Galloway waived; Austin activated

By Jason Reid and Rick Maese

Finally acknowledging what has been obvious for weeks, the Redskins on Saturday released unproductive wide receiver Joey Galloway and signed rookie wideout Terrence Austin from the practice squad to fill the opening on the 53-man roster.

A 16-year veteran, Galloway has contributed little in his first season with the Redskins, catching only 12 passes for 173 yards in 10 games. After the embarrassing 59-28 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan criticized Galloway, who opened the season as a starter, for his performance on a play that resulted in an interception.

The Redskins selected Austin in the seventh round (219th overall) of the 2010 draft. Also a return specialist, Austin spent the first 11 weeks of the season on the practice squad after he did not make the opening roster out of training camp.

It appeared the Redskins planned to activate Austin last week if rookie wideout-return specialist Brandon Banks was unable to play because of problems with his knee, which was recently surgically repaired. Banks, however, played in the 19-16 victory in overtime against the Tennessee Titans at LP Field.

Banks has been limited in practice with a sore knee and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota. Banks, who had arthroscopic knee surgery during the bye week, is the team's top punt and kick returner, and Austin's promotion could provide the Redskins' some special teams insurance in case Banks is unable to play Sunday. Austin was second team All-Pac 10 as a kick returner as a senior and left UCLA as the team's all-time leader in both kick and punt returns.

Galloway, who began the season starting opposite of Santana Moss, had been listed as the team's No. 3 receiver on the depth chart, ahead of Banks and Roydell Williams but behind Anthony Armstrong.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | November 27, 2010 6:57 PM | Report abuse

Sincerely, I question the judgement of the Shanahans on player selection. They brought in Larry Johnson and Willie Parker (both did not make 6 games) to compete with oft-injured CP and before you could say Jackie Robinson, reliable and experienced Ladell Betts is gone. This is not to take anything from Torrain (injured after two or so games) and Keiland Williams; these inexiperienced backs do not scare anybody in the NFL.

With the receivers, they brought in JGalloway and Roydell Williams to complement Santana Moss and they refused to play Devin Thomas until they released him. They based all their judgement on DT on the past. The guy regardless of what you say was productive mid-season last year. Armstrong is OK and Santana Moss, though vasertile and a reliable pro, he is not in the top 10 big time receivers in the League. Now he is injured and doubtful for the Vikes game.

At some point Shanny even questioned the QB, McNabb he traded for.

Joey Galloway is drafted by the Seattle Seahawks eight overall in the 1995 NFL Draft.

He finishes his college career at Ohio State ranked fourth in both career receptions with 108 and receiving yards with 1,894, and second in touchdown receptions -- behind Cris Carter with 19, who will be drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 4th round of the 1987 NFL Supplemental Draft.

Posting 283 receptions for 4,457 yards and 37 touchdowns in 71 games for the Seahawks, Dallas trades their first round picks in the 2000 and 2001 NFL Drafts to Seattle for the speedy, sure handed Galloway -- he will finish his career with the Cowboys with 151 receptions for 2,341 yards and 12 touchdowns.

In 2004, the Cowboys trade Galloway to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Keyshawn Johnson -- Joey will finish his career with the Buccaneers with 248 receptions for 3,912 yards and 28 more touchdowns.

Galloway signs a one-year deal with the New England Patriots in 2009. He is criticized for a lack of production and difficulty in learning the Patriots offense -- finishes with 7 catches for 67 yards.

Galloway then promptly signs with the Pittsburgh Steelers after wide receiver Limas Sweed was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list, but sees no action.

Galloway circuitous route makes one final twist -- through Washington. He signs with the Redskins on April 28, 2010. One week removed from his 39th birthday, he is released on November 27, 2010 -- finishing with 12 catches for 173 yards.

Joey Galloway 701 career catches for 10,950 yards, 77 TDS over 16 years.

Chris Carter 1101 career catches for 13,899 yards, 130 TDS over 16 years.

Not too shabby.

Incidentally, Santana Moss has 557 receptions for 8181 yards over ten years.

@ midas20874

Yessir, and the last time Ladell Betts was in the highlights on NFL Network, it was with the New Orleans Saints for fumbling against the Cardinals, who recovered it and ended up winning that game, and now he's injured and not even taking snaps, so that point is MOOT.

Also Devin Thomas got cut by the PANTHERS. The 2-7 PANTHERS. Even when he was here the veterans stayed on him because he was more concerned with building his modeling portfolio, than learning the offense.

Do some research, you just made a point based on 2 guys who aren't even taking snaps with the starters.

Of all the young guys they've brought in, not all will stick long term.... But some will... We have found some gems out of nowhere...Armstrong, K.

As for what he values most from his Redskins days, Jurgensen goes back to his season with Lombardi. That year, former Packer stars Paul Hornung and Max McGee came to Washington to visit their former coach during a Redskins practice. At one point in their conversation, Lombardi reportedly looked at Jurgensen and told the duo, "If we'd had him, we'd have never lost a game." This from a man who had coached Bart Starr, one of the NFL's legendary field generals.

