 53 players who will be on the team’s opening-day roster, all but one or two of them currently are with the team. Don’t look for post-June 1 cuts to add that depth at cornerback or along the lines. This just in—nearly all of the June…

  15. Davis—give it a rest!

    After running a few errands on Thursday afternoon, I came home and, as I usually do when I’m puttering around the house, I turned on the John Riggins show. Among the topics of discussion—still—was Fred Davis. It’s been a while since the incident involving Davis took place, so allow me to refresh your memory. Last…

    There was very little news coming out of the Washington Redskins minicamp this past weekend and that is exactly what the team wanted. You don’t want your team to make news during minicamp. Any headline that comes out of the spring get-together is almost invariably bad news. It’s about someone who’s not there because of…

  19. Results more important than process

    The main complaint about the Washington Redskins draft that is making the rounds is that they didn’t “address” the defensive line. It’s a complaint heard almost every year as the Redskins do generally ignore the D-line during the annual selection meeting. Of course, Rob Jackson of Kansas State, the defensive end that the Redskins took…
