It was widely believed that Fred Davis would be leaving the Washington Redskins, as his potential value at tight end has the potential.  The Redskins though are well aware of his value, and fully intend to keep him writes John Keim of the Washington Examiner; "The Redskins have told others they expect to re-sign Davis," The Redskins are operating with the hope and expectation that they will be able to bring Davis back. In the meantime, they might have tried to depress Davis' value by questioning his ability to come back 100 percent from a torn Achilles tendon. Keim writes that the Redskins are "likely" to be paying Davis in 2013. They have Logan Paulsen on the roster, but Davis has a much higher ceiling as a game-breaker if he's healthy. Perhaps Davis won't be back at full strength early this year, but he's a nice long-term, low-cost gamble.  The Redskins though with a franchise player recovering from one serious injury in RG3, will be wary to keep hold of another asset.

Kirk Cousins Gets No Regard, No Regard

Had Robert Griffin III not ended his season with a catastrophic knee injury, it’s quite possible that Redskins backup quarterback and future New Yorker scribe, Kirk Cousins, would be in the news more this off-season, as Washington might have considered trade offers from teams desperate for a QB.

About The Redskins’ Hiring Of ‘Spectacular Asshole’ A.J. Smith

The Redskins’ hire of A.J. Smith, San Diego’s GM from 2003-12, as a senior exec has gone curiously undercovered. I mean, the Chargers were damn good some of those years, perhaps despite of our old friends Norv Turner and Marty Schottenheimer. So I asked sports blogging pioneer and deep-core Chargers fan MJD for his perspective on how we should feel, as Redskins fans, about Mr...

Kirk Cousins called ‘Kurt’ in autograph signing promo (Picture)

God always comes up with new & creative...

CB Derek Cox Could Be An Option For Washington

John Keim of the Washington Examiner tweets that  free agent CB Derek Cox is one ”name to keep an eye on” for the Redskins next week. Cox, 26, was clearly the Jaguars’ best cornerback last season, and at times played pretty well. Washington needs to find upgrades for their secondary, so it’s not hard to see why they could have interest in Cox. The issue will obviously...
