Washington Redskins sign DE Ricky Jean-Francois

In Ricky Jean-Francois’ first trip to the open market in two off-seasons ago, he was given a 4-year, 22 million dollar deal by the Colts, a very weird move considering RJF had played just 715 snaps in 4 season with the 49ers from 2009-2012, after they drafted him in the 7th round.

Redskins Free Agents — Offense: Hold or Fold

The start of NFL free agency is March 10 — a mere eight days away — so let’s have a final look at the players on the 2014 roster of the Washington Redskins who will soon be on the market and whether or not it makes sense for the team to bring them back. For each player I will recommend a move, either HOLD [keep him] or FOLD [let him go]. We will begin with the offense and continue...

The Washington Redskins need to look at this interior lineman in the NFL Draft

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

3 quarterbacks the Washington Redskins should consider in free agency

It’s hard to look past the quarterback; it’s one of the few positions that even the most uneducated fan can watch and say, “That guy sucks.” Every year, the position becomes more valuable and harder to play. When you look through the league and only find a handful of truly elite quarterbacks, it’s hard not to wonder how we can’t find more human beings capable of accurately...
