John Keim of the Washington Examiner assesses the Redskins’ tight end situation as they end into the offseason. According to Keim, Redskins will have to make key decisions on tight ends Fred Davis and Chris Cooley in the coming weeks. The report underscores the Redskins’ need at the tight end position and how the team must re-sign Fred Davis. It would cost the team $6.6 million to franchise Davis for a second straight season, so the team will have to determine whether or not he’s a part of their long-term plans. A long-term agreement would most likely reduce that figure, which in turn could give them some extra cash for upgrades at other positions.

Fred Davis may not have a choice but to re-sign with the Redskins

Alfred Morris says RG3 is pushing limits with his rehab

According to Dan Hellie of NBC 4 in Washington D.C., Redskins running back Alfred Morris visited quarterback Robert Griffin III down in Pensacola, Florida and says he’s pushing the limits with his rehab.

30 Year Anniversary of the Diesel Running Over The Dolphins

Thirty years ago today the Washington Redskins celebrated their first ever Super Bowl victory. The seminal play of that game was a gutsy fourth down call from coach Joe Gibbs that gave the ball to all-awesome running back John Riggins.
