Newly signed Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather was arrested and charged with driving under the influence yesterday according to sources. Meriweather signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Redskins this offseason. As a first round draft pick by the New England Patriots in 2007, Meriweather was a two-time pro-bowler before he was released and signed by Chicago last season and
  • No shock here. Expect a suspension or two as well.
  • How about this guy losing his license because I am sure this isn't his first time. Why do these guy think they can get away with this with kind of action? This is really a disappointment. If you are an professional person, you should be held accountable.

Redskins' Brandon Meriweather arrested for DUI

Police in Virginia say Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence after he refused a breath test. Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck says the NFL player was pulled over shortly before 3 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 66 outside of Washington and failed a sobriety test after refusing a breath test. Sternbeck says the...

Washington Redskins draft backup QB in 4th round

The Washington Redskins wasted no time finding a backup quarterback for Robert Griffin. The Redskins selected Kirk Cousins in the 4th round, and will likely allow him to compete with Rex Grossman for the backup role. Despite some overdramatic reactions around the league, there will never be a competition between Griffin and Cousins. No matter where Cousins was drafted, he was going...

The Redskins Really Messed Up Their RGIII Introduction Press Conference

The Washington Redskins held an introductory press conference for the 2nd overall pick in the NFL Draft today for Robert Griffin III. The former Baylor Bear and Heisman trophy winner walked up on stage and then this screen went up that just read “Video Lock Error Ident Mode” on the NFL Network. The feed was not able to be resurrected and anything RGIII had to say was only heard...

Redskins draft SMU CB Richard Crawford

The Redskins have stuck with their Texas theme and selected SMU cornerback Richard Crawford with the first of their two seventh-round selections. The 5-foot-11, 191-pound Crawford was a college teammate of guard Josh LeRiebus, Washington's third-round pick this year, and Aldrick Robinson, one of the Redskins selections in last year's sixth round. Crawford, a two-year starter...

Redskins select Robert Griffin III, Grade A+

The Washington Redskins would have loved to get Luck, but Robert Griffin is a very nice consolation prize. He fits perfectly into the Shanahan offense and already has a few decent weapons to work with. This is exactly the pick Mike Shanahan needed to turn things around in Washington, and despite the lack of picks in upcoming drafts, I have no doubt that Daniel Snyder will make sure...

2012 NFL Draft: Redskins Select Robert Griffin III

The Washington Redskins have made their big splash to get themselves out of the NFC East basement.  Coach Shanahan has got his guy who he will fully expect to start game 1 this season. Can RGIII meet all of the hype and come in and perform like Cam Newton did this year for Carolina.  I believe he can.  He seems to have all the tools that a stud QB needs. Season Passing   Rushing...

Fan’s Redskins jersey chronicles years of QB failure topped with a glimmer of hope

Here’s hoping RG3 lives up to the hype, just so this guy never wears this Skins jersey out in public again. The quarterback situation hasn’t been much to speak of the last 9 years or so, and if you don’t believe me, just read that list of names on buddy’s jersey there. From Patrick Ramsay to Rex Grossman and every retread in between, Washington QBs have been downright depressing...

Washington Redskins release QB John Beck

The Washington Redskins already knew that they were going to move forward with a new “franchise” quarterback after they sacrificed their draft for the next three years in order to draft Baylor QB Robert Griffin III. Journeyman QB John Beck might have thought his tenure with the Washington Redskins might be safe this season. However, the Redskins shocked many NFL Draft pundits...

Redskins draft Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins

After Washington made a blockbuster trade to select Robert Griffin III second overall, the Redskins have drafted Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round. The talented Cousins won 27 games as a three-year starter and with the pick coach Mike Shanahan may have created the kind of quarterback controversy that has often enveloped the Redskins Cousins said on a conference...

Redskins cut John Beck

The Washington Redskins have released quarterback John Beck after drafting Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins with the 102nd overall pick in the draft. The Redskins drafted Baylor QB Robert Griffin III second overall and now Kirk Cousins, marking the first time the Redskins have ever drafted two quarterbacks in the first four rounds of the draft. Beck went 0-3 as a starter last season...

Washington Selects RG3

In a pick that was as surprising as the previous one, the Washington Redskins select Robert Griffin III of Baylor with the second pick. Washington traded with the Rams for this pick weeks ago with the knowledge RG3 was their guy. The expectations will be high after Cam Newton had a successful rookie season.
