I heard some about LeRib on the radio yesterday that he's lost a bunch of weight getting ready for OTAs this year.

Josh LeRibeus tells me he just checked in at 317 pounds. That's good considering his weight struggles a year ago.

New attitude... new potential?

This is good stuff, and suggests that maybe he's ready to apply himself. There's a terrific opportunity for him this year... and he has the talent... It would be outstanding if he comes in with a chip, and a little focus.

Man, I hope so. Its a real opportunity for him to come in here with basically a clean slate and show Gruden what he can do. It always seemed with Shanahan like once you were in his doghouse, that was pretty much it.

The knock on LeRib with his weight though is that he's had this yo-yo history. Like you said, needs to apply himself to stay fit consistently.

He played pretty well at the end of 2012 right? Including that playoff game. I'm not sure any of the other drafted o-line guys can say that they've actually shown anything on the field.

According to ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim, RG Chris Chester is "not a lock" to keep his job.

The Redskins put Chester on notice when they drafted Spencer Long in the third round. They're going to give the rookie every opportunity to unseat Chester.

Washington can save $2.6 million against the cap by releasing Chester, who signed a five-year, $20 million deal ahead of the 2011 season.

He could also get a challenge from McGlyn.
