—The Redskins should have a stiff competition for the No. 3 cornerback spot between veteran Alex Molden and 2002 third-rounder Rashad Bauman. Bauman won the job from Darrell Green late last season but some Redskins officials have been longtime fans of Molden, who played in the slot for San Diego on passing downs last year.
—Tackle Jon Jansen appears set to have a big year now that concerns about his contract are over. Jansen admitted that the contract looming over him in 2002 (he finally signed an extension in mid-December) was a source of significant worry.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "Speed, quickness, explosion after the catch — all the things he can do are things the guys we had last year weren't as good at. It's a whole new dimension, a whole new game with him out there." — receivers coach Steve Spurrier Jr. on wide receiver Laveranues Coles.
