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 »

Phillip Buchanon to be placed on I.R.


According to Phillip Buchanon’s Facebook page, the 10th year cornerback will be placed on Injured Reserve today.

Buchanon was suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy and has been hampered by neck and knee injuries recently. He made his only appearance this season in the Redskins loss to the Carolina Panthers two weeks ago.

It should be noted that the news was not mentioned on Buchanon’s Twitter account: @PhillipBuchanon.

Father of a Former Redskin… Or Hulk Hogan???


In the idea of lifting up the spirits of Redskins Nation after a frustrating loss, I figured a little humor was needed.

We all know how 2009 turned out but I figure I’ll give you all a bit of a flashback… in a good way. This time in the form of former Redskins punter Glenn Pakulak.

Pakulak, as you all remember, filled in for starter Hunter Smith when he was injured in mid-October and appeared in two games (Oct. 11 vs. Carolina and October 18th vs. Kansas City).

What does Pakulak have to do with the Skins now? Nothing really. But it’s never a bad time to blog about a former punter just days after your current punter hurts his hip in pregame warmups.

Samuels, Geisinger Placed On I.R., James Released, and Much More


The Redskins made a flurry of roster moves on Tuesday, the biggest one being the placement of five-time Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels to injured reserve with a torn triceps muscle.

The Redskins also placed reserve offensive lineman Justin Geisinger on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered againt the Baltimore Ravens on Sundy night.

To fill their spots, the Redskins elevated offensive lineman Devin Clark from the practice squad to the active roster and signed former New York Jets and Carolina Panthers offensive lineman Will Montgomery.

The Redskins signed former Carolina Panthers guard Rueben Riley to the practice squad to fill Clark’s spot.

The Redskins also announced the release of defensive end Erasmus James, the former Minnesota Vikings first round pick who was acquired in a trade this summer. James saw very limited action during the 2008 season. No move has been made to fill his void at this time.

In addition, the Chicago Bears signed wide receiver Devin Aromashodu off of the Redskins practice squad onto their active roster.

To replace Aromashodu, the Redskins signed wide receiver Marques Hagans to the practice squad.

Hagans is in his second season. He entered the league with the St. Louis Rams as a fifth round pick out of the University of Virginia in 2006.

Aromashodu is the fifth member of the Redskins practice squad to be signed to another team’s active roster this season.

Early Play-Off Look For Redskins


Its definitely too early to really make play-off predictions, but Steve Wyche did so any way. There’s no real surprise information here. Obviously, he has the Giants, Panthers and Cardinals as locks, since all three of these teams are the class of their division, at least as it presently looks in the standings. He also lists Tampa Bay as being “In good standing.” Again, no surprise. They are 7-3 and playing pretty good football. Read the rest of this entry »
