Redskins Insider: June 17, 2007 - June 23, 2007

Pre-Vacation Odds and Ends

From everything I hear the biggest delay in getting the Skins second-day draft picks signed is the length of the deal. There are some new quirks in this CBA that pertains to these kind of deals, and teams can now decide whether to sign these kids to a three-year deal...

Former Redskin linebacker LaVar Arrington will remain at Prince George's Hospital Center at least through the remainder of this week as a precaution following his motorcycle accident Monday, according to his lawyer, Rosalyn Pugh. Arrington already has one surgical procedure to repair his fractured forearm, Pugh said, and has some...

LaVar vs. The Boz???

Got an email from a couple of duded who have a blog called The Realests about LaVar. They compared him to The Boz and, actually, it's a pretty interesting comparison. Neither remotely lived up to the hype, neither won anything, neither were a part of many winning teams. There was...

Keenan McCardell

Made some calls this morning and the Skins are in fact negotiating with McCardell, 37, to bring him into camp. He has good size and has been a quality possession guy for a long time. Not great speed and nearing the end, but the Skins could definitely use someone as...

Bubble Guys

Going off the top of my head here, and I am sure you guys will make me look like an idiot in a matter of minutes (no big accomplishment, there), but which guys on the roster last year face the toughest task sticking around? Of course, it is horribly early...

Poston, who visited Arrington in the hospital last...

LaVar Update (Kinda)

Don't know much today that we didn't know yesterday. Arrington's family wants his lawyer, Rosalyn Pugh, to handle all information, and she hasn't called anyone back today, although her office continues to maintain she will be issuing a statement on his status. From everything I've heard he's fine, same...

Who Is The "Realist" Redskin Of Them All?

Kind of hard to quantify this kind of thing, I know, but thought I would take a shot. Marcus Washington, Mike Sellers, James Thrash and a whole bunch of guys come to mind, but I might have to go with Rock here. How about you? He changed positions and his...

London's Calling

Having had a chance to spend a little time around London Fletcher now, I get the sense this dude is all football. Well, I shouldn't say that: football and family. I think he's going to be a great fit all around with the team. He'll be a leader and a...

Reed Doughty Update/Final Mini Camp Notes

Safety Reed Doughty's thoughts were often with his 10-month-old son, Micah, this weekend. Micah, who was born six weeks premature and needs to add four pounds before he can receive a kidney transplant, will likely need another surgery soon following a urinary problem. Micah also had to be hospitalized...

World Bowl, Baby! World Bowl

Our guy Casey Bramlet didn't have his greatest Saturday as QB of the Hamburg Sea Devils, but he still managed to lead them a 17-13 win over Berlin, putting Hamburg in the World Bowl next weekend against Frankfurt. I am trying to talk Cindy into getting the powers that be...

Justin Skaggs

Should have posted about this sooner, but as many of you already know, former Redskin WR Justin Skaggs passed away this weekend from brain cancer. It's a horrible story, as the receiver, who was playing in the Arena League, was 28 and was just diagnosed with the disease Jun 1....
