  1. 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…

  2. The WR picture—Thrash on the bubble?

    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…

  5. 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…

  7. 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…

  11. 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…

    It’ll take a wide-angle lens to take the class picture for the Redskins’ 2008 draft. Ten new players were selected Saturday and Sunday. That ties for the most players drafted by the Redskins since they started the seven-round draft in 1994. They also took 10 players in 2002. As the ’02 draft indicates, a lot…

    After months of grading, ranking, interviews, workouts, medical examinations, and meeting, the Washington Redskins’ draft board is no longer on a dry erase board. It’s in permanent ink, or at least it will be after they evaluate the results of today’s workouts with Clemson DE Phillip Merling and Oklahoma WR Malcolm Kelly. The timing of…

    The Redskins’ trade proposal for Chad Johnson may have been dead on arrival in Cincinnati, but it did serve a purpose. It added another layer of mystery surrounding what Vinny Cerrato and Dan Snyder are going to do with the team’s first-round selection on Saturday. Cerrato has been letting everyone who will listen know for…

    Dos uno’s wasn’t enough to get Ocho Cinco to Washington. I would have posted this sooner, but I was out looking for thank-you cards for Mike Brown and Marvin Lewis. However, the local Hallmark store had nothing in their “thanks for saving an organization from self-destructing” line. Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato have been drawing…
