Eli Manning: I Can Cook Soup

Pardon the interruption ... washingtonpost.com sports editor Jon DeNunzio here, just making sure the Redskins Insider nation saw this interview that The Post's "Lean Plate Club" columnist, Sally Squires, did with Eli Manning yesterday. Manning was in D.C. promoting the Presidents' Fitness Challenge, and while this is not your standard...

Will New Philosophy Work Out?

JReid files again: From reading your responses to our recent posts, I get the feeling many of you are upset that the Redskins haven't done more in free agency. In addition to re-signing backup quarterback Todd Collins and return specialist Rock Cartwright, Washington pursued former Seattle wide receiver D.J. Hackett,...

Stump's Take

From JReid: Stump Mitchell, Redskins assistant head coach-running backs, just took a short break from helping Coach Jim Zorn with the new playbook and preparing for the draft. Mitchell poked his head into the press room and I'm the only guy here (maybe everyone is watching the NCAA tournament?), so...

Let the Madness Begin

No, not the Redskins madness. It's pretty quiet at the park. While Jasno continues his vacation and JReid trolls for an update on the fubball team, let's watch some hoops, shall we? Herewith my over-caffeinated, under-researched picks for today's games (since I messed around and missed out on entering the...

Jim Zorn, Take Heart

We all remember Jim Zorn's "maroon, black and yellow" gaffe at the introductory news conference. Apparently, he's not the only one who struggles to identify Redskins team colors ... (From video man Jonathan Forsythe, who spent a week at Nats spring training): PS -- If you're curious what the die-hard...

Free Agency Ends; Roll Call for Workouts

Jason Reid writes: With wide receiver D.J. Hackett having joined the Carolina Panthers, the Washington Redskins likely are finished pursuing free agents in this market, team officials said yesterday.

Offseason Workouts Begin (Update at End)

From Jason Reid: Many Washington Redskins players returned to Redskins Park yesterday for the beginning of the voluntary offseason workout program. And although Jim Zorn has replaced Joe Gibbs as coach, much has remained the same because the majority of last season's coaching staff was retained, several players said. "It's...

Hackett agrees to offer -- from Carolina

Free agent wide receiver D.J. Hackett won't be joining the Redskins. Hackett, who held a contract offer from the Redskins, reportedly agreed to a two-year, $3.5-million contract with the Carolina Panthers. Washington's offer wasn't close to what Hackett received from the Panthers, a league source said, and now the Redskins...
