Nixon might be interesting. I thought we would look at a right OT in the Draft but there were other BPA at several picks.
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!

The kid RJ Mattes played LT, LG and RT at NC State. I think that he was probably slotted to play LT, the position he played for 2 years at State and also at the NFL Bowl game in LA. At the RT position I really think it's Polubus' job to lose. Maybe Pashos can come back or the kid from TB can resurrect his career.

Not only has Dominick Reyes not been invited in yet, but he's not signed anywhere. 2 other guys from Stony Brook agreed to deals, the scouts must have missed his film. I am sure he's worth a look unless he's on the no-fly list or something.

Nixon is really intriguing. The only real knock on him I've heard is that he's lazy and doesn't play with passion...

That certainly sounds like something that can be fixed and is worth gambling on. Being given a chance to play football for a living, surrounded by passionate players who put football first, a division champion team... This could be a great environment for him.

Per the Washington Post:

The Redskins have added two offensive linemen, Utah center Tevita Stevens and Florida tackle Xavier Nixon; an inside linebacker in UAB’s Marvin Burdett; and two wide receivers in New Haven’s Jason Thompson and U-Conn.’s Nick Williams. The team also has extended a rookie minicamp invitation to McNeese State cornerback Seth Thomas.

Those moves are all according to the players’ agents. The team has yet to announce its signings, and more are likely to follow.


Here’s some information on each of them.

Stevens – a 6-foot-1, 307-pound senior who started four seasons for Utah. He started out as a right guard and didn’t allow a sack in 13 games in 2009. He then moved to center, where he spent the next three seasons.

Nixon – a 6-foot-6, 321-pound senior, saw time at both left and right tackle for the Gators, starting 33 of 46 games. He is considered to have top-level athleticism, but low-round consistency, according to one scouting report.

Thompson – A 6-3, 190-pound wide receiver, Thompson clocked a 40-yard dash time of 4.47-seconds in a pre-draft workout. He recorded 44 catches for 881 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2012.

Burdett – A 5-9, 232-pound inside linebacker, Burdett led the nation in tackles per game (13.08). He set a UAB single-season record with 147 tackles, and set a school record with 406 career tackles.

Williams – The 5-10, 184-pound Williams recorded 30 catches for 334 yards but no touchdowns as a senior. A standout return man, he averaged a U-Conn.-record 28.3 yards per kick return and also averaged 12.0 yards per punt return as a senior. Two punt returns went for touchdowns.

Thomas – A 5-foot-8, 194-pound cornerback, he recorded 42 tackles and three interceptions as a senior.

I'm hearing another lineman may be brought in. Still working out the details but it could happen.

We only have 10-11 roster spots open. We can't have signed even 1/2 of these guys.

Some of them are invited to camp for a tryout. Others are signed, but it isn't immediately clear which is which.

I would think Jackson didn't count because he is suspended indefinitely and can't even practice.

Some guys come in on a tryout basis. They do not count unless they sign contracts. My guess is that Xavier Nixon was signed, but until the team announces it, it's not certain who actually signed and who is just trying out.
