Follow Friday – ‘New Redskins’ Edition

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.

Thanks to Jake Russell for his help putting it together.

TOTALLY disagree with this

MAYBE the kid did not look like he would make it with this franchise

at least this kid got himself into an NFL camp - not everyone that came out this year can say that

there are going to be an awful lot of guys that are at these camps that have no future but ....

There's a player called Jerome Harrison:
- came into the NFL in 2002
- did not play in 2003
- started 8 games TOTAL from 2002 thru 2006
- bounced around some (even went to the Pats .... ) but somehow stayed with the Steelers

the rest is history

anyone could have taken this guy from the Steelers for basically nothing
always look on the bright side of life

Hail to the Redskins

James Harrison? I know it takes something special to even get an invite from an NFL team, just thought it was odd that Shaw was released so quickly

:oops: - you're right James Harrison - just goes to show that 'talent' evaluators and scouts can 'miss' on a lot of these guys

no worries about Shaw & our RBs - I prefer to think that maybe they knew he was not going to make it

I doubt that he's "absolutely terrible"
always look on the bright side of life

Hail to the Redskins
