Redskins ‘Final’ Roster

The Washington Redskins, and all other NFL teams, had until 9 pm last night to name their 53-man roster. As of 11pm, the Redskins had still only named 52 players. Obviously they have a certain player or position in mind, so they left a spot open, rather than have to juggle again later when that aforementioned player is acquired.

So I guess it isn’t a ‘final’ roster, but here’s who made it:

QB (3): Robert Griffin III*, Rex Grossman, Kirk Cousins
RB (4): Roy Helu Jr., Evan Royster, Alfred Morris, Darrel Young
WR (7): Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, Josh Morgan, Leonard Hankerson, Aldrick Robinson, Dezmon Briscoe, Brandon Banks
TE (3): Fred Davis, Niles Paul, Logan Paulsen
OL (9): Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus, Maurice Hurt, Jordan Black, Josh LeRibeus*, Adam Gettis*
DL (6): Adam Carriker, Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen, Jarvis Jenkins, Chris Baker, Kedric Golston
ILB (4): London Fletcher, Perry Riley, Lorenzo Alexander, Keenan Robinson*
OLB (4): Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan, Rob Jackson, Chris Wilson
CB (4): DeAngelo Hall, Josh Wilson, Cedric Griffin, Richard Crawford*
S (5): Brandon Meriweather, Madieu Williams, Reed Doughty, DeJon Gomes, Jordan Bernstine*
SPECIAL TEAMS (3): Billy Cundiff, Sav Rocca, Nick Sundberg

Here’s who didn’t make it:
QB: Jonathan Crompton
RB: Tim Hightower, Tristan Davis, Dorson Boyce
WR: Anthony Armstrong, Terrence Austin
TE: Richard Quinn
OL: Erik Cook, Willie Smith, Tom Compton*, Grant Garner
DL: Darrion Scott, Doug Worthington, Delvin Johnson, Marlon Favorite
LB: Bryan Kehl, Markus White, D.J. Holt, Brian McNally
CB: David Jones, Brandyn Thompson, Travon Bellamy

* 2012 draft pick

It was also announced yesterday that S Tanard Jackson had been suspended for substance abuse.

Some moderate surprises like Tim Hightower, Bryan Kehl, and Anthony Armstrong, given that there were some rumors swirling yesterday that he might get dealt to the Dolphins for RN Steve Slaton. Brandon Banks making the list is a surprise to some, only in that he never did establish himself as a receiver as Mike Shanahan indicated that he would have to.

Also some tough luck breaks for some youngsters like Markus White, Brandyn Thompson and Willie Smith – all 3 who are eligible, and will likely end up on the practice squad if they clear waivers.

OL Tom Compton was the only 2012 draft pick to not make the roster, but he will also likely be named to the practice squad if he clears.

So what do you think of the roster? Who would you have kept? Who would you have left off?

Who do you think will be on the practice squad?

I MEAN ONE MINUTE YOU LOOK LIKE YOU WANT TO WIN NOW AND THEN NEXT IT LIKE YOUR REBUILDING WTH. YOU TRADE A LOCAL NICE YOUNG CORNER LIKE WE ARE SO ESTABLISHED THERE, FOR THOSE THAT CAN’T FOLLOW THAT’S A WERE GOOD ENOUGH TO WIN NOW MOVE, THEN YOU KEEP AND PUT ON THE PUP LIST AN OLDER INJURED J BROWN??? AND CUT THE MOST TENURED AND LOVED AND CAN I ADD EXPERIENCED TE ONLY TO KEEP A POT HEAD PRE MADONNA WHO IS COCKY AS HELL IN DAVIS AND 2 NOBODY’S IN PAULSON AND JUST MADE A TE THIS YEAR PAUL REALLY. LOOK I UNDERSTAND THE CONTRACT WITH COOLEY BUT DINT INSULT ME AND TELL ME HE WANTS TO START SOMEWHERE NOW. LOOK FIRST I KNOW THEY TRIED TO TRADE HIM TO EVERY TEAM AND ALL SAID NO AND SECOND IF IT WAS CONTRACT CAN’T YOU RENEGOTIATE. PLEASE. OH AND NOW WE GOT A SAFETY SUSPENDED FOR THE YEAR AND 2 SECOND YEAR RUNNING BANKS AND A ROOKIE AND NOT TO MENTION 2 ARE HURT. YOUR SETTING UP RG3 TO FAIL AND WIND UP THE JOKE FRANCHISE THAT EVERYONE THINKS WE ARE. I SEE 2 WINS AND HOPEFULLY SHANAHANNS GET FIRED. LIFE LONG SKINS FAN HERE BUT AS SOON AS I THINK I CAN START TO FEEL GOOD THEY HIT ME RIGHT IN THE GUT AND DESTROY ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS. OH AND BY THE WAY I HAVE SEASON TICJETS SO I SUPPORT THIS CRAP. NOT FOR LONG. DISHEARTED AND BLACK

  2. For the most part I like the roster but, brian kehl should have made this team. He is the only linebacker to even be in position to make some interceptions during the preseason, none of the other LB were even close. Yes he dropped 2 but he made the third opportunity count. It shows he was at least hustling and should be given a chance on this team. He would be a better choice than rob Jackson or chris Wilson. Maybe even better than Alexander who is playing out of position. I like Alexander but I like young hungry guys who truly know the position. Hate the fact we let chris Cooley go for nothing in return. Davis is not a better TE, nor is he as consistent as Cooley has been. When is the last time Cooley failed a drug test, or 2 drug test?? So much for only wanting character guys on this team. Smh.

  3. i like the roster and like how we have depth now at most positions. team looks real good and we now have 2 quarterbacks!!! ( rex is not one of them!! ) kind of curious how having 2 good rookie quarterbacks will play out through the season. i was kind of surprised at hightower and cooley getting cut but that is what having depth means, tough decisions to make. looking forward to first game vs saints
