The Washington Redskins gave Alfred Morris’ younger brother, Shawn Morris a try out this weekend.  Morris played college football at division III Birmingham-Southern. “Same personality, for sure,” said Redskins head coach Mike Shanhan on Sunday, via  “I’m not sure they both run the same. But what a quality young man.” Over 40 guys tried out for the Redskins this past weekend. “What we do is have our scouts look at these players and if they think somebody has an attribute where it gives them a chance to make our football team, then we bring them in,” Shanahan said.  “We brought in, like I mentioned, I believe it was 47 guys and either a scout or a coach saw something that they thought they should be in our camp and have a chance to make our football team.” Need NFL Tickets?

Bacarri Rambo Impresses Coaches at Rookie Camp

Bacarri Rambo was drafted in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins after a solid career at Georgia that would have made most think he would be selected sooner. A couple suspensions during his career with the Georgia, at least one for a failed drug test, likely caused the safety’s stock to slip. “All that’s...

Redskins reportedly still interested in Quentin Jammer

According to John Keim of the Washington Examiner, there’s still a chance the Redskins could end up signing veteran cornerback Quentin Jammer. Though it would seem unlikely that Quentin Jammer would sign with the Redskins now that they selected another corner, he’s not completely off the radar. If the Redskins remain interested – still an if – any dialogue would start...

Handing Out Grades For The Redskins Draft Picks

I really don’t like doing draft grades this early but I think this draft class for the Washington Redskins is pretty special, so I figured I would get an early jump on it. With the Redskins going into the 2013 NFL draft without a 1st round pick due to trading up for Robert Griffin III last year, the Skins needed secondary help BAD after being in the bottom of the NFL in pass defense...

Top 10 Redskins rookie seasons during Snyder era

Since Dan Snyder bought the Redskins in 1999, there have been many solid draft selections to go along with the questionable ones as well. Since Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen have taken over draft duties, Skins fans have had sort of a relief in trusting the guys in charge as opposed to most of the Vinny Cerrato era. Regardless of who has been making the selections, there has been...

Predicting the 53-man roster for Redskins

Now that the 2013 NFL Draft is over it is time to look at what the Redskins have on their roster and who might make the 53 man roster, who will be kept for the practice squad and who will go on the physically unable to perform list (PUP). These are my predictions who will make the final rosters: OFFENSE: QB: Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins, Pat White RB: Alfred Morris, Roy Helu...

RG3 Goes to the Kentucky Derby

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is literally all over the place. Just last week he was at the White House Correspondents dinner after party, and this weekend he is at the Kentucky Derby. This kid knows how to enjoy life, and might I add, look good while doing it. In an interview with NBC...

The Redskins Name Change Debate: What's The End Game?

Back in the 1980's and 90's there were protests from Native American groups surrounding arenas and stadium sites of championship finals and series when teams like the Washington Redskins were playing. These groups were protesting the use of the names by professional and collegiate teams using names of Native American or Indian nicknames like Redskins, Braves, Indians, Seminoles...
