Chris Wilson signs with Redskins

The Redskins signed linebacker Chris Wilson to a new contract, the team announced.

Wilson was a restricted free agent who was given a second-round tender earlier this month. He's the team's third restricted free agent to re-sign with the Redskins, joining Will Montgomery and Lorenzo Alexander.

Wilson, a three-year veteran, saw action in all 16 games last season. He was moved from defensive end to linebacker before the 2009 season.

Chris Wilson...

If only Vinny had confidence in his own personnel...we wouldn't have had to have traded for busted Jason Taylor...even though Chris Wilson had done nothing but get to the QB when he was on the field.

Thank God Vinny is gone. I feel we'll be feeling the repercussions of Vinny's inadequacies for years to come.

Good move by the F.O.

Hoping for good things from Mr. Wilson this season.

Not that that makes him unique among the Redskins, mind you.

Did he just sign his tender? Or was it an extended contract?

Way to go on the details.

This was a few posts back, after people had moved on. You decide.

Saying Taylor was Vinny's decision is like saying AH was Vinny's decision. He was just a puppet.

Man, even the conditioning program was a "mess"

Jeez, no wonder we were 0-6 in our division.

Can't give "brothas" any power or authority, or even put them in ANY major decision making positions.

Not because they're incompetent, but because that sh*t goes straight to their head.

"Former NFL QB Ryan Leaf Hoping for Plea Bargain"

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has agreed to plead guilty in his Texas drug and burglary case in exchange for 10 years of probation, attorneys in the case said Thursday.


I wonder if he'll go off on the judge the way he yelled at the San Diego Chargers press reporters who only wanted to know one thing:

"Mr. Leaf, why do you suck?"

For the really brave Cornell fan -- and who isn't these days -- you can watch the game among friends in Lexington, KY at Malone's, at 3735 Palomar Centre Drive

Bean and who ever else commented about Zorn, I know hes hated up in here. I really do not have much to say that went well for the man. But I look at how the average player talked about him, how they continued to play for him, not all players but most, and how, well, I have nothing really to support it. I just think Zorn wasn't given a full chance. He was Danny Boy's puppet, while he waited for a big name coach like Cohwer and Shanny and ZOrn was stuck in it. Thats all im saying about Zorn, I agree he wasn't any good for DC and it was time for him to go...

Moving on, Gatorskinz, please stop this. Until Tebow proves he can throw a ball without that ridiculous loop in his motion I do not want to hear about him. He was a great college player. NO one denies that. He was awesome. But his game will not translate into the nfl. If you watch his passes, while they were completed they were not accurate. He does not have a big arm and this is all with a motion he had been using since he was a kid. Asking him to completely change his windup and then expecting him to, a. keep it fixed during pressure situations, and b. maintain that same ability that his old one had is pretty ridiculous.

He is a project to say the least, and while I do not doubt his character, his leadership, and his college stats... none of that means he will be a success in the NFL.
