Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett says a rookie safety is going to start for the Redskins this season opposite veteran Brandon Meriweather.
He has his eye on two rookies taken in the 2013 NFL Draft, Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo.
Thomas (6'1, 215) was selected in the fourth round (119th overall) and Rambo (6'0, 218) in the sixth (191st).
Both are relatively equal in terms of ability and either could win the starting job in training camp.
“I think one of them. Yeah, I really do think one of them will be on the grass. I’m not sure which one, but one of them I think is going to have to... I think they’ll all help us. I t Haslett didn’t give much away when asked to comment on what each player could bring to the team. “He’s got great ball skills,” Haslett said, via Rich Tandler of CSN Washington.
“[He] has the ability to come up with key plays, big interceptions. Both of them [Thomas and second-round CB David Amerson] led the NCAA in interceptions. Phillip’s got good size, good enough speed. The guy likes football, understands football, studies football.”
“We’re saying Rambo is a free safety and Phillip is a strong safety,” said Haslett, quickly adding that they both will need to be able to play both positions due to changes in offensive formation, motion, and other such factors.”

It seems like this entire offseason the Washington Redskins have been defending their name against the media and public in an effort to try and prove it’s not racist
Back in May, the Redskins had a guest on their show Redskins Nation, named Chief Dodson who claimed to be ”a full-blooded American Inuit chief originally from the Aleutian Tribes of Alaska” who “represents more...
Rich Tandler of CSN Washington believes the Redskins may elect to move forward with just Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins as the only quarterbacks on their 2013 roster.
As of now, Washington is still carrying Rex Grossman as their third-string quarterback, but as Tandler points out, Mike Shanahan discussed the advantages of carrying four tight ends on their roster.

Oh Dan Snyder, you just won’t learn will you.
The Washington Redskins owner, who has been defiant in his defense of the purportedly offensive team name, tried to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes by employing the services of a real life Indian chief, to put a halt to the criticism the organization has been getting.
And it would’ve worked if it wasn’t for the meddlesome...
Rex Grossman has been a good quarterback during his time in the NFL. He has also been a pretty bad one too. Lucky for him he has been streaky in a good sense enough to warrant teams keeping him around. However, he will be 33 before the '13 season starts, and didn't play a lick last season.
Could his time be close to done in the NFL?
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and rapper Wale appear to be best buddies. Last summer, Wale visited Redskins training camp and told reporters about a new nickname he had already given the rookie sensation. Now, he is apparently on RG3′s guest list for his wedding. On Tuesday, Wale joined HOT 97 in New York [...]
Everyone love's Robert Griffin III. The man has the coolest Adidas commercials, Subway for life (right?), fans are buying him wedding presents, the whole world is watching his knee--the love is definitely there for the second year quarterback of the Washington Redskins.
It is kind of hard to beat sandwiches for life, but a local Richmond, VA (where the Redskins have...
The Washington Post polled 1,106 D.C.-area residents about the Washington football team’s nickname, and the big takeaways are “61 percent [of Washingtonians] say they like the team’s name” and “among those who want to keep the Redskins’ name, 56 percent say they feel the word ‘redskin’ is inappropriate.”
That first result is predictable, and the second is pure comedy...
Is Robert Griffin III cheating on his fast food?
The Washington Redskins’ star quarterback has an endorsement deal with Subway, often pitching the chain’s sandwiches (along with other young sports luminaries like Mike Trout and Blake Griffin) in commercials. However, at least one other fast-food establishment may be making some inroads to win over RGIII.
A fan stumbled upon a...
As if Robert Griffin III's life wasn't already amazing, the Redskins quarterback now has a parking spot reserved for him at an Arby's.
Wale made an appearance at Hot97′s studio in New York this week to promote his new album and ended up revealing that he’ll be performing at Robert Griffin III’s upcoming wedding. The Washington DC rapper got a surprise call-in from RG3 while on the show, as well.

Rapper Wale just so happens to be a huge fan of Washington Redskins quarterback RGIII, and he just announced he’s performing at the Skins QB’s upcoming wedding. Wale revealed his plans on Hot 97 after he received a surprised call from RGIII himself live on-air. Sounds like this wedding will be a good one. To See the Video continue reading...
