Which new Redskin is most likely to make the final 53?

Which new Redskin is most likely to make the final 53?

Jeff Posey, LB
Mike Rumph, DB
Spencer Folau, OL
Antuan Edwards, S
Julian Battle, CB



Jeff Posey, LB

Posey, 6-4 and 241 pounds, is an eight-year veteran who began his career with 49ers, then moved on to Buffalo. He played mostly strong-side linebacker for the Bills. In his career, he has appeared in 123 games with 76 starts. He has recorded 357 tackles, 20.5 sacks, two interceptions and eight forced fumbles.


Mike Rumph, DB

The last two seasons, the 6-2, 209-pounder has been slowed by foot and forearm injuries. He is confident that the injuries are behind him. He was in the 49ers' training camp last Monday when he learned he had been traded to the Redskins.
"I'm in good shape," Rumph said. "I only missed one day of practice since I came over from the Niners. Everything is coming together real well. I want to get the terminology down, and get in there and make some plays.


Spencer Folau, OL

Overall, Folau has appeared in 91 career games with 43 starts.
"We needed a veteran to come in here," Bugel said. "We had him in a meeting [on Tuesday] and he almost filled out a whole notebook. So he obviously takes good notes, writes real fast and is very smart."
Bugel said Folau will initially see time at right tackle, behind starter Jon Jansen.


Antuan Edwards, S

Edwards has appeared in 72 games, with 32 starts during his NFL career. The 6-1, 210-pounder spent the first five years of his career with the Green Bay Packers. The last two years, he has played for St. Louis and Atlanta. In St. Louis in 2004, he played along-side current Redskins safety Adam Archuleta.
"I bring experience to the table," he said. "I know we have a lot of young guys in the secondary. Hopefully we can get that unit together and we can go out and make plays."


Julian Battle, CB

According to Gregg Williams, Battle was at Redskins Park "at the crack of dawn" on Wednesday morning working out for new secondary-cornerbacks coach Jerry Gray. (Mike Rumph attended the session as well.)
Battle is a 6-2, 205-pound cornerback who has played three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. A former third-round draft choice by the Chiefs, Battle has mostly served in a backup or nickel cornerback role.
In his career, Battle has appeared in 26 games with one start, totaling 14 tackles and three passes defended. Last year, he ruptured his Achilles tendon and spent the year on injured reserve.


A.J. Harris, RB

The 6-1, 230-pounder first caught the eye of coaches in the team's Rookie Camp last April. He went undrafted and unsigned until this week.
"We really liked him and we were looking for a chance to bring him back," Joe Gibbs said.
Although the Redskins have solid depth at the running back position, Harris has a chance to impress coaches and possibly earn a spot on the practice squad.

Well, I think more than one will probably make it, but I picked Spencer Folau, because he is the only experienced backup on the O-line.

It's a tie between Posey and Rumph.

Posey will make it.

Folau and Rumph probably will.

Edwards, Battle, and Harris need to perform well the next couple weeks.

Rumph definately, then maybe Posey and Folau just because we need depth at their respective positions.

Mike Rumph - With Springs out 4-6 weeks Rumph will have to start at least one and maybe two regular season games. I have faith that Greg Williams can coach him up.

Hopefully he won't take a page out of Riggo's past. Last thing we need is the Rumph Rangers.

Posey Rumph Folau all make it. If Springs is out week one then one of the other two will make it also.
I miss you 21.

God I wish we had a second round pick.
