6 Potential Breakout Players
With the Redskins training camp coming up on July 26th, the question some fans have been asking is “who is poised to have a breakout season this year?”
So I asked myself the same question and came up with 6 players to have a breakout year.
1. Ryan Kerrigan
To me Kerrigan has it all…size, speed, the ability to shed blocks and be a great run stuffer. Ryan came is 3rd for the defensive rookie of the year in 2011 posting some outstanding numbers. He was in on 63 tackles (41 solo), 7.5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles and 1 interception. Playing opposite of the “manbeast” Brian Orakpo, Kerrigan looks primed to have an awesome sophomore session.
NFL comparison: Brooks Reed (Houston Texans)
Prediction: 71 tackles (55 solo), 11 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and 1 interception.
2. Robert Griffin III
Dynamic! That’s what RG3 is…a wizard under center, Griff is sure to have a wonderful rookie campaign. There is a reason the Skins traded up to the number 2 spot to get thi...

Tight end Fred Davis is not likely to receive a contract extension before the July 16 deadline. The Redskins franchised Davis this offseason and are believed to have extended an offer that reflects the risk to his availability. Davis was suspended four games last season for violations of the NFL substance abuse policy. One more violation and he will be suspended for a season. He...

Washington Redskins’ first round pick, number two overall, knows he was drafted by a team with a rabid fan base who is hungry to win. And that is exactly what he wants.

It's mid-July, and training camps are between two and three weeks away. It is time to take a best-look projection at the Washington Redskins 2012 season. I do this a number of ways. Today, I will take a pragmatic look at the Redskins offense. The goal of this piece is not to throw a bottom line number out there, but to take a look at how many points and wins the Redskins...
