This got me curious, so I looked up Holland. Hard to understand the move. He played in four games last season, then was dropped. Made two special teams tackles.

Must have been on the practice squad this year (and why can't we call it the "taxi squad" anymore?).

Who knows my man? Hopefully there's something hidden about these guys that can be brought out. Other than that, like you said, might just be some competition for the others.

This waiting around to see what other players we pick up is taking too long lol. Wish it were the end of April already.

One of those tackles being a helmet to helmet. Seems like he could end up being a hard hitter. We'll see I guess.

Should have named this thread New Signing or something. Here's the latest signings via Redskins twitter account (note that some of these guys were signed in September...not sure why they are just now tweeting it):

#Redskins sign 6 to reserve/futures contracts: NT Chigbo Anunoby, DL Dominique Hamilton, FB Eric Kettani, CB Korey Lindsey, DE Phillip Merling and TE Deangelo Peterson

Phillip Merling? I remember people had him going to us in a couple mock drafts a few years ago. He was a 2nd round pick if I remember correctly

if we didn't have such a good season with no big name players (obviously not including RG) I would've laughed at the Diamonds in the rough thing but definitely can't do that anymore bro!!
