Thirty years ago today the Washington Redskins celebrated their first ever Super Bowl victory.

Many thanks to William World News for the reminder on the anniversary.

After tearing his Achilles this past season and the fact that he’s had some off the field problems, Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis may not get the type of free agent offers he’s been hoping for.

“The general manager needs to prevent the...

CSN Washington is reporting that the Redskins CB Josh Wilson could be in line for a new contract this offseason.
Wilson will be in the last year of his contract in 2013 and is set to make $3.9 million. He carries a $5.33 million cap hit, so Washington may want to ease some of the pressure pertaining to their salary cap by getting a new deal done with Wilson.
It wasn’t a great year...

I have pulled all of the stats in the tables below along with the Steelers stats during that same span of years...
