Offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger has signed his one-year, $1.26 million restricted free agent tender to remain with the Washington Redskins.
The Redskins also announced Tuesday that defensive end Adam Carriker has signed his new deal. Carriker last week agreed to a four-year, $20 million contract with $7 million guaranteed.
Lichtensteiger returns for his third season in Washington. He started the first five games at left guard last season before going on injured reserve with torn ligaments in his right knee.
Carriker also returns for his third season with the Redskins. He had 5 1/2 sacks last season.

The handwriting was on the wall with this one. LaRon Landry signed a one year, $4 million deal with the New York Jets for the 2012 NFL season. The Washington Redskins left Landry unprotected when they applied the franchise tag to a healthier Fred Davis.

The Redskins were on the Baylor campus Wednesday checking out the pro day of likely their next quarterback, Robert Griffin III. The Redskins’ contingent, which included owner Dan Snyder, head coach Mike Shanahan, his son and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, and GM Bruce Allen, flew into Waco on Tuesday and evidently soon after made their way to a local Hooters. Can’t imagine...

One of the big free agent wide receivers that the Washington Redskins were able to sign last week was Josh Morgan formerly of the San Francisco 49ers.

LaRon Landry, five years removed from being drafted No. 6 overall, is leaving the Redskins for a one-year, $4 million deal with the Jets. Not much to say other than, well, it was a strange and disappointing five years.
Good luck to The Ron, and good luck to any shirts with sleeves in the NY metropolitan area. They’ll need it.
Dan Snyder and Mike Shanahan’s visit to a Hooters in Texas is already documented on D.C. Sports Bog and Hogs Haven, so all that’s left to do is make one killer joke, right? Okay, no pressure. Whew. Here goes …

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.
