Banks and Williams go from bubble to roster

Two of the relative surprises when the final 53-man roster was announced late Saturday were wide receivers Roydell Williams and Brandon Banks.

Both players were on the bubble as the Redskins debated whether to keep five or six receivers. For both receivers, making the roster was the final step of long uphill battles each had to overcome.

"They gave me a shot here, a shot to really show what I can do, and I think I showed enough," said Williams. "But there's more that I can do. Just got to keep working."

Williams missed the past two seasons with injuries, including a broken bone in his hand that ended his hopes of making the Redskins roster last year. Williams, selected in the fourth round of the 2005 draft by Tennessee, had his best year in 2007 when he started 14 games and caught 55 passes for 719 yards and four touchdowns. His season was ended by an injured right ankle in practice, and he was released the following preseason when he could not get healthy.

The Redskins signed Williams last season, but he suffered a finger injury and was released. This year, Williams hoped to stay healthy enough to have a shot.

"I never doubted my ability to play football," Williams said. "It was just a matter of staying healthy."

At 5-feet-7 and 150 pounds, Banks was considered by some to be too small to make it to the NFL. Banks said he heard the doubters his whole life. This preseason, however, he showed up big, doing enough to impress Redskins coaches.

Banks returned a punt 77 yards for a touchdown in the preseason opener and flashed some big-play ability. Despite three fumbles, including one lost, the Redskins felt Banks's talent was worth keeping around.

It was a moment Banks cherished, he said, because it proved the doubters wrong.

"Just all the things I've been through and coming from the bottom to the top, all the struggles and all the people that told me I couldn't make it," Banks said. "I had a point to prove and I think I did."

AH trade talks to Titans? Go Albert!

Redskins, Titans talking Albert Haynesworth trade
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 7, 2010 9:21 AM ET
While the relationship between Albert Haynesworth and the Redskins deteriorated over the weekend, MDS had a great post which essentially said this:

The Redskins either need to accept Haynesworth as a Redskin (and stop anonymously ripping him) or cut bait once and for all.

It looks like they are trying for door number two.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that the Titans and Redskins have again engaged in trade talk surrounding Haynesworth. There is no deal as of yet.

The Redskins already paid Haynesworth's massive option bonus this year, so the Titans have a chance to get a player they know best at a huge discount. The Redskins would just be admitting a massively expensive mistake that Mike Shanahan hasn't helped to fix.

Yep Dik, I remember you and I had the same WR list.

We have some burners on the roster now. Moss, Banks, Armstrong, Thomas, and heck, even Galloway; these guys all have the ability to get behind the defense with regularity. I'm giddy at the prospect of seeing Shanahan's offense taking routine deep shots with these guys.

"AH trade talks to Titans? Go Albert!"

I'm convinced the Skins are the "un-named" team in trying to trade for Vincent Jackson this past weekend. I think they are trying to get picks so they can give SD what they want and make everybody happy.

Hopefully this will all work out for the Skins in the end.

This rumor is more horseS**t.

If they trade Albert (and I don't think they will this season) the price will be steep as it should be. Sportswriters claiming the Redskins are "exhausted" with the AH situation just aren't getting it. Albert has been an invaluable object lesson for Shanahan in his first year as head coach.

You take $nyder's money now, you'd better be prepared to contribute 110%, or you'll be crushed. That's the lesson -- a good one!

Shamesworth wants to be in TN - that's where his $4-mil yacht is. That's where his mansion is even though he has homes/condos in other areas. He's been paid - CORRECTION - he's STOLEN 30+ million from the Washington Redskins over the last year and he wants to go back to TN where he can do what he wants and most importantly, not do what ever he doesn't want. A trade will get done and Haynes-Girth will not be on the roster opening night.

BOOK IT!

Yes, I know he is probably the single most talented player on the defense and maybe the team but a doosh is a doosh. Get his lardbutt out of here!

DO IT NOW!

