Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Johnson has a visit scheduled with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday. This will be the first visit for Johnson of this free agency period. Washington has executed a trade with the St. Louis Rams in order to move into the second overall selection in next month’s draft and the team has signed Rex Grossman for another year. Washington is fully expected to select Baylor QB Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick. No one in the NFL was perhaps hoping QB Alex Smith would sign someplace other than San Francisco, it might have been Josh Johnson. You could connect the dots as San Francisco as a possible landing spot for Johnson given his association with head coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh coached Josh Johnson at San Diego in the college ranks. In Josh Johnson’s senior year at San Diego, he went the entire season throwing just one interception, an interception which was caused by the ball bouncing off a players shoulder pads. He was d...

Ronde Barber, a fixture of the Tampa Bay Bucs secondary since the late 1990s, will return for his 16th season, the club announced Wednesday.

For Dan Snyder and Mike Shanahan, RG3′s pro day includes a stop at Waco’s Hooters

I’ll say Shanny had the chicken wings, while Danny boy ordered a Grilled Chicken Caesar salad, the perfect side dish for his Napoleon Complex. Dan Snyder, Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan and Bruce Allen flew down to Waco, Texas to take in Robert Griffin III’s pro day on Wednesday, and of course the first place they hit was a local Hooters. The thought of drafting RG3 has everybody...

Redskins leaders gear up for RG3's Pro Day at Hooters

I saw the tweet on my timeline this morning and thought Deadspin was up to its old tricks."Before watching RGIII throw, San Snyder and Mike Shanahan visit Hooters," shouted the headline.  Pursue the story and one finds photographic evidence that the Washington Redskins brain trust (hush yo' mouth) went to the local Hooters the night before Robert Griffin III's...

A Washington Redskins Fan and The Search for Objectivity

Besides loyalty, there is only one other trait I expect from NFL fans:The ability to remain objective.I don't want to talk to Philadelphia Eagles fans who get defensive when I tell them the truth about their team.  I don't want to hear a Baltimore Ravens fan tell me every year thattheir team will win the championship that season, even though they haven't won the title...

Redskins’ Twitter account thinks Tim Tebow to Jets is ‘awkward fit’

The news of Tim Tebow’s trade to the Jets was so captivating even the Redskins’ official Twitter account decided to weigh in: Can’t imagine a more awkward fit than Tim Tebow going to the New York Jets…Just 2 cents. — Redskins (@Redskins) March 21, 2012 Thanks for the analysis on the matter, Skins.
