Each player gives the team valuable skill at a variety of positions, and all of the reported contracts look to be friendly to both player and team. There’s a season worth of highlights for each guy, but one stands out above the rest: Rob Jackson’s interception on Tony Romo that sealed the NFC East title. (I would like to embed that video here, but the NFL won’t let me.) Expect much more news to emerge around the Skins with free agency set to begin in earnest Tuesday morning. Not all the news looks good, like reports the Skins will likely lose special teams boss Lorenzo Alexander. For now, be happy with solid moves that suggest a team trying to keep a...

Redskins re-sign Lichtensteiger: Wunderbar

The Washington Redskins finally reached five-year deal with Korey Lichtensteiger and all I can say is: Wunderbar, German for wonderful. The Redskins offensive line in 2012 was one of the best in the NFL and Lichtensteiger was one of the best members of that line. Alfred Morris could not have had his rookie record-breaking season without that offensive line. The only question it raises...

Hall reportedly signs 1-year deal

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall is back with the Washington Redskins, agreeing to a more affordable one-year contract after being cut for salary cap reasons three weeks ago. A person familiar with the deal said Monday night that Hall decided to return for approximately $2 million in 2013, a considerable drop-off from the $7.5 million in salary he would have made under his previous contract...
