The Washington Redskins are looking to trade wide receiver Jabar Gaffney and have told him not to report to any offseason workouts, according to Gaffney himself. “I was very surprised,” Gaffney told the Washington Times’ John Keim. “I wanted nothing more than to play for the Redskins. I’m still looking forward to a great season with the Redskins, but I was told I don’t have to be up there now. I was told I’m being shopped around. That’s the only reason why I’m not at the voluntary workouts. I’m hoping it all blows over.” It is not yet clear whether Washington’s decision to move Gaffney has anything to do with his latest Twitter rant (which, due to the profanity and nature of his Tweets, I will not spell out anything he said), but Gaffney claims his Twitter account was hacked, and it was not he who said some derogatory things about former Florida Gators teammate and family member, Lito Sheppard. “I mean, it went from me still being a big part of the plans to I can look for a better si

Last week, Jabar Gaffney (or someone hacking Jabar Gaffney) went on a Twitter rant for the ages, and now he feels that his roster spot in Washington is in jeopardy. 

DeAngelo Hall flirts with Alex Morgan on Twitter, Morgan says she’ll attend Redskins game

Hopefully once word gets around that DeAngelo Hall and Alex Morgan were chatting back and forth on Twitter, everyone calls it flirting. That way we can see if Hall gets all worked up about it like Evan Longoria did that time when he and Morgan were chatting and everyone said he was trying to pick her up. It’s just more fun when that happens. Anyway, Hall recently tweeted back...

Robert Griffin III: “Doubters increase the power of my fuel”

NFL prospect Robert Griffin III has heard nothing but praise when it comes to his potential as an NFL quarterback. Then yesterday it was reported that an unnamed scout has told said that he’s “selfish.” Griffin responded on his Twitter account by saying that doubters only give him power. I’m fueled by faith family & what I represent. Small town kids, Military, &...

Denver LB not impressed with RG3

Von Miller isn't as enamored with Robert Griffin III as others are, but that may due to a rivalry the two had in college.

Washington Redskins All About Robert Griffin III

The NFL Draft is still a week away but that hasn't stopped the Washington Redskins from showing quarterback Robert Griffin III some love.

Cowboys and Redskins to have hearing in May

PFT is reporting that the Redskins and Cowboys will have their grievance heard in May. The grievance is over the issue of the NFL forcing them to take salary cap hits for player contracts they front-loaded in the uncapped year. The league contends that the Cowboys and Redskins violated the “spirit” of the salary cap during the uncapped year of 2010, even though the NFL approved...

Rocky McIntosh will visit Bears

Free agent linebacker Rocky McIntosh, who has spent his entire six-year career in Washington, will visit this week with the Bears, a club in desperate need of depth at the position.

RG3 vs. Andrew Luck hype kicks into high gear. Are Redskins fans going overboard?

Sports fans follow teams, but they relate to players. I know this because hits to Hog Heaven are unfailingly higher when a player leads a headline than when the topic is about the team. We saw our biggest hits this month from stories about Robert Griffin III and London Fletcher than when we wrote about the schedule or defense. Big media knows that lesson, so it's no surprise...

We are officially one week away from the 2012 NFL Draft and one week away from the complexity of the 2012 Season changing with every pick. We know how the top two picks will play out but we don’t know how the rest of the draft will play out. Expect over the next week or

Steelers Should Consider Adding Jabar Gaffney For A Late Round Draft Pick

By Cian Fahey With Mike Wallace still not certain to be on the field for the Pittsburgh Steelers this season, the team enters the NFL draft with a need for depth on the outside despite the re-signing of Jerricho Cotchery. Bringing back Cotchery, to play the Hines Ward role, as a veteran leader for quite a young group of receivers was a very astute move by Kevin Colbert in an...

Redskins schedule breakdown and predictions

The first installment of the 2012 schedule breakdown, as promised, is the Redskins. The NFL pundits came out today and said Washington has the 6th easiest schedule for 2012, but I don't see it that way. This schedule looks menacing, especially down the stretch, but it does begin with relatively winnable games. So if RG3 is able to adapt to the NFL quickly, this schedule just...
