According to the Washington Post, the Redskins have re-signed both TE Logan Paulsen and FB Darrell Young. It’s also reported that they have an agreement with LB Rob Jackson. Both Paulsen and Young received “3 year” deals but they aren’t really 3 years. Jackson has agreed to a one year deal and that is very smart for both sides. The Redskins should be in a better cap situation next season and a longer deal can be worked out for Jackson (benefit Skins) or he can test the market (benefit Jackson).
Below is a link to a video from NFL.com where Dr. James Andrews is interviewed about RG3’s recovery. It takes about a minute for them to get to RG3. It’s good to hear him mention RG3’s career and not just the first game of this upcoming season. Let the kid heal.
One of our featured sites, fanspeak.com, on our Mock Draft Database gives their opinion on “Who Helped and Hurt Themselves” in the 2013 Senior Bowl. The site also features a draft big board and in the coming weeks will add team needs and scouting reports.
DT Jordan Hill, Penn State:
-In a game with some bonafide defensive line stars, Hill did a good job showcasing himself. He played with really nice power and showed some good quickness getting to the quarterback on one play.
DL Datone Jones, UCLA:
Jones continued his big week with a nice game, showing both pass rush ability and run defense.
We’ll post content from some of our other featured and sponsor sites in the coming weeks.
Congratulations to Robert Griffin III for winning the AP’s Rookie of The Year award. He received 29 out 50 votes nationwide. Luck came in 2nd with 11 votes and Russell Williams finished with 10 votes.
Again, Congratulations RGIII
In case you missed it
The first playoff game at Fedex Field didn’t end well for the Redskins. The Redskins lost 24-14 and were eliminated from the playoffs. The Redskins jumped out to an early 14 point lead but would not score any more points in the game. They were playing with a hobbled QB in Robert Griffin III who didn’t look good most of the game. His knee eventually gave out on him forcing him from the game.
The Redskins offense never seemed to get in sync to me. The receivers looked as though they were bullied by the Seahawks and played scared. RB Alfred Morris only got 16 carries on the day and I don’t even know what’s that about. He was averaging 5 yards per carry too. I did not like the game plan offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan developed. He had a hobbled QB and he was trying to run these long developing plays knowing RGIII could escape the pressure if needed. I don’t know what Kyle was thinking when the Skins were backed up deep inside their own 3 yard line and Kyles calls some crap with fake handoffs and RG turning around in the endzone. It was one of the most ridiculous calls I’ve seen him make.
Pierre Garcon needs to learn to keep his head in the game. He simply looked as though he lost focus and did nothing in the game but argue with refs and Seahawk players. As I mentioned earlier, the WR corps looked and played as though they were intimidated by the Seahawks secondary.
Our defense made some plays but not nearly enough. They gave up 132 yards to Lynch and when it looked as though they had him stopped, he would find elsewhere to run. The Seahawks also tried to give the defense turnovers but we didn’t take them. S Reed Doughty dropped an INT that was thrown directly to him. We missed an opportunity for a fumble when Wilson kept the ball on an option read but dropped it right in front of one our defensive players. The bounces just didn’t go our way yesterday.
The big news will be what’s the status and extent of RGIII’s injury. There will also be some serious discussions on why he was allowed to play given how hobbled he was. Will Shanahan be known as the coach who killed a rookie QB in his rookie season? Redskins Nation braces itself for the worse.
The Redskins had a great season and no one expected it. They ran off 7 straight wins after the bye. The lost only one division game and they should have that one. They beat the rivaled Dallas Cowboys at Fedex Field to win the division. We have a good power runner who emerged and broke some records. We have a receiver, who when is focused, is very good and should compliment TE Fred Davis in the passing game. Finally, we hope (depending on status of knee) we have our franchise QB in RGIII.
