RG3 should scramble away from DC

The Washington Redskins have moved heaven and draft picks to position themselves to land Robert Griffin III, the quarterback we here in Texas affectionately like to call Superman. Nor did we cape him lightly. He earned that moniker by winning at a Baylor program many felt beyond help. The thing about the cape, or even just the socks with the cape on them, is you think you are invincible...

With Brandon Meriweather in the Redskins' fold, LaRon Landry may out in the cold

Former Bears-Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather reached agreement to join the Washington Redskins this afternoon. The two sides agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal according to a story in The Insider.

Washington Talking To Garcon

The Redskins are reportedly talking about a contract with wide receiver Pierre Garcon. Fantasy Spin: The Redskins could use playmakers at the position, and Garcon would make a fine addition after the 25-year-old pro set new highs in catches (70) and receiving yards (947) in 2011. Would bode well for quarterback Robert Griffin III as well if Washington selects him with the No. 2 pick...

Cowboys, Redskins Penalized For Overspending

Mock Draft: Washington Redskins

RG3: What We Learned

RGIII should help Redskins attract free agents

Robert Griffin III has made the Washington Redskins a more attractive destination for NFL free agents. The league's open market begins Tuesday, and the team that has finished last four years running in the NFC East can pitch a future built around the dynamic Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor. Longtime player agent Tony Agnone says the Redskins' pursuit of Griffin '...

So, we’re not getting RGIII…..and that’s OK.

No RGIII miracles by the Lake. Cecilio’s Scribe posed the question last week, and The Redskins/Daniel Snyder?/Bruce Allen?/Mike Shannahan? answered on Friday night.  That has to be a straight Dan Snyder move, right?
