Found August 03, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
It sounds like the Washington Redskins mayhave rookie safety Bacarri Rambo start right away.  So far in camp he’s taken every snap as a safety with the Skins’ first-team defense, according to the Washington Post. There’s also a chance rookie cornerback David Amerson and safety Phillip Thomas will be asked to play a lot during their first season. Rambo, a sixth-round pick out of Georgia, has taken every first-team snap at free safety. Amerson, a second-rounder out of North Carolina State, has taken more first-team snaps than any cornerback in camp — sharing the field with veterans DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson at times and other days playing in place of them. Meanwhile, Thomas — a fourth-rounder out of Fresno State — opened camp low on the depth chart but has begun to climb the ranks. Anything can change between now and Sept. 9 when Washington opens the seasonagainst Philadelphia. But if it opened today, Rambo and Amerson would start. Although inexperienced, both represent their team’s best — and in some cases, healthiest — options at their respective positions. Having rookies start on defense wouldn’t be a bad thing for the Redskins.  There secondary was one of the worst in the NFL last season.     Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

On the Rise: Aldrick Robinson

Sometimes the best things are right in front of you Juan… The Redskins almost had to use a WR by committee approach last season when Garcon was not in the lineup and even when he was, no one really stood out.  During the 2013 training camp, one WR is starting to separate himself from the others.  That guy is Aldrick Robinson.  Robinson seems to make a big play every day in practice...

Redskins RB Alfred Morris Wants To Prove Last Year Was No Fluke

Redskins Training Camp Report

In late July and early August of last year, the Washington Redskins’ energy was that of excitement and anticipation of future potential.

Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan gives a riveting performance as the sun in new commercial

Video: Redskins use helicopter to dry off practice field

The Washington Redskins called in the heavy machinery Friday morning to dry off their practice field in one of the most unorthodox ways imaginable. Apparently, a huge batch of rain swept over Richmond, Va., the home of the Redskins' training camp, Thursday night and left the field too soggy to trample on. This is when the Redskins decided to call in a helicopter to blow dry...

Like Ryan Kerrigan, Ravens’ Haloti Ngata also portrays sun in commercial (video)

  Previously, we were simultaneously amused and a bit frightened by Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan’s “star turn” (zing) as the sun in a commercial for regional window outfit, Thompson Creek Window Company.
