Washington Redskins fans will be treated to honest-to-goodness football news Monday. That is when formal offseason workouts commence for veteran players under rules of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Yes, the activity is starting about one month later than previous offseasons. Offseason and preseason "voluntary" practices were a bone of player-owner contention going into last season's labor war. (What a difference a year makes.)
Starting Monday, players return to team facilities for strength, conditioning and rehabilitation activities. In about three weeks, teams can require players to participate in on-field activities without pads or helmets.
The third phase involves as many as 10 OTAs and a minicamp. Then on to preseason in late July (Yay!).
Mark Maske has a nice write up about it that can be seen online today at washingtonpost.com.

Jabar Gaffney’s marriage does not seem to be in a good place if the tweets sent from his verified Twitter account are any indication. Thursday was apparently his anniversary with his wife, but he says she was not around. Based on a tweet he sent last Saturday, his wife is messing with free agent cornerback Lito Sheppard, who is also Gaffney’s cousin. Below is a censored version...
Washington Redskins WR Jabar Gaffney is having a bad day. Today is his anniversary but his wife wasn’t with him which seemed to set off a series of profanity laced tweets about her and curiously , NFL free agent CB Lito Sheppard. He did note the two topics weren’t related but does he not have friends? A journal? [...]
Earlier today, Washington Redskins WR Jabar Gaffney blew a fuse on Twitter. Apparantly his “soon to be ex-wife” has left him on their anniversary, and it might have something to do with former Raiders/Eagles DB Lito Sheppard. Check em’ out!

Jabar Gaffney may have officially lost it. Maybe he just found out that his NFL career has been as impressive as my short stint to the New York Sports Club last month, or maybe he found his cousin, former Philadelphia Eagle/New York Jets/Oakland Raider CB Lito Sheppard banging his (soon to be ex) wife, Terin Gaffney. Who knows? But what we do know is that Jabar went OFF on his cousin...
London Fletcher says he's returning to the Washington Redskins.
The veteran free agent linebacker announced on Twitter on Friday: ''Redskins fans your captain is back! ... Excited about returning to the Skins! The support I've received from the fans didn't go unnoticed!''
Fletcher, who turns 37 next month, has been the anchor of Washington's defense...
JABAR GAFFNEY seriously needs a hug, yall. The volatile Redskins wideout went on a Twitter rant recently, directing his ire at fellow footballer and first cousin LITO SHEPPARD. Gaffney called his cousin the biggest ‘feline’ on the planet:
Gaffney then focused his anger at his soon-to-be ex wife, Terin Gaffney:
Which caused all those amateur Twitter detectives to ponder over...
According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, the Washington Redskins are making a big push to re-sign free agent linebacker London Fletcher before Monday’s offseason workouts begin.
Fletcher is a fan favorite and veteran that has proven to be quite durable, despite the fact that he’s in his late 30′s.

Washington Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins has received full clearance to resume football activities following a seven-month rehabilitation from ACL surgery according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post. Jenkins, whom the Redskins selected out of Clemson in the second round of the 2011 draft, tore his ACL during Washingtons third preseason game and was lost for the season...
The Washington Redskins have officially announced they’ve signed free agent safety Tanard Jackson, who was just released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for failing a team physical.
Jackson is a talented young player, but he’s somehow gotten worse over the past few seasons instead of better.
Jackson has made 147 tackles, 20 assists and has missed 54 tackles in 40 games, per ProFootballFocus...

It was a surprise earlier in the week when the Tampa Bay Bucs cut once promising safety Tanard Jackson, yet it was not a surprise when Jackson resurfaced only days later, on a new team with a familiar face on...
