Ade Jimoh In The House

He just pulled up ... Again, not saying that everyone who shows up here is being released (although most have been so far), but he did just walk int he building at the same time Dan Snyder happened to be here, and actually held the door for Dan. Considering he...

Renaldo Moves On

Just left the building. Sad thing to see, but he says his agent has received a few sniffs already. "As one door closes another door opens," Renaldo said. Wynn is intent on playing - I feel like I've got some more great years left in me," he said - and...

Cuts (Updated)

DISCLAIMER: I am not saying any of these players have been officially cut, just reporting what I see. Take this as an observation and draw your own conclusions. The Skins have called a lot of guys back to let them know they have been released. Renaldo Wynn pulled up and...

Cooley Re-Signed (The Numbers are in now)

Cris Cooley signed a 6-year contract extension, he said, and just talked to us about it. It happened very quickly, Chris said, and he is very excited. A big weight off his shoulders. I'll get all the details quickly, and from what I have heard right away, he gets about...

Have A Feeling Marcus Mason Made It

From what I gather they are keeping 4 RBs and Mason, a local feel-good story, looks to have cracked the 53 man. I could still seem them looking at a vet. RB or two depending what's on the waiver wire, but I think he's in. Hear that things look good...

Brunell Has Left The Building ... And Expects To Be Back

No movement on the trade front - not there they have ever been close to having a deal for him in place - and again, we're talking a limited market for Mark at this point. Mark came in for meetings with all the QBs, and left with Collins and Palmer....

Odds and Ends

If the Skins were going to cut Brunell protocol would dictate him getting tipped off today (a courtesy any 15 year vet would get) and was around Redskins Park for a long time today and , according to people close to the situation, he was not informed of any release...

Brunell and Blaylock

Hey there. Wish I had more time to post but I am trying to stay on top of a lot of stuff. Anything you want to know about Brunell was covered in the webchat I just did on washingtonpost.com, so the transcript there will have all the info. Also,. Blaylock...

No Go For Portis

Well, Clinton gets his wish - doesn't he always around here? - and won't be going. So he enters Week 1 off of 4 practices and that's it. After saying how Portis could have played the last three preseason games if need be, and playing everything down, the guy ends...

Portis Update

He's in full uniform taking part in the pre-game stretches with teammates ... but doing so with no socks on and in sneakers/tennis shoes/cross-trainers/whatever you call them where you live (in East Baltimore where I came up, everything was "tennis shoes"). Anywho, everyone else is in cleats, etc. But he...

Marcus and Samuels Are Out - That's It

Everyone else is eligible to play in this thing. That's all I got for now....

Randall Godfrey is starting in place of Marcus Washington, still waiting on who will miss the game if anyone other than Samuels....

Portis Warming Up Now

He got out on the field a few minutes ago, running around a little. Standing around talking to Moss, Jason Campbell and Carlos Rogers right now. We shall see. I have a hunch he'll carry it once or twice....

No Sign Of Portis Yet

A lot of guys taking early warm-ups, working with trainers, getting loose, including Chris Samuels. No sign of Dolla Bill, though. That in no way precludes him from playing - this is not the real in-uniform warm-up and just some informal stuff - and he could very well be getting...

Blaylock Update

Would have liked to have posted this earlier, but was traveling all day and my paper won't give me a Blackbery (can't even seem to get my hands on the one Howard Bryant turned in when he left the paper; shows where I rate) so I finally have email access...

Preseason Pregame 4

We're in desperate need of a fresh thread -- we've milked that welcome-home luncheon for all it's worth -- and it's time to get the old gameface on. LaCa is winging his way to Jax on Jasno One so let's discuss our expectations for tonight, shall we? Gotta think JC's...

Welcome Home Luncheon

Just got home from the Ritz in Tyson's. Pretty much the same old stuff here as every year.. Former WR Roy Jefferson stole the show with a strong rendition of the anthem, sounding like Harry Belafonte (Gibbs called it "awesome"). Coach Joe did the usual routine, thanking the fans, talking...

A Little Review

Okay, JC is starting Thurs. but probably not playing that much and Portis could end up getting a few carries too. We'll see how that goes in both cases. If Portis truly could have played in the last few preseason games, as Gibbs said he could, then they might as...

Everyone In Uniform

For what it's worth, during the portion of practice we are allowed to see, everyone was taking part, including Jason Campbell, Marcus Washington, Chris Samuels, Clinton Portis. Now, Washington and Samuels won't play, and Portis seems very, very doubtful, and we won't know how much work these actually did in...

Joe Salave'a Cut

Heard that DT Joe Salave'a was cut. They are looking to add youth there. he had a decent camp and seemed to be over his injury problems, but didn't get much work with the first team. They like Montgomery and Golston and have a healthy Griffin, But Big Joe was...

Keydrick Vincent

The Skins have already made one significant move to better their O Line, and if I am them I'm checking out this dude, too. The Ravens have gone with a youth movement on their line, but this guy can play some and would give them great depth at guard. Pucillo...

JC Says He Will Play

Jason Campbell says he's good to go Thursday night, has been cleared and though he still feels some "soreness" in his left knee, it's not enough to keep him out. Coach Joe Gibbs says he will see how Campbell gets through practice Tuesday and then make a decision. JC says...
