McNabb's Kids Clinic will include Portis

The Redskins are wrapping up their last session of "organized team activities" this week. Media availability is Thursday, and we'll have many more updates then. The team will convene next Wednesday through Friday for a full-on mini-camp, their last team activity before training camp.

The down time allows players to pursue other activities and remind people that the current quarterback - who is working to establish strong ties to his new community - has some pretty strong ties with his old one. Donovan McNabb's annual Kids Clinic will take place Saturday in the Philadelphia suburb of Marlton, N.J. It's non-contact and open to kids aged 11-16, and apparently there's still time to register. Check out McNabb's official Web site (in the lower right-hand corner) for more details on times, etc.

"We've been able to provide a fun, energetic, atmosphere for many kids over the years," McNabb said in the release that promotes the event. "That won't change just because my uniform has."

The list of current and former NFL players who have agreed to help out at the clinic includes, of course, current and former Eagles. Brian Westbrook (there should be some interesting things to ask him), Jon Runyan, Chad Lewis, Bobby Taylor, Leonard Weaver, Jamaal Jackson, Todd Herremans, Jason Avant, Sav Rocca and Quintin Demps. Again, McNabb's roots in Philly are strong.

But also scheduled to join McNabb: Redskins running back Clinton Portis, wide receiver Devin Thomas and tight end Fred Davis. That makes for an interesting mix. Portis really stands out to me. This guy seems intent on keeping his place in the Washington backfield, even with Larry Johnson and Willie Parker (and possibly Westbrook) in the mix. McNabb has spoken about his burgeoning relationship with Portis. This is going to be one of the most fascinating dynamics of the long training camp.

We'll be back with more real news Thursday.

"We'll be back with more real news Thursday."

We live in hope.

Not saying that the RI team has reduced itself to doing little more than transcribing other people's interviews from other people's media, but we do have to wonder when was the last time that this so called team of sports reporters actually reported on anything that wasn't already initiated, researched, developed, sourced and written about by others.

From John Clayton's mailbag on ESPN.com:

Q: Now that the Redskins have acquired Trent Williams to solidify the LT position, are there any moves the Skins should be considering in order to further improve their line? They definitely still need help, so would you expect them to sign a free agent like Flozell Adams, or maybe try to trade for Jared Gaither or some other starter on the line?

Adam in Alexandria, Va.

A: While the line still needs work and more talent, there isn't a right tackle out there who makes much sense to sign. The Ravens aren't giving up Gaither for anything less than a second-round pick, so that isn't going to happen. One option would be to take Jammal Brown from the Saints and make him a right tackle, but he wouldn't be coming to Washington under a long-term deal. Adams would only be an insurance policy in case Trent Williams suffers an injury. The key to the line is Williams and how he develops -- along with Donovan McNabb getting the ball off quickly. The Redskins' line got too old two years ago, so it will take time to build it back up.

Posted by: brownwood26

I don't know Gaither individually. But the Ravens OL was good last year. The ?s about him seem to be contract, health and work ethic. Would Danny sign a guy to a big contract -- even with a questionable work ethic?

Here's reality. Our OL is still in bad shape for 2010. We're hopeful Trent Williams is great as a rookie. But he's slated to play an insanely good group of DE's and OLBs this year. Williams is going to need help. But Artis Hicks will probably need his share of help, BMW as well. We know Rabach gets eaten alive by ratliff, among others.

Bottom line, its our OL is going to be overmatched in 2010. Too many holes to plug.

But ...

By bringing in so many vets, Shanahan is showing that "future is now" mentality.

If we want to succeed in 2010, we'll need an upgrade on the OL. Plus, we need to protect the investment made at QB.

If Gaither can pass the question marks (don't know if he can), then he's likely worth the 2nd rounder.

Nate

With all due respect, the crux of this story appears to be a press release originally published on McNabb’s web site that talks about a kids camp in Philadelphia that will be attended by several NFL players, including three from the Redskins. In my humble opinion, that’s all well, good, commendable -- and sufficiently newsworthy in and of itself to share with the RI readers.

