Redskins Insider: May 24, 2009 - May 30, 2009

Moss Has a Birthday-a-Palooza

Every year about this time, Santana Moss has a birthday. Technically, No. 8-9 won't hit the big 3-0 until Monday, but that's a workday (organized team activities don't really sound like work, though, do they?). As Dan Steinberg found out, that leaves a fellow with no choice but to stretch...

Zorn Evaluates Skins' Tackles

With the release of veteran Jon Jansen, the Redskins head into organized team activities over the next two weeks - and, more importantly, training camp and the season - with three primary options at right tackle. Coach Jim Zorn shared his thoughts on each. Stephon Heyer, 25, 6-foot-6, 330 pounds,...

Zorn Discusses Jansen Decision

Redskins Coach Jim Zorn said the release of veteran tackle Jon Jansen was difficult, because no coach wants to tell a 10-year veteran that he is done with the only franchise for which he has played. But he said the evaluation by the coaching staff - primarily Zorn, offensive coordinator...

Skins Release Jon Jansen (Updated)

The Redskins have released right tackle Jon Jansen, the team announced this afternoon. "This morning, Coach [Jim] Zorn, Vinny Cerrato and I met with Jon," owner Daniel M. Snyder said in a statement released by the team. "I've developed a close relationship with Jon and his family over the last...

Marcus Washington Still Looking for a Team

Former Skins linebacker Marcus Washington remains an un-signed free agent, but is intent on playing football this season. Washington parted with longtime agent Pat Dye a few weeks back, and signed with Joel Turner, who also represents safety Ryan Clark, another former Redskin and one of Washington's closest friends. After...

Wedge Rule Raises Questions

Every year the NFL tinkers a bit with the game's rules, often as a means of limiting the types of violent collisions inherent in this ultra-physical game. Often, those changes create some controversy (Are quarterbacks babied to the point of being encased in bubblewrap?), and sometimes they clearly improve the...

Why a Vick/Skins Marriage Seems Unlikely

We knew this wouldn't take long, right? Never takes too much time for people to start linking potential free agents to the Redskins, and so now Michael Vick's name is being thrown around. This is especially premature, though, even by Redskins speculation standards. Vick has two months of home confinement,...

A Tampering Primer

With the NFL investigating whether the Redskins violated anti-tampering rules during their courtship of free agent defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, it makes sense to provide a little primer on the process, I suppose. Tampering charges usually are alleged by one team against another, and while the Tennessee Titans, Haynesworth's former...
