Redskins Insider: March 22, 2009 - March 28, 2009

Position Battle: Left DE

For now, we can't honestly call this a battle. There is only one person on the roster with every-down NFL experience at this position and that is the recently signed Renaldo Wynn. But you'd have to think that even if Phillip Daniels -- the long-time starter at this spot --...

WR Thomas Looks to Turn It Around

Following disappointing rookie campaigns for wide receivers Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas, two of the Redskins three second-round selections last year, there were questions as to whether Washington would pursue a veteran option that could provide production in the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver spot -- or whether...

Position Battle: Backup QB

Why do I have the feeling this battle might inflame more fan passion than any other? Well, perhaps it was because Colt Brennan may have generated more buzz than any player in the NFL who never came close to getting a snap last year. The rookie, inactive as the emergency...

The team is waiting for defensive tackle Kedric Golston to sign his offer. However, team sources said he has several weeks in...

Zorn on JC (Campbell and Cutler)

Redskins Coach Jim Zorn put the kibosh on Jay Cutler trade jibba jabba today in a meeting with Mark Maske and other reporters at the owners' meetings in California, reiterating that Jason Campbell is preparing for the upcoming season here. Zorn said he has not felt the need to reassure...

Position Battle: No. 3 Wide Receiver

My initial thought was to stick with the offensive-line analysis today and focus on right guard, where coaches would be pleased if a candidate emerged to push Randy Thomas. But since that candidate doesn't exist, let's look at the slugfest that features Malcolm Kelly, Devin Thomas and James Thrash duking...

Position Battle: Right Tackle

It may seem early to start discussing position battles, but heck, this is the Redskins we're talking about and you guys are always game for a good debate. Let's start with right tackle, where youngster Stephon Heyer and veteran Jon Jansen grappled for the starting spot a year ago. By...

Horton Awarded Performance-Based Money

Redskins safety Chris Horton has earned $342,197 in additional pay, thanks to the NFL's performance-based pay system. Horton's payday is the third-highest in the league, behind Chargers tackle Jeromey Clarey ($405,859) and Cardinals center Lyle Sendlein $348,134). Performance-based pay goes to players at the lower end of the pay scale,...

Should the NFL Change Regular-Season Length?

What's your thinking on whether the NFL should expand the number of regular-season games and reduce the preseason? Vote now at The League. According to Mark Maske's story today, owners will discuss the matter and sound out their television partners and players, who'd have to be on board. In any...

Skins Awarded Compensatory Pick

The NFL awarded 32 compensatory draft picks to 16 teams today, with the Redskins getting one. That pick -- they now have five -- will be the 34th of the seventh round, the 243rd overall, in the April 25-26 draft. If you're wondering whom to thank, that would be Mr....

If the Redskins Had to Pick Today...

I'm not really predisposed toward crunching all the possible draft permutations until a few weeks before the big event. It seems counterproductive because there are just too many variables and smokescreens at this point. By mid-April, things always become a little clearer as teams' draft boards come into focus. Everyone...

Is Drafting a QB at 13 the Way to Go?

One of the NFL's silly seasons is upon us, the time when teams schedule hordes of meetings with college kids, and every workout, pro day and personal meeting become the stuff of rumors and speculation. Of course, that helps keep the NFL a year-round operation, with no real lulls in...
