There are are a lot of new faces at Redskins Park these days, especially today as the Redskins kick off the offseason schedule with the Rookie Mini-Camp. Combine that, with the fact that it’s Friday, and that means Follow Friday on Twitter, I thought it would be prudent to put together a (hopefully) comprehensive list of the twitter handles of all the new blood.

Leigh Torrence was signed by the Redskins yesterday, four years after the cornerback left the Redskins to go and ultimately win a Lombardi with the New Orleans Saints. While the move didn’t exactly set Redskins Nation on its ear, it is the third signing in two days that was made to shore up some depth, and that made good football sense.
Torrence won’t likely challenge DeAngelo Hall or Josh Wilson for playing time, but he is a capable back-up, can play nickel, and is an excellent special teams player. He is also a respected veteran in the locker room – something that this now youthful roster can use a little bit of. There are currently more than 35 players under contract with the Redskins, that have less than four years of NFL experience. Read the rest of this entry »
The Redskins made a couple of depth moves today, signing offensive tackle James Lee, and re-signing defensive lineman Kedric Golston.
Golston has been with the Redskins his entire six-year NFL career, and Washington knows exactly what they’re getting – a solid contributor that is versatile enough to back-up anywhere along the defensive front. He had 1.5 sacks in nine games last season before being put on injured reserve. Read the rest of this entry »
People tell me not to ‘make anything out of’ Robert Griffin III not doing any private follow-up workouts for teams.
I don’t care who Griffin turns down for private workouts, there are only two teams in the running – the Washington Redskins and the Indianapolis Colts. The Redskins have stated that they didn’t need a private workout anyway, and had already seen everything they needed to see. Smart. Read the rest of this entry »
In honor of the three-headed monster that were kind enough to put together the whole concept of hitting the Washington Redskins with a $36 Million cap panalty and the Dallas Cowboys with a $10 Million penalty – I wanted to pay visual homage to this fair and impartial trio.
Of course on the left we have Roger Goodell – the Commish – the brainchild so to speak. I admit that due to many recent events, it may seem difficult to put ‘brain’ and ‘Roger Goodell’ in the same sentence, but he is the figurehead of this whole mess. Read the rest of this entry »
Like any good Redskins fan – I hate everything about the Dallas Cowboys – their stupid team, their stupid owner, their stupid colors, their stupid quarterback, their stupid fans – but I have managed to find one decent thing about the Cowboys other than their misery, and that’s Cowboy Jeff.
Every now and again, my twiend Cowboy Jeff puts together a parody song that is either applicable to the Redskins, or just so sardonic, that any Redskin fan will appreciate the Cowboy content. Read the rest of this entry »
With the incredibly awesome news that the Washington Redskins have been penalized $36 Million in cap space for circumventing a cap that didn’t exist, I felt compelled, nay, obligated to try and come up with something to cheer up Redskins Nation.
Today during the course of my typical loving Twitter personna, I bad-mouthed resident NFL Network idiot Jason LaCanfora. You remember him? he used to act like a reporter sometimes for the Washington Post. Read the rest of this entry »