Let's see this leaves the redskins with 2 options IMO and both are better than Galloway.

1) use Roydell Williams as the #3. He is a possession WR. Maybe the person who calls him Roydell Puking Williams forgets that in 07 he was the Titans leading receiver and helped lead them to the playoffs. He isn't going to be amazing but if he can come in and be bigger possession WR, something this team lacks because of Kelly's hamstring and ineffectiveness over the past few years then it will help the team move the chains and therefore win games

2) use both Fred Davis and Chris Cooley on 3rd downs. Right now Davis usually comes off the field on 3rd downs, which IMO is a huge, huge mistake. Fred Davis can also be a possession WR and Chris Cooley. We need this, we need a big guy for McNabb to target other than Cooley and Fred Davis or Roydell Williams can fit this need

It will be better, I know it and it should have happened last week. Everytime Davis touches the ball he goes for a big gain like Cooley does, we need to use these weapons more like we did in the 2nd half of last game

I disagree about Marvin Harrison. He's as done or even moreso than Galloway. I agree about Holmes and Crayton. The nice thing is that this 2011 Free Agent WR corp is loaded with talent. Vincent Jackson, Malcolm Floyd, Legadu Nene, Santonio Holmes, Steve Smith (car), Santana Moss (we have to resign), Braylon Edwards and Sidney Rice. We need to sign a WR in FA or draft Julio Jones (hopefully) in round 1 of the draft.

Lombardi IS one of those rare people were the person is equal to the legend. Even in DC, he showed he do more with less. The Skins were 7-5-2 in his only year here.

The prior years?
5-9
5-6-3

The following year?
6-8

In the only year under Lombardi, the team was roughly 2 games better than the surrounding years when Lombardi wasn't here.

When GB hired Lombardi, he took over a team that had 1 win the prior year. The Pack went 7-5 in Lombardi's first year in GB -- his worst record there.

Postseason, Lombardi was 9-1 and had 5 championships.

Simply put, he got the most out of his players.

WTF?!

The guy makes a move that we, who know HOPEFULLY a lot less than Mr. Millionaire Genius have been calling for since preseason, and nobody blinks? I gotta say... Better late than never, but MAN!! Late much?

And the Elway argument, it's a bit different since Elway went to THREE Super Bowls BEFORE Shanahan ever showed up.

I'd say that's a bit different then comparing Knoll, Belichik, Jimmy Johnson, etc. They kinda built their own teams into winners. Shanahan got handed basically the Colts with Peyton Manning.

I'm not here to knock Shanny. Just saying. And I think YES, you absolutely CAN win with a maniac psycho coach. No question. It might even help, whatever, we are SO far away from talking about winning it all, it's pathetic.

The turnover that will have to take place for us to have a young, good, stable team in place to make yearly runs deep in the playoffs... Don't start holding your breath.

I'll put it this way: I doubt Santana and Cooley will be here for it. I just don't see it.

I agree, there will be about 6-8 solid quarterbacks in the upcoming draft.

And just think: had they remained in college, both Mark Sanchez and Matthew Stafford would be in this draft, too.

Fans might not like it, but the redskins should take a long hard look at a young quarterback who can sit behind D McNabb before taking over.

And if it takes a first round pick to do, do it.

I'm still amazed that as much as Snyder respected Gibbs, he could not allow someone like Gibbs to be his coach: young, unknown relatively. Shanahan may be triage, but he's not the long-term solution. I don't think Kyle is the long-term answer, either.

non thinker,

You are how should I say this a complete idiot.

Shanny took over a 7-9 team in Denver from Wade Phillips in 1995, they hadn't been to a SB since 89.

It took Shanny 2 years to completley rebuild the team so in his 3rd year they won the SB.

There were 4 starters on offense left from the 94 team, Elway, Sharpe, Zimmermen and Habib.

There were 2 starters left on the defense from the 94 team, Atwater and Crocket

So no Shanny wasn't given the Colts with Peyton Manning.

Wow. A lot of ground has been covered in this list of comments. Here is what we know: Shanahan has improved this team. Attitude, culture, intellect. He's not Lombardi, but he's definitely not Zorn either. He took a really good team with a hall of fame QB and took them over the top for two Super Bowls- and don't forget how hard a repeat actually is to pull off. Hard schedule, target on your back, etc. He took several no name running backs and turned them into 1000 yd rushers. He finds talent like Rod Smith and others. Joey Galloway was a place holder- nothing more. Yeah, he didn't produce, but it was a safe bet at the beginning of the year that he would be able to contribute. Now Shanny is moving on- remember he drafted TA and kept him in house, so he's been learning the system and how to be a pro. The cupboard was pretty bare when he got here and he's done a lot with meager ingredients. Another off season and we should look like a different team- on the roster and on the field.

