Redskins Insider: March 7, 2010 - March 13, 2010

Restricted FA Montgomery re-signed

The Redskins have announced the re-signing of offensive lineman Will Montgomery. Montgomery, a four-year veteran, appeared in all 16 games last season and started three at guard. He was one of five linemen to start at the right guard spot in the turbulent 2009 season. The offensive linemen currently under...

A Clinton Portis-Larry Johnson backfield: What's it all about?

With Friday's signing of Larry Johnson, the Redskins' top two backs are Clinton Portis and Johnson. Wow. There are a million directions, if not more, I could take this post about those two and their history. It might be more productive, however, to simply focus on what such a tandem...

Larry Foote scheduled to visit Steelers on Monday

As it concerns free agency news, it's been a relatively quiet day thus far. Hopefully we'll have something to report on Larry Johnson soon. For now, all we have is a brief update on linebacker Larry Foote, who Thursday said he'd prefer to be an Arizona Cardinal but didn't rule...

One week in, Shanahan and Redskins clearly have more work to do

Hearing from Mike Shanahan for the first time since free agency opened last Friday, it's clear that the Redskins aren't panicking and are perfectly comfortable with their slow approach to roster building. But what's also clear, just by looking at the roster, is that there's much work that still needs...

Andre Carter is not unhappy with situation with Redskins

There have been reports recently, including in this space, about the possibility of the Redskins trading defensive end Andre Carter. And one reporter in the market has gone as far as to include Carter on the list of "unhappy Redskins." But that's simply not the case. I know Carter very...

During the recent NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, Coach Mike Shanahan stressed he expected all players to report for the voluntary conditioning program that will begin Monday at Redskins Park. Apparently, Clinton Portis got the message. "Oh, I guarantee you Clinton will be there," Shanahan said Thursday night during a...

Just because a player visits Ashburn and leaves empty-handed doesn't mean he's off the Redskins' radar. That might be worth keeping in mind on a day like today when linebacker Larry Foote mills about the Arizona Cardinals' complex. Foote was in Washington earlier this week and left without a contract,...

It seems there is no pressure on Coach Mike Shanahan and General Manager Bruce Allen to attempt to rebuild the Redskins overnight. Although Shanahan and Allen have not publicly laid out their plans, the writing appears to be on the wall in large letters. After years of questionable front-office decisions,...

Rocky McIntosh willing to make inside move in 3-4

Washington did not pursue Karlos Dansby, and Larry Foote left without a contract after visiting the complex this week, so it would seem the team still has a big hole to fill at linebacker opposite London Fletcher.

QB or not QB: Wonderlic test provides few answers

If the Redskins are intent on drafting a quarterback in the first round of next month's draft, they're no doubt at least aware of the Wonderlic scores each prospect posted. And judging by scores that were leaked today, there's a healthy bit difference between Sam Bradford and Jimmy Clausen. In...
