Redskins Insider: July 22, 2007 - July 28, 2007

No Landry Deal Tonight

Coach Joe might be a gettimg a little miffed because despite his hopes of a Landry deal being done any minute now this afternoon, I hear this thing will drag into Sunday morning, if not longer, and will not go down Saturday night. My gut tells me a deal gets...

Injury Update

Tyler Ecker has a groin injury and we'll know more on the extent of that later. HB Blades had cramps this morning and we'll see if he can go in the afternoon session, beginning at 4:30. Last I heard was that there was not much chance of a Landry deal...

Tough Start For the Draft Picks

Morning practice is over. LaRon Landry, the top pick, is still unsigned for now and not here. Two other draft picks, tight end Tyler Ecker and linebacker HB Blades, were carted off the field (updates on their injuries are not available yet), and another QB Jordan Palmer, looks rough thus...

A Report from the Field

Jason takes a moment to phone in this report: Eighty-six guys guys are in camp, with LaRon Landry being the only one not on the field. Pierson Prioleau is alongside Sean Taylor for now, occupying the spot that will go to Landry. Because we're all about fashion, we'll tell you...

Random Stuff

A few players were available to the media before the start of practice at 5. Marcus Washington got his braces off and was happy about that. No more ortho appointments. Gotta think the prospect of shredding your lips on your braces every Sunday wasn't a whole lot of fun either....

Another Landry Indication

So the Skins PR staff just came around with the first official roster for training camp. Of course, I immediately scanned down to the L and see that, indeed, LaRon Landry's name is on it. So I asked if that was a mistake, because for him to be listed there...

Simeon Rice

When you cover the Redskins you expect to get a flood of emails whenever a big-name player is cut. And if he happens to be a D Lineman, or, in particular, a pass-rushing D end, well, forget about it. So with Simeon Rice suddenly on the street, I was prepared...

Bradford Signs

Jason just called from his car with this: The Redskins have signed Corey Bradford, a 6-1, 200-pound wide receiver. He's a depth guy, not guaranteed to make the team, but with Santana Moss coming off injuries, it's probably prudent to pick up a guy with that kind of size. Bradford...

Let The Slotting Begin

Could be a long night for the Skins and LaRon Landry. In fact, probably will be. The chips have started to fall at the top of the NFL draft and the heavy lifting will begin with Landry, Washington's top pick, now. Teams and agents can spend the afternoon studying the...

Adios Howard

Just wanted to give a huge shout out to Howard Bryant, my partner in crime on this beat the last two seasons and a true friend. Howard is leaving for a tremendous gig at ESPN, one that he could not have turned down. This beat can be trying and demanding...

Cap Stuff/Cooley Stuff/JC Stuff/Random Stuff

According to people with access to this info, the Skins are currently $7 million under the cap, which is ample room to add a depth player should injuries arise, and also to account for any jump in Cooley's cap number should that get done soon (more on that in a...

Medical Check-up

Sorry for the late post - I have endured massive laptop problems and the thing just finally booted up 5 minutes ago - but had a chance to chat with director of sports medicine, Bubba Tyer, for a few minutes this afternoon. He says everyone is ready to go for...

Kevin Mitchell Update

The Virginia medical examiner's office has concluded its investigation into the death of former Skins LB Kevin Mitchell, verifying their preliminary findings that he passed away from a heart attack. Mitchell died from heart disease and natural causes, the office said today. Mitchell, 36, died in his sleep April 30,...

Keenan McCardell/LaRon Landry Update

Heard the veteran WR has agreed to terms with Houston, as expected. The Skins had some serious interest in him, but only at the right price - the vet. min. He lives in Houston and if he was going to sign anywhere for that kind of money it was going...

Back In Business

Hello everyone, hope your summer is going well. I am back big time now, and we'll get this puppy cranked up like the good old days. Will be blogging daily and, I am sure, several times a day once camp gets going on Friday. I'll be out at The Park...
