  • So Long, Big Jon


    As someone that has been known as JansenFan for the past 5 years, someone that owned a 76 jersey before you could buy them at the Redskins Store, it was sad news when Jon Jansen was released by the Washington Redskins. He has been my favorite player over the past 10 seasons.

    I understand why the Redskins made the decision they made, and I understand Rock’s decision to keep playing, particularly when his hometown Lions offered him a contract to play close to his family and off-season home.

    So to the question I’ve received both publicly and privately, no, I will not change my screen name. I am still a Jon Jansen fan. Since he made the decision to stay out of the NFC – East, I won’t even stop pulling for him to do well unless he’s up against Brian Orakpo or another Washington player.

    Watching Jansen and Michael Strahan battle it out twice a year was the highlight for me of some pretty dismal years as a Redskins fan, so for that, I am grateful. Thanks for being a classy leader, a solid contributor, and a Rock for this franchise.

    Good Luck with Detroit… except on September 27th.

    Redskins Play Musical Linebackers on Practice Squad


    The Redskins signed former Detroit Lion and Kansas City Chief linebacker Johnny Baldwin to the practice squad.

    Baldwin, who played college at Alabama A&M, replaces linebacker Curtis Gatewood, who was released from the practice squad yesterday.

    Baldwin entered the league in 2007 as a fifth-round selection of the Detroit Lions.

    Gatewood was originally signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt following this year’s draft.

    For all updated roster moves, please visit our Redskins Transactions and Roster pages.
