Redskins add safety Sha'reff Rashad and defensive lineman Joe Joseph to roster

By Rick Maese

Shuffling up their roster just one day before taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Redskins on Saturday added safety Sha'reff Rashad and defensive lineman Joe Joseph from the practice squad.

To clear space on their 53-man roster, the Redskins placed defensive end Kedric Golston on injured reserve and released defensive lineman Jeremy Clark.

Rashad will give the team some much needed depth at the safety position. Reed Doughty suffered a concussion last Sunday and has been ruled out against the Jaguars. Kareem Moore has a sore knee and is listed as questionable on the injury report.

Rashad was added to the practice squad on Nov. 8. The Central Florida product was originally signed by the New York Giants as a college free agent and spent most of the season on the practice squad there before the Giants signed him to their active roster on Dec. 30, 2009. He was released by the Giants on Sept. 9.

The Redskins also were hurting on the defensive line. Golston was the third lineman added to injured reserve in the past week. He started 13 games and finishes the season with 57 tackles, including 32 unassisted.

Clark had signed with the Redskins on Dec. 15, and was inactive for one game before being released. He's replaced by Joseph, a University of Miami product who's listed as 6 feet 2, 315 pounds and signed with the Redskins' practice squad on Dec. 15.

Joseph is a rookie who originally signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent. The Titans released him after training camp. He spent two weeks on the Giants' practice squad before New York released him on Dec. 14.

MistaMoe is right. You have to take from the draft what the draft offers. That is what makes free agency so beautiful. There are two venues from which to accrue what you need.

Last years draft was offensive linemen, running back, and cornerback heavy.

and we took offensive linemen.

This year is the draft to grab a qb.

And shanny is gonna do it. My guess is Locker.

Love these Saturday night moves. Jacksonville coaching staff will be up all night tonight looking at (college) tape and tweaking their game plan to account for these two additions, and the offense will have a 9:00 am walk-through.

In response to all the negativity toward shanny one thing that has already changed that we haven't seen in a long time and that is the development of players. For the last 10 years we made a big splash in the offseason and waited for the expensive free agents to produce. But in one year we have seen no names become stars, atleast to us, Banks, Armstrong, Torain. In my oppinion, this is what good coaches do, they humble the high profile, me centered players such as Fat Al and promote hard working team oriented athletes.

Lets not rush to judgement about shanny. Has he been perfect? No. With regard to the Dm5 he should get credit for atleast hiring him when Reid gave him up. DM5 was not good this year. And those of you who took his side is just head scratching. We were 5-8 and he skipped balls everywhere.

I agree. He has missed numerous throws, especially throws that would have been TDs. If Mcnabb played better this year. We'd have a better looking team. Of course the pessimists won this year, and they'll win next year and the next because realistically we won't win the Superbowl bowl the next few years, but neither will a handful of teams who lack the coach and QB to do it. We at least have the coach.

I agree with you, rodskin. Yes, Shanny made a mistake with DMac. He is a great team leader, but not a long-term solution. Mistake, yes, but at least he's not making a long-term mistake. We lost a couple of draft picks, but we'll just have to move on.

I like what the team is doing with these signings. They are getting a good look at a lot of players for 2011. ANd it is not costing them too much. If they can find someone they like, they will have him signed before the end of the season. This is what smart teams do.

Posted by: frediefritz | December 25, 2010 9:17 PM | Report abuse

Yeah and trading away 2 picks for a probowl QB who had a bad year in a new offense on a bad team is the best way to start your tenure.
So lets start all over again.
The Shanny optimist can overlook all the flaws but can't give DM5 a 2nd shot. You all can look at Rex and say 'he knows the O and gives us a better shot' but DM5 gets 13 games to elevate the Skins?
After the horrible year Cutler had last year do you think ANYONE in the Bears org felt that they should trade/ release/ cut him? Did anyone on the coaching staff crap on him during the year?
Please lets stop with this Reid knew what he was doing crap, if the Skins would have offered the same for Vick he would have traded Vick instead.
The point is, DM5 isn't garbage and if Shanny hadn't mishandled the whole situation we would either have a better DM5 in '11 or high round draft pick(s) for an valueable QB.
No one is anti- Shanahan, we're just anti- dumb moves...

Kyle didn't open up the playbook for McNabb the way he did for Grossman. In an anticipated response, I'll add that I wish we could have seen McNabb in year two with this offense. Again there were plays to be made and McNabb missed them. I'd venture to guess that more practice and timing with the new WRs was needed but will now never be realized.

Posted by: priceisright | December 25, 2010 9:31 PM

I think the point that needs to be made is that Shanahan overestimated and gambled on McNabb raising the talent level of this offense. This roster was a lot more than a 34 YR old QB away from being competitive. Shanahan made a TERRIBLE trade and wasted a 2nd and 4th but the only thing dumber would be to compound that mistake by not admitting it. Cut bait and rebuild..

Posted by: Rashad8o4 | December 25, 2010 10:01 PM | Report abuse

Another point that needs to be raised is that we ultimately needed more offense and not a better defense to be competitive. That is what we brought Mcnabb in for. Jason Campbell couldn't locate receivers. Mcnabb can but he can't complete them.

Defense and special teams didn't become a problem or rather a bane to our competitiveness until this year it seems.

Nothing like seeing a 4.4 and 25x w/225 combine freak of a FG kicker miss an xp.

And it's always great to see Dallas lose but their roster is superior to ours and a top 10 pick for them would suck.

A small round of applause for the Cardinals... to some degree I want Dallas to be winning games so the Skins get better draft position, but far more than that I love for them to lose. On Christmas.

Dallas loses bitterly in the final seconds by a long FG.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

John Skelton looked pretty good out there leading the comeback. We could have drafted that guy....

Beepster,
I hope you are being sarcastic. Do you think two guys who were unemployed a very short time ago are going to keep any offensive coaches up all night? They're probably saying, "These guys suck more than the guys we were planning for. I am going to let the guys sleep in tomorrow."

I'd have to agree, but I think some close second place finishes are:

-Plaxico Burress and the Giants. If nothing else, two years later they miss his durability...

-Carolina thought they were bad with Delhomme, but now they can't even generate 100 yards of passing in a game...

-Cleveland and Braylon Edwards...

Who's been suggesting that Shanahan should be fired? Have I been missing this grassroots phenomenon?

I think most of us are disappointed -- or downright bewildered -- in the way he's conducted himself this season, and I think we were all hoping for a little better record at this point, but I don't remember anyone agitating for Shanahan's firing.

What I'm saying is, that opinion piece linked above from bleacherreport is founded on a faulty premise, as far as I'm concerned.

Nobody can seriously believe that the Skins would be better off by firing Shanahan... and therefore I think that author's premise is a pile of baloney.

You reside in Portland and probably miss most of the overreactions to this trying season.

If there was a poll by Skins fans in the DMV, he would probably be fired by a majority vote.

Just goes to show how smart you are for living on the West

What separates the good coaches from the others are their motivational skills. At this level all the coaches have what it takes to be good coaches because they know the X’s and O’s of the game. It’s that ability to take what you have and maximize the talent you’re working with. The good ones cull the ones through trade or release quietly and without disturbing the team and revealing their intent. Acquire value in return. Motivational skills…That’s what we’ve lacked on this team for a very long time.
That’s what proves your metal.

I'd settle for NT, RB, and C, in that order.

The Defense obviously needs to set the point better, our running game is dead in the water until we get a reliable guy back there, and I, for one, could do with less 'Rabaching'.

I think we could be OK at Guard if last years picks (Capers/Cook) develop in any way, shape, or form. Capers especially is supposed to be an athletic guy, so I wouldn't be surprised if he starts pushing for some PT at a guard spot next year.

Would love to see a 3rd/4th for Haynesworth, since his contract is so favorable for a couple of seasons.

Thanks for the link. The article was well written. The point that was inferred I like the most is that having that one voice, scheme, etc over several draft and FA class sholud pay off in the long run with a coach that has an established record of winning in the NFL.
