The Redskins opened up the first day with barely a peep. The team retained punter Sav Rocca and defensive lineman Kedric Golston. It was also revealed through Twitter that the One Man Gang, Lorenzo Alexander, would be signing with a new team to be determined.
As the more expensive free agents are taken off the market, the Redskins should get more active with scouting affordable B and C level talent.
7:17 A.M. Day 2 Starts off with somewhat surprising news, considering age.
Not sure how serious the interest is in Winfield, but there has been contact. He played very well vs. them last season.
