According to the team's press release: Tyer spent the 2002 season as a front-office administrator before retiring from the Redskins in 2003, but returned to the team upon Hall of...

What Moves Will Offseason Bring?

One of the big questions around Redskins Park - especially after the recent layoffs - is how much will owner Daniel Snyder spend on free agents? Will the budget be tight, as it was last year? Many people seem to think so. Other NFL people, who've run into Vinny Cerrato...

G. Williams Heads to Big Easy

As reported, Gregg Williams has been named defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints, which, if nothing else, figures to add another angle to the Saints' visit to FedEx in the fall. One of Williams' players is likely to be Usama Young, whom Dan Steinberg wrote about earlier this week....

Jerry Gray Update

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote that the Houston Texans were very interested in Skins secondary coach Jerry Gray for their vacant defensive coordinator position. And it turns out, he was considered a very strong candidate for the job. The Redskins, however, denied him permission to interview for the...

Redskins by Position: Quarterbacks

It's no accident that quarterback is the final position we'll look at during our two-week tour of the Redskins' roster. It's the most important position and the one that provokes some of the fiercest debates. I've been supportive of Jason Campbell's work from the get-go and still believe he is...

Skins' Inaugural Plans; Cooley Catches Caps

Forgot to link to these yesterday...Dan Steinberg reports on the Redskins' Inauguration plans (no, Portis will not be holding the Bible). He also reports that Chris and Christy Cooley recently made out/smooched/locked lips on the Caps' Kiss Cam. What I found more interesting, though, was the note on Cooley's blog...

Springs a Washingtonian of the Year

Shawn Springs was honored last night as one of 10 Washingtonians of the Year by Washingtonian Magazine. He was part of a swank scene downtown - strictly black tie - with the area's movers and shakers. Springs, a Silver Spring native, was honored for his charity work and efforts in...

Redskins by Position: Interior Offensive Line

Some of this will sound like a broken record after two weeks of going over the entire roster. But we have come to a place where, without a doubt, there is an immediate need. The Redskins have just one proven guard - Randy Thomas - under contract for 2009 and...

Redskins by Position: Offensive Tackles

My gut feeling - and this is purely a guess this far removed from the draft - is that the Redskins will use the 13th overall pick on a tackle. The offense is poor enough as it is, and if the team doesn't start the transition to some young stars...