But then without any transition, supporting facts or explanation, the writer opines that Portis “seems intent” on keeping his starting position in the Redskin backfield. I guess we are left to presume that Portis is only doing this gig to advance a “burgeoning relationship” with McNabb. How you get from fact A to opinion B is beyond me, but it smacks of fluff, supposition and lazy reporting -- or the same sort of crap that we get in day in and day out from the RI staff.

I also apologize for failing to slake your interest, but I will be standing by to admire and appreciate whatever knowledge, wisdom and enlightenment you deem worthy to offer to the rest of us.

Gaither wants a large LT contract. The drafting of Williams has eliminated Gaither as an option for the team. At this point he still holds out hope as being a top end LT.

to me, an OL is usually defined more by its weakest link than by its top talent. Look to Cleveland for an example. Joe Thomas is among the best LTs in football. By the CLE OLine isn't very good.

In any given game, the weakest link is really the biggest mismatch. So having two tackles that aren't going to be overmatched is a really big deal.

I'm not so much disagreeing with this statement as modifying it: veteran o-lines frequently play well above their weakest link. That's because it's so difficult to get through a season without one or more bedeviling injuries. Guys step in who aren't ready, yet many lines continue to perform at a high level.

IMO that's what makes the o-line so hard to evaluate as individuals.

The Redskins have signed veteran wide receiver Mike Furrey and released four players including tight end Sean Ryan, the team announced on Wednesday.

Also released were cornerback Marcus McCauley, linebacker Alvin Bowen and defensive lineman Antoine Holmes.

Furrey, 6-0 and 195 pounds, has played both wide receiver and defensive back in his NFL career.

He has had greater success at wide receiver, posting 221 catches for 2,298 yards and seven touchdowns in his seven-year career.

He turned in his best season in 2006 playing in Mike Martz’s offense with the Detroit Lions. He grabbed 98 passes for 1,086 yards and six touchdowns, all career highs.

Furrey entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Indianapolis Colts in 2000. He played in the now-defunct XFL and the Arena Football League before catching on with the St. Louis Rams in 2003.

He was a wide receiver for the Rams, but due to injuries in the secondary in 2005 he converted to free safety. He posted 48 tackles and four interceptions, one of which he returned 67 yards for a touchdown.

Furrey returned to a wide receiver role in his three seasons in Detroit. Last year, he joined the Cleveland Browns and caught 23 passes for 170 yards.

Furrey, 33, joins a Redskins wide receiver corps that includes plenty of veteran depth in Santana Moss, Joey Galloway and Bobby Wade and some promising young players in Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly.

Furrey is a native of Galion, Ohio. He played college football at Northern Iowa.

Ryan’s release comes as a mild surprise.

He signed with the Redskins on March 11 to serve as a blocking tight end along-side Chris Cooley and Fred Davis. However, in off-season practices, it appears he was beaten out for playing time by second-year tight end Lee Vickers.

Bowen was on the Redskins’ roster for the final five games of the 2009 season but he did not see any playing time.

McCauley signed with the Redskins for the season finale last year but was deactivated prior to the game.

Holmes spent time on the Redskins’ practice squad last year.

Well, if the NFLPA's comments about the owner's already planning a lockout through revamped TV contracts is true, the year was made "capless" for a reason: they totally plan to lockout next March..

This would be in keeping with the Plan For A New American Century's desire to create separation between the Elites and the Masses (by committing 9-11 and instilling the Patriot Act and then the bank bailouts, to target domestic political enemies and economically enslave the lower classes by mortgaging their future)..Players are getting too uppity and rich, anyway, time to slap 'em down...

This Joke is for MoodlyMoodlyMoomoocow:

In a convent in Ireland , the 98-year-old Mother Superior lay dying. The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her last journey comfortable. They tried giving her warm milk to drink but she refused it.

One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen. Then, remembering a bottle of Irish Whiskey that had been received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened it and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.

Back at Mother Superior's bed, they held the glass to her lips. The frail nun drank a little, then a little more and before they knew it, she had finished the whole glass down to the last drop.

As her eyes brightened, the nuns thought it would be a good opportunity to have one last talk with their spiritual leader.

"Mother," the nuns asked earnestly, "Please give us some of your wisdom before you leave us."

She raised herself up in bed on one elbow, looked at them and said: "Don't sell that cow."
