The 2011 season did nothing more than add to the frustration for a fanbase that hasn’t seen a Redskins team win more than 10 games since 1991, a full two-decade span. Yikes.

The Washington Redskins have signed fifth-round offensive guard Adam Gettis. The four-year contract averages $575,000 per year, according to a league source. That would give it a total value of roughly $2.3 million with a signing bonus of roughly $202,000. Gettis was a second-team All-Big Ten Conference selection at Iowa. The 6-foot-2, 293-pounder started every game last season at...

Wes Welker has been locked into contract negotiations with the New England Patriots virtually since the moment the Patriots walked off the field after their Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants but there has been very little progress. Instead Welker has had the pleasure of watching the Patriots receiving core get a whole lot deeper over the offseason. The latest signing is an ex...

Tom Brady certainly enjoyed having Gaffney around in his three seasons with the Pats, even managing to target the wideout with future hall-of-famers Randy Moss and Wes Welker running routes.
To say that the New England Patriots’ wide receiver core is stacked is an understatement. Obviously answering the cries of their fans, which called for more wideouts to lessen the load put...