Flounder- you are right on. Similar situation here- a couple of keepers- Orakpo, TWilliams, Banks, Landry, and a few others. He is actually taking over a weaker team here than he did in Denver. Shanny knows you have to have a quality veteran QB, and while McNabb isn't Elway(who is) he at least stabilizes the position. Add some more young receivers, some more OL, and LB and you might have a playoff team. It's like fixing a bad college team, you recruit, sign a couple of juco players to tide you over until the freshmen develop, and off you go.

Morning folks.

If there is a type of game the Redskins would lose after an important win, it would be this one. It has the feeling of a trap game. Since we saw some big improvements last week on offense, let's hope the Redskins continue that success today but with more points.

Since Galloway is now out for Austin, this receiving corps seems to resemble more like the Eagles' receiving corps. It almost seems as though after enduring that blowout loss two weeks ago, Shanahan is adapting with Reid-style personnel: small but fast to stretch the field (which means more running room for Keiland). These speed receivers were what made Donovan successful in Philly, and I have a feeling his stats will improve with these new adjustments.

I don't exactly know what Shanahan's thinking is, but he's beginning to adapt to the personnel he has rather than force the scheme upon them. This young and quick receiving corps certainly looks like Shanahan is adjusting to Donovan's skill set. They'll be fast enough to catch more of Donovan's overthrows!

So glad at the Terrnece "To Da Hizzy" Austion-for-Joey "I Think I Broke My Hip" Galloway exchange (altho being one of the few Skins older than me made me feel pretty good about my chances at 2011 training camp). It would be great if our future WR's were a F/A from the IFL and a 7th round pick.

I agree with some of the comments that was posted related to Shanahan needing a couple more drafts in order to establish a team that can make the playoffs on a consistent basis. We as fans should not get to exited about this team reaching the playoffs this year. The front office is already on the right track (1) drafting three linemen instead of three receivers (2) five wins this year compared to four last year (3) players seem to be more prepared to play - making less bonehead mistakes (4)special team play has a better chance of taking it to the house compared to previuos seasons.

But, I am worried about this Viking game and the addition of a new head coach. Anyone who watched the game last sunday would have to say that was the best performance given by the offensive line to date and you hope they can continue to build upon it this week. If not, then it will be a long day for McNabb and us fans.

Favre is sick, and not in the good way
Posted by Mike Florio on November 28, 2010, 10:40 AM EST

Last year, when Vikings quarterback Brett Favre began to offer up a laundry list of built-in excuses for failure, in the form of a Cavity Sam-style collection of injuries, we began to add a trio of maladies for effect — lupus, swine flu, and polio.

He now has one of those three afflictions, sort of.

Per Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Favre thought he was coming down with the flu on Wednesday. He now thinks he has a sinus infection.

Either way, Favre will be “far less than 100 percent” against the Redskins, according to Zulgad.

Is there anyone who can process such information without thinking that Favre is merely hoping to deflect criticism if he throws three more interceptions? I mean, it’s a freaking sinus infection. I know an untreated sinus injection an be serious, but unless he’s got a high fever and/or he’s throwing up and/or he’s suffering from other symptoms that would tend to clash with a pair of white game pants, it’s a sinus infection.

Take a pill and shut your mouth and own it if (when) you continue to produce more turnovers than a baker on meth.

Rabach, Casey C--needs to go
Buchanon, Phillip CB-they'll keep him if no one else pans out during camp/draft
Jackson, Rob DE--He needs to goo too..no spot in this defense, maybe if we switched back to a 3-4

Daniels, Phillip DE--Hang up the helment and pick up a clipboard, would be a great move.

Holliday, Vonnie DL--should be cut..a young promising mid/late round or FA can do what he does

Lichtensteiger, Kory G--doubt he goes unless he stinks up the rest of this season..Shannahans like him, he may find a home at CENTER however, wouldn't mind that move as a backup or have one season as the starter.

Dockery, Derrick G--I'd like to keep him, but he may go because they don't like him...I'd trade for a late round pick instead of letting him walk

Carter, Andre LB--really did nothing wrong, he's just not in a system that plays to his strength..either he bulks up and play's end again, or trade him..

Blades, H.B. LB-HE STAYS..not going anywhere

Sundberg, Nick LS==get's cut only if he gets out performed or a young free agent outdoes him

Kemoeatu, Ma'ake NT---should get released, again,there has to be a big fat young guy you can get in the mid to late round, or free agency

Oldenburg, Clint OT--i don't know his name, so he has to go..

Bidwell, Josh P---huh???..Hunter is the punter

Grossman, Rex QB---i got a feeling he'll be around if we don't draft a qb, but I think you will have to let him go and let Beck be the back up, you traded for him, se what he can do.

Portis, Clinton RB--tricky..it's best to let him go because of money and injuries and RB IS THE ONLY POSITION I trust that Shannahan knows what he'd doing

Rashad, Sha'reff S..who??..cut


Horton, Chris S---I'd keep him over Doughty, but he may go because of injuries

Furrey, Mike WR--who??..dude go to foxsports.com or cbssportsline.com..cuz is not even on the roster...

Williams, Roydell WR--CUT CUT CUT.RELASE..WAIVE..SLASH, TERMINATE
