wvusports.com The Washington Redskins signed former West Virginia star Pat White earlier this week. If used correctly, White could be a quality backup. Prior to his injury, White spent one season with the Miami Dolphins before having a small stint in professional baseball. After a few years training to get back to the professional circuit, White held a private workout at WVU’s Pro Day, while also getting some reps down in Blacksburg at Virginia Tech’s campus in front of NFL representatives. White, the 44th overall pick of the 2009 draft, spent most of his time with the Dolphins under the wildcat formation. Following White’s concussion at the end of the season, his positive attitude and mindset changed. White wanted to the quit the game he loved after being released by Miami in 2010. Current Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins feels that White could definitely add some depth to Washington and its leading position. “I felt like with Robert’s health where it is right now, to be able to ...

Redskins bring back Rex Grossman for another year

According to ProFootballtalk.com, the Washington Redskins are bringing back quarterback Rex Grossman for at least one more year. Grossman is a solid veteran, but I would be surprised if he makes the Redskins’ 53-man roster in August.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName...

Kirk Cousins wants to improve on running the read-option

Washington Redskins back up quarterback Kirk Cousins told the Washington Times that he wants to get better at running the read-option this offseason. “A guy like me, I need to be much more perfect in my ball-handling and in my reads for it to work than maybe a Robert or a Pat White has to be,” Cousins said on 980. “Now that being said, I didn’t have any reps in college with...

Push to change the Washington Redskins name continues, again

I am not a fan of the Washington Redskins or owner Daniel Snyder, but I have to applaud his resolve. For several years now, the Redskins franchise has been under attack by groups demanding that the club change the team name. It now appears that the politically correct police have come back for another round while assailing Snyder and forcing him to change the name of the team, he...

Report: Redskins Re-Sign QB Rex Grossman

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Redskins have re-signed QB Rex Grossman. This is a somewhat surprising move given that they just signed Pat White to a one-year deal and already have Kirk Cousins firmly entrenched as Robert Griffin III‘s backup. On top of that, Washington has very limited cap space and is believed to still have interest in free agent CB Antoine Winfield...

In depth 2013: Washington Redskins

On the first drive of the 2012 season for Washington, Robert Griffin III faced pressure in the pocket, stayed calm, took a hit and completed an 88-yard touchdown to Pierre Garcon en route to a 40-32 upset of New Orleans. The Redskins paid a huge price in draft picks when they moved up to select Griffin, but the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner paid immediate dividends, taking the Redskins...

Grossman agrees to 1-yr deal to return to Redskins

Rex Grossman has agreed to a one-year deal to return to the Washington Redskins. Grossman's return gives the Redskins the same trio of quarterbacks as last season, and his veteran presence is an extra piece of insurance in case Robert Griffin III doesn't recover from a serious knee injury by Week 1 in September.
