The Redskins listed a staggering 17 players on their official injury report for Monday – a fact compounded exponentially by the fact that they play the Giants on Thursday this week. Here is a list of Monday’s official designations: Read the rest of this entry »

The Redskins preluded free agency by retaining key members of their 2013 roster — Brian Orakpo, DeAngelo Hall, Perry Riley, and Chris Baker.
With lots of room in cap space, the team is expected to be active. Keep it locked here for the latest updates on who the team expects to target and who they have signed.

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 »

The Washington Redskins kicked off their 2012 season last night, with a 7-6 victory over the Buffalo Bills in Buffalo. Pre-season games are usually littered with vanilla play-calling, and vanilla packages, but that doesn’t mean that players can’t help or hurt their chances of making a football team. Here are some guys that may have tipped the scale in one direction or another last night.
Robert Griffin III
Hard to believe that a guy riding the top of a see saw could actually raise his value even more, but the kid from Baylor just continues to prove that he truly has what it takes to not only play in this league, but perhaps one day be special. It isn’t that he did anything physically that blew the doors off or anything, but he most certainly did not look like some rookie tossed into the fire either. It’s hard to peg whether his poise, or his leadership was more impressive, but there is absolutely nothing about the number 10 to suggest that this is his first year in the league – other than public record of course.

Earlier in the week, we asked our fellow THNers to please send us in some of their photos if they went to training camp this week.
Here are some great photos that we received from Mozelle Meyers, @Sportsgal5_2000 on Twitter, and a die hard Washington Redskins fan:
