Practice squad filling out (updated)

The Washington Redskins have started to fill out their practice squad for the season, and several familiar names are confirmed to have signed with the team.

Running back Ryan Torain, safety Anderson Russell, tackles Will Robinson and Selvish Capers, wide receiver Terrence Austin and defensive end Rob Jackson have all signed practice squad contracts with the team, league sources said.

Practice squad players make $5,200 a week, or $88,400 if they are on the squad for all 17 weeks of the season. Teams often sign practice squad players to the active roster if there are injuries or needs during the season.

Torain was one of the most surprising cuts out of camp, as the former Denver Bronco appeared to have edged out veteran Willie Parker and undrafted rookie Keiland Williams for the third running back spot.

Instead, the Redskins kept the unheralded Williams, who was impressive throughout preseason, and cut Parker and Torain. Torain has battled back from elbow and knee injuries that kept him out of football for the better part of the last two seasons, is familiar with Coach Mike Shanahan's offense and could move onto the active roster easily if needed.

Austin, a seventh-round draft pick out of UCLA, was another on-the-bubble player, but veteran Roydell Williams and undrafted free agent Brandon Banks edged him out on the depth chart.

Austin impressed during camp and in the preseason, and the Redskins obviously want to foster that potential.

Both Robinson and Capers showed athleticism and potential during camp, and could be players that are eventually brought up to the active roster. Robinson was on the Redskins practice squad in 2009 and saw action as a reserve late in the year after being promoted to the roster.

Jackson is in his third year with the Redskins after playing as a reserve defensive lineman in his first two years in the league. A member of the Redskins disappointing 2008 draft class, Jackson transitioned to outside linebacker this year and simply could not climb up the depth chart behind Andre Carter, Lorenzo Alexander, Brian Orakpo and Chris Wilson.

Russell, a rookie free agent out of Ohio State, was behind Kareem Moore and Reed Doughty at free safety.

5:50: The Redskins signed a total of seven players to the practice squad on Sunday. Erik Cook, the center/guard from New Mexico, is the seventh player the team added. Cook was a seventh-round draft pick, the 229th overall.

The Redskins will carry eight players, so look for one more name to be announced in the next day or so.

Austin has more upside than Williams.

Too, Austin, Thomas, Moss, Hall, and Buchanan all can return kicks, so why is it necessary to devote a roster spot to Banks?

SOME FREE AGENTS TO LOOK AT OFF THE WAIVERS

CB Tye Hill (released fr. Tennessee) -5 yr vet, 5'10", 185 lbs, avg >52 tackles & 1 INT/yr

CB Brandon McDonald (released fr. Cleveland) - 4 yr vet, 5'10", 185 lbs, avg >42 (33 solo) tackles/yr, has 2 FFs, 8 INTs, & avgs 23.1 yards after INTs for career

CB Dre' Bly (released fr. Detroit) - 12 yr vet, 5'11", 189 lbs, last year had 29 tackles, 1 sack, 2 FFs, 3 INTs, and avgd 22 yards after INT  
   
WR TJ Houshmandzadeh (released fr. Seattle) - 10 yr vet, 6'2", 203 lbs, last yr had 79 RECs for 911 yds (avg 11.5 yds), but 2 fumbles (1 lost) & only 3 TDs, would mean the departure of Roydell Williams most likely

WR Antonio Bryant (released fr. Tampa Bay/Cincinnati) - 8 yr vet, 6'1", 211 lbs, last year had 39 rec, 600 yds, 4 TDs, avg. 15.4 YAC, & 0 fumbles. Sounds like a step up.   
 
WR Laveranues Coles (released fr. Cincinnati) - old, but familiar - 11 yr vet, history of turf toe injuries when he was with us, but very productive when healthy

WR Marko Mitchell (released fr. Minnesota/Detroit/DC) - I know, I know, I know...but it HAD to be put out there   

NT Junior Siavii (released fr. Dallas) - 5 yr vet, 6'5", 315 lbs - In case either Kemoeatu doesn't work out or if Anthony Bryant was simply 'the best available backup' 

S Quintin Demps (released fr. Philadelphia) - 3 yr vet, 5'11", 206 lbs, 32 tackles, 1 sack, 2 FFs, 1 INT, & special teams experience

G Donald Thomas (released fr. Miami) - 3 yr vet, 6'4", 310 lbs, 2 yr starter @ Miami

Cork, I'm reading between the lines here. I have not heard anything official about Henson, other than he had surgery. I'm assuming that since he had it(I think Friday), team assumed no one would pick him up, so he was waived/injured(whatever that means). Again, I'm reading between the lines. He had a great game in Phoenix, was thought to be in line for the 53-man roster, then needed surgery.

Team should sign OT Adam Terry and release Vonnie Holliday.

Also, should replace WR Roydell Williams with WR Michael Clayton (TB), WR James Hardy (Buffalo), WR Josh Reed (SD), WR Demetrius Williams (Ravens) right or WR Chad Jackson (Buffalo).

Lastly, should add another safety: Macho Harris (Phi) or Quintin Demps. Both are better than Reed Doughty. Release TE Paulsen.

I'd never considered this before, but logically speaking, guys on the practice squad never actually practice.

When you practice something, you're rehearsing for when you do it "for real." But if you're on the practice squad, practice sessions ARE your "for real."

Also: it seems that linebacker is the one position where you're not seeing a lot of players getting released.

The 3-4' league-wide popularity has made linebacker depth a major necessity.

You wonder if, with so many teams running the scheme, will adaptable 'backers start to get paid and coveted like left tackles.

beep, get over it dude...Banks is on the team because Shanahan thinks he can contribute more than Austin can right away. Banks isn't exactly safe, but it seems to me with speed like that he's got a practical use on special teams and on offense.

If you stopped replaying the HORROR of that HORRIBLE fumble that was so inoccuous that we didn't lose field position on the play, let alone possession, you'd see that the team was moving the ball with him nicely on swing passes coming out of the backfield. Now that Brian Westbrook is out west, we have a need for that kind of player and he gives us that.

It's been a long offseason with no lack of discussion items on this blog. Lots of opinions, disagreements, mud slinging, and less than complimentary statements hurled at our sisters and mothers.

Each of us had our own favorites for the final 53. I personally, would have kept Austin. But the coaches get paid for a reason, the roster is set, and now it's time to get to the matter at hand..............

I accept this, and I'm looking forward to seeing him become the star that we all hope he can be. But it's not "the fumble." He also fumbled after three of his eight pass receptions. This is a serious problem. He does not handle contact well.

Keim over at the Examiner says it best on Banks:

"Good for Brandon Banks. I’m surprised only because he dropped the ball so often. But, man, that speed. It always drew you back to him. And watching his footwork on some of those pass receptions was impressive. Still, I would not feel comfortable with him deep in the opener vs. Dallas. He can improve with ball security; but the strip looked too easy. Still, that speed…and when in doubt, might as well take a guy who has something extraordinary to offer."

Too bad about Henson -- thought he had the ability. Plus, he can hold onto an INT.

I'm glad to see Darrel Young -- I want Sellers to feel the heat. Surprised that Banks was kept -- 3 fumbles on limited touches isn't a good thing. He's capable of making big plays -- for either team.

Glad to see we also kept a blocking TE, Paulsen, and I'm hopeful about Roydell Williams. He's 29 and did have a good season a few years back. But Galloway? I don't think we'll get much out of him. Would rather have had Austin stick.

But he sure scared the SJK out of opposing teams. Many teams would rather punt out of bounds than punt to him.

Posted by: frediefritz | September 5, 2010 5:12 PM | Report abuse

If I'm banks I'm taking 100 juggs punts every day after practice, and fielding every extra weird direction punt Bidwell wants to kick.

I know one of Banks muffs came on a ball that was very well kicked (or wehre he had lined up too shallow) and he had to back pedal to field the ball. In sum, he never got set in good receiving position to properly field the ball. Ball security once running with the ball can also be taught and drilled for as already discussed. Those are both teachable points...

Dollars to kumquats says one D. Smith has similar ideas.

How about the other muffs? Was he in good position for the get go and just drop the ball???

Its not like he let the ball clank off his face mask or ran sideways for three yards and just fell down. I say he's a significant upgrade over what we had there last year. At least he can take it to the house every once in a while; he may force directional punting which will increase the shank factor of the opposing punter.

I'd still sign Housh if the price is right. I like Banks on this team, he adds a bit of electricity we havent had in a long time. Torrain being cut was surprising, cause I kind of envisioned him taking over next year. But I am an SEC fan, Keiland Williams can play. If we dont find someone other than Moss they will double him, and play under coverage on Cooley. Imagine Moss, Housh, Armstrong & Thomas...Nice speed, hands and decent height.

Free safety Jordan Babineaux cut by Seattle. Worth a look? He's the dude that tackled Romo to keep him out of the end zone after the botched snap in the playoffs a few years ago. I say sign for that reason alone. I could watch this all day.

"

Fritz, I put that up here days ago and I have yet to hear someone challenge it. Hester is considered by many as the gold standard for return men, and he's got twice as many fumbles as TDs. If you have a guy who can get you multiple TDs (and Banks has yet to show that, but shows some signs), you keep him and hope you can coach him out of fumbles...Posted by: brownwood26"

I thought I challenged it. Problem is that even the really great punt returners like Hester and Dante Hall get to the end zone on a very small percentage of punt returns. And over time, opponents compensate. Hester had 94 kick returns over the past two seasons, but no TDs. Of course they've been playing him at WR, and that takes away some of his focus from returns, no doubt.

Thing that concerns me about Banks is his size. I understand he's now listed at 155 (149 before camp), but that's a small guy. DeSean Jackson returns punts at 175-180lbs, but most PRs are bigger than that. Hester is a muscular 190, so is Quan Cosby, Patrick Crayton is 205, Josh Cribbs 215. Those are guys that had 30 or more PRs last season.

Anyway, that's the great thing about football. We get to watch and see what happens.

(However, the NFL Players Association may be able to get him off the roster exempt list." Tell me why we would want a guy that could miss almost half of the regular season and is a diva??

The characteristic symptom being a sharp, intense, electric shock-like pain -- triggered by touching a specific area of the skin by washing, shaving, kissing, applying make-up, brushing the teeth - even cold air. The area most commonly affected is the mid-face, upper teeth, tongue and palate.

This condition usually has no apparent cause, save for being the indefatigable jerk of the blog.

It may have no apparent cause but it's no surprise it's a twitch paired with a jerk.

What's worse, my sources tell me you're as big of a jerk in person as you are on the internet.

If DMV were posting he would be chirping about how the dude has a catheder from his dick to a water purification system that delivers H2O to his desktop so he never dehydrates.

Regarding Reid's article that Redskins officials said AH was awful, if you're going to print this, be a man and say who at the Redskins said this or print your opinion and state is as an opinion. Reid is just trying to get notices by espn.

I mentioned this morning I was going to Worship Service at church which began at 10 am. Someone said, when I returned to RI there would still be no new posts by JReid.


Wow, it's 9:32 pm, I'm checking in and there is one new entry? Good grief with all of the moves, and news available and the Post provides us one post in over 24 hours?

Church today was interesting.
The preacher read from James 4.
Pretty strong stuff for us to consider; he certainly had my attention.

Skins?
Glad Austin and Jackson are on the PS
Appears JReid is not yet aware Jackson has been moved from DE to LB.
Sure hope our OL on the PS develop.

I'm guessing anybody who works for the redskins and knows the difference between awful football and not awful football, could be behind that quote. And the awfulness of it isn't a matter of opinion. He was in fact awful. "[N]otices by espn" not withstanding.

You left at 10 and you got back at 9. Sounds like you made a day of it -- he probably read the entire New Testament. No wonder you don't go very often.

Keeping Galloway AND Williams over Austin?? UGH. Let's just hope nobody signs him off the PS. If Dallas got him and he burned us, I'd lose it.
