Getty Images Santana Moss is jumping on the Robert Griffin III bandwagon right along with Redskins teammates DeAngelo Hall and Leonard Hankerson. Adding to the long list of compliments Hall and Hankerson contributed to themselves just last week, Moss referred to RGIII as “exceptional” in an interview on NFL Network’s NFL Total Access. Dousing more fuel on the RGIII fire already raging down in Washington Moss says, “Pretty much whatever you’ve heard, you didn’t hear wrong. He’s exceptional. I think his talent is already known, what he can do. Just to be here practicing with him, just going over the plays and just seeing how he can throw the ball, that was an eye-opener for a lot of us. He’s going to get compared to a lot of folks, but I feel like he can only be himself.” Moss, a one time Pro Bowl selection, who has not been on a winning NFL team since he was drafted by the Jets in 2001 is definitely excited about the possibility of Griffin being the guy to turn things around for the ...

Rookie QB Robert Griffin III has wowed Redskins

Quarterback Robert Griffin III plans to remain focused on football until he and his fellow rookies are due back at Redskins Park on July 16 to prepare for training camp. Not that he has to do it. The Washington Redskins won't practice again for several weeks and Griffin will return to his native Texas during the break, but he won't be lounging around a pool sipping margaritas...

Fantasy value for Robert Griffin III, Roy Helu and other Redskins in 2012

Last season’s disappointing 5-11 record, placed the Redskins solidly in last place, within the ultra-competitive NFC East. While Washington was nestled firmly in the middle of the league with their ranking of 16th in total offense (336.7 YPG), their rushing attack finished a meager 25th overall, while averaging just 100.9 YPG. And even though the team fared better in passing...

Redskins' Paul fighting for spot in new role

Wide receiver Santana Moss dropped 15 pounds aiming to remain a starter at 33, free agent signees Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan are sure to play a lot and the depth chart isn't settled after that. Leonard Hankerson, a 2011 third-round pick, is expected to battle to be a regular once he's fully recovered from hip surgery and 2010 starter Anthony Armstrong and backups Terrence...

Redskins’ Chris Cooley looks healthy and ready to go

Getty Images Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley has been limited over the past couple of seasons while dealing with knee problems.  Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has indicated that he looks healthy and ready to go for the upcoming season. If Cooley can come back this season and prove that his injury woes are behind him, Fred Davis and him could prove to be one of the...

Redskins WR Brandon Banks Must Contribute Offensively To Earn A Roster Spot in 2012

Following Tuesday’s minicamp practices, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said he’s informed third year kick returner Brandon Banks that he’ll have to contribute on offense if he wants to make the team. Banks is undoubtedly an explosive player, but nagging knee injuries slowed down his ability to return kicks in 2010 and in 2011. To keep him fresh, Mike Shanahan...

RGIII ahead of schedule learning the offense

I’ve heard a lot of things about potential Redskins starting quarterback, the #2 overall pick in this year’s draft, Robert Griffin III out of Baylor. I’ve heard he’s Cam Newton 2.0. I’ve heard he’s the real deal. Thus far he has looked great in workouts, and apparently has the mental part of the NFL level down too. Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan had nothing...

Dan Steinberg, Hog Heaven and the lost art of hat tipping

Dan Steinberg quoted me today in the print version of his DC Spots Bog story on the 75th Anniversary of the signing of Sammy Baugh to the Washington Redskins. I find it odd that the online version did not contain the reference. It was disappointing, too. Now I cannot back up the brag with a live link to the story. Here is the excerpt from page D2 of the Sports Section of The Washington...

Rocky McIntosh joins Rams

Former Washington Redskins linebacker Rocky McIntosh has joined the St. Louis Rams, according to a league source.

Rams sign Rocky McIntosh

The Rams have signed free agent outside linebacker Rocky McIntosh. It’s June so there are not a lot of impact signings, if any, but this move might have any impact for the Rams. McIntosh was only still available on the market this long because he struggled in Washington’s 3-4 over the last 2 seasons, losing his starting job to Perry Riley in the middle of last season. However...
