RG3 appears as answer on 'Jeopardy!' episode

Last week, former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow made an appearance on the TV show Jeopardy! -- as an answer.

Not long after Alex Trebek asked, the Redskins quarterback was made aware and seemingly embraced his...

A closer look at Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins: Will he garner any trade interest?

In this quarterback-driven league, it is evident that without a decent one your team is most likely destined to finish in the bottom-half of the League. Kirk Cousins’ three-game audition with the Redskins cannot simply be dismissed as horrible as others speculated. There are some things us fans enjoyed, but overall, the lack of effort by the entire Redskins team really hurt the...

NFL not happy about Redskins assault rifle

Earlier we showed a Redskins assault rifle that was displayed at a gun show over the weekend. According to CBS Sports Washington,  while the gun might look cool to Skins fans,  the NFL has a big problem with it since they don’t issue marketing licenses to firearms manufacturers.

Check out this Redskins gun (Photo)

So someone had a custom Redskins gun made. The Washington Post has the details. Not really sure what to say about this, but here’s a Redskins gun, spotted over the weekend at The Nation’s Gun Show.

Why Redskins fans should defend Brian Orakpo’s ‘controversial’ comments

Washington Redskin’s linebacker, Brian Orakpo, is a 3-time pro-bowler and was a member of the NFL All-Rookie team in 2009. He is playing out the final season of his franchise tag.

Bruce Allen expects ‘announcement soon’ on Ryan Kerrigan’s future

The Redskins have until May 3 to pick up the fifth-year option on outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan’s contract, and general manager Bruce Allen said on Monday that while the team has yet to take action, he anticipated that it will soon. “The NFL has sort of an unwritten rule that you don’t make decisions until you have to. But obviously, we love Ryan, and we’ll have an announcement...

Redskins Expected To Pick Up Ryan Kerrigan’s Fifth-Year Option

  Jason La Canfora mentions that he “fully expects” the Redskins to pick up OLB Ryan Kerrigan‘s fifth-year option before Saturday’s deadline. Washington used the No. 16 overall pick on Kerrigan back in 2011. His fifth-year option would run the Redskins $7.038 million for the 2015, but this figure is only guaranteed for injury and wouldn’t prevent them from negotiating...

Power Rankings: Washington Redskins have one of the worst defenses in the NFL

The old adage is that “defense wins championships.” As discussed last week, that cliché seems more and more like a vestige of the past with each passing season, as the NFL becomes more and more focused on offense ahead of defense. But that’s not to say stopping the opponent isn’t important. After all, some of the best offenses in NFL history weren’t able to lead their...

According to Larry Hartstein of CBS Sports, Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo is still hopeful that a long term deal can be reached with the team.

Washington Redskins | Office Experts' Predictions, Make Yours!

What you see above is a picture of my office whiteboard.  Each year I poll my colleagues, find out how they view their hometown Redskins' upcoming season.  I'm not a Redskins fan in the truest sense of the word, I typically follow players more than teams, and have been a Jets fan since I was 6 years old, but I do pull for the team to do well.  That's me "BR"...

2014 Washington Redskins Season and Schedule Outlook

After going 10-6 in 2012 and making the playoffs the Redskins saw a huge drop off in 2013. The Redskins went 3-13 in 2013 and never fully lived up to their preseason expectations because of an unhealthy Robert Griffin 3. Washington saw issues with coaches, players and even more dispute on whether they should change their names or not. The 2013 season was one to forget for Washington...

Senator Harry Reid Pressures NFL To Change Washington Redskins’ Name

Commissioner Adam Silver acted swiftly and decisively to remove racism from the NBA. Now its the NFL’s turn. That was the argument made by Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid, who took to the floor at Congress on Wednesday to berate the NFL for failing to force the Washington Redskins to change their franchise name. “How long will the NFL continue to do nothing — zero —...

Former Washington Redskins player named one of 20 dumbest criminals in NFL history

On Wednesday, news broke that the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, had run into some more legal trouble.