There is no lesson with this AH saga. Shanahan like most coaches want this done his way. If you don't want to do it his way you will be shipped out. This is standard operating procedure for most NFL coaches. If traded Shanahan did not win, Albert won. He got to keep his money and go to a team that plays the 4-3.

It would have been nice to see AH show up and in shape and motivated to play. He didn't and is a constant distraction and has to go. It's a shame because I don't see this being a top 10 defense without a productive AH.

The lesson is being taught by my client, Mr. Hayneworth, not Shanahan. Think about it. Mr. Haynesworth has it all -- his health, Snyder's money and SEVERAL teams desiring his services. Our strategy has been simple from the start: Play games with us and we will play games with you. Shanahan has proceeded about as clumsily as humanly possible and has fractured his locker room as the players publicly acknowledge that their chances of winning are better with Mr.Haynesworth. Now the ham-handed Shanahan is looking at his wet paint brush and wondering how he painted himself into a corner. How I love it when a plan comes together.

My client and I wish the Redskins well. They've certainly rewarded us beyond our wildest dreams! And Thank You, little Danny.

Guss, even though I have been thinking this all along, I think you're onto something, scenario-wise.

That said, VJAX still needs a new contract too, right?

What ever, trade Haney for a tackling dummy - I couldn't care less. What I would like, however, is for Snyder to actually be quoted saying, "We got rid of that fat bag of doosh and now we can move forward."

I know it would never happen but Danny's approval rating would go through the roof.

I never root for any player to be injured but in this case I'll make an exception and pray for his Achilles to pop while he simultaneously "Theismans" his leg and blows out a knee, crapping himself while wearing white pants on national television.

If I had 3 wishes, I would burn 2 of them on that, I swear.

I couldn't disagree with this more...the only way Shanahan wins is if he restores order to his locker room and has EVERY player dedicated to the team effort. The only way he does that is by getting AH outta here. He gave it a shot (to a fault, IMO) but it's time to cut your losses. AH wasn't Shanahan's investment, so the only way he "loses" is if AH stays here undermining his best efforts.

The only loser in this is Snyder...once again he gambled that paying someone else's star would translate here and lost...

I'm so retarded that I told you weeks ago how this saga would end. And I was right. Shanahan is a loser and the locker room knows it. they don't respect a coach who places his ego above the welfare of the team.

When Dallas pushes your nose tackle and right defensive end around and runs the ball down your throat, please think fondly of Shanahan and how he bungled this whole Haynesworth affair. Mr. Haynesworth has already vowed to miss the upcoming offseason conditioning program as well if the Redskins foolishly keep him around, so there is no way out for Shanahan other than to trade him or pay him for doing nothing. My client would love to take an extended vacation near his mansion in Florida or be practice fodder while raking in even MORE millions from little Danny. Life is good.

So Shannahan should have let one selfish - check that, THEIVING - player dictate to the team how things should go?

Really? I mean, seriously?

I know you're a girl but you do know that football is a team sport don't you? You do know that a player, even an all-pro cannot just show up like Deion Sanders and play right? You are aware that no matter how it happened, Haynesworth is in the best physical shape (for him, anyway) that he's been in in about 5 years right? You do know that Shannahan gave AH every possible chance to get out of town before accepting his 20 million dollar check in April right? You do know that it was AH, not Shannahan that refused to participate in OTA's and then the "optional" minicamps right? You do know that it was Fat Albert, NOT SHANNAHAN that told the media that he wouldn't be in camp next year either right?

Do you totally absolve this fat sack of doosh of all he has done throughout this drama of an off-season? Do you?

Because, if you do, than you must love Jim Zorn because the current coach doesn't play that sh*t and I am fine with each and every action he's taken because every action he has taken has had the team and AH's preparedness to play in mind.

However, I think it is ridiculous to blame him for all of the controversy deliberately created by leaks fron unnamed Redskins "sources." Either these guys are freelancing (how likely is that with Shanahan in charge), or Shanahan thinks that he can whip Albert into shape by humiliating him. Bottom line -- It makes no sense to badmouthing Haynesworth if you want to trade him. If he is still here, start him against Dallas.
