Found July 27, 2012 on Redskins Hog Heaven:
We are putting two plus two together and probably reaching five, but hey, that’s what bloggers do.  The Insider reported yesterday Washington's concern about the health of RBs Tim Hightower and Roy Helu. Today, NFL.com picked up on a tweet by Jason LaCanfora that the Redskins are thinking about adding Cedric Benson or Ryan Grant to the roster. Few things before i leave Redskins camp - team has had internal talks about adding a RB, with Cedric Benson and Ryan Grant the candidates... — Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) July 26, 2012 Hightower is coming back from the torn ACL that ended his season early last year. He says he is fully recovered from surgery. The coaching staff is not sure that Helu, my personal favorite of Redskins backs, is durable enough for the NFL. Helu sat out most of the offseason OTAs, thanks to nagging injuries. “Thinking about” is not the same as planning to act. It’s a just in case scenario that every front office must prepare for. Grant (29) is th...

Ex-NFL QB Colt Brennan arrested for DUI and drug possession

What is disturbing about this is Colt Brennan survived a near fatal car accident not to long ago, so more than anyone he should know the dangerous of driving while impaired. Remember these pictures? Colt Brennan — a 2007 Heisman Trophy finalist — was arrested for DUI in Hawaii this morning … and cops say drugs were involved. The former University of Hawaii star quarterback...

Washington Redskins' Friday Practice; Notes and a New Tradition

Here's we learned from the Washington Redskins' second day of open practices: The Skins are going to move receivers around the "depth chart," probably often. Yesterday, Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan were the starting two. Today, Leonard Hankerson was playing opposite Garcon, as the starting duo. Those two have made the most plays so far but the Redskins will...

Redskins claim Dezmon Briscoe off waivers

Getty Images According to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com, the Washington Redskins claimed former Buccaneers wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe off waivers on Friday, just a day after he was released by Tampa Bay. I really like this move by the Redskins.  They have some talent at the receiver position, but adding a player like Briscoe won’t hurt them at all.

RG3 carries helmets after Redskins practice (Video)

Robert Griffin III may be the Redskins’ franchise quarterback and a player they traded many draft picks to obtain, but he’s not above participating in some traditional rookie hazing. The former Heisman Trophy winner was filmed by CSN Washington carrying the helmets of his teammates after Redskins practice on Thursday. Some players around the league (and even his teammates) are...

Washington Redskins training camp thus far....

Well how do my (our) skins look.  Are you at training camp with them?  I didn't realize you were a celebrity thanks for responding to my emails.~ Tim McMurrinA. You so funny. I'm not a celebrity. They just call me RH2. We do not have press passes; thus, we are not journalists. We are smart about football, though. I am a 50-year fan who has seen it all and recognizes stuff...

RG3 carries helmets for Redskin veteran teammates (Video)

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, a.k.a. RG3, carried the helmets of some of his veteran teammates after Thursday's practice. Just because Griffin is a former Heisman Trophy winner and a multi-millionaire doesn't mean he is exempt from rookie "hazing". However, this is a time-honored tradition, and RG3 was a good sport about it. ...

Left guard back after major knee surgery

After being cut by two teams, Kory Lichtensteiger had found a home with the Washington Redskins in his third NFL season, only to see his career turn again with a major knee injury last October. As training camp opens, Lichtensteiger is solidly back in his old spot between left tackle Trent Williams and center Will Montgomery. The 27-year-old Bowling Green product acknowledges he...

Reasons For Optimism at Redskins Training Camp

  Yesterday, Bill Thompson wrote a piece on the question marks surrounding Redskins training camp and how there are a lot of unproven positions and reasons for concern when looking over the entire Skins roster. While I don’t fall in to the category of the delusional Redskins fans who always say we are going to win the Super Bowl in the offseason, I do consider myself a homer...

Here’s a picture of Magic Johnson, Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder on a boat, sans shoes

They’ve also never been in my kitchen. Magic Johnson uploaded this photo of himself with two of the more polarizing owners in the NFL to his Twitter account.  I’ve yet to figure out the context of the pic, or even whose boat this might be on.  All I know is, Magic Johnson seems like a genuinely nice guy, Jerry Jones is slowly morphing into a beautiful, elderly Dutch woman...

Redskins concerned about Roy Helu’s durability

With training camp opening up, the Washington Redskins are looking for veteran Tim Hightower to be the starter coming out of the back field even though he’s coming off ACL surgery. According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the Redskins are concerned about Roy Helu’s durability.  Head coach Mike Shanahan needs him to prove that he can be given a heavier load without getting...

2012 Fantasy Football Draft Strategy by LL Cool T

Remember the days of the boarding groups for Southwest Airlines (SWA)?  Group A, Group B, Group C and you are allowed to board the plane when your “group” was called.  Sometimes frustrating, however, if you planned properly, you could avoid being stuck in the later boarding groups which help prevent being sandwiched between the lady with a mustache that should have bought...
