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...

Report: Redskins had Kirk Cousins rated as their 3rd best QB

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Washington Redskins had former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins rated as their third best quarterback going in this past weekend’s draft.  This means that he was likely only rated lower than Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III and ahead of Ryan Tannehill, Brandon Weeden, Nick Foles, Russell Wilson, etc. The Redskins drafted Cousins...

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...

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.

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.

Redskins sign free agent linebacker Jonathan Goff

The Washington Redskins have signed free agent linebacker Jonathan Goff, who played three seasons with the New York Giants before missing last year with a knee injury.

Herm Edwards has trouble counting to four

A lot of times, funny stuff happens on live TV when you're covering the same event for 243 consecutive hours.  Men start attacking other men for getting pedicures.  Average NFL prospects turn into surefire Hall of Famers.  Old men start frothing at the mouth and yell at you through the TV screen. But, basic counting is usually something that doesn't get mixed up by on...

Robert Griffin III buys his fiancée Rebecca Liddicoat a Bentley

You have to remember RG3 wasn’t always thought of as a 1st round draft pick. If you go back to his junior year some scouts *cough* Todd McShay *cough* projected him to be a Wide Receiver in the NFL. Rebecca Liddicoat has been with him for a long time, even back when he blew his knee out and people were wondering if he would ever be the same. So, while many think he should...
