Haynesworth Highlights

As you'd expect, Albert Haynesworth's introductory press conference was loose and humorous. As ChrisLarry mentioned, I did indeed tweet it. You can read the tweets on our site. And sign up to follow at twitter.com/RedskinsInsider. Haynesworth immediately addressed a certain Cowboys incident and the best moment, for me, quickly followed...

A $100 Million Gamble?

My take on the free agency of Albert Haynesworth has always been buyer beware, and that was well before the possibility of signing with the Redskins arose. For a team like Washington, clearly not one player away from being a real contender and with so many holes on offense, it's...

Dockery's in Detroit (So Tempted to Call This Dr. Detroit)

A Redskins Reunion in The Big Easy?

I would not be surprised to see the New Orleans Saints to make a push for ex-Skins Shawn Springs and Marcus Washington. Both were immediate signings by Washington in 2004, when Gregg Williams was in his first year as the defensive coordinator. Now Williams is entering his first season as...

Derrick Dockery Update

The Redskins continue their interest in the guard, a former Skins draft pick, and there is a good chance he could still visit Redskins Park this weekend, according to a source. I would have to imagine that a deal for him would end this portion of free agency, with bigger...
