Last OTA Of The Week

Four down, four to go. The highlights: Coach Jim Zorn said that Clinton Portis and Jason Fabini missed practice with excused absences and that it's "nothing serious." He said Fabini would definitely be back for Monday's session but Portis's situation could prompt him to miss some practice next week. Portis...

Am I The Only One Who Thinks This Is Weird??

Okay, too much time on my hands waiting for the start of practice today, so I'm staring at the roster and, Eureka!, it hits me. The Skins have 90 dudes on the roster right now, and 12 of them have the same last name. Well, better put, there are six...

Don't Tip The Valet

Pulled up to The Park this morning and, where there is usually just a small, circular grass area in the middle of the parking lot, now there is a rugged 4-by-4. It's some kind of massive Ford that wouldn't be out of place in one of those "Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!!"...

Post-Practice Notes

LaRon Landry says he missed Monday's OTA session due to a family issue but plans to be around here. Coach Jim Zorn didn't make a big deal out of his absence and Landry was back with the first-team defense in practice. Zorn said thus far he has been unable to...

Skins Sign Stuart Schweigert

Skins signed the free agent safety, who spent the past four seasons with Oakland. Adds much needed depth and experience to the safety position. The Raiders took him in the third round back in 2004. In 63 career games he has four interceptions. The Redskins also released LB Rian Wallace....
