Redskins Preparing for Free Agency


Entering free agency with an abundance of cap space gives the Redskins lots of options to fill plenty of needs, even after re-signing cornerback DeAngelo Hall, defensive tackle Chris Baker, safety Jose Gumbs and franchising linebacker Brian Orakpo.

The Redskins dropped off dramatically after a division title in 2012. Following a 10-6 season they returned back to the NFC East basement in 2013 with a 3-13 record and no first-round pick to show for it.

That, coupled with their $36 million cap penalty for 2012 and 2013, makes this free agency period more important than normal.

Washington was tied with the Chicago Bears in 2013 for allowing the second most points points per game (29.9), which means the defense, specifically the secondary, will be a high priority in this free agent class.

So who might the Redskins target to improve their roster? Let’s take a look at who the team reportedly has their sights set on based on reports from local Redskins beat writers. Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins Legends Gather on Maryland’s Eastern Shore


Last night, I had the chance to head across the Chesapeake Bay to take in the 9th Annual Mickey Steele Poker Tournament, which honors a fallen friend of former Redskins quarterback Mary Rypien and raises money for charity.

Throughout the night, Redskins legends streamed in and out of the Fisherman’s Inn in Grasonville, Md. Players ranging from Rypien to Gary Clark to Reggie Branch to Jeff Bostic were in attendance.

Attending the event for my employer, What’s Up? Magazine, I was able to catch up with Rypien and Bostic as well as Ricky Sanders and general manager Bruce Allen.

We covered a variety of topics, including the tournament and how the the current Redskins squad will fare in 2013 and the debate surrounding the team name. Bostic did not hold back about his feelings on the team name.

Here is a snippet and a link to the story. Read the rest of this entry »
